ULTA had a consistent increase in their annual top-line revenue with the exception of the most recent hiccup. We see that the company has a nice, slow upwards trend. Additionally, ULTA has delivered consistent beats during their last 4 earnings. When we invest in long-term holds, we typically like to see an increasing annual top-line revenue and a consistent, strong upwards trend. Will you invest in ULTA? ๐Ÿค”
