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.

12:32 EDTUAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday amid another wave of earnings reports, headlined by Facebook (FB), Caterpillar (CAT), General Motors (GM) and Ford (F). The market has moved in a narrow range as investors try to digest the bevy of earnings reports that were released last night and this morning. The market has also had to battle a negative economic report on new home sales, which not only disappointed in June but saw the prior month revised lower as well. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 19K to 284K in the week ended July 19. While the BLS said there were no special factors in the claims data, they also reminded that the numbers can be very volatile at this time of year due in part to auto shutdowns. Markit's flash U.S. PMI for July dipped 1 point to 56.3 from 57.3 in June. June new home sales fell 8.1% to a 406K rate, which was worse than expected, and May's data was downwardly revised. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 52 in July from 50.7 a month earlier. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook achieved a new all-time high and its share price eclipsed $76, a level that was more than double the price of its initial public offering, after its revenue and profits beat expectations. After the report a number of Wall Street analysts hiked their price targets on the stock, with Jefferies and Topeka both raising their targets on the social network operator's stock to $100... Shares of General Motors declined more than 3% after its earnings per share, excluding special items, missed consensus expectations and its revenue also fell short of the analysts' forecast. The company took a $400M special charge related to its ignition switch compensation program, but cautioned that there is no cap on this program and it is possible the total cost could increase by another $200M. Also, GM recorded a non-cash pre-tax special charge of about $900M in the second quarter for the estimated costs of future possible recalls for "up to the next 10 years on 30M GM vehicles on the road today." In contrast, Ford reported earnings per share, excluding special items, and revenue that beat expectations and its stock rose 1%... Caterpillar dropped over 3% after its quarterly revenue missed expectations and it narrowed its outlook for full-year revenue. However, the heavy machine maker's earnings did beat the consensus forecast and it raised it fiscal year profit outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sodastream (SODA), which jumped nearly 20% after Bloomberg said the home beverage system maker is in talks with an investment firm on deal that would make it a private company and value it at about $828M, or $40 per share. Also higher following their earnings reports were Under Armour (UA), which rose 15%, and Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), which gained 5%. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were homebuilder DR Horton (DHI), which fell 10%, online travel company TripAdvisor (TRIP), which dropped 9%, and semiconductor chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 6%. Also lower was review service operator Angie's List (ANGI), which plunged 19% after reporting second quarter losses per share and revenue that were worse than expected, prompting a number of downgrades of its stock by Wall Street analysts. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 8.25, or 0.05%, to 17,094.88, the Nasdaq was up 6.10, or 0.14%, to 4,479.80, and the S&P 500 was up 2.98, or 0.15%, to 1,989.99.
