Lululemon Athletica Inc. (LULU) designs, distributes, and markets athletic apparel and accessories for women, men, and girls. The company has been experiencing a boost in ecommerce sales as customers continue purchasing from home. The company is also expanding into home-fitness with its recent purchase of home fitness company Mirror.

Mirror has an interactive workout platform that features live fitness classes and on-demand workouts. LULU expects to add its own classes to the platform. As gyms remain closed, this addition should help LULU weather the pandemic.

LULU, unlike other retail companies, doesn’t partner with physical storefronts, so it wasn’t as exposed to the physical store closings during the lockdown. LULU also generates a lot of its revenue online, which should lead to continued growth for the company during COVID and after. Their estimated sales growth for next year is 25%.

The Tale of the Tape

Take a look at the 1-year chart of Lululemon below with the added notations: 

Chart of LULU provided by TradingView

After hitting repeated new highs a few weeks ago, LULU appears to be in a “flag.” 

In technical analysis, a flag is a pattern in which we see a sharp rise in the price of a stock, followed by some sideways consolidation (looks like a flag).  In LULU’s  chart above, you can see the stock rallied in May, and since then has formed a sideways “channel.”   

This is a bullish pattern and LULU could be setting up for another leg higher, if it is able to break above the $315 area (flag resistance line).

Before making any trading decision, decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the highest probability of success. Do you prefer the short side of the market, long side, or do you want to be in the market at all? If you haven’t thought about it, review the overall indices themselves. For example, take a look at the S&P 500. Is it trending higher or lower? Has it recently broken through a key resistance or support level? Making these decisions ahead of time will help you decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the best opportunities.

No matter what your strategy or when you decide to enter, always remember to use protective stops and you’ll be around for the next trade.  Capital preservation is always key!

Good luck!
