    Dick's Sporting Goods to benefit from Eagles Super Bowl championship, new Little League bat regulations

    Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. will benefit from two near-term same-store sales drivers, according to the latest note from J.P Morgan: the Eagles Super Bowl win and the new USA Baseball USABat Standard that will impact Little League. "From a similarities perspective, both the Cubs and Eagles have rabid fans that have been starved for a championship for decades," analysts wrote. About 4% of Dick's stores are in Illinois, and about 5% are in the eastern part of Pennsylvania, Delaware and South Jersey. NFL jerseys are popular items and are more expensive than baseball t-shirts, analysts say. According to data provided by inMarket, a geo-location marketing firm, Dick's traffic in Philadelphia was up 22% on Monday, February 5 versus the average Monday. J.P. Morgan expects about 100 basis-point same-store sales uplift from the big game. New bat regulations that impact Little League could give the first quarter a 50-to-75 basis point lift as all participating teams replace their bats. The boost is similar to a previous regulation change that affected high school and college baseball in 2012. J.P. Morgan rates Dick's shares overweight with a $43 price target. Dick's shares are up nearly 26% for the last three months, but down 40.1% for the last 12 months. The S&P 500 index is up 17.5% for the past year.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

    Tesla stock falls on report of Gigafactory issues with Model 3 batteries

    Tesla Inc. shares declined in Thursday trading after a report said employees expected more issues with Model 3 production amid difficulties at the company's new battery factory. CNBC spoke with several employees and former workers who reported difficulties at the "Gigafactory," Tesla's Nevada battery factory that launched last year. Chief Executive Elon Musk in October admitted that difficulties with initial battery production at the Gigafactory had affected production of the new Model 3 electric car, but the company sounded more confident about overcoming production issues in its latest statement of quarterly deliveries. According to CNBC's story, however, employees at the Gigafactory were still putting batteries together by hand in December. Tesla seemed to concede some manual production, telling CNBC, "Until we reach full production, by definition some elements of the production process will be more manual." Two current engineers told reporter Lara Kolodny that the manual process could lead to danger, as batteries may not have required space between cells. Tesla strongly denied that accusation in a statement to CNBC, with a spokesperson saying, "The implication that Tesla would ever deliver a car with a hazardous battery is absolutely inaccurate, contrary to all evidence, and detached from reality." Tesla shares, which had been trading roughly flat on the day before the report was released, dropped to a 2% loss after the story hit just after 2:30 p.m. Eastern time Thursday.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    EA stock falls after BioWare unit reportedly delays 'Anthem'

    A unit of Electronic Arts Inc. has pushed the release of one of its key gaming titles into early 2019, several months behind its scheduled release this year, according to the gaming blog Kotaku. EA stock is down 2.8% to $114.44 in afternoon trading Wednesday. The stock was trading steadily until the report hit the web at 1:30 p.m eastern time. Kotaku, citing unnamed sources, reported that EA's BioWare unit has pushed back the release of "Anthem," which the company announced in 2017. "All else equal, this likely wouldn't have a massive impact to estimates; it raises further concerns about the production of the game if it gets pushed a second time," wrote KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren in a note to clients. "These concerns are likely to be amplified given the recent execution concerns. We currently model 9M units for the game." EA will not allow BioWare to delay the release beyond March 2019, when the company's fiscal year closes, the report said. EA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. EA stock is up 43% in the past year, as the S&P 500 index rose 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    U.S. stocks open slightly lower in first trading day of government shutdown

    U.S. stocks fell modestly at the open on Monday, as investors found few reasons to keep pushing shares higher following a push to repeated records, and as the government shutdown provided another element of uncertainty to markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 72 points, or 0.2%, to 26,011. The S&P 500 declined 1 point to 2,809, a drop of less than 0.1%. The Nasdaq Composite Index was unchanged at 7,336. Both the S&P and the Nasdaq are coming off closing records, while the Dow is close to its own peak. While government shutdowns have historically not been big selling catalysts, uncertainty over when the government would reopened appeared to dampen buying enthusiasm. The Senate was expected to hold a procedural vote at noon Eastern Time on a measure that would keep the government funded through Feb. 8, but it wasn't clear if it would have enough support to advance.
