Swing Trading Opportunity: DICK’S Sporting Goods (Mar 2023)


Manchester United was comprehensively beaten by its bitter rivals and defending champions, Liverpool, last week. 

Fans of Manchester United were left in shock as the performance of their team leading up to this big match had been nothing short of marvelous.

Liverpool fans all over the world took this opportunity to celebrate. They had hoped for a turn in fortune as their team hadn’t been performing all season. 

However, Liverpool’s massive win over Manchester United wasn’t pivotal. 

Liverpool got beaten 1-0 by a lower team, exposing their inconsistency. 

With each passing week, Liverpool’s hope of finishing the season at 4th place slips further and further away.

Ok, enough about soccer. 

Let’s talk about the US stock market and the swing trading opportunity that I see: DICK’S Sporting Goods.

And if you’re wondering if there was a swing trading entry on Pentair, there was no entry based on The Art of Explosive Profits.

Performance Of US Stock Market vs DICK’S Sporting Goods (DKS)

Comparison between the S&P 500 futures and DICK's Sporting Goods

Looking at the chart of the S&P 500 futures, what observations can you make?

The S&P 500 futures is in a highly volatile uptrend overall. 

This volatility is likely to stay after Fed Chair, Jerome Powell, had signaled that the terminal interest rate could rise. Fear of a contagion effect stemming from the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank is another reason that’s adding more volatility to the market. 

Last week, the S&P 500 futures tanked 3.7% after a good start. 

How did the share price of DICK’S Sporting Goods perform in the past few months? 

After a 3 month sideways movement, its share price began climbing. 

Its price ascent is much predictable and less volatile. 

Last week, the share price of DICK’S Sporting Goods shot up by 10.2%!

This is the complete opposite of the S&P 500 futures. 

If I may, the S&P 500 futures is pretty unpredictable like Liverpool while shares DICK’S Sporting Goods have been more consistent like Manchester United. 

You can conclude that DICK’S Sporting Goods’ shares have outperformed the S&P 500 futures, an important conclusion for buying any stock for a swing trade.
