Nike stock is up more than 8% on Tuesday after reporting better than expected earnings that showed some of the company’s supply-chain issues abating.

The sports shoe and clothing company reported strong earnings on Monday, three months after sounding the alarm on supply-chain disruptions.

“(There is) light at the end of the supply-chain tunnel,” Wedbush analysts Tom Nikic and Ezra Weener wrote in a note provided to

“Management noted that the manufacturing reopening in Vietnam is on schedule, with all factories now operational and ramping (currently averaging 80% of normal volume).”

Supply disruptions

Nike said manufacturing disruptions cost them 130 million units of production this fiscal year. While the Wedbush analysts said supply-chain issues appear to be closer to the end than the beginning, problems persist in China.

Bank of America analysts Lorraine Hutchinson and Christopher Nardone said Chinese revenues declined by 24%, more than double earlier forecasts of a 10% decline on the quarter.

“Our view on trends remains clouded due to the demand uncertainty following the Xinjiang cotton controversy (over alleged human rights abuses),” Bank of America analysts wrote in a report provided to

“The remaining question is when China will return to the double-digit sales pace at pre-pandemic company leading margins.”

Nike stock performance

Nike stock surged more than 30% higher to around $173 per share over the summer from June to August, as consumers flooded the company with orders amid a reopening of the economy.

The stock then fell to as low as $145 per share at the end of September when management highlighted supply-chain issues affecting production.

Following its latest earnings report for the quarter ended 30 November, the stock is back up near those highs at $171 per share. Nike stock is up more than 21% year to date.

Earnings performance

Revenue rose by 1% year over year to $11.36bn, beating expectations of $11.25bn, according to Refinitiv data.

Investors were, perhaps, most impressed that earnings per share came in at $0.83, beating analysts’ consensus of $0.63 for a 32% positive upside, according to Refinitiv.

Nike is also embarking on a strategy of more direct-to-consumer sales, which rose 9% in the quarter to $4.7bn.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
