Every so often a company does something that just makes so much sense, and the deal that Gap (NYSE: GPS) has signed with Kanye West is one of them. Whether you like him or not (or merely shrug and roll your eyes when you hear his name), West bringing his Yeezy line of clothes to Gap is a really smart move for the retailer. While Nike (NYSE: NKE) didn't really need the assist when his first line of Air Yeezy sneakers was introduced back in 2009, it was still a notable development because it was the footwear maker's first non-athlete-branded sneaker.

Nike (NYSE: NKE) posted robust growth in its digital business last quarter, but it wasn't enough to offset the losses at physical stores. Overall, total revenue dropped 38% year over year due to store closures. During the conference call, management laid out a long-term growth roadmap, outlining specific areas where Nike will be investing during this downturn.
When Nike (NYSE: NKE) reported a 38% revenue decline in the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter, I'm sure more than one investor cringed. In the fourth quarter, Nike's digital sales soared 75% and made up 30% of total revenue.

Economic growth might be weak, with a soft economy made worse by additional outbreaks of COVID-19. The recent earnings report by industry leader Nike (NYSE: NKE) helped illustrate just how strong lululemon athletica's (NASDAQ: LULU) business is today. The apparel specialist only endured a 17% sales decline through early May, while Nike's revenue dove by 38% in its comparable fiscal fourth quarter.
The coronavirus’ impact spares no one. Nike (NKE) surprised Wall Street on Friday, when the sportwear giant took a beating by COVID-19 in its F4Q20 earnings report. The market reacted as the market does and sent shares down by 7.5% in the session.In the quarter, the swish machine reported revenue of $6.31 billion, exhibiting a 38% year-over-year drop and missing the estimates by $950 million. GAAP EPS of -$0.51 missed by $0.54. The overall decline pressured gross profit margin, which came in at 37.3%, lower than the Street’s call for 43.4%.Broken down by region, sales in the U.S. dropped by 46%, and in Europe by 44%. Only China came in positive, clocking a slight 1% uptick, with sales improving during the quarter.It was impossible to avoid the coronavirus’ devastating effect across the globe. For eight weeks in F4Q, 90% of Nike stores were shut across North America, EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) and APLA (Asia Pacific & Latin America). While digital demand pushed ahead, showing 79% year-over-year growth, it could not make up for the overall slump in retail sales.90% of Nike stores have now reopened, and despite improving traffic, the numbers are still down year-over-year, prompting Nike to guide for lower F1H21 sales.However, the crushing quarterly statement hasn’t dimmed Needham analyst Rick Patel’s enthusiasm for Nike. The analyst expects the footwear and apparel giant to bounce back “faster, leaner and stronger.”Patel commented, “Covid-19 hurt Nike sales more than expected in F4Q20, and FY21 sales growth is planned to be muted. Despite headwinds that should continue through F1H21, we view NKE’s LT bull case remains intact: 1) Growth through direct channels is accelerating due to digital demand; 2) Greater China has already rebounded to positive growth and remains an attractive LT opportunity; 3) Innovative products and marketing are driving outperformance of women’s and kids, areas of strategic importance; and 4) data science is enabling better decision-making, benefiting sales and margins.”Accordingly, Patel reiterated a Buy on NKE along with a $113 price target. Upside from current levels is 15%. (To watch Patel’s track record, click here)Overall, sentiment remains extremely positive across the Street. 1 Sell and 4 Holds are up against 21 Buys, which coalesce to a Strong Buy consensus rating. There is 18% upside in the cards, should the average price target of $110.21 be met over the next 12 months.

It was a tough day for the bulls on Friday, with the stock market getting walloped right off the open. That said, let's look at a few top stock trades as we approach the end of June. Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 1: Facebook (FB) Click to EnlargeSource: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is taking it on the chin as a growing number of companies begin to boycott their advertisements on the company's platform. As if the hit to ad sales weren't enough during the novel coronavirus, this presents a new revenue risk.The prior high at $225 acted as a springboard for the stock, as Facebook gapped over this mark, then held it as support. At the same time, $240 was acting as resistance.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNow, though, $225 is giving way, as Facebook fills the May gap down toward $215. In the short-term, the stock faces a critical level. If it fails to hold the 50-day moving average near $217 and Friday's low, the $200 to $205 area could be on the table. * 10 Consumer Stocks to Buy to Ride the Post-Covid-19 Wave There it finds prior support, as well as the 200-day moving average. On the upside, bulls need to see Facebook above the 50-day moving average, then reclaim $225. If $225 acts as resistance, that is not a good sign in the short term. Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 2: Fastly (FSLY) Click to EnlargeSource: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com Man, how fun is this one? Fastly (NYSE:FSLY) just keeps on ripping higher. When shares broke out over $50, I was looking for a test of $60, which is the two-times range extension.Above $60 puts the $75 level in play, near the 261.8% extension. I didn't think FSLY would clear this mark so quickly, but if it did, we said to look for a test of the three-times range extension, near $84.50.Powering through that mark now, FSLY is a runaway train. Eventually this train will stop, however, and bulls who trimmed on the way up but kept some for the ride have to be smiling ear to ear.On the upside, maybe this can push up to the 361.8% extension at $99.63. A run to $100 would be something, I don't know what else to say at this point. On a larger dip, see how the stock does on a test of the 20-day moving average, followed by $50. Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 3: Nike (NKE) Click to EnlargeSource: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com Nike (NYSE:NKE) hit the Street with a top- and bottom-line miss, as well as a surprise loss for the quarter. As great of a company as Nike is, it didn't deserve to be trading within 3% of its all-time high with that result.Dipping now, aggressive bulls may have a buying opportunity. Between $90 and $94, NKE has its 50-day, 100-day and 200-day moving averages, as well as uptrend support (blue line).If these areas fail to buoy the name, you'll know for certain that bulls can't garner any momentum. Below that area puts a gap-fill in play near $87, followed by $84. If the selling accelerates aggressively, it's possible we get a gap fill down to $72.50, but let's go one level at a time considering shares are up near $94 at the moment. * The Top 4 Solar Stocks to Buy Now If the $90 to $94 area does hold as support, though, see that Nike stock eventually reclaims $100 -- putting $105 resistance in play. Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 4: Gap (GPS) Click to EnlargeSource: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com Gap (NYSE:GPS) ended the day up neaely 19%. However, it's so far far off its highs that it's concerning.The stock hit its highest level since February, but was ultimately rejected by the 200-day moving average and the prior June high near $13.75.Right in the middle of its range, I either need lower prices or a move higher. On a dip, see that shares stay over $10 and uptrend support (blue line). Below $10 and the stock loses all credibility, even with so much volume on the day. If it loses $10, $9 could be back in play.On the upside, however, let's see if Gap can clear $14. That would put it above the prior June highs, as well as the 200-day moving average. Above Friday's high at $14.45, and $15 is possible, which was a former significant support level.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
