Gun maker Sturm Ruger's stock heads toward 6-day win streak, Smith & Wesson shares fallShares of gun maker Sturm Ruger & Co. rose 1.4% in morning trading Thursday, putting them on track for a sixth straight gain, as President Joe Biden is expected to unveil a number of executive actions as he looks to address gun violence. The stock has climbed 7.2% during its win streak, which would be the longest since the six-day win streak ended Oct. 23, 2019. Meanwhile, shares of fellow gun maker Smith & Wesson Brands Inc. fell 0.9% Thursday, after gaining in five of the previous six sessions. Industry experts have said the regulatory environment is often the biggest driver of demand for guns, and a catalyst for gun maker stocks. Biden is expected to announce tighter regulations requiring buyers of homemade firearms -- "ghost guns" -- to undergo background checks, and is expected to name former federal agent and adviser to a gun control group to be the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), . Elsewhere, ammunition and shooting accessories maker Vista Outdoor Inc.'s stock were little changed on Thursday. Over the past three months, shares of Sturm Ruger have lost 1.7%, Smith & Wesson have shed 5.5% and Vista Outdoor have rallied 15.9%, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 6.9%.
