Under Armour 'fundamentals intact,' says SunTrust
After Under Armour cut its long-term operating income guidance, SunTrust analyst Pamela Quintiliano says that the reduced guidance reflects increased investments and a negative mix shift to footwear and international. However, the analyst thinks that the company's fundamentals remain intact. Moreover, she thinks that the company will benefit from colder weather this winter than in winter 2015, as well as its entrance into Kohl's (KSS) and product innovations. She cut her price target to $40 from $55 but keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
