Dick's Sporting: 'Experienced continued significant declines in Under Armour'

"As we continue to focus on driving profitable sales, we are very pleased with our strong gross margin improvement. An improved product cycle, fewer promotions, and a favorable product mix contributed to the overall strength in our merchandise margin," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Stack continued, "We delivered double digit growth in eCommerce, private brands, and athletic apparel excluding Under Armour, however, as expected, sales were impacted by the strategic decisions we made regarding the slow growth, low margin hunt and electronics businesses, which accounted for nearly half of our comp decline. In addition, we experienced continued significant declines in Under Armour sales as a result of their decision to expand distribution. We are very confident our sales trajectory will improve next year as these headwinds are expected to subside." "We have made great progress in executing our strategic framework, particularly in delivering productivity improvements, which are leading to real savings that are being reinvested in long-term growth initiatives such as eCommerce and Team Sports HQ," said Lauren R. Hobart, President of DICK'S Sporting Goods. "Additionally, we continue to develop a leading omni-channel experience for athletes through improvements in our in-store and online experiences."

Nervousness not necessary ahead of footwear retailers' results, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser noted investors are very nervous regarding earnings of footwear retailers, but he sees little to no reason for such nervousness. The analyst believes Dick's Sporting (DKS), Foot Locker (FL), and Hibbett Sports (HIBB) are well positioned heading into earnings. The analyst said product assortment is improving, inventory levels are as clean as they have been in years, and based on forward weeks of supply, all three are at historic lows. Poser believes the combination of better product and clean inventory will provide a revenue and margin tailwind in Q2 and beyond. Poser has a Positive rating on Dick's Sporting, Foot Locker, and Hibbett Sports shares.

Under Armour price target raised to $20 from $17 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Pamela Quintiliano raised her price target on Under Armour to $20 and kept her Hold rating after its "solid" Q2 results but "highly disappointing" Q3 guidance. The analyst notes that there is evidence of improvement and execution of strategic goals, but the outlook of reduced promotional activity in a "highly competitive" market may be "lofty".

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. ARGUS SAYS BUY LULULEMON: Argus analyst John Staszak upgraded Lululemon (LULU) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $150, citing the company's Q1 earnings beat and expectations of improved comps in Q2, along with its "substantial" growth opportunities to expand its brand overseas and particularly in China. Staszak contends that Lululemon's growth prospects are "among the best in the apparel sector," with a transition to higher margin e-commerce sales seen expanding its operating margins in the coming several years. The analyst further notes that his implied price target valuation multiple of 44-times forward earnings is within the multiple range of companies like Nike (NKE), Under Armour (UA), and VF Corp. (VFC) and justified by its rapid e-commerce adoption and strong overall growth. KIMBERLY-CLARK RAISED AFTER PRICE HIKES: JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira upgraded shares of Kimberly-Clark (KMB) to Neutral from Underweight and raised her price target to $114 from $90 following yesterday's announcement that the company will increase prices or reduce package counts on key products in North America. The analyst notes that while it remains to be seen if the price increases will "actually hold" given the intensely competitive U.S. market, she believes investors will give Kimberly-Clark shares the benefit of the doubt. Additionally, she tells investors that Procter & Gamble's (PG) commentary that it plans to raise prices on some of its premium paper products and diapers is "supportive" of Kimberly-Clark's ability to pass on higher prices. COTY CUT TWO NOTCHES AT MERRILL: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Olivia Tong double downgraded Coty to Underperform from Buy and cut its price target to $10 from $16. Tong said Coty is now more exposed to the mass beauty market following its merger with 41 brands from PG Beauty and is seeing disruption from smaller, niche brands and newer distribution channels. ACTIVISION PULLBACK SEEN AS OPPORTUNITY: Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea said he views China having frozen mobile game approvals as a temporary problem and "mostly a non-issue" as only the monetization approval process has been frozen, not the content approval process, and he notes administrators are already implementing a fast-track approval process to alleviate the problem. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) has a pipeline of new mobile games coming that he would still expect to launch in China over time and O'Shea sees the 15% pullback in the game maker's shares in the last month as a buying opportunity, he tells investors. He maintains a Buy rating and $90 price target on Activision shares.
