Since 2013, NIKE has been included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which helps support the demand for the company’s securities from index funds. The company also pays dividends on a quarterly basis, but the forward dividend yield is only 0.8%, which is quite small even for the American market. Therefore, the company is unlikely to be a dividend; rather, it includes both good growth potential (entering new markets) and guaranteed cash flow in the form of dividends. However, looking at the current multiples, one can understand that the company is clearly overvalued by the market.
NKE looks good. Moderately growing trend. However, you should not buy right here, it is better to wait for the correction to the levels of 115 or even 105 and already with a larger one sit quietly to 160 or 150, respectively.
