It pains me to waste any real estate on this.

But re this Ackman/Nike thing. It’ll get press…well…because it will.

Reality check:

  • Activism here is near impossible
  • Getting a Nike board seat – EVER – simply won’t happen
  • Phil Knight owns 75% of the Board and they don’t like outsiders ‘advice’

In the end, this sounds like a good ‘ol boring long by Pershing.

Fortunately for Ackman, this is the one that’ll actually make him some money.

The longer-term TAIL call here is one of the best in retail, and the intermediate-term TREND call is getting better on the margin.
