MA – INDUSTRY INSIDER – Smith & Wesson Brands Stock Has 48% More Upside

Smith & Wesson Brands (NASDAQ:SWBI) recently spun off its outdoor recreation business to focus on its firearms business. Because of that, one Wall Street analyst says the gunmaker is perfectly poised to garner significant momentum. Aegis analyst Rommel Dionisio initiated coverage of Smith & Wesson with a buy rating, and set a target price for its stock at $23 per share, some 48% above its close on Wednesday. Dionisio wrote Smith & Wesson should benefit from the increased demand in firearms due to a desire for protection as civil unrest persists in major cities and calls to defund police departments gain traction in certain regions, Thefly.com reports.

That could spur the demand for high-profit-margin modern sporting rifles as well as high-capacity handguns. FBI data on criminal background checks of potential gun buyers run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) shows activity surging to unprecedented levels, with investigations up over 42% year to date.  [full article]
