Company Report

Lululemon’s Immense Popularity Is an Advantage, but Competition in North America Is Heating Up

We think Lululemon has a solid plan to expand its product assortment and geographic reach while building its core business. While there are many firms looking to compete in its categories, we believe Lululemon benefits from the athleisure fashion trend and will continue to achieve premium pricing due to the brand’s popularity and the styling and quality of its products. Our narrow moat rating is based on the company's intangible brand asset.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Lululemon’s digital sales increased to about $5 billion in 2023 from less than $100 million in 2010 but its stores have remained very productive. Its sales per square foot of about $1,600 are extremely high.

Bears

Leggings and other key Lululemon items are offered by everyone from low-priced fast fashion to luxury apparel brands. The competitiveness of the sportswear industry continues to rise.
