17:30 EDTCAB, RGR, SWHCGunmakers surge as Clinton vows regulatory reform
Shares of gunmakers Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Sturm Ruger (RGR) advanced Monday after presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reaffirmed her vow to expand firearm regulations following last week's Oregon shooting. REGULATORY PROMISES: Speaking at a New Hampshire town hall meeting, Hillary Clinton outlined her plan to reduce gun violence across the United States. The presidential candidate vowed to close loopholes affecting sales at gun shows and over the Internet, no longer permitting private sellers to skip background checks. Additionally, the Democrat promised to revise the so-called "default proceed" rule, which currently allows gun sales to proceed without background checks if that check is not completed within three days. Clinton also said she would strive to repeal a law preventing victims of gun crime from suing the firearm manufacturers themselves, and called for comprehensive background checks to "keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the severely mentally ill." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger rose a respective 7.29% and 2.75% during Monday's session, while hunting retailer Cabelas (CAB) advanced 2.88%. The positive moves come after a reported surge in gun sales on fears of sharply increased regulations, with Clinton notably promising to "take administrative action" on the issue.

11:32 EDTWMTAnalyst sees Amazon becoming #2 player in $425B consumables market
Amazon (AMZN) will advance to the number two position in the $425B U.S. consumables market, excluding food and beverages, by 2018, research firm Cowen predicted in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon's "multi platform approach around Prime" is enabling it to gain share in the U.S. market for goods including personal care, household, pet and baby products, Cowen analyst John Blackledge stated. Specifically, the e-commerce giant is effectively using its Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Now, Amazon Pantry and Amazon Fresh offerings to sell consumables and it has significantly increased the number of fulfillment centers it operates, lowering its delivery times, according to Blackledge. The company's delivery times are now "well ahead of (the) competition," the analyst reported. The e-commerce giant's strategy in the consumables market appears to be working, as Cowen's proprietary data indicates that the company is gaining share in the category, Blackledge wrote. Additionally, Amazon is beginning to attract more customers from Wal-Mart (WMT) and Target (TGT), he believes. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Amazon slipped 0.4% to $518.70.
