Analysis: Sit out the Nike World Cup trade

  • Canaccord Genuity warns that buying shares of Nike (NKE) in anticipation of a World Cup rally is a risky proposition.
  • Over the last six World Cups, Nike has typically peaked in the months ahead of the global event before settling back during the tournament.
  • Volatility in Nike trading during the soccer-frenzied months has also been sky-high.
  • Analyst Camilo Lyon recommends investors look for a buying opportunity well-after the FIFA World Cup Trophy has been lifted.
