Benchmark initiates coverage on Sturm Ruger (NYSE: RGR) with a Buy. PT $60.00.

Analyst, Mike Greene, said, "Our price target is based on a 10x FY12 EV/EBITDA multiple, which we believe is appropriate for an industry leader well positioned to expand its share of a double-digit growth market. Sturm, Ruger & Company is a leading manufacturer of pistols, revolvers, and rifles, generating 94% of its sales from the US commercial market. Ruger‘s focus on new products developed specifically for growing market segments and a dramatically improved “product-cell” manufacturing process have allowed the company to generate strong positive free cash flow, returning investors 40% of net income with a variable quarterly earnings dividend, a 2.8% annualized yield."
