Shares of Dick’s Sporting Goods surged as much as 14% Tuesday after the company reported quarterly earnings that handily beat Wall Street expectations.

- Revenue: $US1.96 billion reported, versus $US1.91 billion (expected)

The company has a consensus target price of $US41.78 and six “buy” ratings, 17 “hold” ratings, and one “sell” rating according to Bloomberg data.
