Here we look at some of the biggest movers last week, while only considering the companies with a market cap of at least $5 billion

  • Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS:US) shares fell nearly 24% after the retailer reported weaker-than-expected second-quarter results. The EPS of $2.82 came in significantly lower than the expected $3.81. Net sales for the period amounted to $3.22 billion, slightly lower than the estimated figure of $3.24 billion.

    The company's gross margin for the second quarter was reported at 34.4%, which was below the expected gross margin of 36.3%. Dick's Sporting Goods achieved a 1.8% increase in comparable sales for the second quarter. However, this growth fell short of the projected 2.6 increase.

Notably, the company has adjusted its full-year 2023 earnings per diluted share outlook to reflect the second-quarter results and the gross margin expectations for the latter half of the year.

    Congressman Ro Khanna was trading DKS shares in June. The stock is down 7.4% year-to-date.

  • Affirm (AFRM:US) stock rose 22.7% on the week after the buy-now-pay-later company reported an increase in transaction activity on its platforms. The company's collaboration with new merchants played a crucial role in offsetting the challenges of high-interest rates. 

    For the first quarter, the company envisions revenue ranging from $430 million to $455 million, which is higher than the consensus estimate of $433.8 million. Concurrently, Affirm anticipates a gross merchandise volume between $5.3 billion to $5.5 billion for this quarter, somewhere in line with the estimated $5.37 billion.

Furthermore, the company's gross merchandise volume for the same period reached $5.52 billion, exceeding the estimated figure of $5.31 billion.

  • Dollar Tree (DLTR:US) shares dropped 13.7% following the company’s weaker-than-expected guidance for the third quarter. The company projects EPS ranging from $0.94 to $1.04.

    The company's EPS reached $1.73, reflecting growth from the $1.54 reported in the same period the previous year. However, this adjusted EPS figure fell short of the estimated $1.92.

    Ubiquiti also declared a cash dividend of $0.60 per share while saying that the growth in revenue during the fourth quarter was driven by increased revenue from the company's “Enterprise Technology” platform.
