Lulu Fashion Lounge Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:LVLU ) shareholders should be happy to see its stock price rise 29% in the past month. But that’s little comfort given last year’s poor price performance. Like a dry lake in a tropical world, shareholder value evaporated, with stock prices down 65 percent during that time. When you consider the crash, the stock price recovery is not very impressive. You could argue that the sell was too hard.
The recent growth of 12 percent may be a positive sign of things to come, so let’s look at historical fundamentals.
