RIM Plunges on Loss; BB10 Delay: Live Blog Recap

Nike (NKE - Get Report) posted fiscal fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday that missed analysts' expectations.

The sneaker maker reported a profit of $549 million, or $1.17 a share, on revenue of $6.47 billion for the three months ended in May; analysts were expecting earnings of $1.37 a share on revenue of $6.51 billion.

The company attributed the year-over-year decline in earnings to lower gross margin, higher SG&A spending, a higher effective tax rate and costs related to restructuring operations in western Europe.

Meanwhile, Constellation Brands (STZ - Get Report) said it would buy the remaining 50% of Crown Imports that it doesn't already own from Anheuser-Busch for $1.85 billion following Anheuser-Busch's deal to buy Modelo.

Constellation and Modelo owned Crown as a joint venture.

Constellation Brands' stock was climbing 4.46% in premarket trading Friday to $22.73.
