Double miss .04 on earnings, $11 million on revenue.
This is not going to get us back to $20 any time soon. CC listeners, is there any encouragement from the e-platform? Guidance was poor for next quarter so I fear we're looking to Christmas for the next bump.
During CC, they kept mentioning this retail malaise, which they claimed also hit quite a few retailers. I don't know which retailers they were referring to. If we put aside the 2013 spike and compare 2014 to 2012 instead, it's very likely BGFV will see flat to lower same-store and EPS this year. I don't see this issue hitting DKS, I am not sure if this can be explained away by the awful weather in the west.
If the weather cooperates, we may see a good Q4. But before that, I will use the price in 2012 as a reference and that means we may dip under $7.
