Ulta Beauty weakness a buying opportunity, says Cowen

Cowen analyst Oliver Chen said Ulta Beauty reported industry leading comps, gross margins, and earnings growth. He said shares could be weak following guidance, which he views as conservative, but he would use the weakness as a buying opportunity. Chen reiterated his Outperform rating and $336 price target on Ulta Beauty shares.

Ulta Beauty price target lowered to $295 from $335 at Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager lowered his price target on Ulta Beauty to $295 from $335 following Q2 results.

Market Perform
Ulta Beauty downgraded on slowing market, rising competition at BMO Capital
As previously reported, BMO Capital analyst Shannon Coyne downgraded Ulta Beauty (ULTA) to Market Perform from Outperform, citing the slowing beauty market, department stores becoming more promotional and rolling out loyalty programs better targeted toward beauty consumers and Amazon (AMZN) gaining ground in the mass market and potentially gaining access to prestige brands. The analyst, who thinks the Ulta story is "shifting to a market share war from market expansion," lowered his price target on Ulta shares to $235 from $345.

Buy
Ulta Beauty price target lowered to $300 on valuation at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba said he has a difficult time finding anything in Ulta Beauty's Q2 report that makes him any less enthusiastic about the stock, but he also noted growing investor valuation concerns. While he keeps a Buy rating on Ulta shares, he lowered his price target on the stock to $300 from $350.

Overweight
Piper stays Overweight on Ulta Beauty but cuts target to $260
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy noted that Ulta Beauty's Q2 gross margin, which was an area of investor focus ahead of the company's report, outperformed expectations and she said Ulta "continues to play offense in the industry." While Murphy keeps an Overweight rating on Ulta, citing the company's share-growing characteristics, she lowered her price target on the stock to $260 from $330 as she rethinks her "valuation paradigm" to account for ongoing industry and consumer changes.
