Nike Inc. Strengths: –Very efficient company, best among its sector. Benefiting from low costs due to its outsourcing of production jobs –Concentrating on their strengths. Soccer, basketball and golf –Partnership with other strong brands (ex. Apple) –Higher ROA than competitors
Nike Inc. Weakness and Threats –Possible loss of market share due to the Reebok- Adidas merge –Sluggish economy may influence buyers towards cheaper goods. –Up-start firms like Under Armour are building niche markets.
Nike Inc. Opportunities –Strong global sales and growth. Nike is looking to expand in China primarily, due to this summers Olympics. –Continued expansion into custom shoe business.
Recommendation Based on our research we rate Nike Inc. a HOLD because even though they are a dominant company the current recession is not a good time for luxury goods such as 150 dollar sneakers and most other Nike goods.
