Janney Montgomery Scott maintains a 'Buy' on Nike (NYSE: NKE) price target of $100.00.

Analyst, Eric Tracy, said, "While we were somewhat cautious on shares heading into the print (owing mostly to global uncertainty in Europe/China and too-high consensus FY13 EPS expectations), the magnitude of the 4Q miss ($1.17 vs. our/consensus $1.38/$1.37) and lowered guidance was greater than we feared. As a result, we lower our estimates and FV, but maintain our Buy rating on shares of NKE. While near term upside catalysts are admittedly lacking, and global macro uncertainty is heightened, the bulk of our earnings revisions are non-operational in nature (FX headwinds and higher tax take ~$0.40 from FY13 EPS), taking FY13 EPS guidance from +mid-teens to +HSD."

"We are modeling FY13 EPS of $5.12 (+7%) ex-Cole Haan / Umbro."
