There is no denying it: Ulta Salon Cosmetics & Fragrance is on a roll.
 
The retailer will open 100 stores this year, including its first-ever location in Manhattan.
 
Shares of Ulta rose 38% last year, about four times higher than the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index’s gain, Bloomberg reported, and its annual revenue has quadrupled to $3.9 billion since it went public 10 years ago.
