Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on Nike (NYSE: NKE) price target of $100.00 (from $115.00).

Analyst, Taposh Bari, said, "NKE's 4Q was expected to be choppy but still disappointed due to: 1) weak 1Q guidance, 2) reduced FY13 guidance, 3) China deceleration, and 4) ongoing GM % challenges. That said, we attribute most of these issues to broader macro/FX challenges and see $85/share as a good time to buy a high quality company whose stock has corrected 25% in 2 months."

Lowers FY13 EPS estimate from $5.78 to $5.20.
