Motley Fool Analyst Goes with Nike Against Under Armour

Share the News

Motley Fool contributor Rick Munarriz is going with Nike in its battle with Under Armour, citing the bigger brand’s valuation and “reasonable 1.4 percent dividend.”

He observes:

“Under Armour trades at a steep 38 times this year’s projected earnings and a still beefy 31 times next year’s bottom-line estimate. Nike, on the other hand, can be had for just 18 times this fiscal year’s profitability and a mere 15 times next year’s target.

Under Armour deserves its premium. The company is earlier in its growth cycle, and it shows: It’s growing its revenue by 33% this year and 23% come 2012. Nike, on the other hand, is growing at less than half that rate.”
