Trade of the Day: NIKE, Inc. (NKE)

Ken Trester

To receive further updates on this NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) trade as well as an alert when it’s time to take profits, sign up for a risk-free trial of Power Options Weekly today.

The S&P 500 Volatility Index (VIX) is now back below the 13.50 level, and that tells me that the market is not in any danger of a major decline. It attempted to get above its 200-day moving average over the past two weeks, but it was not able to hold there, which is a bullish sign.

Additionally, the U.S. dollar index is now bumping up against resistance at the 94 level, which I identified last week as a potential pivot point. The dollar’s advance will likely stall at this point or even move lower, which may hurt the small-caps while benefitting the larger multi-national corporations.

InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

On the bearish side, we are getting into the summer months, which are usually dull with light action and a slightly downward bias. The ratio of advancing issues to declining issues is also not as strong as I would like to see, as most of the outperformance is coming from the small-caps and the financials.

However, one stock that has really performed well this year and should continue to move higher is NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE).

Buy to open the NIKE, Inc. (NKE) Jul 75 Calls (NKE180720C00075000) at $1.35 or lower.

    Before Investing In Aptiv PLC (NYSE:APTV), Consider This

    Two important questions to ask before you buy Aptiv PLC (NYSE:APTV) is, how it makes money and how it spends its cash. Free cash flow (FCF) is the amount of cash Aptiv has left after it pays off its expenses, including its net capital expenditures, which is what the company needs to spend each year to maintain or grow its business operations. The two ways to assess whether Aptiv's FCF is sufficient, is to compare the FCF yield to the market index yield, as well as determine whether the top-line operating cash flows will continue to grow.

    'Father of Reaganomics' says 'get out of the market' — bond and stock market — 'and put your money in cash'

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)is up 19.4% since that time, breaking above a psychologically significant at 26,000 level on Friday, while the S&P 500 index (SPX) has advanced 19.5%, the Nasdaq Composite Index (COMP) has risen 22.4% and the small-capitalization focused Russell 2000 index has returned more than 25%, according to FactSet data. Much of that gain has been underpinned by a Fed that has signaled that it is likely to slow a reduction of its $4 trillion balance sheet as soon as this year and a willingness to wait before increasing borrowing costs further. Both of those plans had been cited as a source of friction for markets.

    Here's Why Karyopharm Therapeutics Is Getting Hammered Today

    Shares of Karyopharm Therapeutics (NASDAQ: KPTI), a precommercial biopharmaceutical company, are plummeting in response to briefing documents released by the Food and Drug Administration ahead of an advisory committee meeting. Karyopharm Therapeutics convinced the FDA to grant a priority review for selinexor, but the agency insisted on an advisory committee meeting to discuss the application with independent experts in a public setting first. During the 123-patient Storm study, 25.4% of patients showed a response to treatment with selinexor plus chemo, which isn't a whole lot better than you'd expect from this group when treated with the same dose of chemo on its own.
