UBS analyst, Michael Lasser, reiterated his Buy on Dick's Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS) noting that the Cabela’s (NYSE: CAB) & Bass Pro merger is another sign of consolidation which puts the stronger players in the category in an even better position.

Dicks Sporting Goods has 1% of its stores in a 15 min trade area (5% in a 20 min trade area) that also contains both a Bass & a Cabelas. It's possible that none of these overlapping stores are closed as a result of the merger. Though, we calc. DKS could pick up 15 bps of comp & $2.5 mm of EBIT for every store that is consolidated between the merging parties (assuming DKS captures 25% share & achieves a 20% contribution margin). This should keep DKS' share gains going well past the next few Qs.
