After Foot Locker reported weaker than expected results and predicted its SSS would fall 3%-4% for the rest of the year, Citi analyst Kate McShane says that its "global reach and scale" should give it "some protection from vendors changing their allocation strategy," while its inventory situation is superior to that of athletic apparel retailers. She adds that interest in sneakers remains high, and she thinks that the company's comp trends in Q4 and fiscal 2018 could exceed expectations. The analyst thinks that the stock has reached "very attractive levels," and she says it's in a better position than Dick's Sporting (DKS) which she downgraded last Tuesday.
