Apparel retailer Lululemon Athletica (LULU) benefited from less-seasonal offerings, strong brand, and a direct-to-consumer infrastructure that shields it from wholesale distribution backlogs and increased levels of price discounting.

Discussion of markets and holdings

MARKET REVIEW

Markets were extremely volatile in the period, unsettled by U.S.-China trade discord and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stocks peaked at new highs in early 2020, then dropped dramatically as the viral outbreak spread around the globe, disrupting markets and life everywhere.

The realities of the pandemic dictated daily conduct for individuals, businesses, and governments around the world. Shelter-in-place and work-from-home became standard. Global infection and mortality rates reflected varying policy and social behaviors, with the number of infections and deaths highest in the U.S. Developing a vaccine became an overwhelming focus, with both human and capital resources deployed.

While a few luxury brands are typically strong performers, most top apparel stocks are mid-range or athletic brands that succeed on their broad appeal and large market share

Apparel stocks span a wide range. There are huge names that top exchange listings and middle performers that rarely draw attention. For companies in both camps, though, Covid-19 came as a shock. Though e-commerce boomed, discretionary spending took a substantial hit, so even apparel brands pegged as top buys at the start of 2020 are having to reposition themselves in hopes of recovering from consumer spending decreases. It's a challenging situation, but brands that can find a way to make the current market work to their advantage have an opportunity to thrive.

Demographic shifts matter in terms of their implication of tailwinds for businesses and investors. One of the most prominent is the aging population, as we have discussed previously. Meanwhile, we think that the expansive "sheconomy" should be as significant but appears to be less talked about.

This megatrend is underpinned by a combination of several demographic subtrends:

  1. A growing female labor participation rate.

Lululemon's promising purchase could drive prices

Lululemon Athletica (LULU), the high-end athleisure brand founded in 1998, has had an interesting run over the last two decades, particularly since going public in 2007. The company has played a key role in turning active wear into daily wear and, as that trend has taken hold across regions and demographics, the brand has expanded so that now Lululemon is much more than an apparel company. Today, it is a well-founded fitness brand – and a highly profitable one, with revenue growing from $269 million in 2008 to $3.288 billion in 2019, and the company shows no signs of

MARKET REVIEW

U.S. equities markets were highly volatile, unsettled by U.S.-China trade discord, softening economic growth in the U.S., Europe, China, and geopolitical uncertainty.

Affected by tariffs, industrial, agricultural, and transportation sector activity deteriorated. New threats and escalating rhetoric caused growing concern, and companies across sectors cited trade tensions as the source of heightened caution in planning and investing. The U.S. political landscape was likewise unsettled, as investigations of interference in the 2016 presidential election unfolded, impeachment proceedings against President Trump began, and the 2020 election cycle ramped up.

U.S. economic activity showed signs of tempering, with job growth and

Lululemon is also trading at an amazing 47 times earnings. The company’s stock has traded at an average multiple of only 35 times earnings in its recent past. Any missed expectations in the future make the retailer susceptible to a steep downfall.

Revenue jumped 4% in the quarter

Nike (NKE) released its fourth-quarter results on Thursday after market closed. Having sold more sneakers and sports gear than Wall Street forecasted, the company posted better-than expected quarterly revenue. But the company’s earnings fell shy of estimates due to high spending on “Nike Fit,” a feature on its app that tells the customer their show size by scanning their feat.
