: Sturm Ruger stock rises as unrest drives sales
Sturm, Ruger & Co. RGR shares rose in the extended session Wednesday after the gun maker reported a surge in sales due to police defunding protests, civil unrest, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Sturm shares rose 3.7% after hours, following a 0.4% rise in the regular session to close at $65.48. The company reported third-quarter net income of $24.6 million, or $1.39 a share, compared with $4.8 million, or 27 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Revenue rose to $145.7 million from $95 million in the year-ago quarter. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of 98 cents a share on revenue of $132 million. "Consumer demand showed no signs of letting up during the quarter as concerns about personal protection and home defense were stoked by civil unrest in some cities around the United States, the call, by some, for the reduction in funding and authority of law enforcement organizations, and the continuing COVID-19 pandemic," said Sturm Chief Executive Officer Christopher Killoy in a statement. "As a result of this unprecedented demand, inventories remained significantly reduced at all levels in the channel during the third quarter." Sturm shares are up 39% for the year, compared with a 1.3% rise in the S&P 500 index SPX.

There's Never Been a Better Time for Business Owners to Make a Move
The future is uncertain. COVID proves that.

SEE MORE Audit Alert: Why Business Owners Shouldn't Be Spooked by Captive Insurance Not only that, this election year is filled with unpredictability, especially for owners of small and midsize businesses. We are simultaneously navigating the uncertain waters of the Paycheck Protection Program as well as planning for possible changes in the business tax code.

2020 has been particularly brutal. According to MarketWatch, 55% of Yelp-listed businesses that closed due to COVID will stay closed permanently.

It's easy to see why many would assume a wait-and-see approach. Let's see who gets elected and how the tax code will change. Let's see how COVID stimulus is going to play out.

If you've found yourself saying things like this, let me be clear: This is anything but the moment to wait. I'm telling my clients that not only is it the right time to plan at least two years into the future, it's the right time to think big and consider whether an even bigger move makes sense.

Here's what you need to know to start making those plans:

Business taxes Small and midsize businesses should be building contingency plans now for whoever ends up winning the White House, as well as which party controls the House and Senate. Yes, it will take time before any legislation is passed regarding business taxes, but as COVID-19 has taught us, building those plans now and thinking at least two years ahead will set your business up for success regardless of the outcome on election night.

First, let's think about the most drastic scenario: a Democratic president and Senate. This is where I'd expect
