    • UA today is higher by 2.95% to $31.50, and UA.C is up 9.4% to $26.41.

    • Channel checks from Piper Jaffray indicate most of the consumer action last night was focused on toys, electronics and beauty.  The first two categories are business as usual for the shopping event, but strong traffic at beauty stores could be an extra boost for Ulta Salon (NASDAQ:ULTA), Sally Beauty Holdings (NYSE:SBH) and e.l.f. Beauty (NYSE:ELF).
    • The investment firm also cited solid demand for smartwatches at Fossil (NASDAQ:FOSL) and Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS) stores, while also calling footwear traffic (NKE, UA, FL, FINL, DECK) and conversion rates encouraging.

    • Barron's notes that short interest in Nike (NYSE:NKE) ($1.9B) is at an all time high, +150% YTD. This suggests  there's more short-term pressure to come for Nike, it says.
    • Nike investors are used to better that 8% revenue growth, and it has been popular for so long that investors may have forgotten it's still subject to "fashion risk."
    • With the competition (UA and OTCQX:ADDYY/OTCQX:ADDDF among others) having "upped its game," growing short interest indicates some think things might get worse before they get better.

    • Under Armour (NYSE:UA) is tracking to open at its lowest level in several years after CEO Kevin Plank said the company's growth rate going forward will be "less than expected" and cited margin pressure. Plank appears to be pulling back on some rosy guidance issued at last year's Analyst Day presentation.
    • UA shareholders could take some comfort that the margin pressure called out by Plank is somewhat transitory in nature (sporting good chain liquidations) and the second half of the UA conference call has been more positive, with the long-term potential in new categories (footwear, fashion, lifestyle) spelled out.
    • One interesting point from Plank to consider is the heavy toll Under Armour is paying by competing with Nike for college apparel deals. Is there some buyer's remorse for the 15-year $280M deal signed with UCLA just last May?
