Is Lululemon Athletica stock undervalued or overvalued?

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Lululemon Athletica is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Have Lululemon Athletica's shares ever split?
Lululemon Athletica's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 July 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lululemon Athletica shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lululemon Athletica shares which in turn could have impacted Lululemon Athletica's share price.
