Stocks to Buy Now, or Just Another Fad?

After being one of the hot stocks to buy a few years ago, Lululemon Athletica (Nasdaq: LULU) has hit a rough patch.

The company this week had to recall yoga pants made with fabric known as Luon because it was overly transparent - meaning Lululemon customers were walking around with see-through pants.

The products make up about 17% of all "bottoms' sold by the company. According to The New York Times, the recall is expected to account for about $60 million in lost sales.

Lululemon investors saw the stock take a 10% hit this week after the pants debacle.
