Skechers' (SKX) international and direct-to-consumer businesses are performing well. These are likely to continue driving the company's top line.

Nike Inc's quarterly revenue and profit blew past Wall Street expectations on Thursday on strong sales in China, but lower-than-expected growth in North America, its biggest market, overshadowed the beat. The world's largest footwear maker faces intense competition from brands like Adidas, Skechers and VF Corp's Vans in North America, even as it pushes to sell exclusive merchandise through its tap-and-buy SNKRS app and retail stores. In its attempt to gain market share over rivals, Nike has collaborated with celebrities, ramped up sneaker launches and increased marketing around major sporting events.
One company breathing a sigh of relief that tariffs scheduled to begin on Dec. 15 have been postponed indefinitely is Skechers USA Inc. , say UBS analysts. "Footwear companies which sell a high percentage of goods in the U.S. sourced from China probably benefit the most," UBS said. "Skechers is the best example of this." UBS rates Skechers stock buy with a $49 price target, up $1. Analysts also think baby and children's wear maker Carter's Inc. will save $15 million, and Under Armour Inc. will save $6 million from the deal. Carter's and Under Armour are both rated neutral. Analysts lifted Carter's price target to $105 from $100, and Under Armour has a $21 price target. Skechers stock is up 3.6% in Wednesday trading, and has rallied more than 87% for the year to date. The S&P 500 index is up 27% for 2019 to date.
The major stock indexes turned mixed in morning trade Wednesday. But shipping giant FedEx dove 9% on weak earnings results.
Skechers (SKX) is benefiting from its sturdy international business. Also, the company's emphasis on its new line of products, cost-containment efforts and global distribution platform bode well.
Shoemaker Skechers USA Inc is expected to post earnings growth on pace with Nike Inc over the next three years, giving its relatively low valuation a chance of catching up, financial newspaper Barron's reported in its Dec. 7 edition. Analysts estimate Skechers' earnings-per-share will rise 15% this year and in 2020, and 12% in 2021. Skechers sells trainers, dress shoes, sandals and boots - a broader range than Nike - and has grown over the past 20 years to become the third-largest global footwear brand by revenue, after Nike and Adidas AG, the paper said.

Sporting goods retailer Dick's Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) is set to report third-quarter 2019 numbers before the bell on Tuesday, Nov. 26. I'm cautiously optimistic on DKS stock heading into that print for two big reasons.Source: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com First, my research suggests that those numbers should be pretty good. Specifically, foot traffic, web traffic and search interest data for Dick's Sporting Goods all point to strong sales growth in the quarter, as do macroeconomic retail sales data and peer company earnings reports. At the same time, certain market developments imply that margin performance was strong in the quarter, too. Strong sales and margin performance should inspire confidence in DKS investors.Second, given the underlying valuation, pretty good numbers should be enough to provide a nice post-earnings lift to DKS stock. That is, DKS stock is cheap and fundamentally undervalued, given concerns regarding the staying power of the business. Strong third-quarter numbers heading into the holiday season will significantly ease those concerns. As those concerns fade, so will the undervaluation in DKS stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBig picture: DKS stock looks good heading into the third-quarter earnings report. Dick's Could Report Good NumbersMy research suggests that Dick's Sporting Goods had a pretty good third quarter.It is important to note that Dick's Sporting Goods has been on a roll this year. Although the past several years have been defined by choppy comparable-store sales growth, erratic margins and declining profits, this year has been much different. In 2019, comparable sales growth has been largely positive, including a multi-year high 3.2% rise in comparable sales last quarter. Margins have been stabilizing. So have profits. * 7 Top Stocks to Buy for 2020 In other words, Dick's Sporting Goods had solid momentum heading into the third quarter.Multiple data points suggest this momentum persisted in Q3. First, foot traffic data shows that Dick's foot traffic has increased 4.5% year-over-year through the first 10 months of 2019, including healthy growth over the past few months. Second, web traffic data from SimilarWeb shows that Dick's website has gained traffic share against other sporting goods websites over the past few months. Third, search interest data from Google Trends shows that search interest related to Dick's Sporting Goods has consistently increased year-over-year in 2019.These data points are corroborated by a healthy consumer backdrop (unemployment rates remain near historic lows, wages are still rising, inflation remains checked and retail sales ex-food sales rose 3.7% year-over-year during the past three months) and strong peer company earnings reports. Nike (NYSE:NKE), Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU), Skechers (NYSE:SKX) and Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) all reported strong revenue numbers in September, October and November.The data strongly implies that Dick's is due to report strong third-quarter numbers before the bell on Tuesday. Dick's Stock Could RallyImportantly, strong third-quarter numbers should propel a nice rally in DKS stock.DKS stock presently trades at just 11.1-times forward earnings. That's dirt cheap. The market trades at over 16-times forward earnings. Retail and consumer discretionary stocks trade at over 20-times forward earnings. Footwear stocks -- and Dick's generates a lot of money from footwear -- trade at nearly 30-times forward earnings.Across the board, DKS stock is undervalued relative to peers. This undervaluation is a byproduct of investor concerns regarding the staying power of Dick's in the dynamic athletic apparel retail landscape. Specifically, athletic apparel brands like Nike have been making a huge direct retail push, and in so doing, have lessened their reliance on wholesale distribution partners like Dick's Sporting Goods. Some investors are concerned that this eventually results in Dick's becoming irrelevant in the athletic apparel distribution model.But, strong numbers in 2019 have helped alleviate those concerns, as Dick's sales and margin trends appear to be stabilizing amid this dramatic shift. Stabilization has inspired investor confidence. Year-to-date, DKS stock is up nearly 30%.Strong third-quarter numbers will continue this alleviation. Considering DKS stock is still dirt cheap, continued alleviation should keep the 2019 rally in DKS stock alive. Bottom Line on DKS StockMultiple data points suggest that Dick's Sporting Goods is due to report strong third-quarter numbers before the bell on Tuesday. At the same time, DKS stock is trading at a dirt cheap valuation heading into that print.That's a favorable combination which ultimately implies that DKS stock could be due for a nice post-earnings bump.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long NKE, LULU, SKX and FL.

In the investment world, there's a lot of debate surrounding technical analysis. Some fundamentalists call technical analysis "hocus pocus" and think there's nothing to it. Other traders, however, attest to the "price is truth" mantra, and believe that technicals give you the most insight about how and when to buy a stock.I'm not here to settle this decades-old debate.Rather, I'm here to do two things. First, I'll give my personal two cents on the matter. Technicals don't drive stocks. Fundamentals do. But, there's enough information embedded into price action -- and enough money out there paying close attention to technicals -- that technical indicators can give investors very strong and accurate buy/sell signals.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSecond, I'd like to highlight recent academic research from Professor Shu Feng of Boston University and Professor Na Wang and Professor Edward Zychowicz of Hofstra University. Analyzing data from 1993 to 2010, they found that technical indicators tend to perform better when sentiment is high, versus when sentiment is low.Right now, market sentiment is high. The S&P 500 has rallied an impressive 4% over the past month alone to all time highs, and every investor sentiment reading has moved higher over the past few weeks. * 7 Silver and Gold Stocks to Buy That Offer Contrarian Upside Considering that technicals do matter, that technical analysis works better during periods of high investor sentiment and that investor sentiment is presently high, the implication is clear. It's time to start buying stocks with strong charts and favorable technical indicators. Stocks to Buy with Great Charts: Skechers (SKX)First up, we have athletic apparel maker Skechers (NYSE:SKX).The 2019 chart for SKX stock is pretty clean and impressive. All year long, the stock has been on a steady uptrend, with well-defined support and resistance lines. Both of those lines have held multiple times, so barring some drastic change, they should keep holding for the foreseeable future. Assuming they do, the most likely path forward for SKX stock is to keep rallying until it hits its resistance line at around $45.The fundamentals support further upside in SKX stock, too. Consumer attitudes are improving, and consumer spend this holiday season will likely be very strong amid easing trade tensions, re-accelerating economic activity, and still healthy labor market conditions. At the same time, athletic apparel tailwinds remain alive and well, and the Skechers growth narrative (over 15% revenue growth last quarter) remains equally vigorous.Still, SKX stock trades at a huge discount to its sector and peers, and therefore, has plenty of room to keep moving higher, propelled by a healthy combination of profit growth and multiple expansion. Trade Desk (TTD)Second, we have programmatic advertising leader Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD).The chart on Trade Desk implies that this stock is in the early stages of a big rebound. Specifically, TTD stock plunged into technically oversold territory (Relative Strength Index below 30) in late September. It has only done this twice before over the past year. Both times, the stock proceeded to bottom, reverse course and head substantially higher over the subsequent few months. It looks like the same thing is happening this time around, as TTD has bottomed and reversed course in October/November. If history holds up, shares should continue to trend higher.The fundamentals underlying TTD stock are equally bullish. This company is pioneering the future of advertising, which is the usage of data, algorithms and machines to automate and optimize the ad transaction processes. This market, dubbed the programmatic advertising market, projects to grow by leaps and bounds as automation becomes more and more globally prevalent. Trade Desk will similarly grow by leaps and bounds in the long run. Near-term weakness is nothing more than noise for this long-term winner. * 10 Cheap Stocks to Buy Under $10 Plus, it looks like that near-term weakness is now fading out, which could mean that the coast is clear to buy the dip in TTD stock. AT&T (T)Third, we have telecom giant AT&T (NYSE:T).The chart on T stock implies that shares are in the midst of a breakout which will persist until about $45. Specifically, T stock broke a multiyear downtrend in early 2019. Ever since, the 20-day moving average has surged above the 50-day moving average, and both have surged above the 200-day moving average -- a favorable dynamic which implies building momentum in the stock. At the same time, multiyear resistance doesn't arrive until around $45, so barring any drastic changes. Thus, T stock looks like it's charting a course for that level.AT&T's fundamentals have similarly "broken out" in 2019. That is, this is a company which has been plagued by cord-cutting headwinds over the past several years. But AT&T is finally responding to those headwinds by building out a direct-to-consumer streaming service, HBO Max, which is set to launch in 2020. The expectation is that success in the streaming vertical will help offset weakness in the linear video vertical. Meanwhile, 5G coverage is going mainstream in 2020, and that should provide a boost to AT&T's wireless business.Overall, there's a lot to like about T stock here, and improving fundamental and technical trends imply that the 2019 breakout rally in shares isn't over just yet. Under Armour (UAA)Fourth, we have another athletic apparel maker, Under Armour (NYSE:UAA).The chart for UAA stock shows a stock which has been oversold and is due for a bounce-back soon. The technical buy signal on Under Armour over the past year has been buy when UAA stock drops below $18 and when the Relative Strength Index drops below 30. Right now, UAA stock is very close to flashing that buy signal, with shares below $18 and the RSI only a hair above 30. Once RSI drops below 30, history suggests UAA stock will bounce back in a big way.Fundamentally, the recent sell-off in UAA stock also seems overdone. Sure, this is a slow-growth company with some brand identity, executive and accounting issues. But, they are still a very important brand in a very important and rapidly growing athletic apparel market, with margins that are making significant upward progress.Considering all that, the long-term earnings power here says that UAA stock is worth a lot more than $17. * 7 Tech Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 The implication? Be ready to buy this dip. UAA stock won't stay down here for long. Okta (OKTA)Fifth, we have cloud security company Okta (NASDAQ:OKTA).The story that OKTA's chart tells is one of a stock that is breaking out after a brief period of consolidation. Okta has been a very strong stock. It spends very little time in oversold territory. But every once in a while, valuation friction rears its ugly head and OKTA stock does dip into oversold territory. See late 2018 or late 2019.But with both the Relative Strength Index and stock rebounding, it appears OKTA is breaking out. The last time a breakout like this happened, OKTA stock marched from $60 to $140 in a matter of months.Fundamentally, everything here checks out. This is a 50%-plus revenue growth company disrupting a multi-billion-dollar (and still growing) cybersecurity space with a one-of-a-kind, identity-based solution. Gross margins are huge (over 70%), so as long as revenue growth drives positive operating leverage in the long run, Okta has an opportunity to produce huge profits at scale.Nothing about these fundamentals has changed over the past few months. OKTA stock just got hit by some valuation headwinds. Now, those headwinds have passed, and shares look ready to get back to their winning ways. Chegg (CHGG)Sixth, we have connected learning platform Chegg (NYSE:CHGG).On the technical side of things, Chegg appears to be in the very early innings of a multi-quarter breakout. CHGG stock has been hit hard recently. But it has also shown signs of strength ever since a strong Q3 earnings report. This recent strength has propelled the stock's 20-day moving average above its 50-day moving average for the first time in a few months. This bullish crossover signal has materialized just four times over the past three years. Each time, it preceded a huge move higher in CHGG stock.On the fundamental side of things, Chegg's strong Q3 earnings report confirmed that nothing has changed about this company's fundamentals. Students still need academic help, and they are still seeking for that help through on-demand, connected learning platforms. In that space, Chegg remains unrivaled, and students continue to swarm onto the Chegg platform. Revenues, margins, and profits are all moving higher. * 7 Great High-Yield Stocks With Payouts Over 5% With the fundamentals still rock-solid and the technicals pointing to a big move higher, I think now is the time to double down on CHGG stock. Etsy (ETSY)Last but not least on this list of stocks to buy with great charts is specialty e-commerce marketplace Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY).The technical picture on Etsy implies that you have a really oversold stock -- one running into some big support -- that's due for a nice relief rally soon. Thanks to a convergence of headwinds, including disappointing earnings, ETSY stock has dropped into significantly oversold territory. Indeed, the RSI has only been this low on ETSY once before since 2016. At the same time, shares are running into multi-month support at $40. This combination of big support and dramatically oversold conditions should spark a recovery rally in ETSY stock.The fundamentals here are weakening. Growth is slowing, and margins aren't moving higher like they used to. Still, this is a 20%-plus volume growth company in a secular-growth e-commerce marketplace, with margins that are largely stable. In other words, it's still a very good growth company with a favorable financial profile.The valuation today doesn't seem to reflect this. As such, buying the dip seems like the smart move.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long SKX, TTD, T, OKTA, CHGG and ETSY.
