FBI reports November firearm background checks up 14% to 2.56M

The FBI released November data from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, an indirect measure of monthly U.S. firearm sales.

Publicly traded companies in the space include Sturm Ruger (RGR) and Smith & Wesson (SWHC).

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tyson Foods (TSN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with the firm citing valuation and rising feed costs. 2. Sturm, Ruger (RGR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at BB&T with the firm saying that consumer demand for firearms appears to be slowing. 3. AbbVie (ABBV) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Steve Scala saying the company's analyst meeting last Friday was "solid," but did little to add to long-term visibility, while the Rova-T data reported at ASCO was "underwhelming." Scala cut his price target on AbbVie shares to $70 from $77. 4. Barracuda (CUDA) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with the firm saying its checks show that Barracuda had "a challenging" May quarter. 5. Harley-Davidson (HOG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analysts led by Patrick Archambault saying U.S. channel checks suggest Q2 registration growth has stalled, despite fewer competitive headwinds. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Outperform
Smith & Wesson upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen
Cowen analyst Cai von Rumohr upgraded Smith & Wesson (SWHC) to Outperform citing the company's "super" Q4 results and "encouraging" guidance for FY17. Smith & Wesson's guidance looks conservative even though retail gun sales slowed in May, von Rumohr tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a $28 price target for the shares. The gun maker closed yesterday up 27c to $21.75. The stock rallied 8% last night to $23.40 in after-hours trading following the company's earnings report. Competitor Sturm, Ruger (RGR) rallied 4% to $61.95 after Smith & Wesson's results.

Gun sales could continue to be strong through fall, says DA Davidson
Noting that firearm background checks jumped 28.6% year-over-year last month, DA Davidson attributes the surge to the Orlando terrorist attack and subsequent efforts to pass new gun control legislation. The firm thinks that continued pro-gun control rhetoric could create "a tailwind" for gun sales through the fall. DA Davidson says that Sportsman's Warehouse's (SPWH) valuation is attractive after the stock fell over 30% so far this year. It keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on Cabela's (CAB). Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Sturm, Ruger (RGR) manufacture guns.

Smith & Wesson potential selection by Army not included in guidance, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Cai von Rumohr said it was surprising that Smith & Wesson was not selected by the Army to compete in the testing phase of the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, project, but also noted that MHS was not included in the company's guidance. The analyst, who thinks S&W shares still look cheap, keeps an Outperform rating on the gunmaker's stock, which is down over 4% to $26.40 in pre-market trading.

Lake Street analyst Christopher Krueger downgraded Smith & Wesson to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $20 from $37. The analyst sees increased uncertainty for firearm sales. Shares the gun maker are off their highs but remain up 10c to $24.23 in afternoon trading.
