10:01 EDTFINLUnder 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.

11:35 EDTMDillard's sinks to 52-week low after joining chorus of 'disappointed' retailers
Shares of Dillard's (DDS), a retailer of fashion apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing, are falling to their worst level in a year after the company became the latest in its industry to report lower than expected third quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Dillard's reported Q3 earnings per share of $1.19 and revenue of $1.435B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.20 and $1.49B, respectively. Same-store sales for the quarter fell 4%. Total merchandise sales decreased 3% for the 13-week period ended October 31. Weaker performing categories were men's apparel and accessories and ladies' accessories and lingerie with notable weakness in home and furniture the company explained. Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William T. Dillard, II, stated, "We are disappointed with our third quarter sales performance and in the resulting decline in profit. Share buyback remained a high priority, and we repurchased $175 million of stock under our share repurchase program." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Gross margin from retail operations improved 11 basis points of sales for the 13 weeks ended October 31 compared to the prior year third quarter. Consolidated gross margin for the 13 weeks ended October 31 declined 30 basis points of sales compared to the prior year third quarter. The disparity between retail and consolidated gross margin performance is attributable to increased revenue at CDI, which is a substantially lower margin business. Inventory increased 6% at October 31 compared to November 1, 2014. For FY15, the company expects capital expenditures of $150M. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dillard's fell $5.81, or 7.5%, to $71.79 on more than three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $68.05. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost about 36% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing retailers include Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS), JC Penny (JCP), Sears (SHLD) and Nordstrom (JWN).
