How has Coronavirus impacted Nike's stock price?

Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Nike's stock price has had significant negative movement.

Its last market close was $98.7, which is 1.55% down on its pre-crash value of $100.25 and 64.50% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $60.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Nike stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks 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 $993.91.

Is Nike under- or over-valued?

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 26x. In other words, Nike shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-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 2.1662. 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

Nike's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $7.5 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Nike's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Nike's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Nike.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Nike's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.12

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nike's overall score of 21.12 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 15th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nike is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Nike's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.55/100

Nike's environmental score of 5.55 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nike is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nike's social score

Social score: 9.56/100

Nike's social score of 9.56 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nike is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Nike's governance score

Governance score: 13.01/100

Nike's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nike is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Nike's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nike scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Nike hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Nike share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.45% of net profits

Recently Nike has paid out, on average, around 32.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% 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 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nike's case, that would currently equate to about $1.19 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 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2022 (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 $95.34 up to $177.4212. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NKE.US volatility(beta: 1.03)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 1.0288. 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).
