In a report published Friday, Canaccord Genuity reiterated its Hold rating on Nike (NYSE: NKE), and raised its price target from $94.00 to $100.00.

Canaccord Genuity noted, “NKE reported good FQ2 EPS results of $1.14 vs. our $0.99 estimate ($1.00 consensus). Relative to our model, the beat was driven by a better gross margin (+4c), a push-out of expenses into Q3 (+8c), and other income (+3c). NA futures were +14% vs. our estimate of +10%, indicating still-healthy demand in the US, while China futures (-7%) were also better than we modeled. Despite these positives, guidance for Q3 is below consensus due to the shift in expenses and sales will decelerate in Q4. This was a clean report with more positives than negatives, yet we maintain our HOLD rating as the risk/reward appears balanced.”

Nike closed on Thursday at $99.00.
