Nike set for Q4 earnings report today

Nike is set to report Q4 earnings today after the market close, and it is a "chance for the athletic giant to settle the score after its recent selloff." Nike has "long been a powerhouse, rising nearly 90% in the past half decade, ahead of the S&P’s 60% gain." There have been "plenty of years when it has easily outpaced its consumer discretionary peers as well, with the stock reaching all-time highs during the pandemic." Yet the stock, like so many others, has "been pummeled this year: Nike has lost almost a third of its value in 2022, compared with the broader market’s roughly 20% loss." Consensus calls for Nike to "earn 81 cents a share in its fiscal fourth quarter, due out after the close on Monday, on sales of $12.07 billion" (, 6/27).

Covid lockdowns in China "took a toll in the May-ended quarter," and Nike also "just announced a plan to fully exit Russia" (, 6/24).
