NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The ex-dividend date for Nike (NYSE: NKE) is tomorrow, August 30, 2012. Owners of shares as of market close today will be eligible for a dividend of 36 cents per share. At a price of $98.93 as of 9:30 a.m. ET, the dividend yield is 1.5%.

The average volume for Nike has been 3.2 million shares per day over the past 30 days. Nike has a market cap of $35.1 billion and is part of the consumer goods sector and consumer non-durables industry. Shares are up 2.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

NIKE, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, development, marketing, and sale of footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessories for men, women, and children worldwide. The company has a P/E ratio of 20.4, equal to the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Nike as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, increase in stock price during the past year and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full Nike Ratings Report.
