Shares of American Outdoor Brands Corp. shot up 7.4% toward a 3-month high in morning trading Thursday, after the company said it planned to spin off its Smith & Wesson gun-maker business into an independent publicly traded company. Rival gun maker Sturm Ruger & Co.'s stock rose 0.5% and shares of ammunition maker Vista Outdoor Inc. slipped 0.8%. American Outdoor expects the spinoff to be completed in the second half of 2020. Prior to completion of the spinoff, American Outdoor said it plans to call its senior notes, repay its existing bank term loan and consolidate those credit facilities into the lower interest rate revolving line of credit. American Outdoor, which will be the outdoor products and accessories business, expects to be "well capitalized" following the spinoff with zero debt.

Shares of Sturm Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson parent American Outdoor Brands Corp. rose Friday, putting them on track to snap relatively long streaks this year, after rival firearm maker Colt indicated it would stop manufacturing "modern sporting rifles"\--Colt makes AR-15 assault rifles--for the consumer market the foreseeable future. Colt said Thursday that while it remained committed to the Second Amendment, it believes it is "good sense to follow consumer demand" and adjust to changing market dynamics. "The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity," Colt said in a statement. "Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future." Sturm Ruger's stock gained 0.4%, after falling 5.0% over a six-session losing streak, the longest such stretch since it fell for eight straight sessions to Nov. 20, 2018. American Outdoor shares climbed 1.2%, after falling 13% over the previous five sessions, the longest losing streak since the six-day stretch ending June 3. Sturm Ruger's stock has lost 20% year to date and American Outdoor shares have tumbled 52%, while the S&P 500 has rallied 20%.

We all make mistakes, even investment fund giants, as Vanguard has admitted it placed gun stocks in a gun-free index. Oops Daisy As reported by Bloomberg, Vanguard bought stock in gun manufacturer Sturm Ruger & Co and mistakenly placed it in their ESG index for more than a month, which typically does not include stocks from companies that sell guns or ammunition. Index Exposure Vanguard developed the Vanguard US ESG Stock ETF to help facilitate investing in companies that meet the criteria for ESG investing, which is a way for investors to buy shares in companies or funds that meet certain ethical benchmarks. Their fund is tied to the FTSE Russell’s US All Cap Choice index, which, in theory, does not include gun manufacturers or non-renewable energy companies. The Russell index was rebalanced in June, and accidently included 11 stocks that don’t qualify as ESG. In addition to 219 shares of Sturm Ruger worth about $9,000, the index also included shares in non-ESG companies such as private prison operator Geo Group Inc. and defense contractor Halliburton Co. Vanguard spokesman Freddy Martino apologized to shareholders for the error. Passive Aggressive Index funds, more or less created by Vanguard founder Jack Bogle, are so popular that they may one day control the stock market. ESG index funds will likely continue to explode in popularity as well, as Wall Street scrambles to appease millennial investors. But, as Vanguard’s mishap shows, passive investing continues to have holes when it comes to meeting the complexities of ESG that might take a human being at the wheel to maneuver. More good news for money managers. -Michael Tedder Photo: Joshua Roberts / RUETERS
