On CAPS, 92% of the 2,655 members who have rated Under Armour believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Grimsooth and teentradeproject.

Last month, Grimsooth touched on the company's ability to connect: "As long as they continue to broker deals with others in performance athletics, sponsor athletes, and eventually introduce fashionable 'performance' pieces this pick should treat me well going forward."

In a pitch from three weeks ago, teentradeproject offered three reasons not to underestimate Under Armour:

A) ...No other company can compare when it comes to Under Armour's thermal gear, hot or cold. Not to mention their training gear and cleats which are the coolest thing an athlete can wear at my school.

B) Has plunged head first into multiple demographics and floated to the top. Not only will you find thermal gear at top of the line athletic stores but any outdoor center you visit (Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's, etc.) you will find a substantial amount of floor space devoted to Under Armour gear.

C) Revenue and balance sheet look great
