DICK'S Sporting Goods Inc. (NYSE: DKS) has seen its shares slide a significant 11.5% in the past week, pushing it behind its industry peers and the broader S&P 500 index. The downside came after NIKE's commentary, on its Jun 26 earnings call, about the soft global demand for its lifestyle products and a challenging path ahead.

The stock of the prominent sporting goods retailer rose about 1% yesterday to $200.13 after dropping as much as $197.13 on Jul 2. At the current price, the stock trades at a 17% discount to its 52-week high of $234.47 reached on Jun 20, 2024. This indicates that the stock has further upside potential from here.

The company also outperformed the broader Zacks Retail-Wholesale sector and the S&P 500's growth of 12.6% and 16.2%, respectively, in the same period.
