Under Armour still expensive despite 25% decline, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva says shares of Under Armour (UAA) remain expensive even with the 25% pullback year-to-date. The Q1 decline in North America sales is likely to continue in Q2 as the addition of Kohl's (KSS) isn't enough to offset store bankruptcies and a "choppy environment," Andreeva tells investors in a research note. She points out that Under Armour's annual sales guidance assumes North America recovers in the second half of 2017, aided by new distribution and expansion in existing franchises. Andreeva believes, however, that Nike's (NKE) focus on its own stores and adidas' (ADDYY) ongoing momentum may be too tough for Under Armour to overcome. The analyst keeps a Perform rating on the shares and her estimates for 2017 and 2018 remain below consensus.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Kate McShane citing yesterday's guide-down, the shares look "too expensive for investors to jump into the name nearer-term." 2. Burlington Stores (BURL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Christian Buss saying that although the fundamentals of the company remain healthy, he sees limited upside to valuation as the multiples stay elevated despite more moderate industry growth prospects. 3. Big 5 Sporting (BGFV) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Mike Baker saying he expected Big Five's sales gains following The Sports Authority liquidation would decelerate at some point, but he notes that "trends fell off faster and to a greater extent than we suspected." 4. Ultimate Software (ULTI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Nandan Amladi calling the second quarter results "mixed" and prefers to move to the sidelines until growth returns to the mid-20s target and leverage returns to the model. 5. ResMed (RMD) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill and to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Morgan Stanley analyst Jay Sole upgraded Nike to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $68 from $56 following today's market close. The stock closed the day up 12c to $57.77. The window to buy Nike is closing as earnings and North America sales growth rates are likely troughing, Sole tells investors in a research note. The analyst pegs the stock's risk/reward at three-to-one to the upside. He believes Nike's new products like Air VaporMax and quicker speed-to-market will reverse the headwinds it has experienced over the past 18 months.
