Why The Stock Is Spiking

As is almost always the case, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to alert us to the gains on UAA. As soon as we received the alert, the CNA Finance team started working to see why the stock was making a run for the top. It didn’t take long to find the reason for the gains. Ultimately, the spike is being caused by a rumor.

At the moment, if you search for Under Armour on your favorite social network, chances are that you will find the rumor too. At the moment, there’s chatter surfacing that the company may be acquired. Now, keep in mind that the rumor is incredibly vague. No one is suggesting who the buyer might be nor at what price.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead
