Foot Locker's stock falls in wake of Nike's downbeat sales outlook
Shares of Foot Locker Inc. dropped 3.7% in premarket trade Friday, in the wake of Nike Inc. stock pullback on a downbeat sales outlook. In Foot Locker's 10-K filing for the fiscal year-ended Feb. 3, 2018 (the 10-K for the year ended February 2019 has not yet been filed), the athletic footwear seller said it was "highly dependent" on Nike, as about 67% of all merchandise bought in 2017 was from Nike, with each operating division buying 44% to 73% of their merchandise from Nike during the year. As a result, Foot Locker said any "adverse development" in Nike could have an "adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations." Nike's stock dropped 4.8% ahead of Friday's open, after the company reported late-Thursday fiscal third-quarter earnings that topped expectations, but sales that matched and provided a fourth-quarter sales growth outlook that was below expectations. Foot Locker's stock has rallied 23% over the past three months through Thursday, while Nike shares have climbed 22% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied 16%.

Dow opens lower, erases weekly gain as fears of a slowdown in global growth resurface
U.S. stock indexes opened lower on Friday as signs of weakness in Europe's economy underscored worries about sluggish expansion outside of America. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 120 points, or 0.5%, at 25,847, pushing its weekly gain into negative territory, according to FactSet data. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index retreated 0.4% to 2,844, and the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 0.4% to reach 7,807. Both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq were holding on to solid weekly gains, with the broad-market S&P up 0.8%, while the tech-heavy index is up 1.5% so far this week. Setting the tone for early action on Wall Street was a report on purchasing managers, which pointed to a further slowdown in activity during March after tentative signs of a rebound earlier in the year. The news comes after the Federal Reserve on Wednesday downgraded its economic outlook for the year in the U.S. to 2.1% from 2.3% and signaled that there would be no further increases to interest rates in 2019, citing weakness abroad. Investors also are watching developments surrounding Brexit, with European Union leaders allowing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to postpone Britain's deadline for an exit from Europe's trade bloc beyond March 29, but warned that the country could still crash out.
