As Finish Line, the U.S. athletic-shoe chain, becomes British, buying shares in its expansion-minded acquirer looks like a slam dunk. Bulls on JD Sports Fashion (ticker:ticker::JD.UK) praise its $558 million purchase of Finish Line, announced last month. “Not every shareholder will be thrilled about the notion of taking on the U.S., but it is a key move in JD’s desire to be a global player, and on a decent multiple for such a large footprint, it strikes us as eminently sensible,” say analysts at brokerage Peel Hunt in a recent note.

The retailer, which has been criticised for its disclosure, corporate governance and past treatment of workers, is trying to revive sales and profit growth with smarter stores that sell more premium products from the likes of Nike and Adidas. The group, founded and run by Mike Ashley, wants to become the "Selfridges of sport", emulating the status of the department store on Oxford Street in London.
