Dick’s Sporting Goods Ditching 20% of Its Vendors quoting : Patch

as informed in

Still, Dick’s shares plummeted 9% as investors were unnerved by the company’s disappointing first-quarter earnings forecast and fears market share gains would abate.
Dick’s Sporting Goods ( dks ) will dump about 20% of its vendors and stock more of its own brands as it looks to fortify itself against the market forces that killed its defunct rivals like The Sports Authority .
Dick’s has taken a $46 million write down for the inventory “that does not fit within its new merchandising strategy.”
In the current quarter, the company expects adjusted earnings of 50 cents to 55 cents a share, well below Wall Street analysts’ projections for 61 cents.
In all holiday season quarter, Dick’s had a profit of $90.2 million, or 81 cents a share, down 30% from $129 million, or $1.13, a year earlier.
