Image Shown: Shares of Nike Inc have been on an upward tear in 2019; however, we think the market has now gotten ahead of itself. While Nike runs a great business, the firm is unlikely to realize the kind of growth rates required to justify its lofty valuation as of this writing. Should the company underperform for even one quarter, that could lead to a sharp correction in the share price of NKE.
Nike is performing well in multiple categories, and the news that the US and China reached a “Phase One” partial trade truce further improves the company’s outlook. That said, Nike’s current market price is based on growth assumptions that are very unlikely to be realized, in our view. Should the company stumble for even one quarter, that could see a sharp correction in the share price of NKE.
