    Special Div. a cover up for bad results

    poor same store sales and comps. In addition, earnings have been weak...therefore mgt. tries to decline the poor news by offering a special dividend. The bottom line is, BEBE is not performing well in the retail marketplace.ANF is a much better choice than BEBE, Even ANN TAYLOR is a better choice.

    • BEBE styles look just fine.They may need to beef up their marketing and advertisement a bit. One of the problems is that they are not low end or high end. There sales are aimed at the sector of the economy that is unemployed! I used to buy 6-10 pieces of clothing a year from Bebe. That was usually around $1,000to $1,500.00 I am now job hunting after 11 years with the same employer. Guess what? I am not buying clothing. There are aprox 456,000 new unemployment claims per week. This has got to be putting a bite on their sales.

    • I agree. This stock may drop the dollar before the dividend is paid. There is nothing bright in the sales figures. BEBE looks like a company that does not know where it wants to be. Opening new concepts and closing them so quickly. I am going to stay away from this one. It is not worth waiting around for the special dividend to me personally.
