Trifecta Stocks and Breakout Stocks Portfolio Manager Bryan Ashenberg highlights reports that Nike is going to produce sneakers with power laces in 2015 -- the kind that were showcased on Marty McFly's sneakers in Back To The Future II (which took place in 2015). The athletic footwear and apparel space has been notably strong of late and Ashenberg sees Trifecta Stocks holding Foot Locker and Breakout Stocks holding Under Armour as additional ways to profit from this trend.
