10:01 EDTFLUnder 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.

16:24 EDTSIALOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks on Wall Street ended a tough week on a down note, falling after the Commerce Department reported that retail sales grew by an anemic 0.1% last month. This data comes on the heels of this week's downbeat quarterly report from Macy's (M) and a similarly disappointing report last night from peer Nordstrom (JWN). ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales rose 0.1% in the month of October, versus expectations for an increase of 0.3%. When autos and gas are removed, the core reading was up 0.3%, versus expectations for a rise of 0.4%. Producer prices fell 0.4%, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%. When food and energy are removed, the core reading was down 0.3%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. Business inventories grew 0.3% in September while sales were flat compared to August. Consumer sentiment, as measured by the preliminary print from the University of Michigan survey, improved 3.1 points to 93.1 in November, which was better than the 91.5 reading that was expected. In Europe, data showed that eurozone's economy grew by just 0.3% in the third quarter, which was a slowdown from the 0.4% GDP growth recorded three months earlier and weaker than the 0.4% consensus growth forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of retailers broadly declined following the weaker than expected retail sales data reported by the government as well as third quarter earnings reports from Nordstrom and J.C. Penney (JCP), which fell 15% and 15.5% respectively. Virtually every mass-market, brick-and-mortar retailer was down today, from giants like Wal-Mart (WMT) and Costco (COST), to smaller retailers like Ross Stores (ROST) and Urban Outfitters (URBN)... Shares of Mylan (MYL) jumped 12.9% to $48.78 after the company's offer to acquire Perrigo (PRGO) failed, ending a seven-month fight between the two drug makers. Perrigo Chief Executive Officer Joseph Papa said he was "delighted" that his company's shareholders rejected the offer and the company added that it will immediately commence its previously announced $2B share buyback program, but its shares slid 6.16% to $146.90 in the wake of the shareholder vote... Cisco (CSCO) fell 5.8% after its first quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations but its guidance for the new quarter disappointed. A number of analysts that had been bullish on the name trimmed their price targets in response but also recommended the post-earnings weakness as a buying opportunity. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Springleaf Holdings (LEAF), which surged $5.07, or 11.5%, to $49.27 after reaching a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice that will allow the company to proceed with closing its previously announced acquisition of OneMain Financial from Citi (C). On the closing of the acquisition, the company will be renamed OneMain Holdings and has applied to the New York Stock Exchange to change its ticker symbol to "OMF," Springleaf noted. Also higher was Illumina (ILMN), which gained $10.26, or 6.6%, to $165.65 after being selected to replace Sigma-Aldrich (SIAL) in the S&P 500. Among the noteworthy losers was Fossil (FOSL), which plunged $18.62, or 36.5%, to $32.39 after the watchmaker gave lower than expected profit guidance for the upcoming quarter and said it continues to expect this fiscal year's results to be "significantly" negatively impacted by foreign currency changes. Also lower were shares of Vipshop (VIPS), which fell $5.03, or 27%, to $13.60 after issuing weaker than expected preliminary third quarter revenue guidance, which it said was partially driven by the warmer-than-expected fall weather in China. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 202.83, or 1.16%, to 17,245.24, the Nasdaq lost 77.20, or 1.54%, to 4,927.88, and the S&P 500 declined 22.93, or 1.12%, to 2,023.04.
