Nike's Down, but These 2 Nasdaq Stocks Fell Even Further Friday

Nike's Down, but These 2 Nasdaq Stocks Fell Even Further Friday

Futures on the Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) were all over the map in premarket trading Friday morning, as many investors reacted negatively to bad news from athletic footwear and apparel giant Nike in its most recent quarterly financial report. Nike's premarket losses of 13% were extreme, but it turns out that there were two Nasdaq stocks with even bigger declines early Friday. Both Intercept Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ICPT) and Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ: RCII) posted steeper drops as they tried to work through some major setbacks and reassure their shareholders that the future could improve.
