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 robust surprise trend driven by progress on its strategy for 2020 and focus on ivivva’s remodeling. While third-quarter fiscal 2017 marked the company’s third consecutive earnings beat, sales topped estimates for the eighth straight quarter. Moreover, the company emerged strong this holiday season driven by accelerating trends across all parts of its businesses. Further, the company anticipates business strength and current trends to sustain throughout 2018 and beyond. This led it to raise revenue and earnings forecasts for fourth-quarter fiscal 2017. Estimates have been stable ahead of the fourth quarter results. However, the company expects to record a significant income tax charge in the fourth quarter related to a one-time deemed repatriation tax on foreign earnings. Further, rise in competition has been a threat to margins." (3/6/2018)
- 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "LULU will report FQ3 results on Wednesday, December 6 AMC. We are modeling a 4% comp and 52c in EPS (vs. consensus comp of 5.3% and EPS of 52c); however, we believe there could be upside of ~200bps to our comp assumption and ~2c-3c to EPS largely driven by continued strength in men’s and improving outerwear sales. That said, we believe buyside expectations are high (and uniformly positive), with comp expectations in the 6-7% range, leaving little room for topping an already elevated bar. As for gross margin, now that much of the company’s supply chain recapture work has been completed, we are looking for only modest GM expansion (+16bps vs. flat guidance), and during the quarter, we noticed persistently elevated levels of inventory on the company’s We Made Too Much page (e.g. over 300 women’s styles on sale during much of October), even despite lululemon having had its third warehouse sale this year, a physical sale in Ontario at the end of September. Separately, a month ago, news of Creative Director Lee Holman’s resignation (for personal reasons") after just two years in the role should have been cause for concern (his predecessor lasted only two years as well), however, that was overshadowed by the CEO’s commentary that referenced momentum in the business entering the holiday season. Since that announcement, the stock has been up 5% vs. the XRT +12% (700bps of weaker relative performance). Taking it together, while we see the likelihood of a Q3 EPS beat, we continue to see mounting evidence of our denim fashion shift thesis taking shape over the next 4-6 quarters and thus would use any strength as a selling opportunity."

Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
