Athletic products provider Nike Inc. may soon see more market action as the World Cup in Brazil gets underway. In previous instalments of the World Cup dating back to 1990, Nike stock has typically topped out in the spring, sold off through the tournament, and bottomed out in the fall before recovering.

The stock has been a winner in the recent past, with a one-year return of nearly 20 per cent in the past year, and 160 per cent in the past five years. Should investors consider playing the expected volatility in the stock this World Cup year?
