Second-Half Top Trades: Nike Earnings Look Ahead

The "Halftime Report" traders discussed their outlook for Nike earnings next week.

Jon Najarian is bullish on Nike, but thinks one competitor could outperform it.

Josh Brown is watching the technicals closely and they're giving him reason to pause.

Jim Lebenthal argues that these earnings--and the market reaction--could be a turning point for the stock.

Steve Weiss likes the stock, but says it's too expensive.
