  • The End Of The Lululemon Run?

    By Ryan Canady - August 26, 2013 | Tickers: LULU, NKE, UA

    How could someone say anything is wrong with a company that manages to beat earnings estimates quarter after quarter? Such stocks are usually the type that investors profit from over a long enough period of time, but there is something different about Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ: LULU).

    The stock has been on a tear for the last few years, coming up from an adjusted close of under $3 per share as more »

  • Check Out These Fashion Retailers' Earnings

    By Damon Churchwell - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: DSW, GCO, LULU, SCVL

    As fall approaches, I have selected several of the fashion retailers that I believe are most likely to have fared well in the quarter ending in July. Trends may change quickly, but a solid business plan can have positive effects on results. Same-store sales and product margins are important gauges in determining the performances of such companies. Long-term sustainability and store-count expansion are positive aspects as well, as with most more »

  • Is Lululemon the Next Crocs?

    By Ted Cooper - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, GPS, LULU

    Investors have a tendency to operate at extremes; instead of acknowledging the positives and negatives of each investment opportunity, they have a habit of viewing stocks as either the best investment of the decade or the stupidest one of the century. Mention the threat of Samsung to an Apple fanatic and you will recognize this bias immediately.

    Unbridled optimism about a stock goes hand-in-hand with quickly-growing companies with popular consumer more »

  • Why LULU is a good pick - long term

    By Fredrik Roaldset - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: BEBE, GPS, LULU, NKE, UA

    I stumbled upon Lululemon as I overheard a conversation. What got me interested was how much these people were into the products. Great companies have customers that love them. It seemed to be true for this company. The second question I always ask is: "Is this a short term trend, or will people still love them next year and in 5 years from now?". That's where I started my more »

  • Athletic Wear Companies Target Sporty Women

    By Stephanie Faris - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: LULU, LUX, NKE

    Women who wear girly sunglasses socialize. Women who choose sunglasses from Oakley exercise.

    That's the message of the spring ad campaign for Oakley. In the ad, which actually does read, "For exercising not socializing," a woman clad in exercise gear strolls in front of two socializing diners, wearing a pair of Oakley sunglasses. The message is clear. Oakley sunglasses are for women who work out. The same message is more »

  • 3 Firms with Unjustified Sell-offs

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 3, 2013 | Tickers: AXLL, FL, LULU

    Buying shares of a company after a major sell-off can often net you a tidy profit -- assuming, of course, that the sell-off was an overreaction. Knowing if the company actually lost investors' interest for no good reason is difficult, however. In taking a close look at firms, you can often see where things went wrong and how the share prices might improve.  Let's take a look to see whether more »

  • Lululemon is Finding Out Where the Sidewalk Ends

    By Joel Wasserman - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: GPS, LULU, NKE

    Lululemon (NASDAQ: LULU) has been hit with a series of corporate unfortunate events. Along with that, their Q1 over Q1 net income has decreased by 7 Million in the last year from 54 to 47 Million. This shouldn't be taken lightly.

    By Gerelyn Terzo - June 24, 2013 | Tickers: JNJ, LULU, MW

    I was just a kid in 1982 when Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) was forced to recall its Tylenol capsules, but I remember it like it was yesterday. It wasn't unusual to have boxes of the over-the-counter pain reliever on the shelves in my home back then. And then the scare happened, and those boxes quickly disappeared. But eventually, Tylenol made its way back onto the shelves and it wasn more »
