Dick's is set to report second quarter results in mid- to later Aug. Recent data clearly suggest strengthening trends in demand for sporting goods, which our analysts believe could portend meaningful upside in second quarter trends at Dick's.

Shares of Dick's have bounced from recent lows, but continue to lag peer equities and broader indices. Our team's $52 price target implies upside of about 20% from current levels.
