High flying share of Under Armour (NYSE: UA) were downgraded by Sterne Agee from Buy Neutral, but announced a 2017 price target of $170.
Analyst Sam Poser remains “very bullish on the long-term outlook for UA due to the ongoing momentum of all apparel categories, progress in athletic footwear, and the pending material acceleration of international growth.”
