Under Armour (UA) Stock Up, Guggenheim Initiates Coverage - TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Under Armour (UA) - Get Report were higher in late morning trading on Friday as Guggenheim started covering the stock with a "buy" rating earlier today, the Fly reports.

The firm has a $50 price target on shares of the Baltimore-based athletic apparel maker.

Guggenheim said it expects the strong activewear and athletics category to continue to grow, according to the Fly.

Growth in the sector warrants Under Armour shares trading at a premium multiple, the firm added.
