Kevin Curran

Shares of the athletic shoes and apparel retailer declined rapidly, marking its third worst drop in history by absolute dollar terms and fifth worst day in percentage loss terms. "FL's model trajectory is back on track with its long-term target model of positive mid-single-digits same store sales and double-digit EPS growth, but elevated digital investments are limiting margin improvement," J.P. Morgan analyst Matthew Boss said. The outlook that a long-term growth story is still years away caused Boss to slash his price target from $65 per share to $51 per share.
