Stifel Nicolaus reiterated its Buy rating on Nike (NYSE: NKE) and increased its price target from $104 to $110.

Stifel Nicolaus noted, "Behind continued domestic momentum and signs of stabilization in overseas markets, we remain confident in our 2QFY13 revenue and EPS estimates of $5.97bn and $1.04 (consensus $6.00bn and $1.00). For futures, we expect constant currency global futures growth of 7%-8%, perhaps a slight moderation sequentially (+8% 1Q) behind strength from: 1) a modest pricing benefit (we estimate 1pt.), 2) continued sell-through momentum led by North America and Emerging markets, 3) accelerating basketball momentum, 4) expanded distribution of FlyKnit, and 5) the incremental contribution from the NFL license (took over April 2012)."

Nike closed at $98.08 on Monday.
