    • Smith & Wesson (NASDAQ:SWHC) resumes trading after a halt, -3.9% AH after reporting better than expected FQ2 earnings and revenues but issuing downside guidance for FQ3 and FY 2015, as weaker demand for firearms continues to hurt the bottom line.
    • For FQ3, SWHC expects EPS of $0.09-$0.11 vs. $0.20 analyst consensus estimate, and sees Q3 revenues of $113M-$118M vs. $129M consensus.
    • For FY 2015, SWHC lowers EPS guidance to $0.66-$0.70 from prior $0.89-$0.94 vs. $0.89 consensus, and reduces its revenue outlook to $504M-$508M from prior $530M-$540M vs. $531M consensus.
    • SWHC blames the 22% Y/Y decline in FQ2 revenues on lower consumer demand and competitors' excess inventory at distributor and retailer locations, which followed an earlier surge period when consumers purchased firearms in anticipation of possible restrictive regulations.
