For the last quarter, EPS raised to 0,93$ from -0,51$ the year before. These 0,93$ EPS beat the 0,51$ estimates by 82%. It's phenomal, tabarnac.
Not so hard to go from negative to positive. But let's take a look at quarterly EPS over the last 10 quarters:
If we compare may 2021 to may 2019 (thus, we exclude 2020 which was a year of panic), the EPS went from 0,62$ to 0,93$, an increase of 50% over two years. It's incredible for a 240B$ company that sells shoes.
It means that Nike managers have exceptional skills to drive their business.
Friday, the stock was up 15%. It's very big surge. But is Nike expensive?
At current price, Nike is sold for about 30 times next year's earnings. It's not cheap, but for such growth, such predictable earnings, a ROE of 55 and such a dominant business, I would say that its a fair price. Plus, the estimates for years to come are exceptional.
In the recent months, I sold some NKE shares, thinking that this year would be difficult for them. I was wrong. And today, a Stephen Jarislowsky quote came to mind:
"Never sell a good asset".
