Stifel Nicolaus Maintains Buy on Nike


Stifel Nicolaus is out with its report today on Nike (NYSE: NKE), maintaining Buy.

In its report, Stifel Nicolaus writes, "U.S. Back-to-school checks show Nike remains on top of its footwear game. Our in-store and phone checks with over 100 US retail locations (DKS (NYSE: DKS), TSA, FL (NYSE: FL), FINL (NASDAQ: FINL), Champs) highlighted strong back-to-school demand for Nike footwear product. A NIKE shoe was referenced as the top seller/most popular in 74% of the 100 plus checks (68% men's, 80% women's), approximately equivalent to the 77% of the checks in 2010. Standouts are the lightweight running offerings, most notably the Nike Free (Run and TR), the Air Max, and the Lunar Series."
