In the following video, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith tells us whether or not he would buy lululemon athletica today. He tells us that while the growth story for Lululemon could be attractive, it's an incredibly expensive growth story at the moment with the unbelievably high multiples the company is trading at. He also gives us two other companies in the retail space that he would see as more attractive buys, and better bets at the moment.

Although Lululemon took a serious hit today, the company has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 108.23% since he recommended it in December 2010. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. I invite you to learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service: Supernova. Inside, you'll discover the science behind his market-trouncing returns. Just click here now for instant access.
