Nike earnings due

Nike is set to announce its earnings this week. Analysts predict that the company will earn 74 cents for each share with a total revenue of $13billion. This is in comparison to the same period last year when earnings were 93 cents per share on total revenue of $12.69 billion.

However, it's not all bad news for Nike. When compared to other companies in the same industry, Nike's profit margins are still above average, and its valuation is below the long-term average.

There is also a slight recovery in China, which is Nike's second-largest market. With China relaxing some of its Covid restrictions to boost economic growth, Nike stands to benefit from the ongoing reopening. There might be some positive changes in Nike's fundamentals. But for the company's shares to increase significantly in the near term, Nike needs to find ways to boost revenue growth and increase profit margins.

Poor performance so far this year

Nike’s stock price hasn’t performed well this year, with a 23% drop to date. This is in stark contrast to the 13% increase in the S&P 500 index. Over the past one and three years, Nike's shares have dropped by 9% and 30% respectively, while the S&P 500 index has increased by 32% and 145% during the same periods.

Nike analyst ratings, price targets and sentiment

Refinitiv data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Nike. Analysts show 7 strong buy, 15 buy, 9 hold, 4 sell and 1 strong sell - with the median of estimates suggesting a long-term price target of $123.00 for the share, roughly 35% higher than the current price (as of 26 September 2023).

IG sentiment data shows that 92% of clients with open positions on the share (as of 26 September 2023) expect the price to rise over the near term, while 8% of clients expect the price to fall. Trading activity over this week shows 55% of buys and this month 52% of sells.

What does the technical picture look like?

Nike’s share price is currently in free fall and is fast approaching its October 2022 low at $82.22. The question is whether the share price can hold above that low after this week’s first quarter (Q1) results. If not, that is to say if a weekly chart close below the $82.22 low were to be seen, the June and August 2019 lows at $78.19 to $77.07 would be next in line.

For the bulls to be back in control in the medium-term the last weekly reaction high – a high on a weekly candlestick which is higher than that of the week preceding it and following it – at the $111.95 early August high would need to be exceeded.

On the daily chart the last reaction high was made at $98.15 in mid-September and below it solid resistance can be spotted between the August and 13 September lows at $95.66 to $96.55.

Below these levels the August-to-September downtrend line can be spotted at $95.00 and is likely to cap any short-term bullish reversal, were it to be reached at all.

    • Nice analysis, but none of these tokens retest their previous ATH or set a new one. $BGB has shown its potential by setting a new ATH and aiming to hit higher in the anticipated bull run. It is another token to include on your watchlist. 
    • Of course, here are a few exchanges with native tokens and their growth over the past 18 months: Binance BNB 239% Kinbase COIN 43% Kraken KRAKEN 194% FTH FTT 84% Uniswap EMU 167% It is important to note that these are only past performance figures and there is no guarantee that they will continue to hold up in the future. However, the growth of these exchanges suggests that their native tokens could be good investments in the next bull period. Here are some additional factors to consider when choosing an exchange token to invest in: Utility: Does the token have any utility beyond just being a store of value? For example, can it be used to pay commissions on an exchange or to receive discounts on services? Liquidity: How easy is it to buy and sell a token? Team: Does the exchange have a strong team with a proven track record? Community: Does the exchange have a large and active community? By considering these factors, you can make a more informed decision about which exchange token to invest in. I recently began to study crypto even more actively, created a new one wallet for business, with the help of which I will carry out calculations in my business. Crypto is the future, so study it and develop in this direction. Hope this helps!
