Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Under Armour as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including premium valuation, weak operating cash flow and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 13.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 28.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • UNDER ARMOUR INC has improved earnings per share by 9.8% 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. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, UNDER ARMOUR INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.95 versus $0.75 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.04 versus $0.95).
  • The gross profit margin for UNDER ARMOUR INC is rather high; currently it is at 50.93%. 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 8.34% trails the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$133.54 million or 397.70% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
