12:53 EDTNKE, EBAY, SSNLFEarnings Preview: Analyst sees Nike reporting better than expected Q4 EPS
Nike (NKE) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday, June 26, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Nike sells athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories worldwide. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 75c on revenue of $7.34B. The consensus range is 70c-80 for EPS and $7.23B-$7.44B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: The company reported third quarter EPS from continuing operations of 76c, beating the consensus expectation of 72c. Nike's revenue of $7B also beat the $6.69B consensus projection. Nike reported a Q3 gross margin of 44.5%, which was up 30 basis points. The company also reported worldwide futures orders were up 12% to $10.9B. Nike forecast Q4 revenue growth at a high single-digit to low double-digit rate, below the futures growth rate largely due to the timing of shipments at the beginning and end of Q4, as well as lower levels of at once and closeout sales. Nike also forecast fiscal year 2014 revenue at the top end of a high-single digit target range. NEWS: The company forecast fiscal year 2015 EPS growth "somewhat below" the mid-teens target range and sees currency neutral revenue growth at or slightly above the high-single digit target range. The consensus forecast is $3.37 for EPS and $30.09B for revenue. On its Q3 earnings conference call, Nike predicted Q4 forex headwinds would be stronger than Q3. During the quarter, Reenie Benzinger was named Vice President of global apparel and eBay (EBAY) Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe was named to Nike's board. CNet said Nike was preparing to end production of wearable-hardware devices and laid off most of its workers responsible for developing its FuelBand fitness tracker. A spokesperson confirmed a "small number" of layoffs. The Wall Street Journal noted that older versions of Nike's FuelBand were up for sale at steep discounts. Bloomberg said Nike, which forecast revenue to hit $36B by the end of FY17, is looking to make its activity-tracking software the go-to app for products manufactured by other firms like Samsung (SSNLF). STREET RESEARCH: Sterne Agee believes that Nike's Nike and Jordan footwear sales in the U.S. have continued to be strong. The firm expects Nike will report higher than expected EPS for Q4. Canaccord does not see any upward revisions to guidance and expects growth to be somewhat below the mid-teens range. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Nike shares are up almost 4%. Year-to-date, shares are up down over 3%. Ahead of this afternoon's earnings, shares are trading down 38c, or 0.5%, to $76.09.
