Cowen reiterated an Outperform rating and $80.00 price target on Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ: LULU) following the company's 2Q earnings report. LULU reported an EPS print of $0.38, in-line with the Street. Also, a better-than-expected gross margin expansion was offset by higher SG&A.

Analyst Oliver Chen commented, "LULU's 2Q results were solid, despite a minor comp miss (+5% vs. Street +5.8%). Impressively, gross margin expansion came in significantly ahead of Street (+260bp vs. St. +140bp), and 2Q marked the inflection pt. for structural margin recovery. Going forward, margins set to expand further as benefits from improved supply chain are reaped. Reit. Outperform."
