What are analysts saying about American Outdoor Brands Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Outdoor Brands Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "American Outdoor Brands Corporation is a manufacturer and seller of firearms and accessory products for the shooting, hunting and outdoor enthusiast. The company's product comprises pistols, revolvers, rifles, guns, handcuffs and firearm-related products and accessories. It sells its products under the brand name Smith & Wesson, M&P, Thompson/Centre and Performance Centre. American Outdoor Brands Corporation, formerly known as Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation, is based in Springfield, Massachusetts. " (7/4/2017)
- 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "We continue to rate AOBC shares NEUTRAL. On the one hand, the significant underperformance in the stock (-8% after hours) would seem to be an overreaction to the modest reduction in FY17 guidance and even the more significant reduction to our FY18 numbers. On the other hand, the duration of the channel correction is a big unknown, and while management touts a more flexible manufacturing footprint than was the case during previous corrections, history would suggest that it will be difficult to make money on the stock in the current environment. We are lowering our price target from $25 to $21, which is based on 10x our new FY18 estimate of $2.09." (3/3/2017)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "AOBC reported FYQ3 (Jan) Non-GAAP EPS of $0.66 vs. our EPS / consensus estimate of $0.54 / $0.55 and $0.59 a year ago. While Q3 results were strong, demand for firearms started deteriorating in the back half of the quarter. We are revising our FY2017 estimate down a nickel to $2.35 and continue to estimate $1.70 for FY2018. We believe lower demand for firearms and discounting of prices will continue throughout 2017." (3/3/2017)
- 4. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "Q3 was an impressive beat, but channel overstock following the post election drop in gun sales suggests it will take AOBC several Q's and sharply lower EPS to bring inventory into line. But we estimate FY18 CFPS of $1.89, giving the stock support of a 9.8% cash flow yield & a modest 6.6x FY18 TEV/EBITDA. We reit our Outperform with a reset PT of $24 (8.0x FY18E EBITDA)." (3/3/2017)

Consensus Ratings for American Outdoor Brands Corporation (NASDAQ:AOBC) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
