Hedge Funds Gain Big on Ulta Salon Cosmetics (ULTA)

Ulta Salon Cosmetics and Fragrance, Inc. (ULTA) opened the market today at $66.75 a share after closing at $65.58 Friday. By 10am, the share price has jumped to $69.32 a share and climbing. ULTA is a favorite of Jim Cramer who announced the stock as a good speculative buy on his Mad Money show Friday. ULTA has had strong performance, bordering a rally, and he thought the temporary decrease in price was a momentary weakness, advising investor to buy while the price was still depressed. Based on this morning’s gains, Cramer seems to have called it correctly.
