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 outperformed the industry in a year’s time owing to a robust surprise trend driven by the progress on its strategy for 2020 with stringent focus on digital and international growth. Fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the eighth consecutive earnings beat and 13th straight positive sales surprise. Results reflected a solid holiday season backed by positive response to merchandise assortments along with continued investments to drive business growth. Moreover, strong earnings growth was driven by positive trends in traffic, guest engagement and product margin. Moving ahead, lululemon is likely to witness strong momentum across its business while executing growth strategies. As a result, management provided a solid view for first-quarter and fiscal 2019. However, currency headwinds and SG&A deleverage may continue to weigh on results. Stiff competition and volatile consumer spending are other concerns." (4/1/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe the results demonstrate continued momentum in the business globally (+18% 3Q comp vs. our 14% est.; CC). We continue to see ample growth opportunity ahead, led by Int’l and digital (+46% comp, CC). We believe this momentum has carried into 4Q18, and we raise our 4Q comp sales estimate to +11% (from +10%). We expect continued GM gains (+220bps in 3Q) on tough comparisons and expense leverage in FY18/19 to drive earnings power. We raise our top-line/EPS estimates and remain $165 PT." (12/6/2018)
