The Bolingbrook, IL-based beauty retailer's CEO, Mary Dillon, was appointed to the Starbucks (SBUX) Board of Directors earlier this month.
"Starbucks and Ulta Beauty share many attributes: incredibly passionate customers, compelling loyalty programs, exciting growth strategies that put the customer at the center of all we do, and tremendous care for our people," Dillon said in a statement.
There's not much to like long in this market, but one former Trifecta Stocks holding shows some good relative strength. Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance (ULTA:Nasdaq) has been rather impressive during this tough month of January.
Particularly noteworthy is the higher low made on the chart when the relative strength index (top pane) touched down on an oversold 30 reading. That is quite bullish.
When money flows back into the market we'll see the big money gravitate to the best names -- Ulta is one of them. We could see the stock move sharply higher if the market regains its footing.
