Foot Locker Inc. shares soared 15% in Wednesday premarket trading after the sneaker retailer reported earnings that exceeded expectations, but Cowen analysts fear the company may be too reliant on basketball shoes. "The overwhelming reliance on premium Nike sneakers, especially premium basketball, concerns us as our channel checks and observations point to a slowdown in basketball footwear sales," Cowen wrote in a note. Cowen rates Foot Locker shares market perform with a $56 price target. Susquehanna Financial Group analysts, on the other hand, are bullish about basketball. "The basketball category is beginning, slowly, to turn around and was down mid-single digits in the quarter, after posting more negative same-store sales for the past six quarters," said a Susquehanna note. "Headwinds from Nike's strategic pullback in the Jordan business are beginning to fade and should dissipate in 4Q18." Susquehanna rates Foot Locker share positive with a $64 price target. Foot Locker shares slipped 12% over the past three months while the S&P 500 index fell 7.7% for the period.

Most stocks have been thoroughly shaken and stirred since early October, and a long-overdue corrective move finally took shape. Not even the bluest of the blue chips have been immune. The Dow Jones Industrial Average still is off its record high from a couple months ago, and several Dow stocks still are vulnerable to more selling. The initial shellshock has started to fade, however, the smoke is clearing and some stocks are recovering. Smart investors are now weighing the impact and searching for opportunities. Some Dow Jones stocks may have more downside to dish out, but a handful of these iconic names are looking oversold, undervalued and ripe for a rebound sooner than later. Remember: Corporate earnings have never been better, and consumer confidence is as high as it's been in years. Clearly something is going right. Here's a look at five Dow stocks that may have more ground to give up before they hit bottom, and two industrial-average components that may already be buys at current prices. But a note: Most of these "stocks to sell" are merely in short-term trouble. A sizable pullback from any of them could ultimately turn into a buying opportunity.

Nike (NYSE:NKE) has long had a reputation for acting like a technology company, although its growth rate is more akin to that of Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) than Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN).
