More on Smith & Wesson (SWHC): FQ3 beats across the board as demand for guns continues to soar. Net profit more than tripled on a 39% surge in sales. The company says its plant has operated at full capacity for the last four quarters, yet still, the gun maker couldn't meet demand across all its firearm product lines. For the current quarter, it expects to earn $0.38 to $0.40 a share on sales of $165M to $170M, above analysts estimates of $0.30 on revenue of $155M, and also raised its FY outlook to $1.17 to $1.19 on sales of $575M to $580M. Despite the solid quarter, investors are taking some profit, as the stock is -2.7% AH.
