Lululemon (LULU) -5.6% AH after announcing a shortage in its supply of luon pants after large shipments were deemed too see-through for its standards. LULU cuts its outlook, expecting Q1 comp-store sales to increase 5%-8%, resulting in Q1 revenues of $333M-$343M vs. prior guidance of $350M-$355M and analyst consensus of $354M.

    I said 60-62 on low guidance. It was lower than I would have expected, but I wasn't pricing in a pants problem...

    Here we have a 3420398230 PE stock that sells what are basically slightly better sweat pants, for $100 a pair. And they still f*** them up. What a buster.

    And it's probably not really a manufacturing glitch but a red herring for weaker than projected sales.

    This could help to set up a big day for Nike upon its earnings release - I imagine the numbers will be positive though I wouldn't mind seeing a pullback to go long on.

    This could be the "lemon" moment for LULU just as the "iMaps" fiasco turned the world upside down for AAPL. Has LULU peaked?
