The trade breaks even at $53 or approximately 2.5 percent higher from its current price level. His maximal loss in the trade is the premium of $8, which is around 15.5 percent of the underlying price. Knuckman added that Nike hasn't been down at $45 since 2014. The option is deep in the money, and it is going to perform similarly like the stock, because it has a high delta.
