(Reuters) – Nike Inc’s (N:NKE) shares were set to open at a record high on Wednesday after the world’s largest sports shoemaker posted stellar quarterly results, driven by online sales.
Shares of the company were up 12.6% at $131.6 in premarket trading.
The brand’s digital sales, especially in North America, helped offset fall in sales at traditional brick-and-mortar stores due to COVID-19 restrictions and social-distancing measures.
