Is Lululemon Worth a Look Now?

Coming out of the Great Recession, few retailers were able to connect with customers the same way lululemon athletica  (NASDAQ: LULU  ) did. Same-store sales boomed, new markets were entered, and the stock absolutely skyrocketed.

But that was the past, and this is the present. The company has taken its fair share of hits to the chin, and shares have been punished accordingly. But Fool contributor Brian Stoffel thinks that, given a series of recent developments, it's worth kicking the tires on this growth stock.

It would be like buying Lululemon back when it was $3 per share

    I have always been willing to pay a bit extra for quality workout clothes and have quite a few LuluLemon items in my closet. And I won't be buying their clothing or their stock any time soon.

    I am way past giving my money to male CEOs who have a thinly, or not so thinly veiled hatred of women. Or at the very least are not smart enough to hire themselves a really good publicist and then listen to what they tell them.

    @MelissainVA-

    Chip Wilson has actually left the company entirely. (I'm assuming that's who you're referring to), and the new CEO comes over from TOMS shoes.

    That is good to know and about time. I will check him out and if he seems a better choice, I will at least let my yoga studio know that they can consider canceling the boycott. :-)
