11:39 EDTDKS, CAB, ELY, NKE, UA, HIBBDick's weak outlook for hunting, golf weighs on Cabela's, Callaway
Shares of sports and fitness retailer Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) are sinking after the company's first quarter results and fiscal 2014 outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Shares of a number of the the company's peers are also sliding following Dick's worse than expected outlook, particularly in golf and hunting. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Dick's reported Q1 adjusted earnings per share of 50c and revenue of $1.44B, trailing expectations of 52c and $1.46B, respectively. The company's Q1 same store sales increased 1.5%, with Dick's citing difficulties in the golf and hunting categories during the quarter. The company forecast Q2 EPS of 62c-67c, far short of the consensus of 82c, with its Q2 SSS seen to increase 1%-3%. For FY14, Dick's expects adjusted EPS of $2.70-$2.85, compared to consensus of $3.08. On the company's conference call, management said the hunting business was expected to continue its negative trend through Q2. They said the golf decline was "more concerning" than the hunting decline, and that the company has not "found the bottom" yet in golf. The company expects earnings will continue to be significantly impacted by the hunting and golf segments, as they represent 30% of annual sales. ANALYST REACTION: Following its report, research firms SunTrust and Sterne Agee both downgraded Dick's Sporting Goods to Neutral from Buy. OTHERS TO WATCH: Shares of Cabelas (CAB), a retailer of hunting, fishing, camping, and related outdoor gear, and Callaway Golf (ELY), which competes with Dick's in the golf space, are both sharply lower this morning, as are other sporting goods retailers like Big 5 Sporting Goods (BGFV), and Hibbett Sports (HIBB). Shares of Nike (NKE) and Under Armour (UA), whose sports apparel and shoes are sold at Dick's, are also lower. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dick's Sporting Goods fell $8.78, or 16.5%, to $44.38 on nearly five times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a new 52-week low of $44.24. Cabellas shares are down 4.7% to $61.43, Callaway is down 6.7% to $7.79 and Hibbett Sports is down 2.2% to %56.19.
