How has coronavirus impacted Nike's share price?
Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Nike's share price has had significant positive movement.
Its last close price was $122.58, which is 18.22% up on its pre-crash value of $100.25 and 104.30% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the shares fell as low as $60.00.
If you had bought $1,000 worth of Nike shares at the start of February 2020, those shares would have been worth $632.40 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $1.00.

Is Nike stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Nike stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nike's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nike's P/E ratio
Nike's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Nike shares trade at around 34x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Nike's PEG ratio
Nike's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6301. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Nike's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nike's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nike's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$50.6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||12.17%|
|Gross profit TTM||$21.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||10.02%|
|Return on equity TTM||37.34%|
|Market capitalisation||$182.8 billion|

Nike share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.18% of net profits
Recently Nike has paid out, on average, around 37.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nike shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nike's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 per share.
While Nike's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Nike may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Nike's most recent dividend payout was on 2 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Nike's shares ever split?
Nike's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 December 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nike shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nike shares which in turn could have impacted Nike's share price.
Nike share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Nike's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.7353 up to $137.5828. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Nike's is 1.1059. This would suggest that Nike's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
