Shares of Johnson Outdoors Inc. sank 5.9% in morning trade Monday, after the outdoor recreation company's downbeat fiscal first-quarter report, amid weakness in fishing and diving product sales and the negative impact of tariffs. Net income rose to $3.5 million, or 35 cents a share, from $235,000, or 2 cents a share, in the same period a year ago, which included a negative impact from tax reform. Sales fell 10.4% to $104.44 million, which was below the range of estimates of the two analysts surveyed by FactSet of $113.7 million to $119.9 million. Fishing sales declined 11.4% to 78.8 million and diving sales dropped 10.9% to $15.5 million, while camping sales slipped 0.4% to $5.8 million and watercraft recreation sales eased 0.7% to $4.3 million. The company said despite "various tariff mitigation efforts," it expects tariffs to have a potential $6 million-to-$9 million negative impact on fiscal 2019 profits. The stock has tumbled 22.8% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has eased 0.8%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
