Let's dig into what Jim Cramer is watching in the markets Thursday. 

Lululemon's Impressive Quarter

Lululemon (LULU) - Get Report reported fourth-quarter earnings and revenue that beat Wall Street estimates.

Lululemon posted adjusted earnings in the quarter of $1.85 a share, topping analysts' estimates by 11 cents. Revenue rose 26% from a year earlier to $1.2 billion and beat analysts' expectations of $1.15 billion.

The company guided for fiscal first-quarter revenue of $740 million to $750 million vs. expectations of $744 million. Lululemon said it expects earnings of 68 cents to 70 cents a share in the quarter, ahead of expectations of 67 cents.

Lyft's Ready to IPO

Ahead of its highly anticipated initial public offering, ride-hailing giant Lyft jacked up the estimated price range of the IPO to between $70 and $72 a share.

Lyft's IPO is expected to be priced Thursday evening, with the stock set to debut on the Nasdaq Stock Market on Friday. In a new filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission posted Wednesday afternoon, Lyft raised its share price range from a previous estimate of $62 to $68 a share. Under the new price estimate, Lyft's valuation comes in at about $20 billion.

Lyft's valuation and its prospects as a public company are subjects of much debate as it prepares to begin trading. As the first ride-hailing company to go public and the first of several unicorn IPOs anticipated this year, Lyft's public offering will be seen as a bellwether for Uber's IPO, and possibly as a test of investor appetites for new tech listings. Uber Technologies is expected to follow Lyft into the public markets in the coming months.
