Big 5 Out Paces Competition

Competitive Factors:

As listed above the market has given the stock a thumbs up while it has seemed to pass on the rest of the sporting goods stocks. Some of it's competitors are listed below:
  • Cabela has a financial strength of B++ and is rated B by TheStreet Ratings. Revenue is projected to be up 10.30% next year and earnings looking to increase by 16.75% annually for the next five years.
  • Dick's Sporting Goods has a financial strength of B+ and TheStreet Ratings gives the stock an A-. Revenue is predicted to be up 8.1% next year and earnings might be up 14.79% annually for the next five years.
  • Hibbett Sports has a B++ financial strength and is rated B. Revenue is estimated to be up 6.6% next year and earnings to increase annually by 15.67% for the next five years out.

    Conclusion: Before the recent upbeat earnings report, Big 5 Sporting Goods was not a nationally recognized brand. Even with the recent price jump I think long-term investors still have an opportunity to buy at a reasonable P/E of 22.

    At the present time they are located in only 25% of the states so they have room to grow the brand across the country and eventually become a national brand. As always watch the moving averages and turtle channels for signs of weakness:
