“We add DKS to the CL, returning it to the list after having removed it on December 10. Risks associated with a choppy 4Q and a tough 1Q guide have played out, if anything worse than we expected, but a lower multiple (recent trough), a higher core DKS store target (aided by an effective smaller format), and a visible capital allocation strategy more than offset negatives, including modest incremental investment and the distraction and cost associated with two new concepts.,” Goldman Sachs’ analyst commented.
