Quick Take: Sturm, Ruger Aiming Higher

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- David Peltier of TheStreet looked at a high-flying dividend payer you might not expect -- gun maker, Sturm, Ruger & Company (RGR - Get Report).

Peltier said investors will quickly notice the stock is up over 20% from the start of the year and will also notice the company's lofty 4.7% dividend yield, which is double that of the average company in the S&P 500 and 200 basis points higher than the 10-year Treasury yield.

With strong guns sales in 2013, Sturm, Ruger is expected to earn about $5 per share in earnings, enough to cover the current dividend payout two times over, Peltier said.

However, sales are expected to decline by 30% in 2014, which could potentially crimp any future dividend raises over that time. For this reason, Peltier suggests waiting for a pullback below $50 per share, a decline of roughly 10%.
