I’ve been a fan of all-things-beauty retailer Ulta Beauty (ULTA) for a long time. That doesn’t mean I’ve always been a fan of the stock, however, as the past several years have produced some truly eye-popping valuations when Ulta is hot.

That group is nearly 30% higher than the S&P 500 in 2020, but Ulta is 37% worse than its peer group in the past year.
