Traders weigh buying the dip in Under Armour after earnings

Under Armour dented? 2 Trades

The "Fast Money" traders debated whether it's time to get into Under Armour after the stock fell 5 percent on Tuesday.

The athletic apparel company reported second-quarter adjusted earnings of 1 cent per share on sales of $1 billion, roughly in-line with analyst expectations.

Trader Dan Nathan said that Tuesday's price action in Under Armour is similar to when the stock fell after reporting better-than-expected results in late April.

Trader Brian Kelly said Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank is "one of the top CEOs of all time." He said, however, he would wait for the stock's valuation to fall a little before buying.

Trader Guy Adami agreed, saying that between Under Armour and Nike, he would rather own the latter because it has a "more reasonable valuation."

Kelly agreed and said that he would pick Nike in the athletic apparel sector, but that those stocks "have still had quite a run."

"I would be in a more profit taking mode in this particular sector," he said.
