Earnings Preview: Here’s what to look for when Nike reports Q4 2019 results

NIKE Inc. (NYSE: NKE) is scheduled to report fourth quarter 2019 earnings results on Thursday, June 27, after market close. Analysts expect earnings to drop over 4% year-over-year to $0.66 per share while revenue is expected to increase over 3% to $10.16 billion.

Nike is likely to see strength in the fourth quarter due to strong demand and sales across its categories and geographies. The ongoing momentum in the athleisure space along with the company’s efforts to constantly improve its business will benefit quarterly results.

Nike’s investments in its direct-to-consumer channel and digital capabilities are paying off. The higher costs from these investments, however, are likely to pressure earnings. The impact of the trade war on Nike’s business is a hot topic of discussion, and one that analysts are closely watching. Nike’s top line results might also see negative impacts from currency fluctuations.

The company also faces challenges in North America due to tough competition in the retail industry and the rapidly-changing preferences of consumers.

In the third quarter of 2019, Nike surpassed earnings estimates while revenues came in line with expectations. Revenue grew 7% to $9.6 billion while earnings totaled $0.68 per share. The company saw single-digit sales increases in its footwear and apparel categories. Revenue also increased across all its geographies with Greater China posting double-digit growth.
