August 1, 2014: Stocks making new 52-week lows today included the following four firms.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (NYSE: DKS) saw shares fall to a new 52-week low of $41.74 after laying off 400 golf instructors earlier this week as sales of golf gear shrinks. The stock’s 52-week  high is $58.87 and more than 2 million shares change hands on an average trading day. Gun sales are also dropping faster than the firm expected.

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. (NYSE: LL) posted a new 52-week low of $52.76 on Fridday. The 52-week high is $119.98 and shares slipped nearly 2% today. The retailer reported earnings on Wednesday and results were short of estimates, same-store sales were down sharply, and guidance had already been lowered early in July. There seems to be no end in sight for the home improvement retailer. Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WWWW) traded down nearly 25% today and the stock posted a new 52-week low of $19.37. The 52-week high is $37.72. A Deutsche Bank analyst maintained a Hold rating on the stock, but cut the price target from $30 to $21 after the company posted weak results last night. Another analyst cut the stock’s rating from Buy to Neutral and chopped the price target from $34 to $24.

Ceasars Entertainment Corp. (NASDAQ: CZR) dropped more than 4.5% today and posted a new 52-week low of $15.25. The 52-week high is $26.74. Fitch Ratings issued a note earlier in the week pointing out that the company is struggling to avoid defaulting on $12.9 billion in high-yield debt.
