Ulta Beauty (ULTA) Q2 Earnings Top Estimates, Sales Miss

Ulta Beauty, Inc. ULTA posted second-quarter fiscal 2020 results, with the top and the bottom line declining year over year. Also, sales missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results were affected by coronavirus-led store closures. However, the company started reopening stores during the quarter, with Shop Safe standards. Also, it is witnessing improved trends.

Incidentally, comparable sales or comps improved considerably as the quarter progressed. The metric that declined 37% in May, dropped just 10% in July as stores had reopened. In the first three weeks of August, comps were down in mid-single digits that indicates continued sales improvement. The company expects the near-term landscape to remain dynamic and troubled, and it did not offer any earnings guidance at this juncture.

Q2 Numbers

Ulta Beauty posted adjusted earnings per share of 73 cents, compared with earnings of $2.72 reported in the year-ago quarter. Nevertheless, the bottom line came much ahead of

Preying on his flatmate’s hang-up, Brian put an ad on Facebook that read: “Trouble swallowing pills? Does it seem ironic that swallowing swords is easy and then small pills make you gag?” As Brian had hoped, the roommate freaked out thinking Facebook
