While lululemon athletica has exploded in popularity recently as a high-end retailer of women's fitness and yoga apparel, the market may expect more from the stock than it can deliver. Its sky-high valuation shows that the stock is priced to perfection, and while growth is strong for the company at the moment, being so dependent on a single fitness trend, such as yoga, is historically not without its perils. In this video, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith tells us what the dangers can be for investors with a very pricey, trendy stock that is on the radar of a lot of competitors.
Although Lululemon took a serious hit today, the company has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 108.23% since he recommended it in December 2010. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. I invite you to learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service: Supernova. Inside, you'll discover the science behind his market-trouncing returns.
