    DKS Forward P/E = 19.......AAPL Forward P/E = 13.77

    Now you tell me if DKS is overvalued.

    Do you REALLY think that DKS can grow earnings 30% faster than AAPL?

    If so, then BUY ALL YOU CAN.

    If you're sensible, and you think that the valuation of DKS is ridiculous, then thank your lucky star, and lock in your recent profits.

    Don't let your GREED cloud your judgement.

    • buy aapl then. It doesn't mean that DKS is overvalued. Own them both.

    • Your argument is not well made. Comparing DKS to AAPL is a poor choice. I have nothing against short selling, but at least make a valid comparison, like another similar type retailer.

      DKS is a fine stock and IMO is a great investment for both short and long term. Why, you ask?

      Well, short term the next few months are a prime sports selling season. And long term this company has a great track record of growth. Everyone should hold a few shares for 4-5 years and enjoy the growth.

        One more thing.....regardless of P/E ratios and fundamental analysis.....

        ANY stock that has gapped UP and gone parabolic, is overbought and overvalued........and cannot sustain that level.

        It's as simple as that.

        Further, from a Technical analysis point, check out the GAP UP, and the the candle formations from the last 3 days......all 3 days have large wicks, and have formed inverted hammer formations.

        That's BEARISH.

        Sell, and be thankful for your gains, or give them all back. I couldn't care less.

        You are missing the whole point in my post.

        I'm not comparing "company to company". I am comparing P/E ratios.....which is a companies earnings growth expectations........so I am comparing the ability of one company to grow earnings vs another company's ability to grow earnings. You don't have to pick companies from the same sector to make that comparison.

        Again, I am picking a company's....ANY company......ability to grow earnings vs another company's SAME comparison......earnings growth.

        By the way....the historical P/E ratio for S&P 500 companies is 14 times.

        Which again, makes DKS way overvalued.

        At 14 times fiscal 2011 earnings estimates, that makes DKS worth $21.70..........which make is ridiculously overvalued.

    • Good points, but think that DKS still has some room to run here....but you are right, need to watch closely and get out (I think at $37 by end of January)
