+ Watch NKE
on My Watchlist
The Company designs, develops and markets footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessory products.
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
start buying with expectation of having full position at $70. World Cup will be big catalyst. China will be better than expected. Currency headwinds will temper down a bit. Expecting price to be $80 in a year.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

Market leader, maintained standards, stable share price performance, this seems to be a very interesting company to invest in.
Nike, another market leader for your long term portfolio.
Nike is the giant in sports apparel and shows no signs of letting up.
NKE has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 at the 1, 3, 5, and 10 year mark. Solid long term outperformance will likely continue for the next 5 years with its dividend.
