11:39 EDTHIBB, ELY, UA, CAB, NKE, DKSDick'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.

13:33 EDTDKSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Repeating yesterday's start, the market began the session in negative territory before recapturing those losses. Early weakness was attributed to a dip in Wal-Mart (WMT) shares after the company's earnings report as well as a selloff in the Chinese market overnight. Heading into the afternoon, the market has drifted back across the flat line, with all three indices negative despite July's housing starts showing the strongest reading in eight years. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts edged up 0.2% in July to 1.206M, outpacing consensus estimates for 1.180M in the best reading since October 2007. Building permits fell 16.3% to 1.119M against expectations for 1.230M from a revised 1.337M in June, while single family starts rose 12.8% and multifamily numbers fell 17.0%. In Europe, Eurozone parliaments are set to vote on Greece's prospective bailout deal this week, with Reuters reporting earlier today that the Austrian parliament has approved the EUR86B agreement. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of National Penn (NPBC) rose nearly 17% to $12.77 after BB&T (BBT) agreed to acquire the company in a $1.8B cash and stock deal. On a conference call discussing the acquisition, BB&T CEO Kelly King called the "very, very synergistic" deal a "compelling use of capital," adding that the company expects to consolidate about 25 branches to help drive annual cost savings of $65M... Wal-Mart (WMT) fell roughly 3.2% to near $69.50 after cutting its full year earnings outlook this morning, with CFO Charles Holley noting that operating profit will see continued pressure. Meanwhile, Home Depot (HD) and Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS) saw respective gains of about 2.3% and 1.8% after their pre-market earnings reports. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Omeros (OMER), surging more than 69% to $24.58 after releasing positive preliminary data on its Phase 2 trial of OMS721 for the treatment of organ blood clots. Also higher was Inteliquent (IQNT), rising about 19% to $21.24 after announcing a three-year agreement with T-Mobile (TMUS) to provide IP voice services for the carrier. Separately, Lumber Liquidators (LL) has gained almost 5.7% to nearly $15 in afternoon trading after announcing the appointment of Jill Witter as Chief Compliance and Legal Officer. Among the noteworthy losers was Esperion (ESPR), falling over 11% despite rising 5% in pre-market trading after reporting that the ETC-1002 Phase 3 program is on track, adding that the FDA will not require a cardiovascular outcomes trial prior to the drug's potential approval. Also lower was American Apparel (APP), slipping about 1.9% after disclosing "substantial doubt" about its ability to sustain operations during the coming year. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 40.37, or 0.23%, to 17,504.81, the Nasdaq lost 26.86, or 0.53%, to 5,064.96, and the S&P 500 was lower by 6.02, or 0.29%, to 2,096.41.
