May adjusted National…

May adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System checks increased 75.2% and state-level data shows broad-based strength, with double digit growth in 49 states, KeyBanc analyst Brett Andress tells investors in a research note. While the analyst expected strong growth, he believes May "cleared an already high bar." The strength is indicative of continued "fear-based purchases" amid social unrest and COVID-19 uncertainty, says Andress. He expects positive growth in June and the coming months "as these dynamics linger." The analyst has a Sector Weight rating on Vista Outdoor.
