(NYSE:NKE) posted strong fiscal 2011 third quarter earnings of .08 per share, up 7% from the year ago earnings of .01 per share. The company continued to benefit from its strategy of consistently focusing on innovative products that provide a competitive edge over its rivals. Revenue for the quarter fell short of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of ,168 million. Revenues for the NIKE Brand grew 8%. Excluding currency impact, NIKE Brand revenues rose 9% led by growth in all seven NIKE Brand key categories and geographic regions except Japan. Nike's quarterly gross profit increased 5% year over year to ,327 million, while gross margin contracted 110 basis points to 45.8%. The decline was primarily attributable to higher product and freight cost, which was partially offset by favorable profitability from Direct to Consumer operations, positive foreign currency impact and benefits from cost reduction initiatives. Selling and administrative expenses for the quarter grew 5.0% to ,637 million from ,563 million in the year earlier period. Operating income for the quarter grew 7% to 7 million from 3 million in the year ago period. Operating margin came in at 13.9% compared with 14.0% in the year ago period. Global inventories were up 18% year over year to ,536 million, mainly to meet strong demand and counter tough comparison. Nike ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of ,132 million compared with a cash balance of ,225 million in the year ago period. The company's long term strategy of aggressive emerging market expansion and focus on direct to consumer business as well as other brands add to our positive sentiment. The unique amalgamation of solid balance sheet strength, free cash flow generation capability and an efficient managerial team will enhance Nike's top line performance in the coming quarter. Nike's business remains highly competitive in both domestic and international markets running up against local as well as established players like Deckers Outdoor Corp. (NYSE:DECK), Adidas AG (including Reebok) and Puma. We maintain our long term Neutral recommendation on Nike. The quantitative Zacks 2 Rank (short term Buy rating) for the company indicates upward directional pressure on the stock over the near term.???ike On The Run Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. (More.)I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). (NYSE:NKE) is currently in the midst of an historic run of profitability and increasing revenues. The sporting giant, which has seen its share value increase consistently over the past decade, has managed to maintain solid performance, innovation, and a strong commitment to create returns for its shareholders. The company's leadership has been secured for the foreseeable future, and its recent deals with athletic institutions and athletes are poised to give the company an even larger boost to its already robust brand image. Although current economic trends might pose a risk to Nike's industry dominance and overall profitability, the signs all point upward for the company, making it a strong addition to any portfolio. Nike is one of the world's most popular brands in athletic apparel and footwear, and although it has seen increased competition in the industry in the last year, it is still considered the best in show for the sector. The company has been methodical about increasing its brand image and exposure, and has scored several major victories in the last year. Recently, Nike signed four of the top five NBA players in shoe and merchandise sales, as well as its continued collaboration with Michael Jordan's signature brand. In July, the company signed an agreement with the University of Michigan, the richest such deal in college sports to provide apparel and be the official brand of Michigan athletics. Coupled with their recent winning bid to be the official brand for the NBA set to kick off in 2017, Nike is poised to extend its brand even further in the following years, making for a promising future. Despite this image dominance, Nike has seen increased competition from other athletic apparel brands especially Under Armour (NYSE:UA), Skechers (NYSE:SKX), and Adidas (OTCQX:ADDYY). Under Armour and Adidas have been signing athletes on endorsement deals in the hopes of competing with Nike. To put the numbers in perspective, Adidas currently signed NBA star James Harden away from Nike with a reported 0 million deal. Under Armour signed Stephen Curry, the NBA's MVP, as well as golfer Jordan Spieth in deals have already paid off. Under Armour in particular reported a 29% increase in revenues following the push. However, at the moment, it seems that these smaller competitors are taking market share away from each other instead of eating away at Nike's share. Nike is currently sitting atop its industry financially, and justifiably so. In the past year, the company has shown strong and lasting growth and has demonstrated an ability to stay ahead of the competition. The company's numbers this year have been exemplary, and they show little signs of trending in the opposite direction. Already in 2015, the company has seen its shares continue their upward trend moving 46.17% higher in the last twelve months, and 20.9% higher year to date. This tremendous growth comes on the back of consistent growth in revenues worldwide. If following the trend over the last decade, the company's revenue has grown approximately 8.1% per year. For the quarter ending in May 2015, the company posted revenues of .8 billion, exhibiting 4% growth over the previous quarter, and almost 5% growth in revenue expansion year over year, recording 10% growth for fiscal 2015 alone. The company's earnings per share has also seen impressive growth in the past decade, with their EPS currently sitting at .70 (annualized) which represents 24.5% growth year over year from 2014, up from .12 in 2005. In terms of returns for shareholders, Nike is in the midst of a major share repurchasing effort, which coupled with dividend payouts to shareholders totaled .4 billion. The company also reported an ROIC for fiscal 2015 of 28%. However, there are some potential risks involved in Nike's stock. Globally, the company is facing a slowdown in both China and emerging markets, which make up a large percentage of Nike's revenue pie (currently over 50% of Nike's business is outside of North America), and China's market has shown a potential to contract and move away from Nike products in favor of more local luxury brands. These markets have also shown their propensity to take a much more drastic hit when entering bear markets and can thus be a risky proposition when dealing in luxury goods. Finally, there can be some concerns about the lack of Nike's product diversification. Currently, the company's footwear division generates over 61% of the company's revenue, while its apparel, though slowly expanding, has not experienced major growth. This could be concerning should the footwear division stumble at any point. Despite these risks, however, Nike is solid in its fundamentals, and has proven over time that it is capable of both constantly growing revenues and consistently returning earnings and dividends back to shareholders. While the entry price might be slightly high at the moment, Nike has shown slight downward fluctuations in share price, sitting nearly below all time highs. While looking for a longer term entry point might depend on a deeper pullback in share prices, especially considering the broader market dynamics, it is also worth noting the upcoming dividend. The ex dividend date is September 3rd meaning that investors trying to take advantage of the income would be smart to avoid waiting too long. While more upside in shares is certainly warranted based on the financial outperformance compared to peers, the price to earnings ratio at 31.03 should give pause for concern. A pullback towards 9 110 would signal a more optimal entry point with 0 per share as the medium term target for the position. While global economic headwinds may derail Nike's efforts to continue the upward march, the company is nevertheless poised to see further upside as it expands upon its global image and brand awareness. With such an expansive base of recognition across the globe, Nike's fortunes are poised to grow as solid financial results and strong management propel share prices to the upside over the medium term.???ike Presents A Great Buying Opportunity Shares of Nike Inc. (NYSE:NKE) are currently trading 15.3% off their 52 week high at 4.81 achieved in May. Many investors are skeptical about whether the stock can regain momentum after a lackluster earnings release for the fourth quarter. I am of the view that investors should buy the shares at the current cheap price, as the company's fundamentals remain solid. In this article, I will walk you through some of the thoughts that helped in formulating my buy decision. My value analysis includes a set of NKE's comparable peers such as Adidas (OTCQX:ADDYY) and lululemon athletica inc. (NASDAQ:LULU). The estimated stock price is determined by weighting the valuations calculated by five different peer average trading multiples EV/Sales, EV/EBITDA, EV/Sales, P/E, and P/S. I have assigned a 25% weight to each of the EV/EBITDA, P/E, and EV/FCF valuation approaches as I believe those multiples are more relevant valuation metrics for a matured firm such as NKE. P/S and EV/Sales multiples are then weighted 12.5% each. 1. Nike's stock is reasonably priced relative to the firm's growth potential (see table above). Analysts in average predict NKE's revenue, EBITDA, and EPS to rise by 2 year CAGRs of 6.2%, 8.9%, and 11.7% over the current and next fiscal years. The rates are slower than the peer averages of 14.9%, 19.2%, and 20.9%, which are driven up primarily by the high growth rates for LULU and Under Armour (NYSE:UA). Accounting for the earnings growth, Nike's stock trades at 1.4x PEG, almost in line with the peer average of 1.5x, suggesting a fair valuation. 2. Nike's stock valuations appear to have fully reflected market's concern on the firm's slow growth (see table above). Aside from the aforementioned below average growth estimates, NKE has a superior profitability. Although the company has a slightly lower LTM gross margin, its EBITDA, EBIT, and net income margins are all above the peer averages. Both the ROE and ROIC measures are substantially higher than the group averages. NKE is also much less leveraged and has a solid liquidity position. The firm's LTM FCF margin of 3.9% is much higher than the group average of only 2.1%. The low debt level and robust profitability have helped the company maintain a strong interest coverage ratio. Lastly, the current and quick ratios are above the peer averages, reflecting a very liquid corporate balance sheet. Nonetheless, the current stock price of .27 implies a 15% valuation discount to the five peer average trading multiples based on my model (see table below). I believe the sizable valuation gap should be more than sufficient to account for Nike's growth weakness as it appears the market does not give enough credits to NKE's strong global presence and healthy financial performance. 3. Despite having a small dividend yield of 1.5%, Nike has a sound dividend policy. Annual dividend per share has been steadily raised to .39 in FY2012 from We continue to be troubled by the reports coming out of Qatar related to the World Cup and migrant worker conditions, Visa said in a statement. .24 in FY2002 by a solid 10 year CAGR of 17.3% (see below). 4. The firm also has ample financial resource to continuously raise dividends. The chart below shows that over the past 10 years annual dividend paid only represents less than a half of the annual FCF generated, indicating ample room for dividend improvements. 5. On a technical perspective, the stock has recently surpassed its 50 day simple moving average. The last time the stock went pass the 50 day SMA was in October 2011, followed by an upward price trend for more than half a year (see below). Bottom line, I recommend a buy rating for the stock on its very attractive risk/reward profile. Investor may also sell out of money puts to establish a long position if you are more comfortable with a lower stock valuation. Disclosure: I am long NKE.

Parker issued an even rosier outlook for the sports apparel giant, projecting annual revenue of billion to billion by 2015.Nike's competitors may want to recalibrate their pace and adjust their targets.Just a year after projecting revenue of billion by 2015, Nike executives significantly upped their expectations for the sports footwear and apparel giant to from billion to billion.We're ahead of schedule, Mark Parker, Nike's president and chief executive officer, said at Tuesday's investor meeting at the company's headquarters near Beaverton. Without offering details, the company cited the past year's performance and growth opportunities for the revised figure.The revised outlook set the tone for the parade of company executives appearing before more than 60 stock analysts and institutional investors. They offered their immediate and long term forecasts for growth in segments ranging from skateboarding to running, and everything in between, describing a strategy meant to extend the Oregon company's reign as biggest sporting goods company in the world. Nike executives made a similar presentation in May in New York.Potential disruptions, they said, include higher costs for labor, materials and transportation around the world. Closer to home, officials said, they have come up with a Plan B in the event of disruptive labor stoppages in the National Football League and National Basketball Association.The presentation continued the momentum of Monday's upbeat financial results. Nike posted fourth quarter revenues of nearly billion, a 14 percent increase over the same period last year, with fiscal 2010 revenues of .9 billion up 10 percent over the previous year.Those year end results demonstrate that Nike has made substantial progress to deliver our 2015 global growth strategy and objectives, Parker said.Demand for the brand is strong, said Matt Arnold, an analyst at Edward Jones Co. in Des Peres, Mo., told Bloomberg News after the company released financial results Monday, adding that Nike is operating from a position of strength.Wall Street apparently approves: Nike's shares traded as high as .58 on Tuesday 11 percent higher than Monday's close before ending the regular session at .90. Its results helped fuel a market rally in stocks of clothing stores, restaurants and jewelers. In after hours trading, Nike hit .25.After Parker left the stage, one Nike executive after another took the lead in the Tiger Woods Center to explain how the company had a dominant position in a particular activity (or part of the world) and how it would expand that position in the coming years. Videos broke up the drumbeat of speeches.Here are some of the category forecasts and their presenters:Nike BrandLast year, Nike projected fiscal year 2015 revenue of billion. That was so 2010. On Tuesday, the company announced a revised target of billion to billion.Nearly every Nike Brand category was up in 2011, and we're building even more momentum as we enter fiscal 2012, Nike Brand President Charlie Denson told the audience.The running category recorded .8 billion in sales in the past fiscal year a 30 percent increase over the previous by far the biggest growth segment of eight categories in the Nike Brand. The growth was attributed in part to sales of Nike Free a lightweight shoe that's been available since 2004 but which has benefited from consumers' rising interest in lightweight running as well as the Lunar Nike shoes.Basketball, with .9 billion in sales and 11 percent increase, followed the running category for growth. The only category that did not grow was Nike Golf, which had a 4 percent sales decline, which Denson attributed to the overall decrease in sales in earthquake and tsunami ravaged Japan.Denson, noting that Nike has been selling products in China for 30 years, said the past fiscal year was decisive in showing that Nike is the dominant brand in the world's most populous country. Sales reached .1 billion in the past fiscal year exceeding billion for the first time and are projected to double by 2015.We wanted to undeniably win and separate from the competition in basketball, running and sportswear, Denson said. We wanted to end the debate. We are clearly the number one brand in China today. Adidas and Li Ning are alternately mentioned as the number two brand in the country.Globally, Denson said, Nike also is targeting market growth in Brazil, which will host to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. It will be the first time the premier sporting events have been staged back to back in the same nation since Mexico hosted the 1968 Olympics and the 1970 World Cup in 1970.We're putting all the pieces in place to ensure revolutionary growth, in Brazil, projecting billion in sales in the country by the end of 2016.???ike Reels From Sports Scandals SummaryVisa has stepped up to its role as sport moral policeman.Sport sponsorship has long been a mainstay in the marketing campaigns of companies like Coca Cola (NYSE:KO), Budweiser InBev (NYSE:BUD), Visa (NYSE:V), McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) and Nike (NYSE:NKE). In associating with athletes and athletic events, the sponsors expect a halo effect around their products, bigger sales, and victory over the competition.For years this has been a low risk, high reward strategy, benefiting sponsors and, especially, the groups running the games.But over the last year that equation has suddenly changed. Should investors be concerned? Only investors in one particular company.So far no one is being hurt. Nike is up 33% over the last year. Visa is up 28%. Anheuser Busch InBev is up 12% and even investors in McDonald's and Coca Cola have just about broken even, when dividends are added in.While most sponsors have been reluctant to condemn the people they are paying, one has taken the role of moral policemen seriously. That one is Visa, which warned FIFA it might pull out nine months after issuing a similar warning to the NFL over the Ray Rice video last year. In both cases the company's leadership seems to have gotten results. Rice lost his season, and FIFA head Sepp Blatter quit two days after being re elected.But Visa has an arms length relationship with sports. Nike is all in, and has had to make some especially tough decisions. It stuck with Tiger Woods despite losing an estimated billion in market cap as that scandal played out. They quickly dumped Ray Rice, as they previously dumped biker Lance Armstrong, but are now at the center of their own scandal, concerning track coach Alberto Salazar and accusations of using performance enhancing drugs.Nike is more dependent on sports sponsorships than any company on the planet, and its behavior has followed a pattern. They initially defend the people or leagues being accused, then waited to see if the scandal blew over, and if it didn't they would walk away and try to claim they had nothing to do with the subject at hand. This may not work with Salazar, whose Oregon Project is dear to chairman Philip Knight's heart. But track, while the original Nike niche, is now a very small part of its business, and no one should be trading its stock based on it.The FIFA scandals however does raise larger questions for Nike. It's not a main FIFA sponsor, as Adidas (OTCQX:ADDYY) is, but it does sponsor many national teams, and many of its relationships run through the kind of sports marketing companies that have been called middle men in the bribery. Soccer was responsible for about .3 billion in Nike revenue for the company last year, out of billion.The dependence of Nike on sports, and sports sponsorships, have made it the biggest corporate victim in the scandal, by far, as some analysts have cut price targets and downdrafts in the shares have been detected. But does the company face real problems or is this just a buying opportunity? Any company with a Price/Earnings multiple of 29 can be blown down by a big wind, and it's just possible a storm is brewing up around the company's whole business model.???ike Reports On June 28 After The Close NIKE, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, development, marketing, and sale of footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessory products for men, women, and children worldwide.

The designers' attorney, Matt Levin, said in a statement Tuesday that the case had been resolved through a confidential settlement. Both Nike and Adidas declined to comment, but a clerk with the state court in Oregon, where the lawsuit was filed, said both sides agreed to dismiss the matter on June 4. Nike, the world's largest sportswear maker, sued Denis Dekovic, Marc Dolce and Mark Miner last December for at least million in damages, alleging that the trio started consulting for Adidas while still working at Nike, violating their non compete agreements. Before leaving Nike, the complaint alleged, the designers copied sensitive documents, including drawings for an unreleased shoe made for one of Nike's sponsored athletes, and tried to cover their tracks by erasing emails and text messages from their work issued cellphones and laptops. Nike's complaint said the trio brought Adidas information about Nike's plans for its running, sportswear and soccer lines and pitched Adidas on a design studio that was a knockoff of its own design lab. Last September, Adidas announced it would open an urban footwear design studio in Brooklyn, to be staffed by Dekovic, Dolce and Miner. Nike also claimed that Adidas knew of the non compete agreements and promised to pay for any legal fallout. In a countersuit filed in May, the designers had claimed that Nike invaded their privacy and broke federal law in accessing their personal electronic communications. They said Nike's corporate culture was stifling their creativity and that their idea for a design studio did not rely on Nike's confidential information. The case is Nike, Inc v Denis Dekovic, Marc Dolce, and Mark Miner, in the Circuit Court of the State of Oregon for the County of Multnomah, No. 14 cv 18876.

There can also be five or six Shox that vary in height, and triangular and rectangular Shox that provide better stability. Some shoes have midsoles made entirely of Shox, like the TL series. Athletes that are notable for wearing shoes with Shox technology include Vince Carter, Jermaine O'Neal, David M. West and Carlos Boozer.

The prototype looked more like a medieval torture device called The Boot and performed much the same way. The Shox VC IV, Shox signature shoe for Vince Carter, is also released.???ike Stumbles in Race with Reebok ASQ Quarterly Report Shows Ups and Downs in Manufacturing Non Durables MILWAUKEE Rivalries abound in the non durable category as food and beverage giants vie to gain the quality edge, according to the Quarterly Quality Report released today by the American Society for Quality. In food and beverage, Sara Lee rises to the top ranks for the first time and Pepsi jumps ahead of Coca Cola. In the athletic footwear category Reebok gains the quality lead over its arch rival Nike. The research indicates that these high marks may be the result of the intense competition for these industries in both price and innovation. These companies understand that the cost to the consumer for switching is low. The ASQ Quarterly Quality Report examines one of the most critical components of the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), also released today: perceived quality of the goods and services measured by the ACSI. This quarter's Quality Report focuses on customers' perceived quality of the goods and services provided in manufacturing non durables: food and beverage, pet food and cigarettes as well as apparel, athletic shoes and personal care/cleaning products. The ACSI reports on different sectors each quarter. Heinz, Hershey and General Mills who are all tied for the top spot. Sara Lee's recipe for improvement has been a combination of major restructuring that included shedding of certain non core food product lines and the introduction of lean manufacturing processes that have improved employee efficiency in their plants, said West. West notes scores for Tyson and Dole continue to lag. Both offer products that are sold fresh and unfortunately those products from time to time break into the news with contamination outbreaks. PEPSI LEADS IN SODA WARS Soft drinks continue to be a consumer favorite as evidenced by the fact that beverages lead the quality index this quarter with an overall score of 91. The soda wars continue as Pepsi takes a slight perceived quality lead over Coca Cola a reverse of last year's results at this time. This lead may be a result of Pepsi's ability to quickly tap into America's growing obsession with obesity by focusing on diet sodas and bottled water. This decline may be due in part to a lower perceived value of Nike in comparison to Reebok. Last year's acquisition of Reebok by Adidas set the stage for a new level of competition and the challenge was for them to maintain quality while going toe to toe with Nike, said West. This quarter's perceived value and loyalty scores are showing that consumers feel like they are getting more for their money right now with Reebok. About the Quarterly Quality Report ASQ's Quarterly Quality Report is an analysis of customers' perceptions of the quality and reliability of products and services. It is based on data generated by the nation's leading measure of customer satisfaction, the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI).

The brand signature swoosh will begin to appear on all uniforms in the 2017 2018 season. our exclusive oncourt apparel provider, Silver said in a statement, will be instrumental in our collective efforts to grow the game globally while applying the latest in technology to the design of our uniforms and oncourt products. executives were growing increasingly unhappy with their former apparel provider, Adidas, ESPN reports. The German company focused mainly on the soccer market, and its sleeved NBA jerseys were heavily criticized by American basketball players and fans, including superstar LeBron James. Adidas, which struck an 11 year deal with the NBA back in 2006, preemptively announced in March that it would not seek to extend its contract.???ike to pass on renewing Manchester United deal Nike (NKE) will end a long time deal to supply Manchester United (MANU) with soccer kits after its current contract expires, according to Reuters. The 7th place soccer club was looking for a new sponsorship deal at around (2.1M) per season. What to watch: Nike isn't expected to go overboard trying to nab deals with other top European teams with its DNA in backing the top individual stars in a sport, rather than clubs or teams. Adidas (ADDYY) will likely have talks with Man U. about replacing Nike. what a surprise! dafjev and I have been warning the MANU bulls for ages. The MANU management are in cloud cuckoo land if they think anyone is going to hand over 600m over 10yrs. Adidas are rumoured to be in the running now that Nike have pulled out, but would they pay 60m per year? Of course not they only pay Real Madrid 31m per year and Real Madrid are European Champions. Do the math . I wonder if the club have already spent the money they were expecting Nike to cough up . It is indeed surprising that Adidas agreed to this size deal, especially if you consider that Nike, who have all the info possible because they have run this business for the past 13 years, made a public announcement that a deal at this level is unprofitable. That said, this deal is not much higher than what analysts were already expecting and is in fact still less than the 80m/yr that the company guided analysts to at the time of its IPO. In addition, with the chevy deal and kit supply deal now fixed for a decade, revenue will basically stop growing post FY16 while costs will continue to rise so earnings will start declining post FY16 peak of 20p (assuming they manage to improve performance otherwise they are bust). Utd made 8.4 (28.2 YTD) in Retail, Merchandising, Apparel Product Licensing revenue for the third quarter so Adidas basically paid 2.2x on a quarterly basis. As per revenue, so far the Glazers have shown they know how to monetize a brand with the slue of deals being signed. I expect them to continue to be aggressive signing new commercial deals etc. that will generate revenue. I do not like the debt levels thou. Depending on the team's performance, season ticket prices which have been frozen over the past 2 3 seasons may also increase and there is the allure of prize money from various competitions. The EPL TV contracts are also improved for the new season. Utd also has an academy that generates funds from player sales. There are a lot of other channels for growth, all is not gloom. I expect them to continue to be aggressive signing new commercial deals etc. Facebook and a host of others. What people appear not to realise is that there really is only a finite amount of money available for marketing (globally or otherwise) and with most of the world's major economies exhibiting slow growth (at best) one wonders where this huge boost to earnings (and therefore marketing budgets) is going to come from?
