UPDATE: Canaccord Lifts Lululemon Price Target Following Management Meetings And Positive Q4 Preannouncement
In a research report released on Tuesday, Canaccord Genuity analyst Camilo Lyon maintained a Hold rating on Lululemon (NASDAQ :LULU), but raised his price target to $58 (from $48), following a meeting with LULU’s CEO Laurent Potdevin, CFO John Currie, SVP of Finance Chris Tham and Director of IR Jodi Regts.
Lyon commented: “We came away incrementally more positive on the progress LULU is making in its recovery. The business appears to have stabilized and the team is focused on building on the momentum from 2014 into 2015 which should continue to see improved product assortments and presentations in pants and tanks.”
“That said, we believe there is more work to be done for it to recapture the comp and margin levels of years past. Moreover, we believe the stock has run too far too fast and would prefer to take a more constructive stance on it at lower levels.”
