Seymour believes the athleisure and the comfort dynamic is going to continue to be strong in the second half of 2020 as it was in the first half. He added that Nike’s chart looks like NASDAQ-100 as it traded 23% higher in 26 trading sessions. He expects to see earnings revisions and he thinks that the story remains very resilient.
