Many investors, including Paul Tudor Jones or Stan Druckenmiller, have been saying before the Q4 market crash that the stock market is overvalued due to a low interest rate environment that leads to companies swapping their equity for debt and focusing mostly on short-term performance such as beating the quarterly earnings estimates. In the first […]

Shares of Nike (NYSE:NKE) have been under plenty of pressure over the past few weeks. Intensifying trade talks with China aren't helping, as Nike stock hits its lowest levels since January. Not all sports stocks are created equal though, as Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) continues to do just fine. Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) is doing okay, but not great, while Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) is tanking.Source: rodrigofranca via FlickrThis year's NBA Finals are interesting, given how many NBA pros have top shoe deals. Over the past few years, we've seen the Golden State Warriors face off with the Cleveland Cavaliers. That featured a number of Nike athletes, including Kevin Durant (the last two years), LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, among others. Under Armour, notably, had Stephen Curry on its side.But this year matchup between Golden State and the Toronto Raptors features Durant with Nike, Curry with Under Armour and Kawhi Leonard with New Balance. It's a diversified bunch, although it doesn't help Nike that its star (Durant) has been injured for the first two games.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Sports Stocks to WatchWith game three of the NBA Finals coming up on Wednesday, I want to see if Nike stock specifically can shake its recent stigma. Not many were expecting the Raptors to put up a big fight against Golden State. But through two games, the series is pretty tight so far.That's important, because the longer this series goes, the more exposure Nike can get. In June 2015, Nike signed an eight-year apparel deal with the NBA. Further, the apparel maker just dropped a re-release of its Air Jordan 4 shoe, in its Raptor colorway. The company is doing exactly what it should do to keep attention flowing to its brand. * 10 Heavily Shorted Stocks to Sell -- Because the Bears Are Right The question is, will it work?Based on the last few earnings reports, Nike is doing well. But trade-war worries continue to weigh on the stock. If we can get some more-than-expected Nike-specific focus during the Finals, that may help with short-term sentiment. That's assuming the stock market can find its footing -- no pun intended -- and slow its recent selloff.However, sports stocks and Nike stock specifically will likely come under pressure should trade-war talk intensify. A global slowdown doesn't do Nike any good, nor does a worsening trade war.So while investors will have one eye on the NBA Finals, they'll also be watching trade-war headlines to see how they impact sports stocks going forward. Trading Nike Stock Click to EnlargeBasketball is a huge driver for Nike and the league doesn't get any more attention than when it's playoffs time. So far though, that's not translating to a higher stock price. Nike stock is down 14% from its highs in mid-April.Shares were able to rally about 1% on Monday in the face of another broad-market decline. Perhaps it's a sign that the NBA Finals can give it a boost. It's also bouncing off that $77 area, a key fourth-quarter resistance level that, once breached, propelled NKE stock higher in January.It would be discouraging to see Nike lose this mark now. If it does, watch $75, the 61.8% retracement for the one-year range to give it another bounce. Below there and I wonder if investors can get lucky enough to nab a position in NKE for $70-ish. That would be a great long-term opportunity. * 7 Retail Stocks Winning in 2019 and Beyond On the upside, say current levels hold. We first need to see Nike stock recapture the 50% retracement at $78. From there, a rally back to the $80 to $81 area can ensue. Particularly if trade headlines relent for a few sessions and investors can focus on Nike's fundamentals and the Finals.However, $80 to $81 is a big level. There it has the 200-day moving average, channel resistance, the 38.2% retracement and the downtrending 20-day moving average.That's a mouthful of numbers, but for simplicity sake, just know it could easily act as resistance. At least on Nike stock's first test. Should it push through though, it could give shares -- and sports stocks in general -- a serious spark.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

You don't have to be an athlete to recognize that Nike (NYSE:NKE) is one of America's top brands. Ordinarily, such a lofty distinction will put you in a great position in the markets. Unfortunately, two critical headwinds threaten to derail the party. NKE stock closed down almost 3% yesterday.Source: Kristian Olsen Via UnsplashFirst, we have competitive jitters clouding the overall athletic-apparel industry. Segment retailer Foot Locker (NYSE:FL), which up until mid-April had a solid showing in 2019 absorbed a nasty tumble. After releasing results for the first quarter that missed both earnings and revenue expectations, FL stock tanked 16%.Of course, Foot Locker is highly dependent on Nike, with the iconic shoemaker accounting for roughly two-thirds of sales. In turn, Nike is shifting toward online sales and direct retail channels, which obviously hurts FL stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, the broader takeaway is that the American consumer is cutting back on discretionary spending. After all, Foot Locker had a strong showing for Q4, including much better-than-expected same-store sales. Therefore, the curbing of spending habits will invariably hit NKE stock.But the bigger headwind impacting Nike stock and the entire athletic-apparel segment is the bitter U.S.-China trade war. Nike's management team, along with their rival counterpart Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) and other shoe retailers, urged President Trump to back down. * 7 Utility Stocks to Trust for Retirement The reason of course is obvious. If you have a slowdown in sales at home, China's emergent economy and billion-plus consumer base represents an easy solution. But with Trump's fierce rhetoric causing an equally outraged response, the Chinese are in no mood to play ball.Although I like NKE stock based on its fiscal stability and segment domination, geopolitics must be respected. Protracted Trade Dispute Threatens Nike StockHere's the thing: if the world's top two economies can settle their differences now, we're back to the natural order. Nike stock jumps on powerful Chinese demand, and a stabilizing North American base.But what's the likelihood of that scenario? Given recent political and international headlines, I believe the current signs bode poorly for NKE stock.Over the past weekend, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe played the charm offensive toward President Trump. The reason? To get Trump to listen to reason regarding the White House's "shotgun" tariffs. Specifically, the President threatens to penalize both Japan and the European Union unless they renegotiate supposedly unfavorable trade deals.Japanese auto giant Toyota (NYSE:TM) responded incredulously, citing their massive investments toward American infrastructures and jobs. In my opinion, they're right to be outraged. A true capitalist businessman would understand that competition breeds superior offerings for consumers.Besides, Detroit has had at least four decades to improve their craft. It's not Toyota's fault that they stink.But the bigger takeaway as it relates to NKE stock is Trump's mentality. Apparently, he has zero qualms about hurting regions that are net accretive to U.S. economic interests. How much more will he aggressively attack China, which is very much our ideological adversary?Admittedly, it's not all bad news for Nike stock. The underlying company is gaining ground in China. Moreover, management views the Asian juggernaut as a largely untapped opportunity. Plus, the average Chinese consumer loves American brands.However, that demand faces threats because Nike doesn't have a monopoly in athletic fashion. Principal rival Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY) has also gained significant momentum with Chinese millennials, particularly with its Yeezy brand. * 5 Safe Stocks to Buy This Summer Clearly, this reignited conflict is coming at the worst possible time for Nike stock. Technical Posture for NKE Stock also a Bad OmenI realize that even among InvestorPlace contributors, a debate rages between the technical and fundamental approaches. Granted, some of the assertions from technical analysts are a bit on the wonky side.But I also think real value exists when both the fundamentals and technicals confirm the same narrative. Fundamentally, the U.S. consumer market has notably weakened, sending FL stock into the dumpster. However, hybrid producer/retailers like NKE don't have a Chinese emergency valve anymore. That obviously hurts the case for Nike stock.And its technical chart gives you all the information you need to know. After hitting a peak this year in the second half of April, Nike stock is conspicuously pensive. It's roughly the same situation for American athletic-apparel makers.But the obvious winner in this mix is the decidedly not American Adidas. ADDYY shares have soared 38% year-to-date. Arguably, Adidas has better reach with Chinese consumers. On the other hand, Nike is losing its grip with both American and Chinese customers. Combined, these are good reasons to stay cautious on NKE stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

After a long holiday weekend watching auto racing, hosting and attending barbecues, and enjoying the late spring weather, investors regroup today to a stock market that’s played defense for weeks and feels exhausted as summer begins. Overseas events—mainly China and Brexit—arguably represent a stiff headwind for Wall Street, with British Prime Minister Theresa May’s resignation announcement only the most recent gust as a pro-Brexit party made election gains in Britain. On the China front, President Trump wrapped up a visit to Japan Tuesday saying he’s not ready to make a deal with Beijing, but thinks one eventually will come together.
