Shares of the athletic performance apparel company rocketed 8.69% to $20.52 by the closing bell on Wednesday, snagging a 10-month high.

The impressive move Wednesday was the largest single-day percentage gain for Under Armour stock since Feb. 13, when shares rallied 17.36% in a single session following the company's fourth-quarter earnings report.

At $20.52, the stock is at a 34% premium to the average analyst price target of $15.29, according to FactSet data.

While the broader stock market has struggled to stay in the green for 2018 so far, Under Armour has not. Shares are up 42% year to date, up 8.63% in the last 12 months and up 10.56% in the last five trading sessions.

While Wednesday proved strong for Under Armour, Thursday may not bring the same momentum. Shares were lower 0.83% in premarket action on Thursday.
