Again, Kelly disagreed. He was a buyer of Cliffs Natural Resources CLF and the Market Vectors Coal ETF KOL.
Nike (NKE) beat on top- and bottom-line expectations. The company improved margins and reported higher future orders. Sam Poser, senior research analyst at Sterne Agee, said Nike is making "very good headway in China." He added the company should be able to grow earnings per share in the mid-teens in terms of percentage despite gross margins pressure from emerging market currency fluctuations. Overall, he called the business very strong with solid demand.
Jeffry Rosenthal, president and CEO of Hibbett Sports (HIBB), was a guest on the show. His company sells sports gear for teams, not individuals. He said the company is focused on opening and operating its stores in small towns and small markets, where 75% of its stores are already located. The company could use an e-commerce overhaul but Rosenthal, for now, is focused on growing the number of physical locations.

He added the stock is $20 per share off its recent high. Kelly said on Thursday he bought more FireEye (FEYE), which is off some 16% since he mentioned it a few weeks ago.
