Jefferies reiterated a Hold rating on ULTA Salon (NASDAQ: ULTA), and raised the price target to $255.00 (from $215.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. ULTA reported another strong quarter with comps +14%, above Street and guidance. ULTA raised its full year guidance to 11-13% comp and low to mid 20% EPS growth.

Analyst Randal Konik commented, "ULTA reported another solid qtr, with comps and EPS beating expectations (albeit with a lower magnitude than in prior qtrs). Looking ahead, we expect healthy fundamentals to continue given ULTA's attractive market positioning in the beauty industry, a robust product pipeline, impactful marketing strategies and stellar execution. Valuation is all that keeps us on the sidelines, given high expectations for this stock. Maintain Hold, raise PT to $255."
