What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ulta Beauty stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ulta Beauty stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ulta Beauty outpaced the industry in the past three months owing to a solid sales trend. While fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 sales were in line with estimates, it delivered sales beat in 15 of the last 17 quarters. Further, the company is gaining from its effective marketing initiatives, sturdy e-commerce business and superb salon operations. Notably, Ulta Beauty recorded 60.4% growth in e-commerce sales, which helped it to stand out amid intense online competition. Market share gains and benefits from the loyalty program are also aiding the results. However, the company’s margins were under pressure due to deleveraged merchandise margins, one-time bonus payment related to tax reforms and higher SG&A expenses. Further, operating margin is expected to decline at a modest rate in fiscal 2018. Nonetheless, management issued bullish earnings and sales outlook for the fiscal year. Estimates are trendind up ahead of first quarter earnings." (5/31/2018)
  • 2. Goldman Sachs Group Inc analysts commented, "Goldman Sachs Conviction List."Cosmetics accounted for approximately 51 percent of Ulta's total revenue last year but industry sources are now calling for "lesser innovation" in the space, Fassler commented in a research report. While the beauty industry is also seeing greater innovation in hair-care and skincare, the growth in these two categories won't be large enough to offset a slowdown in cosmetics. However, this doesn't imply that investors should be concerned as the company remains a share gainer in the overall beauty space.In fact, investor concerns are either "misguided or premature" as there is no reason to believe Ulta's core value proposition is under threat, Fassler added (see his track record here). For the time being at least it would be wrong to assume that Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) offers a compelling alternative or that the addition of rival brands to Amazon's platform is imminent.Bottom line, stabilization in Ulta's revenue and ability to achieve same-store sales guidance remains a base case scenario. But weaker than prior trends in the overall beauty space implies a reduction in Ulta's price target is necessary although the stock still boasts an "appealing" (10/16/2017)
