I just can't see it performing against Sports Authority and Dicks Sporting goods, the stores just don't seem as new and upbeat. It like strip mall survival for them. Less than 3% rev growth TTM and a -15% EPS growth has me lining them up for shorting.

Better than expected results means buy buy buy, right? Wrong. The worst is yet to come for the US consumer.

Honestly, this is a screen short. Small discretionary retail companies with no economic moat will get killed in this market.

Also, I'm short stocks with weak relative strength and 6 or more months of under performance.

Great "Wall-Mart like" business plan. They even use Wal-Mart like those fish that hang onto whales and eat the food they leave behind. Whatever that word is...

Too strong fundamentally to be getting hit so hard this year...a few earnings reports later, expect a nice boost.

Not even close to done growing. Sells a wide variety of items in a smaller store setting than Sports authority. This allows them to focus on specific products and brands that consistantly sell. Sports are getting more popular once again. The down to earth management team should grow this egg smartly and with results for shareholders with a long term outlook.
