Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Dick's Sporting Goods as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 13.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.1%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • DKS's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.09 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.16 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed compared to the Specialty Retail industry average, but is greater than that of the S&P 500. The net income has decreased by 10.2% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $63.35 million to $56.88 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$0.14 million or 100.38% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
