12:23 EDTNKESkechers announces 'favorable' ruling in Nike lawsuit
Skechers (SKX) announced that it has won a ruling over Nike's (NKE) wholly-owned subsidiary Converse relating to the Converse Chuck Taylor shoe. In a November 17 opinion, the Chief Administrative Law Judge of the ITC, the Honorable Charles Bullock, ruled that Skechers' Twinkle Toes and BOBS product lines do not infringe Converse's registered trademark for the Chuck Taylor midsole. In making his ruling, the Judge noted that both of the Skechers product lines feature prominent branding and that the Twinkle Toes line contains design features that "create enough differences that the shoes bearing them cannot be said to be similar to [the Chuck Taylor]." The Judge also stated that the survey evidence concluded that there was no likelihood that consumers would confuse the Skechers designs with those of Converse's Chuck Taylor designs. In addition, the Judge ruled that Converse has no common law trademark rights in the Chuck Taylor midsole because the design is not distinctive, not famous and has failed to acquire secondary meaning, Skechers said.

10:01 EDTNKE, FLUnder Armour, Nike slide after Dick's outlook misses expectations
Shares of Under Armour (UA) and Nike (NKE) slipped after Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) provided guidance for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2015 that both missed consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Dick's Sporting Goods reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 45c on revenue of $1.64B, mostly in-line with analyst estimates of 47c on revenues of $1.64B. The company guided for Q4 EPS of $1.10-$1.25, short of the consensus estimate of $1.43. Dick's also said it anticipates FY15 adjusted EPS of $2.85-$3.00, lower than current analyst expectations of $3.19. STREET RESEARCH: Following the report, Baird analyst Justin Kleber said that Dick's Sporting Goods is the "strongest player" in its segment, which should enable the company to grow its sector-leading 10% market share at the expense of smaller competitors. The analyst added that profitability for the company should improve as volumes increase and as the company leverages its store base to fulfill further orders. Kleber said that Dick's Sporting Goods' e-commerce business will be more profitable than its brick-and-mortar business by 2017. The analyst maintained a Neutral rating and $48 price target on Dick's Sporting Goods' stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Dick's Sporting Goods dropped 17.5% to $33.67, while supplier Under Armour fell 5.6% to $84.95 and Nike was down 2% to $121.08. Dick's peers fell as well, with Finish Line (FINL) dropping 1%, Foot Locker (FL) slid 1.3% and Cabela's (CAB) dipping marginally in morning trading.
