Guru Investment Theses on Dick's Sporting Goods Inc

Ron Baron Comments on Dick's Sporting Goods Inc - Jul 28, 2014

Shares of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. (DKS), a sporting goods retailer, declined in the second quarter. The company reported quarterly earnings that were modestly below Street expectations and reduced guidance for the rest of the year. The sales shortfall was concentrated in the hunting and golf categories, while other higher margin product segments had sales growth exceeding industry averages. We believe the hunting and golf issues are temporary and do not alter our long-term investment thesis. (Michael Baron)



Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc., the country’s largest sporting goods retailer, declined sharply after the company reported lower than anticipated earnings and reduced expectations for yearly profits. The 14.5% decline in the quarter provided an attractive price to increase our holdings. The sales shortfall was concentrated in the hunting and golf category, while other higher margin product segments have sales growth exceeding industry averages. Hunting sales were down after abnormally high revenue in 2012 related to fears of stricter regulations in the industry (that have so far appeared unwarranted). Golf sales were weak due to our belief that supplier product did not resonate with the customer. Both of these issues, in our opinion, appear temporary. The core business for Dick’s is strong with same store sales growth of 6.6%, excluding the hunting and golf categories. The company is investing to improve store level profitability and productivity while growing the number of locations at a manageable pace. We believe the stock is very inexpensive for a top quality retailer, and we believe the company has $4 of earnings potential in a few years, once it manages through the current issues. (Michael Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on Dick's Sporting Goods - May 21, 2014

Shares of Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (DKS), a leading sporting goods retailer, declined in the first quarter. Although the company reported a fourth quarter rise in same store sales of more than 7%, investors attributed a large portion of the strong sales growth to weather. A generally weak consumer outlook and increased competition from e-commerce are also feeding into investors' concerns about the strength of the traditional retail sector. We believe the company will continue to take market share from its retailer competitors, improve its private label business, increase its margins, open more very profitable stores, and grow its online presence. (Michael Baron)
