We all know the Nike brand, founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports, and changing its name to Nike in 1971.

Security:   NKE
Position:   Accumulate

Nike, Inc. is an American multinational corporation engaged in the design, development and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories and services. The company is an inspiration and innovation for every athlete in the world.

Figure 1. Monthly Chart.

The chart in Figure 1 is a monthly chart and shows how the share price moved from a low of $0.36 in 1989 to a high of $68.83 by December 2015. The year 2016 has not been kind to the share price, which has fallen to its present price of $49.96. The Elliott wave count is suggesting that the share is in a WAVE IV correction with the RSI 14 and Stochastic 14 both suggesting that a buy signal will be given in the near future.

Figure 2. Weekly Chart.

The chart in Figure 2 is a weekly chart confirming a buy signal in the near future. Both indicators have given buy signals, suggesting that the share price should start moving up. Elliott wave count is suggesting that the share price is in a WAVE A, but this count could be the WAVE IV, with a WAVE V to follow. Either way, the share price should start rising.

Figure 3. Daily Chart.

The chart in Figure 3 is a daily chart with an Elliott wave count suggesting that a WAVE C has been completed and that the share price should start moving up. Both indicators shown on the chart have given buy signals. Investors who are more cautious could wait for the price to move above the upper JM Internal Band. The JM Internal Band is a 15-period simple moving average offset by 2% positive and 2% negative. A move above the upper band suggests a buy and below the lower band a sell as shown on the chart.

Figure 4. Daily Omnitrader Chart.

The chart in Figure 4 is an Omnitrader chart that brought a buy of the share to my attention. Note the buy signal on the Vote line triggered by the RSI 14 period strategy shown in green below the Vote line.

Nike has been placed on my watch list as a possible buy. One could wait to see how things shake out following the Presidential election before buying, however, this a share that could move up strongly in the near term.
