14:24 EDTUAUnder Armour technical comments ahead of earnings
The stock is in a strong bullish trend near life highs ahead of earnings. If the news is strongly bullish, an extension of the long-term bullish price channel would suggest a move into the $100 area would be possible. That is, without breaking above the upper bound of the channel. Without established overhead resistance, price could run considerably further depending on the nature of the news. If the news is instead a bearish surprise, the low of the price channel at $76.49 would be the first major support. That price reflect the 10-month moving average for the shares. It would take news sufficiently bearish to break that level to turn the long-term trend to bearish.
