09:51 EDTNKENike advances following JPMorgan upgrade
Nike (NKE) is climbing after JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss upgraded the stock to Overweight from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. Nike's revenue is poised to rise as a result of strong upcoming products and an expansion of the footwear maker's e-commerce initiative over the next several years, Boss wrote. Meanwhile, margin increases should help the company increase its earnings per share to $4-$5 by fiscal 2016, representing an increase of about 50% over three years, the analyst predicted. Boss is more confident about Nike's outlook after meeting with its CFO recently and he raised his price target on the shares to $64 from $50. In early trading, Nike rose 34c, or 0.6%, to $54.92.

The recent granting of fast-track authority to President Obama significantly increases the likelihood of the free trade agreement passing, the analyst writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Nike.
