Choose your investment method. You can invest in Nike shares using the dividend method or by trading derivatives.
The dividend method is actually the classic investment option. You purchase shares with the expectation of a percentage of the company's profits in the future. Dividend investing is a strategy that gives investors two sources of potential income: a predictable income from regular dividend payments and capital appreciation over time due to the growth in the value of the shares themselves.
Buying dividend stocks can be a great solution for income-seeking investors or for those who simply want to increase their wealth by reinvesting dividends. Investing in dividend stocks is a passive income with regular payouts.
The amount of dividend payments depends on the company's internal policy and is approved at a general meeting of shareholders. Although dividend investing is widely regarded as one of the least risky investments, it is worth remembering that a company may decide not to pay a dividend temporarily, investing its profits in the development of the company.
Dividend payments on Nike stock are made quarterly (4 times a year) at a yield of about one percent. As practice shows, the yield on Nike dividends over the past 10 years has been fixed at 1 -1.7% of the share price.
Many people choose derivatives trading as an alternative to dividend investing. Trading derivatives, the so-called CFD (Contracts for Difference) is a popular method, although it is considered speculative. CFD is a way of trading price movements without the direct buying or selling of the financial instrument. The idea behind a CFD is that one party will pay the other the difference between the current and the future value of the asset. In other words, you can make money even if the price of the asset falls, but only if you are prepared for the fall in price. Trading derivatives involves your ability to analyse the market situation well and correctly predict the direction of the price.
