  • Is It Finally Time to Buy Sports Retail?

    By Marshall Hargrave - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: CAB, DKS, HIBB

    Billionaire David Einhorn didn't explicitly say "yes, now is the time to buy sports retailers." Nonetheless, an industry leader got a big positive last week when Einhorn's Greenlight Capital hedge fund announced it was closing out its short position on this stock. 

    Dick's Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS) is the sports and fitness specialty retailer that offers a range of sporting-goods equipment, apparel and footwear. Dick's also more »

  • The Best Specialty Retailers for Your Money

    By Damon Churchwell - July 18, 2013 | Tickers: HIBB, SBH, SIG, VSI

    Using the The Motley Fool stock screener, I sought out four of the most appealing specialty retail stocks based on the following metrics: earnings per share growth over the past three years averaging at least 20%; a Price-to-Earnings multiple below 25 times trailing-12-month earnings; a strong current ratio (CA/CL) of more than 2.0; and no long-term debt.

    The companies also encompass some of the features displayed by many more »

  • Sporting Goods Is a Great Business to Be In

    By Mark Yagalla - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: BGFV, DKS, HIBB

    The sporting goods business is enjoying the benefits of a number of tailwinds. Among them are a rebounding economy, strengthening housing market, and an overall love for all things sports. Sales of sportswear, including footwear and apparel, have been particularly strong. This was evidenced by the strong earnings just reported by Nike. The following three companies have a strong retail presence and will continue to benefit as long as market more »

  • An Insider Is Bullish on This Retailer

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 20, 2013 | Tickers: CAB, DKS, HIBB, SWHC, RGR

    Reuben Mark, who is a member of the board of directors at $4.8 billion market cap sporting-goods retailer Cabela’s (NYSE: CAB), bought 5,000 shares of the company’s stock on May 30 at an average price of $67.65 per share. Studies show that stocks bought by insiders narrowly outperform the market (read our analysis of studies on insider trading), and we think that this is because more »

  • Sporting Goods Weak…Weather to Blame?

    By RJ Towner - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: DKS, HIBB

    After performing well since the Great Recession, sporting goods retailers posted weak same-store sales for the first quarter. Let’s take a look at the performance of Hibbett Sports (NASDAQ: HIBB) and Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS).

    Hibbett Sports

    Hibbett Sports has performed exceptionally well during the past five years, with shares up over 170% (shares are up less than 3% during the past year, however). Even though the more »

  • There’s Still Great Upside in This Retailer Following Earnings

    By Brian Nichols - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: BGFV, DKS, HIBB

    I first said buy Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation (NASDAQ: BGFV) on December 2 2012 and then once more back on March 1. Today, after the company once again busted through earnings expectations, I am once again saying “Buy Big 5”!

    Big 5 is once again trading higher by almost 9% after crushing earnings expectations as revenue beat the consensus and its EPS was far above and beyond any analyst more »

  • A Sporting Way to Make a Winning Investment

    By Ken McGaha - April 21, 2013 | Tickers: CAB, DKS, HIBB

    There is no doubt that Americans love sports and competition. Typically, we only think of professional athletes or team owners as being in a position to profit from that situation. However, there is a way that virtually anyone can make very solid profits over many years: by investing in the businesses that supply us with the equipment we use in pursuit of our love of sporting activities. The global sporting more »

  • Would Buffett Own These 3 Retailers?

    By Marc Gerstein - April 10, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, DLTR, HIBB

    I’m certainly not the first person to come up with a stock-selection approach that pays homage to Warren Buffett, but I may be distinct in that I openly acknowledge that I really have no clue what the Oracle of Omaha might actually buy. Yes, I regularly read his shareholder letters and have read books about Buffett, and even spoke to him quarterly in the late 1990s when I initiated more »

  • This Sporting Retailer Is for the Long Run

    By Anh HOANG - March 30, 2013 | Tickers: DKS, FL, HIBB

    Recently, Forbes released a list of 100 America’s Best Small Companies. In the industry of specialty stores in the list, I noticed one company, which has consistently delivered a double-digit return on invested capital for the past ten years. It is Hibbett Sports (NASDAQ: HIBB). Interestingly, Hibbett has appreciated only 3.15% in the past twelve months. Let’s take a closer look to determine whether or not Hibbett more »

    The increase in payroll taxes have no doubt decreased US citizens' take home pay, but I don’t see its impact in the apparel, footwear and accessories market. Almost all the companies in this industry are performing pretty well, which clearly shows that the slow economic recovery and the hike in payroll tax haven’t yet disrupted consumer spending trends. Recently, the sporting goods chain Hibbett Sports (NASDAQ: HIBB) lit more »

  • Finish Line Looks to Rebound With Full-Year Results

    By Julian Willis - March 19, 2013 | Tickers: FL, HIBB, NKE, FINL

    With The Finish Line's (NASDAQ: FINL) fourth quarter and full-year earnings release approaching on Mar. 28, shareholders will soon know if the mall-based specialty retailer will recover from a difficult third quarter. The company last reported earnings on Jan. 4 and missed guidance, admitting that a new e-commerce site, rolled out in November 2012, added to the company's autumn and early winter woes.  Of course, Wall Street punished more »

  • Should You Buy the Dip at Dick's?

    By Leo Sun - March 13, 2013 | Tickers: CAB, DKS, HIBB, WMT

    Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS), the American sports superstore that also operates Golf Galaxy, recently stunned investors with bleak fourth quarter earnings and a soft outlook for the coming year. As a result, shares plunged more than 10% after its fourth quarter earnings announcement on March 11.

    In my opinion, this panicked sell-off has created a possible investment opportunity for patient investors. In this article I’ll examine the more »

  • Sporting Goods Stores May Outperform

    By Damon Churchwell - February 21, 2013 | Tickers: BGFV, DKS, FL, HIBB

    We are approaching the earnings dates for several sporting goods retailers, companies that may well be poised to beat expectations. Despite retail stocks having lagged the broader market somewhat of late, this could be an opportunity to benefit from the upside potential of one or two players in this particular niche. The companies have positive earnings pictures and are well-positioned for further expansion of their store bases. Some are targeting more »

  • An Excellent Specialty Retailer for Your Portfolio

    By Palwasha Saaim - December 12, 2012 | Tickers: BGFV, CAB, DKS, FL, HIBB

    Winters tend to hinder productivity. And when holidays start feeling dull with all that laziness and idleness, winter sports are the best substitute for a healthy outdoor activity during the daytime. Likewise, indoor games (darts, table tennis, foosball) serve as quality family time during the cold winter evenings. One company that efficiently caters to the sporting market segment all year round is Dick's Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS), a speciality more »

  • Can Dick's Sporting Goods Keep Sprinting Ahead?

    By Frank Constantino - December 10, 2012 | Tickers: CAB, DKS, HIBB | Editor's Choice

    While investors are busy hanging on every word that comes out of Washington that even remotely rhymes with cliff, consumers have been busy filling shopping carts with gifts this holiday season.  A recent trip to my local Dick's Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS) revealed to me that most consumers aren't remotely thinking of the "fiscal cliff."  Consumer confidence numbers show the U.S. consumer is pretty happy where things more »

  • Go Big or Small in Sporting Goods?

    By Steve Van - December 3, 2012 | Tickers: BGFV, CAB, DKS, FL, HIBB

    Big is not necessarily better in the sporting goods retail business. Yes, size does bring with it economies of scale whereby the unit cost declines as volume increases and, yes, larger sporting goods retailers do have more power over their suppliers to reduce costs than do smaller retailers. But comparing the operating performance of mid-cap retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS) and Cabela’s (NYSE: CAB) against small more »
