  • This marks the first insider buy at the company since May 2022. Insiders, including the company CEO and the CFO, have been regular sellers of shares, at prices both above and below the current price.

    Overall, company insiders own 3.4 percent of shares.

    Retail has been a challenging industry over the past year, amid a rise in retail thefts.

  • Dick’s has seen earnings drop nearly 25 percent. However, shares trade at just 9 times forward earnings, and overall revenues increased last year. That indicates the company is performing well as a business, even in today’s challenging environment.

    Action to take: Shares could outperform the market in the months ahead. Shares are inexpensive, and the end of the year is typically the strongest time for retail stocks. Today’s investors can also get a  3.6 percent dividend yield at today’s prices.

    For traders, shares recently dropped after their latest earnings report and now look oversold. The December $130 calls, last going for about $3.60, could see mid-to-high double-digit growth in the months ahead before expiration.
