Things We Love: Sports and Pets

28 September 2015 in Trading Ideas

Americans have two big passions: the games we play and the pets that keep us company.

Big-time sporting events continue to draw record TV ratings, while the fast rise of cult-exercise equipment companies like LifeCycle show we want to feel that burn, too. Even when we’re not sweating, we’re often dressing like we’re ready for our next yoga or CrossFit class. Consumers spent $2 billion more on apparel, footwear and accessories in 2014 than the prior year, largely due to increased sales of activewear.

Meanwhile, spending on our pets is at an all-time high: American consumers will spend more than $60 billion on their pets this year—triple the amount of just 20 years ago.

Both of these things we love are captured in our World of Sports and Pet Passion motifs, which you can trade commission free today through Friday, October 2 as part of our Motif of the Week promotion.
