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.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Earlier this week, my Bloomberg Opinion colleague Chris Bryant examined the ongoing troubles for advanced jet engines used on today’s commercial airliners. These engines now seem to be reaching their technical limits, and as Bryant says, we may be asking too much of the technology.That’s not great news for the companies making those turbines, or for those flying the aircraft. It’s also not the best news for the climate, given the trajectory of emissions from air travel and air freight. Carbon dioxide emissions from commercial aviation made up 2.4% of global emissions in 2018 and, according to the International Council on Clean Transportation, have grown 32% in just five years.The geography of those emissions is highly concentrated. Three markets — the U.S., the European Union and China — account for more than half of all emissions; the top 10 emitters contribute more than 70% of the global total.There’s something hopeful, actually, in that geographical distribution. High concentration means that tackling emissions in just three markets can have an outsized impact, and standards set in those large markets are easy for others to follow. There’s another aspect to the distribution of aviation emissions that’s worth examining: emissions by type of aircraft. Bryant writes of problems with engines on both widebody and narrowbody aircraft: the Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc Trent 1000 engines used on the widebody Boeing Co. 787, and United Technologies Corp. subsidiary Pratt & Whitney’s geared turbofan used on the narrowbody Airbus SE A320neo. While widebody aircraft make up one-third of global emissions, narrowbody and regional passenger plans are almost half. If the turbines used to propel the largest and longest-range of aircraft are approaching technical limits but almost half of emissions are from shorter-range and smaller aircraft, then there’s space to innovate, for emissions’ sake, at the short and small end. And that space looks electric and hybrid. Next month, Vancouver-based Harbour Air will fly its first electric seaplane, a De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver prototype retrofitted with a propulsion system from Seattle-based electric aviation company MagniX. It’s a first look at what electric commercial flight could be, and as it draws upon a sophisticated, global and continually improving network of battery makers while the cost of batteries continues to decrease, it has room to grow. “Because of airborne mobility development, this technology is unstoppable, and it’s getting more practical as every day goes by,” says Greg McDougall, Harbour Air’s CEO. “The brainpower and money involved is snowballing, and there’s no doubt we can roll out what we’re doing to other small airlines.” It’s an infectious enthusiasm, but it just might take to the air elsewhere, too.

Adidas plans to close high-tech "robot" factories in Germany and the United States it launched to bring production closer to customers, saying on Monday deploying some of the technology in Asia would be "more economic and flexible". The Adidas factories were part of a drive to meet demand for faster delivery of new styles to its major markets and to counter rising wages in Asia and higher shipping costs. It originally planned a global network of similar factories.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed 0.2% higher and was about 2% away from reclaiming its record high level, hit last in April 2015. European shares have logged strong gains this week on growing optimism over a trade truce between the United States and China. "All the good news regarding trade has also been largely priced in, so if the rumors prove to be wrong the risk to the potential downside are actually far bigger," said Simona Gambarini, markets economist at Capital Economics in London.
German sportswear company Adidas expects a boost to sales from new soccer merchandise ahead of the 2020 European championships after quarterly growth was held back by a weaker performance from Yeezy shoes designed by Kanye West. Adidas decided to limit supplies of Yeezy products this year to maintain their exclusivity, Chief Executive Kasper Rorsted told journalists. Shares in Adidas, which have risen by more than a third in the last year, were down 2.9% at 1046 GMT.
German sportswear company Adidas said it expects a significant acceleration of sales in the fourth quarter after it reported stronger-than-expected sales and operating profit for the third quarter as it returned to growth in Europe. Sales rose a currency-adjusted 6% to 6.41 billion euros ($7.10 billion), beating average analyst forecasts for 6.32 billion euros, while operating profit was flat at 897 million euros, also above analyst consensus for 882 million euros. Shares in Adidas were up 1.1% at 0716 GMT in early Frankfurt trade.
It began Monday when Adidas AG (ADR) (OTC: ADDYY) CMO Eric Liedtke announced he was stepping down. Liedtke was largely responsible for Adidas’ resurgence in North America and was presumably the company’s next pick for CEO. On Tuesday, more bombshells were dropped when Under Armour Inc (NYSE: UAA) CEO and Founder Kevin Plank announced he was resigning, followed by Nike Inc (NYSE: NKE) CEO Mark Parker resignation just a few hours later.

Nike Inc's online sales growth and a bullish outlook in China put it on a firm path for years to come and should help it easily ride out rises in U.S. import tariffs on its Chinese-made sneakers, Wall Street analysts said on Wednesday after a strong set of quarterly results. Shares in the world's biggest sportswear maker surged as much as 5% in early trade after the results late on Tuesday showed its margins soaring and sales up 42% through apps and websites it has developed under its Nike Direct strategy. One big questionmark over Nike has been whether it will be hit in its biggest growth market, China, by a backlash against American-branded goods in response to President Donald Trump's rhetoric and successive rounds of import tariffs.
Nike (NYSE:NKE) stock is up over 20% in 2019. But it hasn't been a smooth path for the Beaverton, Oregon company. Nike will report their first-quarter earnings on September 24. NKE stock is trading at a level of resistance it has failed to break twice this year.Source: Shutterstock Will the third time be the charm? There are several reasons to believe it will. And a positive earnings report is just one of them. Nike Expects to Post Positive EarningsIn June, Nike reported positive top-line sales but a negative earnings per share. This was the first miss by the company in many years. The stock had already climbed nearly 20% at that point, and many investors took the report as an opportunity to take profits.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsI believe in the mantra that good companies don't suddenly become bad. Nike is experiencing increased competition and a changing retail landscape. But the company is showing an incredible ability to adapt and is still delivering value to shareholders by way of a small dividend and a proportionate amount of share buybacks. * 7 Triple-'F' Rated Stocks to Leave on the Shelf This leads me to believe that if Nike posts positive earnings (as expected), there is no reason to believe the stock should not get a lift going into the holiday season despite an increasingly competitive landscape. Nike Outsells its CompetitionThere's no question that both Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY) stock which is up nearly 50% and Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) stock which is up over 30% are crushing Nike stock in 2019. But a closer look shows that Nike still is beating both regarding a fundamental metric: sales.Nike is forecasting full-year revenue of $39.1 billion as opposed to $26.43 billion for Adidas and $3.68 billion for Lululemon. In fairness, Lululemon is a niche player on the high end of the "athleisure" market. but the Vancouver company's dominance in the marketplace is a threat to Nike's future growth.And it's a threat Nike is taking seriously. The company continues to expand its line of women's athleisure wear. One example of this commitment was the company's "high performance kits" that they introduced for this year's Women's World Cup. Nike also has introduced their own yoga collection that includes both men's and women's offerings.Adidas competes with Nike directly in the sneaker game. But while both companies have exposure to China that is causing concern, Adidas is headquartered in Germany, a country that is either headed for or possibly already in a recession. Nike is Exhibiting a Start-Up MentalityI'm old enough to remember when Nike was a start-up. But despite becoming a blue-chip, dividend-paying stock, Nike has continued to adapt to a changing retail landscape and consumer. One of its latest ventures is the Nike House of Innovation 000 in New York City. The store is an extension of Nike's growth in the digital space. Mobile scan and pay, interactive kiosks, and displays that reflect local trends are all a staple of the Fifth Avenue store.Nike is also demonstrating a commitment to an enhanced in-store experience in its partnership with Foot Locker (NYSE:FL). As other shoe brands are fleeing the brick-and-mortar model, Nike is showing that in-store can work if the experience is right.But that doesn't mean that Nike lacks a strong digital presence. It has initiated a partnership that allows the company to sell directly on Amazon. And the company has also partnered with Walmart's (NYSE:WMT) urban brand, Jet.com. The store saw digital sales growth of over 40% in 2018 which was well ahead of the retail sector. And Nike's mobile demand accounted for over half of its e-commerce sales last year. What's Next for NKE Stock?Nike stock has been right around this $90 level twice before this year. In June, NKE plunged as the company posted their first decline in EPS in a long time. However, the decline was short-lived and by early July, NKE stock was back near present levels. Once again, it failed to sustain the momentum.Is the third time the charm? I think it will be. NKE stock is not inexpensive. It currently trades for over 30 times its fiscal 2020 consensus EPS.However, analysts are high on Nike stock. And the technical indicators for Nike show a stock that has investors looking for a catalyst. A positive earnings report should provide just that spark.As of this writing, Chris Markoch did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
