+ Watch NKE
on My Watchlist
The Company designs, develops and markets footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessory products.
Sports, it's what people do to keep their minds off the troublesome stuff. Health and exercise is a growing trend. Nike is king of sports equipment.
Just keeps going
Nike has some serious brand power. It's still growing at great rates considering it's already impressive size. What's important not to overlook is their dividend! It has continued to grow, and it helps make this a solid stock for the long run. To me, this is what Buffett's talking about when he says he wants to buy stocks that he would feel confident owning if the market shut down for 10 years. The only caveat - don't overpay. A reasonable price is fine, but a sale is even better.
What could be better than fresh Nike shoes
When i was in 5th grade I bought my first pair of solid leather white nikes. I treated them with mink oil. LOL. When i was in 8th grade econ we played pretend stock market and Nike was the first stock I wanted. Ever since then I have wanted to buy NKE.At the age of 40 i purchased my first shares of NKE and since then I've made 11k on the investment. Hoping and expecting the success of this company to continue for many years to come.IF ONLY I HAD BOUGHT REAL SHARES IN THE EARLY 80's :(
Nike on the shoe is the way to go for Gen Z
a runner that continues to win
One of the signs of the achievement of middle class status in growing economies is the acquisition of first world goods. Nothing outside of Apple screams "I have arrived" to the rest of the world than a pair of Nike shoes.
If you're interested in sports, you probably own something from Nike. If you're not interested in sports, you probably own something from Nike. This is the top seated company well positioned to continue growing along with this trend of athletic wear. Despite extremely well performing competitors and an enormous company they're still able to increase both the top and bottom line - often by double digit gains. It may be trading at a premium price to the market, but just like with the products they make the price is easily justified.
Global brand superpower in many growing markets. I'll keep adding Nike to my portfolio for years.
A leader within its industry and a recent record of very strong performance. Despite competition from "up and coming" companies looking to get established as strongly as Nike (ie: Underarmor). I feel this company will keep its place as #1 for many years to come.
One word - Donahoe!
branding coupled with growth and very long track record nuff said Fool on woot !!

Starter stocks I don't own yet
Great opportunity to pick up some shares on the dip.
Great core stock. With recent price dip, this is a good time to establish a position.
HUGE sports company. Keeps on releasing new products, all usually successful. Good international base—50%! 10x bigger than Under Armor—that's not necessarily better, it just means SAFER. Also has a relatively good 24 P/E ratio, better than UA's 70-something
