10:01 EDTNKEUnder Armour, Nike slide after Dick's outlook misses expectations
Shares of Under Armour (UA) and Nike (NKE) slipped after Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) provided guidance for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2015 that both missed consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Dick's Sporting Goods reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 45c on revenue of $1.64B, mostly in-line with analyst estimates of 47c on revenues of $1.64B. The company guided for Q4 EPS of $1.10-$1.25, short of the consensus estimate of $1.43. Dick's also said it anticipates FY15 adjusted EPS of $2.85-$3.00, lower than current analyst expectations of $3.19. STREET RESEARCH: Following the report, Baird analyst Justin Kleber said that Dick's Sporting Goods is the "strongest player" in its segment, which should enable the company to grow its sector-leading 10% market share at the expense of smaller competitors. The analyst added that profitability for the company should improve as volumes increase and as the company leverages its store base to fulfill further orders. Kleber said that Dick's Sporting Goods' e-commerce business will be more profitable than its brick-and-mortar business by 2017. The analyst maintained a Neutral rating and $48 price target on Dick's Sporting Goods' stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Dick's Sporting Goods dropped 17.5% to $33.67, while supplier Under Armour fell 5.6% to $84.95 and Nike was down 2% to $121.08. Dick's peers fell as well, with Finish Line (FINL) dropping 1%, Foot Locker (FL) slid 1.3% and Cabela's (CAB) dipping marginally in morning trading.
