With China — a key market for Nike — easing its stringent Covid-19 policies, Nike could see an uplift to its bottom line.

The company’s current price/earnings per share (P/E) multiple stands at 34x, beating the sector average of 14.83x, while falling short of its own five-year average of 47.72x.

Trailing its own five-year average indicates room for future stock price growth. More than that, Nike offers a quarterly dividend of $0.34 per share, translating to a 1.12% yield at present.

If an investor wanted to yield $200 per month in Nike dividends, with its 1.12% dividend yield, they would need to own $214,285.71 worth of Nike, or 1,764 shares at current levels.

NKE Price action: Shares of Nike are trading 0.062% higher Monday to $120.42, according to Benzinga Pro.
