    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

    The latest retail sales report gave market participants bad news on the U.S. economic front, with a 1.2% drop in December marking the worst showing in almost a decade. That came as a shock to investors, and some went so far as to question whether the report was accurate in the aftermath of the long government shutdown. Others fear that a consumer slowdown could foreshadow an economic recession, but at the individual-company level, reports from Tempur Sealy International (NYSE:TPX) and Fossil Group (NASDAQ:FOSL) show how different parts of the retail world are seeing different conditions.
