What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lululemon Athletica stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lululemon Athletica stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "lululemon has surpassed the industry in the past three months attributable to a robust surprise trend driven by the progress on its strategy for 2020 with stringent focus on digital and international growth. Second-quarter fiscal 2018 marked its sixth consecutive earnings beat and 11th straight positive sales surprise. Results reflected broad-based growth across all categories, channels and geographies. The company also witnessed significant comps growth driven by traffic growth across channels, led by the success of its strategy to acquire guests. The company expects the momentum from the first and second quarters of fiscal 2018 to continue in the fiscal third quarter. Consequently, management provided a solid view for the fiscal third quarter and raised its guidance for fiscal 2018. However, stiff competition and volatile consumer spending patterns may pose concerns. The rise in competition has been a threat to margins." (9/5/2018)

Momentum has carried into 2Q18, and we raise our 2Q comp sales estimate to +9% (from +7%; CC). We expect continued GM gains (+265bps in 1Q), on tough comparisons, and expense leverage to drive continued earnings power. We raise our PT to $125 from $90." (5/31/2018)
