10:23 EDTLULUAnalyst warns lululemon seeing increased competition in Canada
lululemon's (LULU) Canadian stores will probably be under pressure as new competitors have entered the company's core yoga apparel market there, research firm Macquarie warned in a note to investors earlier today. The firm highlighted one such competitor, Lole's Learning. WHAT'S NEW: Canada based Loleís Learning and lululemon have similar products, similar prices, similar marketing events and similar store locations, Macquarie analyst Laurent Vasilescu reported. However, Lole's prices are "a tad more competitive," the analyst stated. Lole's started out as a wholesaler, but now has about 2,000 retail locations, many of which are within walking distance of lululemon stores, the analyst stated. Lole's has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 29% over the last five years, according to Vasilescu, who kept a $42 price target and Underperform rating on lululemon. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 9, lululemon reported slightly stronger than expected first quarter results and said that its U.S. stores were posting strong same-store sales trends in the initial weeks of Q2, while its Canadian stores were seeing positive Q2 comp trends. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, lululemon rose 1% to $68.29.

11:11 EDTBBYAnalyst says Best Buy shares poised to rise
Best Buy's (BBY) stock is poised to advance after the company reports its second quarter results, research firm B. Riley predicted. WHAT'S NEW: Best Buy's forecast for increased margins in the second half of the year, along with easing comparisons, should cause the stock to rise, predicted B. Riley in a note to investors earlier today. The shares will be particularly well-positioned to climb after the company updates its guidance following its Q2 results, the firm believes. Best Buy's initiatives should help increase its revenue and profits heading into fiscal 2017 and the retailer can continues to increase its market share at the expense of Sears (SHLD), RadioShack and others. Additionally, macro economic trends remain favorable for Best Buy and its key product categories continue to perform well, according to B. Riley. The firm, which is particularly confident about the company's ability to beat Q4 consensus estimates, keeps a $47 price target on the name and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In their own note to investors this morning, SunTrust analysts David Magee and D. Mitch Van Zelfden speculated on potential M&A activity in the specialty retail space, noting that "Wall Streetís appetite for acquisitions has strengthened recently." In their opinion, Best Buy acquiring GameStop (GME) is among the "most compelling relationships" in the sector, the note explained. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Best Buy slid 0.4% to $34.72, while GameStop rose 1.3% to $44.92.
