Earnings preview: What to expect when American Outdoor Brands reports Q1 results

American Outdoor Brands Corporation (NASDAQ: AOBC) is slated to report first quarter 2020 earnings results on Thursday, August 29, after the closing bell. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.07 per share on revenue of $127 million.

The firearms industry had been experiencing weakness due to a spate of shooting tragedies and the resultant restrictions on firearms sales and calls for tougher gun control rules. The market appears to be seeing a slow recovery from this slump with a slight increase in the number of background checks for gun buyers.
