    Nike's stock jumps after rating, price target raised

    Shares of Nike Inc. rallied 1.1% in premarket trade Friday, after the athletic gear company was upgraded at Wedbush, which cited increasing confidence that an inflection in margin and a return to growth in North America will materialize in fiscal 2019, which begins in June of this year. Analyst Christopher Svezia raised his rating to outperform from neutral, and boosted his stock price target to $74 from $57. He said fiscal fourth-quarter 2018 results, which ends in May, should show overall gross margin expansion for the first time in 10 quarters, as pricing pressure on footwear subsides and direct-to-consumer sales increase. In addition, Svezia said there are more "tangible product drivers to the story around casual and lifestyle that should resonate and be more impactful to consumers." The stock has soared 21.7% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 12.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Under Armour's stock sinks after Susquehanna swings back to bearish rating

    Shares of Under Armour Inc. sank 3.7% in premarket trade Tuesday, after the athletic gear and apparel maker was downgraded at Susquehanna Financial, which cited "poor" brand management, worsened by a promotional environment. Analyst Sam Poser cut his rating back to negative, after raising it to neutral two months ago. He kept his stock price target at $11, which is 31% below Monday's closing price of $15.98. "Despite ongoing evolution within the ranks of [Under Armour's] senior management, we believe, based on proprietary checks and our industry experience, that Under Armour's brand position will continue to weaken before it is clear if it can be salvaged," Poser wrote in a note to clients. "We contend that, in order to reaffirm [Under Armour's] place as an aspirational sports brand, all Under Armour product must be pulled from Kohl's, DSW, and Famous Footwear." He said advertisements for Under Armour products from the "moderate" retailers are causing "better" retailers such as Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. and Hibbett Sports Inc. to "plan their Under Armour businesses down." The stock has lost 4.0% over the past three months, while rival Nike Inc. shares have soared 25.3% and the S&P 500 has gained 8.0%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Converse capsule collection will include weatherproof Chuck Taylor sneakers

    A 17-piece Converse capsule collection, Urban Utility, available on December 5 will include the Chuck '70 Hiker, a Chuck Taylor All Star shoe "reconstructed" with Gore-Tex. According to its website, Gore-Tex is waterproof, wind-proof and breathable. Converse is a Nike Inc. brand. The collection is the result of a collaboration between Slam Jam, an Italian streetwear company, and the artist Cali Thornhill Dewitt. "The capsule is inspired by a generation that rallies around community and freedom of expression, and for whom functionality means nothing if it's creatively limiting," said a Converse release. The collection will also include a jacket made out of Gore-Tex fabric, tees and hoodies.

    Nike downgraded on lack of clarity in the U.S. market

    Nike Inc. was downgraded to hold from buy at HBSC based on what analysts call a "blurred visibility" in the U.S. market. HSBC maintained it $62 price target. Nike shares fell 1.1% in Tuesday premarket trading. Analysts say 60% of Nike sales happen in "undifferentiated" wholesale channels, though that should decline to 20% in five years. Sales in "better Nike experiences" like its direct-to-consumer channels, will rise from 40% to 80%. "That is very good for brand equity and full-price sales, but there could be hiccups along the way," wrote analysts led by Erwan Rambourg. Still, analysts think Nike has the potential to produce high-single digit sales growth and mid-teens earnings in the medium term. Nike shares are up 17.3% for the year so far outpacing the S&P 500 index , which is up 16.2% for the period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
