Jaime -- -- welcome to you.
-- -- -- -- And I think.
At this point we really don't expect them to disappoint on earnings they're still a tremendous opportunity for growth from the company.
It's still very small still very Limbaugh and management team has done an excellent job.

I would expect that tomorrow we will either get I mean it or be it and they -- -- -- and raise earnings for the remainder of the year.
That said there -- -- mixed picture among your analyst community on the stock you've got a lot of upgrades and a lot of downgrades Jefferies for one cutting lululemon.
The price target down to 76 dollars -- 83 dollars we just saw the shares trading -- 171 dollars a how -- that translate into the trade what's your price target.
Our price target is actually much lower than that we have -- around 55 dollars a share and you know where where it's currently trading today -- roughly 72 dollars.
An attack is basically -- 45 times multiple on earnings for 2012.
And we think that may be that valuation has gotten a little bit ahead of where it should be.

So comments on the competitive space here.
And the challenges lululemon might be facing.

The sort of aspect of their here.
And you have different people coming in like -- -- -- -- that are really putting up a good fight it and that's something that's very disconcerting.
Until -- that the fan base and the following that Lou -- as is.
Something that you really don't -- and you our house and the other retailers but there are a lot of copycats and there there are that there are a lot of lower priced.
Competitors and -- you know if people do get more concerned about discretionary spending or consumer confidence that it obviously impact.
