employees, and Adidas 31,334 employees. The products sold in each corporation all
relate; Polo Ralph Lauren, apparel, home, accessories and fragrances; Nike Corporation,
footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories and services; Adidas, footwear, sports related
goods as well as other products such as bags, shirts, watches, and eyewear. All of the
companies sale a range of the same types of products, we chose to focus primarily on
each companies apparel.
The company that we have chosen to be the best investment
would be Nike Corporation. The reason we chose Nike Corporation is because by looking
at their financial ratios we can tell that their company is able to stimulate profit as well as
make use of their assets. According to the chart that we have formulated for the ratio
calculations of 2011 (See Appendix A), Polo Ralph Lauren is doing better than Nike.
However, we chose the company that we will invest in based off of what we see in
society, financial reports, and financial ratios. Take a look at Nike Corporations profit
margin ratio, and their current ratio they are shown to be a very profitable company.
Ralph Lauren is as well but Nike has shown a pattern over the brink of two years which
tells us that they are pretty consistent with being able to handle any risks that come along
with their company. We also have evidence throughout the report to support our final
analysis. You want to choose the company who is able to profit and stay away from as
many risks as possible and Nike is the best choice.
In conclusion, after looking at the success of each one of the companies that we have
analyzed we see that all of the companies seem to have some sort of financial stability.
