Zacks Equity Research
July 31, 2014

Big 5 Sporting Goods Corp. (BGFV) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell more than 14% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for BGFV, as the stock is now down 23% in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the company has seen 1 negative revision in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

BGFV currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.0%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the services sector include Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS), Five Below, Inc. (FIVE) and ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. (ULTA). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
