Lululemon Investors Should Wait for Earnings Before Making a Move: Cramer
Shares of Lululemon Athletica inc. (LULU) have struggled in 2017. For the first several months, the stock was doing fine. But shares pulled back after the company reported a disappointing quarterly result in late-March, falling from about $66 to $52 in one day and finally making its lows below $50. LULU stock eventually rallied north of $60, but has since pulled back some. On Wednesday, shares are down 1.32% to $57.55.
Now the company is set to report earnings on Thursday after the close. Investors are hoping the apparel maker has overcome some of the issues that plagued its results earlier in the year. “I think Lululemon can have a good quarter,” TheStreet’s founder Jim Cramer, who also manages the Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust portfolio, said from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange Wednesday.

Today's Trading Lesson
Trading Rule #1 … Make a commitment.
The minute you make a commitment to a strategy, you immediately have focus.
It’s no accident this is day trading rule #1. Far too many traders overestimate their resources. It is incredibly difficult to trade everything.
Decide exactly how you define an edge. This means every thing else is off your board. You’re not going to be swayed into a trade you didn’t plan. This is incredible difficult if you are trading in a proprietary trading office. The adrenaline gets pumping and you want to do something.
Stick to your strategy and master it. Make it a rule to trade one strategy, and one only until you are making consistent money.
