Analysts' Thoughts

LULU was in a strong upward trend prior to the market’s sell off in May and shares have already begun to recover as stability has returned to the broader market. The stock hit an all-time high in April and is once again approaching its record high ahead of the company’s Q1 report. Earnings have risen at an annual rate of 17.4% over the last five years and analysts expect more of the same moving forward with forecast profit growth of 18.9% per annum for the next five years. The stock has a high valuation with a forward P/E of 31.2, but LULU has always traded with a high valuation and the strong forecast earnings growth explains why traders have been so willing to buy into the stock at the current multiple. The company has topped estimates on the top and bottom line for eight straight quarters and the street expects a big earnings beat this quarter with a whisper number of $0.77, which would certainly push the stock to a new record high. Analysts have an average price target of $182.16 on the stock.
