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%.
Families of schoolchildren gunned down in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre can sue Remington Outdoor Co Inc , a Connecticut court ruled on Thursday, in a setback for gun makers long shielded from liability in mass shootings. In a 4-3 ruling widely expected to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Connecticut's highest court found the lawsuit could proceed based on a state law protecting consumers against fraudulent marketing. "The Connecticut Supreme Court has blown a very large hole into the federal immunity for firearms manufacturers in lawsuits alleging criminal misuse of the products they sell," said Timothy Lytton, a law professor at Georgia State University and author of a book on gun litigation.
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.
