OT: TSCO

Tractor Supply Company: TSCO.

I have a vacation home in a rural area and everyone there is all abuzz about Tractor Supply Company building a store just outside the small town.

Probably over-priced at the moment, but I was wondering if TSCO was of any interest to those who like to analyze fundamentals?
Interesting price history, to say the least.

Thanks! Doubly interesting, I didn't know about your website.

The demographic niche for TSCO is interesting.
FWIW, generalizing from a datapoint of one, the area around my small town:
- many vacation homes, so folks with disposable income (upper-middle class I'd say, not mega-rich)
- but also many real ranchers and farmers still living in the area

That sounds much like the small town I used to live in. Mostly small acreage (5-10 acres) of "hobby farms" but some larger real farms in the area as well. The hobby farmers are the more lucrative segment from my perspective. Mostly people with disposable income but maybe not lots of real understanding of equipment and in need of some advice. We didn't have a Tractor Supply so the closest store for supplies was a Home Depot in a city about 15 miles away and they catered mainly to the suburbanites.
