In a report published by Jefferies, analyst Randal J. Konik upgraded Ulta Salon (NASDAQ: ULTA) from Hold to Buy and raised the price target from $85 to $100.
In the report, Jefferies noted, "We are upgrading ULTA shares as we believe risk/reward is now attractive with the shares ~20% off their 52-week high. Despite this haircut to the stock price, we believe the company continues to benefit from favorable secular trends and see a visible path to growth with multiple upcoming positive catalysts ahead. We think ULTA is perfectly positioned to capitalize on trends of the aging baby boomer population."
