NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) missed earnings estimates

NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) did something highly out of character: It missed earnings estimates. The athletic brand posted profit of 62 cents a share, short of the 66-cent average projection. That hasn’t happened since the middle of 2012, seven years ago. The company blamed higher overhead expenses, along with a steeper tax bill, for weighing on earnings. Its effective tax rate was 20.4% — compared with just 6.4% in the year-earlier period, partly due to the tax overhaul passed in 2017.
