For today’s bulletin, we take a look at one of our SELL-rated stocks, UnderArmour (UA). Under Armour, Inc. is involved in the development, marketing and distribution of branded performance apparel, footwear and accessories for men, women and youth.

The company reported earnings yesterday and the market did not like what it heard. Shares tumbled almost 10% in pre-market trading after the results showed a net loss of $12.3 million–$0.03/share. The sell off occurred despite the fact that the company beat expectations slightly for the quarter. The company also announced a restructuring plan that will include @280 job cuts and restructuring charges of @ $110-130 million.
The company lowered expectations– slightly– moving forward. They now believe that net revenues will grow 9 to 11 percent versus the previous expectation of 11 to 12 percent growth Gross margin, on a reported basis, is expected to be down approximately 160 basis points compared to 46.4% in 2016 as benefits from product costs and sales mix are offset by impacts from the restructuring plan, changes in foreign currency and increased efforts to manage inventory. Excluding the impact of the restructuring, adjusted gross margin is expected to be down at least 120 basis points compared to 46.4% in 2016.
Despite the bad news, UA CEO Kevin Plank tried to put a positive spin on the results by noting that
our second quarter performance validates the strength of our multiple growth levers to deliver solid results in today’s dynamic global environment. More than doubling our business over the last three years has required significant investments and resources to build our brand. We are utilizing 2017 to ensure that operations across our diverse portfolio of sport categories, distribution channels and geographies are optimized as we are building a stronger, faster and smarter company.
