ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. (ULTA - Snapshot Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise almost 11.3% on the day. The news led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session, resulting in solid volume. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $232.99  to $243.66 in the past one-month time frame.
