I think it's a great time for index investing. For most of the past few years, the indexes have been overpriced because they were driven by a few overpriced stocks, such as the dow including NKE and CRM when they were trading at PEs of about 50 and 150. But now that everything is down, it's a good time to buy those.
I'd been good at individual stock picking and that is a tad harder now since I've had individual good solid companies randomly drop 5% or 7% in 2 days out of nowhere in this market.
Does ANF sell NKE? Cuz I'm bearish on THE SWOOSH! 10 97 puts weeklies
Spread your money to different parts of the economy
Select companies with a history of >5% dividend increases annually.
Avoid companies with dividend over 3%. They have insufficient growth.
Here are *some* good choices: : HD/LOW, COST/TGT, JNJ, NKE, MCD/SBUX, MSFT/AAPL, INTC.
These are leading companies that pay dividends *but also have growth*. The magic of dividend investing is that *growing companies increase their dividends over time*, and that's what makes dividend stocks worthwhile. Some people here recommend VZ or MO. Personally, I wouldn't own either. VZ's dividend is stagnant and the company has almost no prospect for growth. I don't know about MO's dividend, but tobacco has become very risky, I would avoid it.
Always be on the search for new companies that are steadily raising dividends, and be willing to shift from stagnant older companies to faster growing newer companies. REmember the magic of dividend investing isn't in the amount of the dividend today, but instead it's in how much the dividend grows over time!
i'm not sure they want it to deflate, i think they want oil up at $200 a barrel, less cars on the road, less planes in the sky, less ships on the sea, i should probably get long $NKE cause the plebs will have to walk everywhere it seems
Pretty sure they are getting sued by NKE
"Strategy is far more important than what stock you pick. "
Yep. You would never have known ahead of time that MSFT would come through this downturn better than LMND. And I mean who would have guessed that NKE was less "overvalued" than SHOP, or JNJ would come out better than TDOC!!! No way to have predicted any of that.
Presuming you know what you are doing in terms of execution and won't just blindly buy stocks when they are trading with a high P/E, here are some ideas.
Positions in brackets should be smaller than your primary holding. I personally would be focused in TSLA, oil, computing, SAAS, and internet retail for alpha with other positions for diversification.
TSLA (F) (LCID) (RIVN)
AMZN (BABA) AAPL MSFT GOOG (FB) NVDA (AMD) (TSM)
ADBE ABNB DIS SPOT TSP (EMBK)
COST DLTR TGT WMT HD (LOW) CVS WBA
BA LMT NOC RTX
LUV AAL DAL UAL
JPM (GS) (BAC)
BRK.B AXP MA (V) PYPL
GIS (K) (KHC) MCD SBUX KO PG NKE (LEVI) (RL)
(CAT) (HON) (MMM) DE GE
Agree with and ken SPOT and WBD. ALSO, AMZN, BA, and NKE
Griselda Marcos son just won the Philippine election…. So if he’s anything like his mom with the shoes; $NKE & $LMVH moon calls
Best and worst performing Dow Jones stocks so far today

I have brokerage accts in both my std and roth IRA. Some stocks I hold for a long time (NKE, BAC). Others I trade. Investing in stocks in your Roth is a great idea. All your gains are tax free!
But like all trading you have to understand how to manage risk and have the balls to take a loss and move on sometimes. You won't be invincible. It's an odds game.
>Then why is TWTR still trading below $50? Since $54.20 is the agreed upon buyout price per share, it would be easy profit to buy now and sell to Musk when the buyout happens.
Not that simple to do in a second, it takes time.
Plus, the deal has already been finalized, it's just gonna get handed over nke.
>If you're so certain about this deal, sell your house and take out as many loans as you can, buy every single share you can find at $49.XX and then once the deal goes through you'll earn a profit of $4.XX per share. Easy, right?
That isn't how the stock market works lmao, otherwise every single major institution in the stock market would buy up twitter like crazy.
The deal has literally been struck, the news has already confirmed this, twitter has already confirmed this, Elon has already confirmed this.
U so deep in denial lmao.
Yeah, I'd let nke go too, as well as SQ and AMZN. I would add to ADBE and to a lesser extent TSLA.
I sold LULU but still have NKE and ADDYY. They are down, but eventually this period will end and they will recover.

My least amount of conviction is NKE right, may replace it soon with a healthcare or some other dividend stock. In the growth/spec arena, I am researching space and genomics stocks. And ABNB is also high on my watchlist.
140 ABNB puts got FUCKED yesterday and we’re back in business now 116 NKE puts down over 50% yesterday now up 60%
Options are magic
The reason I said hard to find for me is just to restrict this to myself. As in, for the universe of stocks that I look at, which tends to be TMT (tech, media, telecom) and consumer discretionary (TSLA, NKE, BBY, etc) l, I’m starting to run out of good ideas. That doesn’t mean there aren’t good shorts, just not many that I can see.
So yea, I’m starting to turn more bullish. For reference, I 30% shorts, 40% long, 30% cash at beginning of year (obviously I wish I was more short… but I’m not a perfect investor).
Now I’m 5% short, 50% long, 20% bonds, 25% cash. I wish I could find more shorts though.
Probably by having a portfolio of high quality companies that generally meet of beat the SP500: AVGO, EW, HD, WM, COST, NKE, UNP, etc.

According to literally any website including investopedia its as I stated. Investopedia goes on to state it "typically describes a condition when securities fall 20% or more from their highs"
key word. Typically.
FYI 80%+ of securities are well over 20% from their highs. Most are more than 50%

The list is very very long. Imagine looking at the sp500 and thinking it alone speaks for the market....
TJX's business is worth 4% more today, if you didn't hear. NKE too!
He made millions on nke call
remember that time NKE went up 5% in a day on some brief positive analyst remarks, even though half their supply chain is probably fucked from china shutdowns, all while other retailers are getting downgraded for supply chain mismanagement and expected margin compression?
Apparel(-ntly), NKE is recession proof.
anyone know why is $NKE up 5% today? don't see any related news..
Anyone in NKE bullish call flow all week and it just broke out. Knew I should have gotten in
I don't know what's popular but I've been buying COF, SBUX, GOOG, ZG, BLK, JPM, WMT, TSLA, SPACE, DIS, SQ, V, aapl, nke, dfs, Sony, fb, mcd, brk, crsp, edit, bac, zm, kr, wen, Wynn, ua, uber, vz
You didn't hear that AMZN and NKE both wanted to buy it !? /s
I disagree, AMD has a 1 year forward PE that's lower than NKE and MCD's for example. Given their crazy growth estimates I would say now is definitely a good time to buy. The news about Neon and Palladium shortages are way overblown.
Google, Dd, msft, wmt, jpm, cop, nee, hii, cvs, well, nke
That'll get you one stock in each sector. Buy either equal $ in each or get fancy and calculate their relative market caps to come up with percentage in each or use the sector weightings of the s&p
Not to brag but I tripled my 401k contribution in mid-March 2020 and left it there through June. That allowed me to get HBI at $10, NKE at 81, PTON at $23 (I sold at $32 lol), LVGO at $25, NEE at $56, BRK.B at $185, F at $5, CMG at $448, LULU at $172, MKL at $722, DIS at $101, more NKE at $85, TRUP at $30, DAL at $23, GMED at $58, COST at $311. Early in my investing years, I would panic buy or sell. Now, I buy when I see dips and pullbacks and corrections. I've added to existing positions over 100 times since November 2021 when NASDAQ started its pullback and I'll keep adding. Buy and hold always wins if you can be disciplined.
$SPY $GOOGL $AMZN $MSFT $TSLA $NVDA $MELI $TTD $AXON $ABNB $BRKB $COST $NKE $BTC $ETH would be my picks for the long term
Pooped at work today but had my headphones in so I had no idea how loud I was being 😣
Gotta buy new shoes now, calls on $NKE
1st and third paragraph pretty much summed up this year's paper trading competition for me.
Bet 20 percent of my portfolio into oil early on. Went and found a random oil stock out on the market and have ridden it to up 100 percent.
Now my portfolio is about 20 percent oil. 20 percent banking. 20 percent berk b.
The rest split up between commodities nke fdx and mos
But definitely slend a ton of time checking my portfolio since I can't do anything after hours and school hours take up literally every hour the market is open
I've been slowly adjusting my portfolio and posting on here until I get it right.
I'm 28 years old and contribute $6k every year to my Roth IRA which holds VT.

seriously after NKE killed it i added more LULU boomer shares
I'm 28 years old and contribute $6k every year to my Roth IRA which holds VT. I made some bad moves during the pandemic hype with a lot of tech ETFS and stocks (mostly ARK and SPCE) and after a few hard lessons I'm learning more about the market.I'll likely sell my ARK and SPCE stocks at a loss which makes up 30% of my portfolio.
I've started doing more research and I'm working on a new diverse portfolio in Robinhood. Hoping to get some feedback on my new portfolio and maybe some thoughts on selling at a loss.

Turns out NKE earnings were the tell for LULU
I thought it was too obvious so I didn’t pull the trigger
I agree. I wasnt sure who the potential buyers would be but some have speculated that Adiddas/NKE or JD would be good possible candidates
I own NKE & will continue slowly DCAing purely because it’s my favorite athletic brand
NKE earnings makes me optimistic for next week
That said they might still be considered overpriced
I just got iv crush by nke even though i end up 100%
Imagine buying NKE at open and being down 4%
nke signaling a bit of a move down market wide imo.
I do enjoy cnbc stories like "NKE trimmed sales declines and analysts think it's very bullish"
up and to the right boys
Cashed out 10k on NKE 6/17 $130 calls. Hell of a play. I wasn’t expecting more than 10-20% out of it, but ended up getting more than double that. Next play is looking to be either Adobe or Tencent Calls! Thoughts?
I'm gambling on NKE calls
I bought NKE and BABA calls. I didn’t buy enough NKE and BABA calls
it tends to do that after earnings, it got me the same way, the stock may bounce back but options might be flat to down, for me, I'll only play NKE earnings if they report in the morning, same with M, just something I noticed with retail stocks, and only if they report close to opening bell
Why’s NKE dying off… I can’t win out here
NKE the first indicator of how this earnings season is going to play out. Get your calls while they're cheap boys!
Got March 22 150 Nke call hopefully market pumps
So will NKE call’s prices be readjusted at market open to reflect after hours prices?
At first i read “what are your mess tomorrow “ 😂😂😂😂 Played NKE ER made quick bucks and tomorrow not sure yet, sitting on all cash at close today
NKE put credit spreads max profit 😎
max profit - $22 🥵
love being theta gang and poor
NKE weekly calls may yet be saved if only for the fact that there are four days left in the week.
I still have no regrets waiting until the morning after to scoop some up.
sold iron condors on NKE and collected $520 in premium. need it to be between 125 and 135 by april 14
Yall should thank me, Ive been pumping $NKE since 2002. I have gone through atleast 12 pairs of Air Force 1s in the past 20 years.
Inversing the top comments in the earnings thread works again. NKE calls lookin good
Can’t believe my NKE calls at open have a high chance of paying out. Threw 27.5k and will be cashing out at open. Feels good to initially inverse my gut feeling and win!
Move tomorrow: Sell NKE calls at open
NKE is a sign I should double down on CROX?
This is good news if you are still bagholding NKE at 170.
They found the secret to prevent their stocks from tanking.
Just don't mention any guidance in the earnings report like NKE.
Grats and fuck you to nke holders
Jacked to the tits in NKE calls… made all my cash back from this retardedness if it holds
NKE said fuck your inflation and fuck your recession, we selling shoes up in here
looks like NKE dodged the scythe
Looks like NKE had revenue and eps beat and trading higher afterhours. Will be curious to hear the actual call.
- EPS: $0.87 vs $0.72 Estimate
- Revenue: 10.9 bln vs $10.61 bln Estimate
Damn bro, Najarian’s NKE calls printing
I stepped in dog 💩. I'm just going to throw my sneakers away rather than deal with it. The replacements won't be made by NKE. This is not investment advice.
Got a 140 for nke, couldn’t resist
the setup for NKE seems terrible given their reliance on foreign sales, so calls it is.
