Historically, tumultuous times offer some of the best opportunities to buy stocks, and the market's current mess surely qualifies. And when the stock in question is leading footwear and apparel maker Under Armour
In our Motley Fool CAPS community, an impressive 2,510 investors (out of more than 130,000 total) have shared their bullish or bearish opinions on Under Armour. Poring through the detailed information packed in pitches and other comments, I've dug up three of the top reasons why many members consider the stock a good buy today:
1. Growing popularity
Like branded clothing retailer American Apparel
2. Growth potential
In a rough retail environment that's pressuring many retailers such as Urban Outfitters
3. Strengthened balance sheet
Even in a recession, some companies, such as teen retailer Aeropostale
Of course, there's a lot more devil in the details of these buy-side opinions, which is why CAPS is such a great resource to check and balance your own analysis. You can read the bullish and bearish sides to every stock.
