    It seems to me that with DKS, Big 5, and ASO all being sporting goods stores and all having a high percentage of shorts, that somebody has messed up big time. This looks more like a bet on macro conditions than shorting of a company with a specific problem. That great thing about sports is people are going to play the in both good times and bad times. And I don't see AMZN or Walmart as a huge threat here. The selection at general merchandize stores sucks in comparison. Going to invest a bit in BGFV and DKS.

    It's BGFV time. Buying the dips with the profits from DKS and VSTO. Wow what a volatility ride with VSTO. BGFV is next but the different is BGFV is 30% shorts. And we know shorts must cover margin calls. So they have a short hold because we know BGFV is a solid company. I still believe BGFV will get back to $40 plus and if enough margin pressure is place on the short positions then it could get to $60.

    Let try it....quit selling!!!! and playing game with BGFV. This will force the shorts to cover. You can't time the market. BGFV is on a chart upward pattern. Higher highs and higher lows.

    I hope management will do something beside a special dividend and buy back company stocks. This would be more beneficial to the shareholders.

    it's so obvious that this stock is suppressed. Reporting record sales and raising guidance and the stock with 30+% short interest is in the red on a P/E of 4.3. I'm buying more.

    A nice trap for the shorts has been set. Great initial results have been reported.

    Sales of 273.4 mil and earnings of 0.84-0.86 versus a previously expected 0.55 - 0.70. NIce!!!!

    They preanounced and offered guidance higher than previous estimates. 2021 eps estimates are for 4.50 to 4.52. We currently trade at a low 4.25 pe. Maybe we can get a more than reasonable 6 pe? We’d be looking at a $27 stock price. And issue amother special divy and we’d really get this thing moving up again. We’ll see!!

    Market beginning to digest the pre-announcement yesterday and realizing they have plenty of liquidity to pay a special dividend and expand a stock buy-back program, or raise existing dividend (don't recommend). Prefer aggressive stock buy-back over all 3. Furthermore, over last 6 quarters or so, this mgmt has a history of underpromising and overdelivering. All eyes will be on the future guidance.

    ok lets make sure we are clear on this the report was year end not 4th quarter results and a pre announcement what I got out of it they did repurchase stock and still had a lot of cash on hand and should blow away 4th quarter could this be the set up for the squeeze not pumping or dumping just holding for now glta

    How is this red?? The early pop to the $21's on the good news this morning was the correct reaction.

    Fool me once, shame on you.
    With a PE so good, snow everywhere and people camping in the streets this one is about to rocket 🚀 to 30 plus just in warm fuzzy feelings alone.

    The earnings estimates on the "Analysis" tab have been raised.

    The estimate for Q4 was raised 39% from $0.61 to $0.85. The estimate for 2022 is now up to $3.21.

    BGFV will have another good year.

    Ok, so how many people are betting that this stock will go down?

    I bought this week. I bought in after tax and Ira accounts.

    How many people do you think will figure out this weekend that BIG5 just started on of the best selling seasons for the last 3 years with the latest storms that just dumped tens of feet of snow in the western part of the country where big 5 is. Ski season is just getting started.

    That’s a lot of poles shoes bindings skis boards and gear. PE of 4 .. shorts, please keep selling. I need your money. The irs says I must report any money I steal and my broker will handle that for me.

    I’ve been wrong before. But I also own Jill and they are in the same pattern. Lots of fast very fast upside
    Potential .. Jill blows my mind. I bought more of them too. Clothing did well apparently.

    Happy new year you guys. Best of luck to you all.

    Ps there going to sell a lot of work out gear for people . Its time to loose that Covid 15 or 20 or more .. lot of fat out there that needs to be processed.

    Snapped up some shares this morning. Fundamentally, this looks like a good entry point. Anyone else on this board discuss the stock?

I can understand $gme $AMC got no earnings whats the excuse for BGFV ? ..I am going to just buy. another nice 1$ dividend can be expected this quarter. Just wait for shorts to run out of the money.

    Figure there could be a post omicron bounce in sales in early 2022. Nearly $100 million net cash. Not too shabby

    New to this stock and planning to buy some. What caused the big jump and then the decline? Thanks!

    Snow levels in CA at 160% of normal for this season. Mammoth alone is set for a spectacular ski season.
    Visited local Big 5 today, and it was the busiest I have ever seen them, yup, even after Christmas.
