Introducing WSJ’s Take On the Week
WSJ’s Take On the Week brings you the insights and analysis you need to get a leg up on the business and financial week to come. In less than 20 minutes, host Dion Rabouin cuts through the noise to explain the major business and financial news that may move markets, all so you can make smarter investing decisions. Episodes drop every Sunday.  This week, we have our eye on the sneaker giant Nike. The company behind the Lebron 21, Air Force 1 and Air Jordans is expected to report its first quarter earnings, and it comes at a pivotal time. Nike stock is down around 20% year to date, as it faces a glut of inventory and a rash of thefts. Ahead of the holiday shopping season, Barclays analyst Adrienne Yih explains why she thinks it’s time to Just Do It and bet on Nike stock going higher. We’re also adjusting our collars as we gear up for Paris Fashion Week. What does the semiannual designer presentation tell us about how luxury brands are doing in the market? WSJ reporter Nick Kostov will let us know. And with the release of the new movie “Dumb Money” about the GameStop saga, we’re going to talk meme stocks with WSJ’s Gunjan Banerji.
