Demand Drives Pricing

I used yesterday’s green open to close out of my open long positions… and today I’m analyzing the exact same stocks Citigroup is analyzing as well.

consumer demand drives prices, revenue, and can largely impact the trade behavior of a company’s stock.

Today I’ve got my eyes on a stock with “unprecedented” demand…

In light of recent global civil unrest reignited by police brutality in Minneapolis a couple of weeks ago, and more recently in Atlanta, some stocks have benefited as a result.

They’re not computer companies, cell phone companies, or automotive companies.

They’re gun companies… such as Sturm Ruger (NYSE: RGR).

According to analyst James Hardiman of Wedbush Financial, demand for guns has increased by an “unprecedented” amount as citizens have become fearful for their own safety, and therefore, are purchasing self-defense products and gear, including guns.

While RGR may distribute and sell 1,000 guns per month at a predetermined price, given a surge in demand for the company’s product, they can afford to do what most companies can’t in today’s economic climate – raise their prices.

This will increase their profit, revenue, and bottom lines which directly impact the price and performance of their stock (and consequently affect financial professional sentiment).

Coincidentally, the stock is now setting up for what could be a possible breakout as soon as today’s opening bell…

RGR Daily Chart

My technical analysis is suggesting that if RGR can trade above $73.89/share, it could run to the $80/share area. If this move takes place, I’ll be interested in making a bullish move.

Now it’s no secret that markets might feel a little top-heavy to many traders, and a possible pullback could be on the way. If that happens, it’s ok. If markets pull back and the stock does too, it has room to retreat to its 20-day simple moving average line, shown in green in the chart above.

If markets and the stock do make a green-to-red move, I’ll be interested in making a fast-moving bearish move.

And of course, I’ll be in touch with a midday position update & watchlist.
