I am looking into where a short short entry point is on Lululemon Athletica (LULU, $77). There is motivation aplenty. Competition from Gap’s Athleta? Patents on pants? Rising inventory? Color Bleeding? Who is John Galt? Landmark Forum participation (see the correction obviously added after some legal notice)? One can over-react to errata but I’ll hone in on other details the website has spacing errors after periods:
The training program was such a success that the lululemon people have created a life for themselves that most people could only dream of.lululemon is a company where dreams come to fruition.
Notifications about particular stores include information that the Walnut Creek, California store will in fact be open on July 4th. Congratulations. For a company whose prime value is brand identity these scratches on the fender do reduce the value of the car.
A small position probably could be had now with a stop over the spring highs…will look more closely in following days. I feel bad to have missed the (first big?) decline in Deckers DECK 45, whose story has some eerie parallels with LULU
LULU is a sloppy company, poorly managed, riding a fashion craze and about to hit severe price competition. SHORT! Namaste.
POSITION UPDATE: Soybeans vindicated today, only commodities position now. Bought some ZNGA outright as it heads into a ferocious short squeeze. Out of ANF.
