Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE) is scheduled to release its most recent quarterly results in the coming week, but one analyst has already weighed in on the apparel giant. As we all know, Nike was the worst performing Dow Jones Industrial Average stock in 2016, but so far in 2017 it has been one of the better performing Dow stocks. According to the analyst’s report, the company stands to run even more from here and earnings could just be the beginning.
Although the company still faces strong competition from Under Armour and Adidas, it seems that there are more positive trends that can carry Nike forward. Credit Suisse noted this and issued an Outperform rating and raised its price target to $67 from $60, implying upside of 18% from Mondays closing price of $56.67.
Looking ahead to the third quarter, Credit Suisse expects global constant currency futures up 4% to 5% year over year. The firm estimates total North American futures to be up 1.4%, a rebound from the negative futures growth in the second quarter. China futures growth remains in double digits at up 11%, with Western Europe up 5%. Risks to futures numbers and estimates include changes in consumer spending preference for athletic apparel and elevated competitive headwinds.
