Earnings: Under Armour (UAA) stock jumps on upbeat Q4 results

Sports apparel giant Under Armour (UAA) released its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2018 on Feb. 12, before the opening bell. For the reporting period, revenue inched up 2% to $1.4 billion, generating net income of $4 million or $0.01 a share. Adjusted net income was $42 million or $0.09 per share.

Under Armour stock climbed more than 5% in pre-market trade after earnings beat Street estimates.

Over the last few weeks, analysts have maintained their estimates for the sports apparel retailer, with revenues projected to gain modestly year-over-year to $1.38 billion. The company, which recorded nil profit in the prior-year quarter, was expected to earn $0.04 per share this time.
