Recent News & Updates
Ulta's More Attractive Than Ever
Ulta’s analyst day caused a sell-off but in my opinion, the announcements of the day were a net positive. Ulta’s positioning itself towards e-commerce. This should drive growth and profitability. UB Media vertical is overlooked but, I believe, will grow into a material part of the Ulta story. The reopening thesis holds and is now further supported by real-world data. The stock relatively de-rated. Consensus estimates and management guidance is low both near and long-term. Ulta is a strong buy.

Ulta Beauty Stock: COVID-19 Resurgence Might Limit Upside
Ulta Beauty delivered robust second quarter results as the beauty category recovered faster-than-anticipated from the disruption triggered by COVID-19 last year. The company raised its fiscal 2021 guidance for the second time backed by strong sales momentum. In my opinion, much of the anticipated recovery in Ulta Beauty’s business is already priced into its stock. Additional upside might be limited by certain potential headwinds, mainly COVID-19 resurgence.
