Ulta Beauty (ULTA) Recently Broke Out Above the 20-Day Moving Average

·1 min read

Ulta Beauty (ULTA) reached a significant support level, and could be a good pick for investors from a technical perspective. Recently, ULTA broke through the 20-day moving average, which suggests a short-term bullish trend.

The 20-day simple moving average is a popular investing tool. Traders like this SMA because it offers a look back at a stock's price over a shorter period and helps smooth out price fluctuations. The 20-day can also show more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.

Similar to other SMAs, if a stock's price moves above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive, while price falling below the moving average can signal a downward trend.

Over the past four weeks, ULTA has gained 15.7%. The company is currently ranked a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), another strong indication the stock could move even higher.

Looking at ULTA's earnings estimate revisions, investors will be even more convinced of the bullish uptrend. There have been 14 revisions higher for the current fiscal year compared to none lower, and the consensus estimate has moved up as well.

With a winning combination of earnings estimate revisions and hitting a key technical level, investors should keep their eye on ULTA for more gains in the near future.
