Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS) reported stronger-than-expected earnings and sales for the third quarter of 2019 and revised up its full-year earnings guidance. The stock moved up about 10% early Tuesday, soon after the announcement.
Consolidated same-store sales increased 6% during the three-month period, aided by strong growth in average ticket and transactions. Net sales advanced 5.6% annually to $1.96 billion and came in above the consensus estimate.
Third-quarter net income was $57.6 million or $0.66 per share, compared to $37.8 million or $0.39 per share in the corresponding period of last year. Adjusted earnings were $0.52 per share. The bottom-line surpassed analysts’ forecast.
“We saw increases in both average ticket and transactions, as well as growth across each of our three primary categories of hardlines, apparel and footwear. As we head into the holiday season, we remain very enthusiastic about our business, and we are pleased to increase our full-year sales and earnings outlook for the third time this year,” said CEO Edward Stack.
The management raised its full-year 2019 earnings per share guidance to $3.63-3.73 and lifted adjusted earnings per share outlook to $3.50-3.60, both up from the previous range of $3.30-3.45. Capital expenditures are expected to be around $230 million in the whole of 2019 on a gross basis and around $200 million on a net basis, which represents an increase from the 2018 levels.
During the quarter, Dick’s repurchased around 2.8 million shares for $99.5 million. Earlier this month, it declared a quarterly dividend of $0.275 per share, which is payable in cash on December 31, 2019, to stockholders of record on December 13, 2019.
