Nike Cleared $8.4 Billion In Quarter 1 Sales

Nike's earnings for Quarter 1 were just announced, and they cleared the $8.22 billion that Wall Street was projecting, eclipsing $8.4 billion in sales.

In comparison, Under Armour did $784 million in sales for Quarter 1 which is the equivalent to about nine days for The Swoosh.  

Furthermore, Nike spent an astounding $832 million on marketing alone in Quarter 1, which is more than UA did in sales for the quarter. For those scoring at home, that means Nike spent $9 million a week in marketing, or roughly $1.3 million PER DAY.

Just in case anybody forgot who the bully on the block was, and will likely be for the foreseeable future.
