It touches a lot of boxes he looks for. They have high margins, no debt and use internal cash flow to expand store count. They have a good loyalty program. They dropped after an earnings guidance downgrade and then he added it. He thinks they will get back to where they were. He likes the company long term as well.

Dropped in mid-2019 likely due to bad earnings. Before that, it enjoyed a rising pattern. Now, it's fallen back to a $240 base. Don't buy this until it breaks above $240 and move up to $270.

A long term darling in the industry. It took a hit after Q2 earnings, but only slightly missed. Contouring has slowed as a service offering. The multiple is just 1% over the peer group average, but sales growth of 12% is much faster than the peers. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $287.24)

A great combination of new store openings and same-store sales increase. They own 1000 stores and plan to open another 100 this year. Multiples came down with fears that Amazon was going to enter the cosmetic space, making it very reasonably priced now. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $246.95 )

A low-volume name that is doing things that are considered to be a little bit Amazon proof. The stores are not in big malls, but are off in the power centres on the sides. They have been growing ad hoc, but now are starting to get logistics in place, merchandising technology, loyalty programs, mobility, Internet and it is all coming together. It still has lots of legs left. (Analysts’ price target is $301.06.)

Very good management. Likes the segment and its growth profile. It can have a little torque, so you might want to use trailing stops. When it comes off, it can come off pretty hard.
