Under Armour, Inc. develops, markets, and distributes performance apparel, footwear, and accessories for men, women, and youth worldwide.

Shares are up 37.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Under Armour as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock itself is trading at a premium valuation.

On the positive front, Liz Claiborne Inc ( LIZ), Spartech Corporation ( SEH), Mannatech Inc ( MTEX), and China Xiniya Fashion ( XNY) were all gainers within the consumer non-durables industry with Procter & Gamble ( PG) being today's featured consumer non-durables industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
