Traders Talk Nike Ahead of Earnings ATB

"Nike has retained pricing power"

The "Halftime Report" traders discuss what to expect from Nike ahead of its earnings report today after the bell.

Jon Najarian is a buyer. He needs a Hail Mary for his Halftime Portfolio, and he thinks Nike--along with Foot Locker--may just be the ticket.

Stephanie Link comments on the ripple effect in the athletic space. If Nike beats, it will also boost Under Armour and Foot Locker.

Josh Brown is bullish on the athletic space, but is looking at Under Armour over Nike.
