Hey Doc! Hope you have been doing well. I had to stop lurking and make my first post in quite a while when I saw this one from you. Not trying to be hard to get along with but that sounds like a really bad idea. I like the acquisition of MapMyFitness better. At least it helps the UA brand itself and does not water things down. Kevin Plank didn't come this far to dilute the power he has built into the UA name by merging with DECK. At least I hope not. Still long my original position less half I sold when they split. Been building up a smaller position in another acct to trade a bit. But have not done so yet, just adding small amounts to it on dips. Slowly building. No rush with this stock, It looks to grow for a very long time. Just getting going overseas too.
I'm still looking forward to and waiting for UA's addition to the S&P500. That will cause a nice pop when shorts have to cover. That will be ugly for those that are caught large. Anyway, good luck and good fortune!
i just think that deck and ua would complement each other's weaknesses
deck has a great laser focus on women
ua on men
deck is strong with footwear
ua obviously has fallen short there
deck is strong internationally
ua is not
ua is strong with athletes especially footballers
deck understands runners (by the way if you did not know this
deck bought a great company called HOKA ONE ONE -- they have
a revolutionary shoe that is going to be HUGE)
