Nike shares rise as earnings, sales top estimates, fueled by strong North American demand
Nike shares climbed around 3% in extended trading Monday after the sneaker maker reported fiscal second-quarter earnings and sales that topped analysts’ expectations, despite ongoing supply chain pressures.
Chief Executive Officer and President John Donahoe said the retailer is in a “much stronger competitive position” than it was pre-pandemic.
Here’s how Nike did in the three-month period ended Nov. 30 compared with what analysts were anticipating, using Refinitiv estimates:
Earnings per share: 83 cents vs. 63 cents expected
Revenue: $11.36 billion vs. $11.25 billion expected
Nike reported net income of $1.34 billion, or 83 cents a share, up from $1.25 billion, or 78 cents per share, a year earlier. That topped analysts’ expectations for earnings of 63 cents a share.
Revenue rose 1% to $11.36 billion from $11.24 billion. That was ahead of estimates for $11.25 billion.
Sales in North America, Nike’s biggest market, climbed 12%, representing the highest growth of all geographies.
