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 outperformed the industry in the past three months, mainly attributable to a robust surprise trend driven by the progress on its strategy for 2020 and focus on ivivva’s remodeling. While first-quarter fiscal 2018 marked its fifth consecutive earnings beat, sales topped estimates for the 10th straight quarter. Results were mainly driven by synergies from product innovation, international expansion and digital acceleration, which collectively reflect strength of the company’s business. Improvements in product margins and cost efficiencies, as well as the introduction of new store formats aided results. Moreover, the company provided an encouraging outlook for the second quarter and raised its view for fiscal 2018. However, stiff competition and volatile consumer spending patterns may pose concerns. The rise in competition has been a threat to margins." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe the results demonstrate the continued momentum in the business and that the lululemon brand is gaining strength (+19% 1Q comp vs. our +12% est.; CC), globally; we continue to see ample growth opportunity ahead, led by Int’l and digital (+60% comp, CC). 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)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are becoming positively skewed to LULU as we head into its FQ4 results on Tuesday, March 27 AMC due to a noticeably improved spring product assortment that includes more seasonal patterns and colors in both women’s bottoms and tops as well as continued gains in men’s. Given the company’s Q4 positive pre-announcement in January, we expect investor attention will be on both 2018 guidance and an update on the CEO search. With respect to guidance, we believe LULU will guide full year comps to +MSD (CG 4.6% vs. Street 5.3% est.), consistent with its long term model, and Q1 comps in the HSD-LDD range vs. a very easy -1% comparison with ’18 EPS boosted by tax reform benefits resulting in earnings comfortably over $3.00 vs. our/consensus $3.20/$3.02. Our $3.20 EPS estimate is 18c above consensus largely due to a tax rate estimate that is ~500bps below the 28% consensus rate. That said, as we have seen this earnings season from most other companies, there is the potential for increased reinvestments capping the tax benefit to EPS we are currently modeling. As such, with the stock at ~25x NTM P/E, our growing positive stance on product is moderated by an EPS risk/reward picture that looks balanced and the uncertainty around the next CEO’s vision/direction for the business."
