Shares of gun maker's rose in premarket trade Friday, to bounce off multi-month lows, in the wake of mass shootings in New Zealand that killed at least 49 people. American Outdoor Brands Inc.'s stock gained 1.0% and Sturm Ruger & Co. shares were indicated up 1.0% ahead of the open. Ammunition maker Vista Outdoor Inc.'s stock was will inactive. Industry analysts say the regulatory environment is among the biggest catalysts for gun stocks, as fears of a stricter environment tend to increase demand. On Thursday, American Outdoor and Sturm Ruger shares initially rallied, after a Connecticut court ruled that the maker of AR-15 assault rifles could be sued over the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting in 2012, before reversing course to close lower. American Outdoor's stock fell 0.1% to suffer a 5th-straight decline and to close at a 7-month low, while Sturm Ruger's stock dropped 1.1%, a 4th decline in 5 sessions, to close at a 12-month low. American Outdoor shares have lost 9.9% over the past 12 months and Sturm Ruger's stock has gained 1.4%, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.2%.
Shares of gun makers rose Thursday, even after a Connecticut court ruled that the maker of AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifles could be sued over the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. American Outdoor Brands Corp.'s stock climbed 2.4% and Sturm Ruger & Co. shares hiked up 1.9%. Shares of ammunition maker Vista Outdoor Inc. slipped 0.2%, but pared earlier losses of as much as 1.9%. Industry analysts say the regulatory environment is among the biggest drivers of demand for guns; the stricter the environment appears, the greater the demand. Gun maker stocks have been hurt since President Trump was elected as worries over tougher regulations waned. Since the election, American Outdoor's stock has plunged 66.3%, Sturm Ruger shares have shed 20.5% and the S&P 500 has gained 31.4%. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Remington Outdoor Co., the owner of the Bushmaster rifle brand, could be sued because it violated laws by allegedly promoting the rifle as a combat weapon, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.
The selloff in gun maker American Outdoor Brands Corp.'s stock has been "overdone," said Wedbush analyst James Hardiman, but he still downgraded it to neutral from outperform, citing a lack of near-term catalysts. Hardiman also cut his stock price target to $11.00 from $13.50. The stock shed 0.6% toward a 7-month low in morning trade Wednesday, and has plunged 24% so far this month. The company reported last week fiscal third-quarter adjusted earnings and sales that beat expectations, but provided a downbeat fourth-quarter profit outlook. Hardiman said the selloff has been overdone, given the opportunity for the company to manufacture growth in 2020 without a major rebound in demand. "Investors are unlikely to get excited about the stock in the absence of such a rebound, however, while the near-term outlook, which includes the toughest [comparables] of the Trump era and a hazardous [fiscal year] 2020 guide, is more likely to further spook investors than bring them onboard," Hardiman wrote in a note to clients. He said contacts at gun shops expect a sense of urgency for gun buyers to return in fiscal 2021 as the political environment heats up, but "such a far off catalyst" is not enough to recommend buying the stock today. The stock has tumbled 24.1% over the past 12 months while the S&P 500 has gained 0.8%.
