The major indexes rose on strong earnings reports from Nike and FedEx after the bell on Tuesday — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.
Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE) beat estimates for both earnings and revenue, sending shares up about 11%.
The footwear and apparel giant also raised its outlook and confirmed progress in clearing out its excess inventory.
FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) missed on revenue expectations but beat on earnings per share. The package delivery company also shared some cost-cutting plans. Shares rose about 5.6% on the news.
Earnings season continues with Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) reporting after the bell on Wednesday.

With the markets so unpredictable and volatile lately, it’s been tricky to trade, even for pros.
