Nike Stumbles After Warning of Drag on Next Year's Results

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Nike slip on Friday after the company warned that weaker currencies in key emerging markets will weigh on next year's results.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Shares of Nike (NKE) are falling on Friday, one day after the company reported better-than-expected third-quarter profit and sales.

The company reported total revenue that rose 12.7% to nearly $7 billion during the quarter, beating analysts' expectations for almost $6.7 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.  Excluding discontinued operations, Nike's profit came to 76 cents a share, beating analyst expectations by 4 cents.
