It seems to be a reflection of a booming, growing emerging market that has attracted capital for the long term. Right now, we’re going through a pretty significant period of low volatility, low interest rates, and tight market spreads. NKE trades cheaper, and is more defensive in nature trying toi preserve market share it has.

The popular image of big successful traders pounding their chest and always being right is really the guy that ends up out of the market after a couple of years when a secular or cyclical trend reverses.
