American Outdoor Brands Corporation Price and EPS Surprise
Factors to Consider
American Outdoor Brands focuses on innovation to support its organic growth strategy. As a result, it successfully launched several products and conducted product expansions in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Moreover, programs and products launched by the company in the last 12 months will likely have a positive impact on the performance of the company.
Notably, we expect the company to witness similar growth trend and reflect improved numbers in its upcoming quarterly results. In line with such developments, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter revenues is pegged at $154 million, representing a 4.05% rise on a year-over-year basis.
Furthermore, the company’s acquisition of Bubba Blade last year is expected to drive fiscal second-quarter results. In line with this, we expect the company to witness similar organic growth pattern in the second quarter, backed by the balance from the Bubba Blade acquisition. Notably, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings per share is pegged 14 cents, which reflects year-over-year growth of 2.72%.
For second-quarter fiscal 2019, American Outdoor Brands anticipates adjusted earnings of 11-15 cents per share. Revenues are anticipated to be $150-$160 million.
