North America continues to be a challenging market for most sportswear companies, due to the growing competition and people’s fast-changing shopping habits.

Nike - Q3 earnings - revenue breakdown

Nike’s peer Under Armour (UA, UAA) last month reported a 2% increase in fourth-quarter revenues to $1.4 billion, which resulted in flat earnings. A further slump in the Americas was more than offset by the positive outcome in other markets.

Nike was in news for the wrong reasons recently, after Duke basketball player Zion Williamson’s sneaker exploded during a game, causing minor injuries to the player. However, the incident had minimal impact on the stock, which bounced back quickly from the initial dip that followed the report.

On Tuesday, shares of Nike hit a yearly high ($88.59). In Thursday’s regular trading session, Nike stock almost hit the 52-week high with a day’s high of $88.12. The stock has gained 19% since the beginning of this year.
