We call this discussion "the jocks versus the couch potatoes." Shares of Nike (NKE) and other jock-driven stocks are up 10% and more this year. Meanwhile, video game driven nerd-driven stocks, if you will, are up even more. For example, Gamestop (GME) is up 30% this year. Are you betting with the jocks or the couch potatoes?
Guy Adami says NutriSystems (NTRI) is his play on couch potatoes. He thinks NTRI could hit $80.
Eric Bolling put together a 3-pronged couch potato play: Gamestop (GME), Echostar (DISH) and PepsiCo (PEP).
Jeff Macke likes Nintendo’s Wii (NTDOY) because they’re capitalizing on couch potatoes who wish they were jocks. He likes the Wii much more than Sony’s (SNE) PS3 or Microsoft’s (MSFT) Xbox.
Pete Najarian likes Under Armour (UA), Nike (NKE) and Callaway (ELY) because not everybody is a couch potato. He adds the margins on these stocks are phenomenal.
