Skechers (SKX) soared 17% on Friday morning, after the footwear company posted mixed earnings with guidance that beat Wall Street expectations.

However, its market cycle point to a near term correction followed by an upside opportunity.

The footwear company reported earnings per share of $0.31 versus $0.23 expected, and total revenue of $10.8 versus $10.1 billion expected. For the current quarter, the company forecast earnings of $0.70-0.75 versus the $0.63 average analyst estimate.

COO David Weinberg explained that,”For the quarter, our growth was fueled by double-digit sales increases in each of our international businesses.”
