What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nike stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nike stock: 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We also expect NKE to reiterate its FY19 guidance. While a trade war, especially with NKE’s sales) poses some risk, we believe NKE is poised to continue taking market share around the globe in FY19. In short, we have a positive bias towards NKE, but we’re hesitant to be too constructive on the shares at a P/E of 27x; hence our HOLD rating." (6/26/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NIKE surpassed the industry year to date driven by strength in international business and the global NIKE Direct business which has been aiding its quarterly performance. Notably, the company delivered top- and bottom-line beat in third-quarter fiscal 2018 which also marked the 23rd straight earnings beat. Quarterly results reflected significant progress on the Consumer Direct Offense, positioning it for strong profitable growth in the future. Further, it closed the third quarter with expectations of a trend reversal in its North America business in the fourth quarter, backed by the introduction of new innovation platforms and differentiated customer experiences in the marketplace. Consequently, it provided robust guidance for fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 and initial view for fiscal 2019. However, its higher SG&A expenses are likely to continue hurting results in the fourth quarter. Estimates have been stable ahead of fourth quarter earnings." (6/21/2018) 3. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We raise our PT to $78 from $70 to reflect 1) our continued confidence on Nike’s innovation pipeline impact on revenue acceleration, 2) continued GM improvement, and 3) continued strength in International combined with an expected inflection in NA revenue. Total revenue beat our expectations in 3Q, driven by a 19% increase in reported Int’l revenue, an acceleration from 2Q (+14%). Total Nike, Inc. revenue grew 7% (+3% in cc) to $9.0bn, $173mn above our estimate. EMEA (+19% reported; +9% in CC), Greater China (+24% reported; +19% in CC), and APLA (+13% reported; +11% in CC) revenue all were better than expected as NKE continues to display strong Int’l growth, showcasing the power of NKE’s Consumer Direct Offense. In particular, we highlight the strength in China and note favorable macro trends including acceleration in consumer spending/sports participation. Nike Basketball was strong in 3Q growing +DD in Footwear/Apparel across geographies." (3/23/2018) Has Nike been receiving favorable news coverage?
