    • Investors have been slowly piling into Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS +1.1%) ahead of the company's FQ4 earnings report due out next week.
    • Analysts expect the company to report revenue of $2.28B and EPS of $1.16.
    • The Sports Authority bankruptcy is also in the background. Earlier today, Under Armour backed 2016 guidance in what could be a solid indication that Dick's won't feel a huge impact on the accounts receivable front. Most analysts expect Dick's to see a benefit as Sports Authority stores in close proximity to a Dick's store are closed.
