NKE stock's solid earnings growth and impressive double-digit dividend growth demand your attention
I have been a big backer of Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) for a number of years. The company’s strong leadership, impressive growth and iconic brand were all attractive. The dividend was another motive. Management’s focus has led to years of double-digit growth. That’s why I’m kicking myself for missing one very similar stock: Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE).
SBUX stock and NKE stock have essentially mirrored each other over the past five years. I have worn the dunce cap more than once trying to pick growth stocks, value stocks and special-situation plays.
