Nike Stock Fall, Anticipating Revenue Dip on Weak Demand

On Thursday, Nike stock declined, and it disclosed an expected fiscal 2025 revenue drop due to fluctuating demand for its sneakers as customers desired newer brands.

In the after-hours trading session, the firm experienced a -12.36% plummet to $82.55 per stock, an unexpected slide that surprised the company.

According to reports, Nike anticipates a mid-single-digit percentage down in annual revenue, with fourth-quarter earnings missing estimates. However, analysts forecasted a 0.91% surge.

Moreover, the shoes and clothing apparel stock, which has plummeted by -13.00% in 2024, will lose more than $15.00 billion in market value if the losses continue until Friday.

Meanwhile, Nike’s efforts to drive more sales through its direct-to-customer medium in North America have been failing, as customers have become picky about their spending.

Furthermore, the Air Jordan maker’s competitor brands, On and Deckers’ Hoka, have aggressively seized some of the firm’s market share with their more fashionable products, intensifying the industry’s competition.

In the post-trading session, these two firms’ shares declined between -1.00% and -2.00%, respectively.

Meanwhile, Nike has reduced its inventory of oversupplied brands like Air Force 1 to counteract a worsening slide in sales.

It also invested in enhancing running shoes with improved midfoot cushioning for better stability and is planning to release a new version of the famous Air Max line.
