What are analysts saying about lululemon athletica inc. stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about lululemon athletica inc. stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lululemon has surpassed the industry in the past three months, mainly driven by its focus on strategy for 2020, as part of which it aims to generate revenues of $4 billion. To achieve this, the company is committed toward product innovation, building store fleet in North America, expanding digital business and global expansion. All these factors helped Lululemon to post robust numbers in second-quarter fiscal 2017, even amid a tough retail landscape. Both sales and earnings topped estimates and grew year over year. While the bottom line marked its 2nd consecutive beat, the top line recorded its 7th straight quarter of positive surprise. Also, sturdy e-Commerce growth fueled comps. Apart from this, the company is on track with ivivva’s remodeling. The solid results and favorable third quarter trends encouraged management to raise its fiscal 2017 view. However, stiff competition and volatile consumer spending patterns may pose concerns." (9/25/2017)
- 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe this analogy describes the unfolding trend shift from athletic apparel to denim. In the third installment of our LULU survey, we saw a decline in LULU customers’ purchase intent of yoga leggings. In fact, wave #3 of our survey showed the most significant deterioration of metrics to date, thus further supporting our SELL thesis and the risks that LULU faces from shifting fashion trends and increasing competition. The combination of declining purchase intent, increasing signals of denim gaining traction, peaking margins, and a more focused Athleta creates a risk/reward that skews heavily downward, in our opinion. We are also witnessing some shifts in brand preferences away from Nike and Under Armour, and in favor of Athleta." (9/22/2017)
- 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "LULU reported adjusted 2Q EPS of $0.39, vs. FBR/consensus estimates of $0.34/ $0.35 and $0.33–$0.35 guidance. Results reflect +7% constant currency comps vs. FBR/consensus 4.0%/4.2% and adjusted EBIT margin de-leverage of -160 bps vs. FBR/consensus –250/-230 bps. Management provided 3Q17 adjusted EPS guidance of $0.50–$0.52 (vs. FBR/consensus of $0.53/$0.52) on SSS of +MSD (vs. FBR/ consensus +5.0%/+4.0%) and increased guidance for 2017 adjusted EPS to $2.35– $2.42 from $2.28–$2.38 (vs. FBR/consensus of $2.36/$2.33) and reiterated SSS of +LSD (vs. FBR/consensus of +3.6%/+3.1%). LULU has a strong brand and has done a good job innovating and offering newness. However, we remain on the sidelines given valuation and risks with a slowing athleisure market." (9/1/2017)

Consensus Ratings for lululemon athletica inc. (NASDAQ:LULU) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings 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). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus 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.
