  • 2. 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.
