Burned by Lululemon

A long position in Lululemon looked like a hot trade but so far all it’s done is burn Fast Money trader Pete Najarian, co-founder of OptionMonster.

Najarian made the fateful call back on May 11th.

At the time he said, “This is a name that is just absolutely impressive This is a great entry point.”

That was when LULU was trading around $73.

But - flash forward 2 months - and it's safe to say $73 was not such a great entry point. On Tuesday July 3rd, LULU was trading $57.

Now what?

Najarian remains a buyer. “I still like it," he says on Halftime. "Their numbers are still outstanding. Around $57 I think the stock goes higher.”
