NIKE Inc. (NYSE: NKE) is scheduled to report second quarter 2020 earnings results on Thursday, December 19, after the market closes. Analysts have predicted earnings of $0.58 per share on revenue of $10.08 billion.
Nike started fiscal year 2020 on a strong note with growth in revenue and profits. The company has been investing significantly in its direct-to-consumer (DTC) business which is seeing good growth. The momentum in the DTC business will be a key point to focus on when looking at the second quarter performance. As part of its efforts to improve direct sales to customers, Nike ended its partnership with Amazon (NYSE: AMZN) last month.
Nike’s strategy that focuses on product innovation and building digital capabilities appears to be paying off. Last quarter, the company saw revenue growth across all its segments, with the exception of Global Brand Divisions, which saw a double-digit decline. Revenues increased across all geographies with the highest growth of 22% in Greater China. Despite the momentum, higher expenses might put pressure on margins in the second quarter.
