Should you buy Nike stock at $122?

[Note: Nike fiscal year ends in May]

Nike shares (NYSE: NKE), a company that designs, develops and markets footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories, is up 6% in the past twenty-one trading days (one month) and currently sits at around $122. It should be noted that the entire S&P500 has seen marginal growth over the past month. With its recent Q3 2022 earnings report, the company demonstrated its ability to grow despite the deteriorating supply chain situation and lockdowns in China. It is worth mentioning that Greater China accounts for almost 20% of the company’s revenue and generates around 45% of operating profit. In the recent third quarter, Nike’s sales in China fell 8% year-on-year, but the company still managed to post a 5% year-on-year increase in revenue to $10.9 billion. dollars. However, its net income fell 4% year-on-year to 87 cents per share.

Over the past three quarters, Nike’s revenue rose 7% year-on-year to $34.5 billion, while profitability rose 9% year-on-year to $2.91 per share. The company has been focused on protecting its margins which rose 190 basis points to 46.3% in the first nine months of 2022. This is largely due to Nike increasing its revenue to a rate higher than its cost of sales.

While the company’s stock price is currently negatively impacted by supply chain issues, inflation and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we believe these issues are short-term and will end. by resolving in the longer term.
