Now is time to build positions in Ulta Beauty, says Baird

Baird analyst Mark Altschwager believes Ulta Beauty shares will be range-bound near-term as investors digest choppier category trends and deliberate its valuation. Altschwager met with management and came away confident the company has the team and tools in place to capture further market share and fend off competitive threats. Altschwager, who believes now is the time for investors to build positions, reiterated his Outperform rating and $295 price target on Ulta shares.

Cowen analyst Oliver Chen said Ulta Beauty reported industry leading comps, gross margins, and earnings growth.

Ulta Beauty continues to be a favorite Long Position, says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Omar Saad said Ulta Beauty continues to be a favorite Long Position in the firm's Model Portfolio despite share price underperformance and increased controversy surrounding it. The analyst said double-digit sales and earnings continue, which means the share price contraction is due to multiple compression, but these "superb" Q2 results should go a long way in alleviating concerns. Saad reiterates his Buy rating on Ulta and raised his estimates.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Brent Hill, who prefers Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP) as plays on the digital video transition occurring across the social media space. Thill, who thinks Twitter will underperform broader internet and social peers, acknowledged that investors might ask why he is not advising to sell the stock, but he thinks recent management changes could improve the company's declining ARPU in the near-term. 2. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital by analyst Shannon Coyne, who said that there are bright spots ahead for the company, but sees "clouds on the horizon" looking ahead, including a slowing beauty market and department stores that are "upping their collective game." 3. Hormel Foods (HRL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse by analyst Robert Moskow, who said increased volatility in the protein markets has reduced earnings visibility and his confidence in FY2020 margin targets of 15-19%. Moskow sees further risk from the pork industry's 10% expansion in slaughter capacity. 4. TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Shutterstock (SSTK) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Jefferies. 5. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus by analyst John Staszak due to concerns about slowing international revenue combined with a potential for a comparable slowdown in domestic sales. The analyst now expects Domino's to post mid-single-digit comp growth following years of double-digit growth and believes margin gains will be limited going forward as the company invests in the business. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
