Nike Is Generously Valued
Image Shown: Shares of Nike Inc have been on an upward tear in 2019; however, we think the market has now gotten ahead of itself. While Nike runs a great business, the firm is unlikely to realize the kind of growth rates required to justify its lofty valuation as of this writing. Should the company underperform for even one quarter, that could lead to a sharp correction in the share price of NKE. Nike is performing well in multiple categories, and the news that the US and China reached a “Phase One” partial trade truce further improves the company’s outlook. That said, Nike’s current market price is based on growth assumptions that are very unlikely to be realized, in our view. Should the company stumble for even one quarter, that could see a sharp correction in the share price of NKE.

Nike Posts a Solid Quarter and Issues Strong Guidance
Image Shown: Shares of Nike Inc pop on September 25 after reporting a strong first quarter for fiscal 2020 and issuing favorable guidance for the full fiscal year.Nike reported earnings for the first quarter of its fiscal 2020 (ended August 31) on September 24 and investors clearly liked what they saw. The firm has been performing quite well given foreign currency headwinds and the ongoing US-China trade war, and it’s clear that hasn’t undermined core demand for its popular sportswear and equipment products. We are still staying on the sidelines given how shares of NKE are richly valued, in our view.

A New Measure of Leverage for Dividend-Growth and Income-Oriented Shareholders, One That Is Dividend-Adjusted
As more and more investors rely on company dividends for income, dividends, in our view, have become more debt-like commitments in nature, especially from the perspective of dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders. We plan to roll out a new measure of financial leverage that considers both the company’s debt and the present value of its future expected cash dividend obligations, which, in the eyes of die-hard dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders, may be implicitly assumed to be debt-like commitments in substance. We think this leverage ratio can be used in conjunction with the Dividend Cushion ratio to gain additional insight into the dividend-paying financial health of an entity.
