Should I hold on to my Nike (NYSE:NKE) position?
The company has 13.02 B in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 1.62, which is OK given its current industry classification. Nike Inc has a current ratio of 2.43, demonstrating that it is liquid and is capable to disburse its financial commitments when the payables are due. The company has Net Profit Margin of 6.79 %, which may imply that it executes well on its competitive polices and has reasonable control over its expenses and variable costs. This is very large. In the same way, it shows Net Operating Margin of 11.32 %, which entails that for every 100 dollars of revenue, it generated 0.11 of operating income.
Nike financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Nike, including all of Nike's outstanding debt obligations, and compares it with the equity. In simple terms, the high financial leverage means the cost of production, together with running the business day-to-day, is high, whereas, lower financial leverage implies lower fixed cost investment in the business and generally considered by investors to be a good sign. So if creditors own a majority of Nike assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Nike debt and outstanding corporate bonds gives a good idea of how risky the capital structure of a business is and if it is worth investing in it.

Long-term debt, on the other hand, is anything beyond the 12-month payment timeframe. Common short-term liabilities found on Nike balance sheet include debt obligations and money owed to different Nike vendors, workers, and loan providers.

How important is Nike's Liquidity

Nike financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Nike Inc ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Nike financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Nike's total debt and its cash.
