What Under Armour's Earnings Mean for Mutual Fund Investors (UA)

Shauna O'Brien Feb 05, 2015

After the closing bell on Wednesday, Under Armour (UA) released its fourth quarter financial results. Here’s what the results mean for mutual fund investors.

Inside UA’s Results


The company reported net income of $88 million, or 40 cents per share, up from $64 million, or 30 cents per share, last year. Analysts expected to see EPS of 39 cents per share.

Revenue increased 31% to $895 million, beating estimates of $848.96 billion.

The company announced that it has agreed to acquire the popular fitness app MyFitnessPal for $475 million.

Aggressive Brand for Aggressive Investors

The company has been very aggressive with its branding as it attempts to gain market share from Nike (NKE). So far in 2015, UA has agreed to acquire two fitness apps including Endomondo and MyFitnessPal. These acquisitions will grow UA’s digital footprint, as its most recent acquisition of MyFitnessPal will allow the company to obtain 100 million users of fitness data.

While the company is aggressive with its branding, it is also very expensive – trading at 60x 2015 earnings estimates. This stock is ideal for the most aggressive of investors who are able to handle that the share can be a bit violate at times.
