Nike, Red Hat And Five Below Tumble After Hours


Shares of Nike Inc (NYSE: NKE) were trading down more than 2 percent in Tuesday's after-hours session, following the announcement of the company’s third quarter results. The apparel and footwear giant reported earnings of $0.55 per share, up from $0.45 per share posted a year ago, and $0.06 above the Street’s consensus. Revenue of $8.032 billion, however, came in below expectations for $8.2 billion.

Although the company beat expectations for its fourth quarter, posting earnings of $0.77 per share ($0.01 above consensus) on revenue of $326.4 million, $2.66 ahead of estimates, guidance for the first quarter was dissatisfying. Management guided for first quarter earnings of $0.09 to $0.10 per share, on revenue of $186 million to $189 million. Consensus stands at $0.10 per share and $188.6 million.
