Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA) (Barron’s)
Why did Vasilescu throw in the towel on Under Armour? First, he expects Under Armour to earn a lot less than he previously did, with earnings before interest and taxes estimate to $25 million in 2018. That’s a huge cut from his previous estimate for $85 million. That’s based on his new gross margin and selling, general and administrative assumptions, as well as his expectation that revenue will fall 1%. Secondly, he expects Under Armour will have to amend its credit agreement, given that its maximum last 12 months total debt to EBITDA ratio is 3.25 times, which it looks set to exceed.

Spi Energy Co Ltd (ADR) (NASDAQ:SPI) (Benzinga)
Spi Energy Co Ltd (ADR) (NASDAQ:SPI) rose 199.2 percent to $1.900 in pre-market trading after announcing establishment of Blockchain-based infrastructure application division.
