Is This Your Chance to Buy Lululemon?

Shares of lululemon athletica (NASDAQ: LULU  ) are down more than 6% after the company announced earnings earlier today. Although revenue and same-store sales were both up, according to Motley Fool One Analyst Jason Moser, investors aren't happy that Lululemon lowered its estimates not only for the coming quarter, but for the whole year. That, combined with a high P/E ratio, makes Jason think that Lululemon had a decline coming. In addition, Jason thinks that some of today's decline could be attributed to the aftereffects of the company's yoga pants scandal and departure of its CEO, as well as problems with its supply chain.

So does today's decline make for a good entry point for intrepid investors? Jason doesn't think so; even though he likes the company, now may not be the time to buy, considering the strength of some of Lululemon's competitors like Nike (NYSE: NKE  ) and Under Armour (NYSE: UA  ) .

The retail space is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of last century. Only those most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward those investors who understand the landscape.
