Ulta Beauty recent pullback a buying opportunity, says Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink says the recent pullback in shares of Ulta Beauty is a buying opportunity. The analyst attributes the selloff to momentum selling, technical breakdowns and a rise in perceived e-commerce threats. Channel checks suggest no changes to Ulta's sales run rates, Wissink tells investors in a research note. She thinks the company's comps are at the high end or potentially above its 12%-14% guidance. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $350 price target. Goldman Sachs this morning upgraded Ulta Beauty to Conviction Buy from Neutral.

Ulta Beauty long-term growth story remains unchanged, says Piper Jaffray
After meeting with the company's management team, Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy believes the long-term fundamentals of Ulta Beauty's (ULTA) growth story are unchanged. The shares have been under significant pressure over the last few weeks given concerns on cosmetics discounting in department stores and Amazon.com (AMZN) competition, Murphy tells investors in a research note. The analyst admits, however, that the near-term direction in the stock could be dictated by a "noisy narrative and a technical breakdown." She keeps an Overweight rating on Ulta with a $330 price target.

Outperform
Ulta Beauty selloff today a buying opportunity, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh attributes today's pullback in Ulta Beauty shares to Wall Street Journal commentary on a more promotional department store channel within the beauty category and negative sentiment toward retail names. The analyst recommends buying Ulta on the weakness saying he remains "very comfortable" with his fundamental views. He expects the shares to regain some of the recent losses and keeps an Outperform rating on the name. The analyst views current share levels as providing an attractive entry point. Ulta is trading down 5% to $254.74 in midday trading.
