Over on CAPS, fully 86 of the 418 members who have rated Lululemon -- some 20.5% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include robertshrestha and All-Star fmahnke, who is ranked in the top 6% of our community.

Just yesterday, robertshrestha raised a red flag over Lulu's recent (massive) run-up: "Too far, too fast. At a P/E of +20, Lulu's faddish characteristics are just too risky to take on. Yoga seems to have peaked, anyway."

In a pitch from last week, fmahnke elaborates on Lulu as an overvalued lemon:

I've owned this stock on the long side in the $6-$7 dollar range as it's represented an good buy based on its growth. … The problem is that it is now trading at an [forward P/E] of 27 despite the fact that revenues declined last qtr. compared to the prior year and are expected to decline by 8% next quarter. Additionally they had a huge build in inventory (which could lead to future writedowns) and will likely face increased competition from larger competitors offering similar products at a lower price through better developed distribution channels.
