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.
