Nike is doing an admirable job delivering earnings growth and returning capital to investors in this hard retail environment. The shares were sold at an average price of $52.13, for a total transaction of $7,089,680.00. Vanguard Group Inc owns $5.41 billion in NIKE, Inc., which represents roughly 6.06% of the company's market cap and approximately 8.98% of the institutional ownership.

Selling and administrative expenses were down 3%. They had dropped 10 percent in the past year through Tuesday's close.

The company has Relative Strength Index (RSI 14) of 38.80 along with Average True Range (ATR 14) of 0.93. The company's beta value is at 0.47. This company shares are 15.86% off its target price of $62.47 and the current market capitalization stands at $89.21B.

Management is watchful of the impact that any kind of EPS variance may have on shares price.

24/7 Wall St. has included some of the main highlights from the earnings report, as well as what analysts are saying after the fact. Although NKE met sales expectations, the components of its earnings growth are not the sustainable ones. The company now has a Return on Equity of 31.70% and Return on Investment of 25.50%.
