Josh here – Well, how’s this for good timing? Some prescient advisors were loading up on Under Armor last week ahead of this weekend’s finish to the Masters golf tournament – during which 21-year-old wunderkind Jordan Spieth won it all and even broke a Tiger Woods record from 1997. Spieth is outfitted and sponsored by Under Armor and is, quite possibly, their most visible athlete of the moment right now.
Shares of Under Armor ($UA) were up over 5% last week and are following through today with a gain of almost 2% to a new all-time record high.
A word about Riskalyze:
In my practice, we use Riskalyze software tools to help assess clients’ true risk tolerance and to test portfolio configurations that match up accordingly. It’s changed our practice for the better, as I explain here.
