Under Armour Inc. shares plummeted yesterday to less than half of the high they hit last summer, as investors showed concern about the company's decision to sacrifice earnings in the first half of this year to spend heavily on advertising. The shares begin falling - to finally close at $37.06, down $5.79, in regular trading - after Wachovia Securities analysts reported that the Baltimore athletic apparel company will front-load its 2008 ad spending by, among other things, running a 60-second commercial during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. Under Armour confirmed the report after the markets closed, adding that earnings for the first half of 2008 would probably be only 3 to 5 cents a share because of the unbalanced ad spending.

The Ravens might be set at quarterback, but Johnny Manziel is coming to Baltimore. Sort of. The 2012 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, who is entering the 2014 NFL Draft after two high-profile seasons with Texas A&M, is the subject of new signage at Under Armour's Locust Point campus. Signs in at least two locations at Under Armour's headquarters welcomed Manziel to "the team," though its not clear which team that is, exactly. Requests for comment from Under Armour were not immediately returned Monday evening.
