In general the stock tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the stock moved $2.11 between high and low, or 1.75%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.91%.
For the upcoming trading day on Monday, 3rd we expect Nike to open at $121.98, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range),to move between $119.74 and $125.54,which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$2.90 (+/-2.36%) up or down from last closing price.If Nike takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 4.73% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.
Since the stock is closer to the resistance from accumulated volume at $124.53(1.54%) than the support at $120.39(1.83%), our systems don't find the trading risk/reward intra-dayattractive and any bets should be held until the stock is closer to the support level.
Several short-term signals are positive, despite the stock being in a falling trend, we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for stock to perform well in the short-term. We have upgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Sell to a Buy candidate.
As an employee at Nike, you have access to a wealth of benefits. Some of them, such as health insurance and a 401(k) plan, are relatively standard. That said, working at a larger, publicly-traded company does afford some additional perks. One of those perks is access to the Nike employee stock purchase plan (ESPP).

Sentiment was negative in Micron stock Thursday after Goldman Sachs downgraded group peer Western Digital (WDC) to sell from neutral. Goldman also lowered WDC's price target to 31 from 43.
Micron reports Wednesday after the close. With the stock close to 50% off its high, a lot of bad news has been priced into the stock already. But MU stock is still in a downtrend, hurt by repeated signs of institutional selling that have knocked its Accumulation/Distribution Rating down to D-.
Uniform maker Cintas has been an outstanding price performer in the stock market. But the stock fell through its 21-day exponential moving average Thursday in heavy volume. The weakness came after a heavy-volume breakout from a shallow cup base on Nov. 10.
General Mills and Toro have also been showing relative strength ahead of results. GIS stock closed well off lows during Thursday's sell-off, paring a 2% loss to just 0.4%. Results are due early Tuesday.
First, identify top-rated stocks with a bullish chart. Some might be setting up in sound early-stage bases. Others might have already broken out and are getting support at their 10-week moving average for the first time. And a few might be trading tightly near highs and refusing to give up much ground. Avoid extended stocks that are too far past proper entry points.
In options trading, a call option is a bullish bet on a stock. Put options are bearish bets. One call option contract gives the holder the right to buy 100 shares of a stock at a specified price, known as the strike price.
Put options are for weak performers with bearish charts. The only difference is that an out-of-the-money strike price is just below the underlying stock price. A put option gives the holder the right to sell 100 shares of a stock at a specified price.
Once you've identified an earnings setup for a call option, check strike prices with your online trading platform, or at cboe.com. Make sure the option is liquid, with a relatively tight spread between the bid and ask.
Look for a strike price just above the underlying stock price (out of the money) and check the premium. Ideally, the premium should not exceed 4% of the underlying stock price at the time. In some cases, an in-the-money strike price is OK as long as the premium isn't too expensive.
This options trading strategy lets you capitalize on a bullish earnings report without taking too much risk. Risk is equal to the cost of the option. If the stock gaps down on earnings, the most you can lose is the amount paid for the contract.
When Nike stock traded around 107.90, an out-the-money weekly call option with a 108 strike price (Dec. 30 expiration) came with a premium of around $4.55 a share per contract, or 4.2% of the underlying stock price at the time.
For now, markets seem to be shaking off the fears that have brought shares down in the first place, but the actual concerns haven't dissipated. The war in Ukraine continues to roil Eastern Europe. Inflation is still hot, and rising fuel prices are denting consumers' finances.
Although the miner has been affected by bitcoin's stagnating price over the last quarter, the company has continued to build out its infrastructure and is enhancing its vertically integrated capacities.
Moreover, Aftahi expects the recently acquired infrastructure hardware provider ESS Metron to boost RIOT's vertical integration. He added that it could \"add materially to total revenue given its trialing nine-month revenue.\" It will provide \"priority access to infrastructure components at cheaper prices\" to Riot Blockchain, the anlayst said.
Reporting on the stock's standing is Brian Schwartz of Oppenheimer, who noted that the company's decent performance could pick up as the year progresses, due in part to digital media price increases. Moreover, the software firm is experiencing healthy demand and promising annual recurring revenue metrics.
On the upside, any athletic apparel company that has Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and Serena Williams plugging its gear has plenty of gas in the engine. And despite the internal drama, NKE stock has risen 21% in 2019.
Judging the quality of a stock by its near-term returns is a foolish enterprise, however. And even though past results are no predictor of future returns, a company with excellent long-term performance usually has great qualities that make for a sustainable competitive advantage. NKE stock has tripled since 2013. A $10,000 investment in the 1980 Nike IPO would be worth over $5.2 million today.
Finally, Nike's share buyback program is helping boost earnings per share, which are also aided as a greater percentage of Nike's revenue comes from online and direct-to-consumer efforts. Last quarter, Nike bought back $1 billion of its stock as part of a four-year, $15 billion buyback program.
Easily the biggest risk to buying NKE stock, however, is simply its valuation. Here's a classic blue-chip stock, a $140 billion consumer goods business, which, growing around 6% to 8% a year, looks to be maximizing its growth potential. Unlike Facebook (FB) or Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), making shoes doesn't effortlessly scale if you just rent some extra server space.
Those companies have net profit margins around 30%; Nike's is closer to 10%. And that's after a multi-year digital campaign that's boosted those numbers. Yet Nike stock trades for 33 times earnings. Believe it or not, that's a higher P/E ratio than either Facebook or Microsoft, which is downright silly.
When deciding whether to buy, sell, or hold a stock, investors often rely on analyst recommendations. Media reports about rating changes by these brokerage-firm-employed (or sell-side) analysts often influence a stock's price, but are they really important
Check price target & stock forecast for Nike here>>>While the ABR calls for buying Nike, it may not be wise to make an investment decision solely based on this information. Several studies have shown limited to no success of brokerage recommendations in guiding investors to pick stocks with the best price increase potential.
Are you wondering why The vested interest of brokerage firms in a stock they cover often results in a strong positive bias of their analysts in rating it. Our research shows that for every \"Strong Sell\" recommendation, brokerage firms assign five \"Strong Buy\" recommendations.
In other words, their interests aren't always aligned with retail investors, rarely indicating where the price of a stock could actually be heading. Therefore, the best use of this information could be validating your own research or an indicator that has proven to be highly successful in predicting a stock's price movement. 59ce067264
