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.

11:28 EDTDKSGoPro rises after company, shareholders file to sell 10.36M shares
Shares of GoPro (GRPO) are rising in early trade after the company filed to sell 10.36M shares of its stock on behalf of the company and its stockholders. WHAT'S NEW: GoPro announced in a prospectus that it is selling about 1.29M shares of class A common stock and that selling stockholders are selling 9.073M shares of class A common stock. The holders of the company's outstanding class B common stock will hold approximately 96.1% of the voting power following this offering, with its executive officers and directors and their affiliates holding approximately 65% and CEO Nicholas Woodman holding approximately 42.5% after his sale of about 4.08M shares of class A common stock in this offering, the company explained. GoPro estimated that it will receive net proceeds of $97.1M from the sale of class A shares, assuming a public offering price of $79.15 per share. The company said it expects to use the net proceeds of this offering for general corporate purposes including working capital, adding that it may also use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire or invest in complementary businesses, technologies or assets. "However, we have no present commitments or agreements to enter into any acquisitions or make any investments," GoPro noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On November 10, GoPro shares slipped after its CEO acknowledged he planned to sell some of his stake as part of this stock offering. In a regulatory filing at that time, the company shared an email message sent by Woodman to employees, in which he assured that he plans to be a "significant shareholder in GoPro for a long time." Additionally, on its earnings conference call this morning, Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) management said it continues to be "extremely enthusiastic" about the electronics category, particularly wearables, GoPro cameras, and the Fitbit activity tracker.

The firm said it sees upside to the upcoming quarter for Ambarella (AMBA), which provides components used by GoPro in its cameras. Pacific Crest increased its price target on Ambarella shares to $55 from $47 and maintains its Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of GoPro rose 4.2% to $84.92, while Ambarella (AMBA) gained 5.8% to $51.60.
