Nike reported a significant increase in digital sales

Wall Street was swept off its feet when Nike posted the figures for the first quarter of fiscal #2021. 

For the quarter, Nike reported a net income of $1.52 billion, or $0.95 per share. During the same quarter last year, it had $0.86/ share, with a total of $1.37 billion. This year it came above the $0.47 a share consensus.

Revenue-wise, the figures came in at $10.59 billion, beating the $9.15 billion forecasted. Nike sales went up 6% in China, while in North America – the company's largest market, it dropped 2%.

The company’s digital sales gained 82%. The rise was driven by a 200% increase in the women’s apparel division. 

For the future, #Nike expects the revenue to be flat, with demand picking up in the second half of the year. 

Following the report, Nike share price went up 8%. Year-to-date, its price added 15%, while USA30 lost 4%, and USA500 gained 3%.
