I think the mostly male analysts totally don't understand the brand and the way that their core customer buys it in the first place. All these financial guys compare it to Nike and Under Armour but this misses the point. The LULU customer is a top 10 percent person who will not trade down to those other brands. And as those other brands become more strong and ubiquitous in the athleisure segment, the LULU customer will become even more adamant about staying exclusive and high end with Lululemon. I have made money a few times on the misunderstanding of the analysts on this stock and I am a buyer again. Lulu is more akin to an LVMH brand not a mass sportswear co. In fact, Lulu may be the new Prada or Louis Vuitton. It could raise prices considerably and their core customer would love it....scarcity, exclusivity and prestige. She won't admit this, just as she won't admit buying Laboutin shoes for $750 a pair, claiming she is buying it just for the quality not the red undersole. Stock goes to $78 in three months.
