Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Under Armour Inc A as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 15.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 30.1%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • UNDER ARMOUR INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, UNDER ARMOUR INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.05 versus $0.95 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.32 versus $1.05).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry. The net income increased by 63.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $11.73 million to $19.18 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to -$168.28 million or 4.67% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, UNDER ARMOUR INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -47.17%.
  • 48.93% is the gross profit margin for UNDER ARMOUR INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of UA's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 1.83% trails the industry average.
