NIke pays a dividend of 28 cents

Wall street 24/7 called NIKE a very BULLISH stock while Finance Yahoo said its right in the middle between BULLISH AND BEARISH.
NY times said NIKE is a good investment but they prices are tending to become very high and expensive for the everyday person to buy them
I think these articles helped the stock by more people buying the stock making the stock price go up but I also think NIKE will see this and lower the price of the stock by doing another split to make it more affordable.
I've lost almost 20,000 on the stock game
I should probably do more research on some stocks and invest in better stocks.
