    Russell 2000

    If picked up on Russell 2000 will it really have
    that much of an effect? I can see a Dow or possibly a
    S&P 500 where many index funds would be forced to
    purchase. But with R2K any index fund would have a sampling
    of the companies, not all. Maybe a little publicity
    would be the best we could get out of the deal.
    Interested in other opinions.

    • Does not seem as if it will break through 28
      today, but holing up well considering market tone as
      American Spirt noted. Shipment of shoes to other retailers
      in this qtr. should help to boost revenues. We won't
      know how well they are selling until folowing qtrs.
      This qtr looks good.

    • Shoes are in some of the larger, high profile
      stores. The entire line was in the San Francisco Center
      Mall bebe. Most stores are expected to have shoes by
      the end of summer, also note that in addition to
      Madamoiselle magazine, the Chicago Tribune featured a pair of
      bebe shoes 2 weeks ago in their WomanNews section. The
      shoes are out there....

    • The pause that refreshes. See you all in the 30's soon.

    • Before my wife left bebe they told her that the
      new shoe line would not primarily be distributed
      through the stores. Rather, a small part of the line
      might be available thru the stores. They never
      explained the reasoning.

      The only thing I can think
      of is that most bebe stores don't have the room to
      incorporate the entire shoe line. For example, my wife's
      store, while being the smallest square footage in her
      district, was also the number one in volume hands down.
      They are so small they do not carry the lingerie line
      and very few leather goods. (which begs the question,
      why isn't bebe expanding the store? buts that's
      another issue) I also think the shoe line will get a
      stronger start in the dept stores, and if they didn't do
      well, bebe doesn't have to take markdowns!


    • above 28 and a close above that level. This has
      been the short term resitance point over the last
      couple of weeks. After that looking for a move to 31. continues to follow Russell 2000 Reconstitution
      stocks and believes that absence other negative news
      these stocks will continue to move higher or at least
      maintain a level of support.

      Yeah BEBE!!!! We'll
      see if we have another good day. Looks pretty steady
      at 8:45 this morning.

    • First time BEBE closed above its 13-day EMA
      (Exponential Moving Average) since late April. Since then, the
      average did exactly what it's known to do - act as a
      ceiling while a stocks price trends downward. Bebe
      continually kissed, but then fell downward ever more this
      average for two solid months. The potential for the flip
      side of this now exist! That is, the average
      (currently sitting slightly above 25) will act as a floor as
      the stocks price trends up. I expect some pullback
      either tommorrow or the next. What I'm hoping for is
      that the close of business price does not pierce thru
      the moving average heading back down. I do not expect
      another runnup of more than one or two points before this
      average gets tested. Good luck longs. But expect a bump
      or two along the way.

      P.S. Anyone interested
      in seeing the chart for BEBE showing the
      significance of the 13 day EOM should go to and enter BEBE in the stock edit box.

    • Agree with you, this stock will go at least to 35
      very very soon.

      I believe maybe we are seeing a
      "short squeeze". If we look at the sell-out volume of
      the past weeks a lot more shares than the 2.4M float
      were dumped and they were not insider sells.

      anybody is interested, here is a good article about short
      squeezes. Its not new, but is

      If this is what we are seeing, LETS PUT MORE
      LEAST TO 35-37 !!!!

    • I believe they're in Saks and such and not in Bebe stores. Why I don't know. But the girls love em I heard.

      Another 2 1/2 points tomorrow please? This is getting fun. Almost back to even.

    • Bloomberg shows that Raymond James is covering
      BEBE with a Buy as of today.

      Also, in addition
      to the upgrade on friday Kloppenberg at Robertson
      Stephens has Reiterated her buy on the stock a second

      Great news Longs
      Go BEBE


    • Great weekend...I wish I could get returns
      comparable to how I did at the crap tables in Vegas.

      Anyway to the real issue... unfortunately, I didn't get
      to spend too much time at the new Vegas bebe store
      (at the Venetian hotel), but it was definitely larger
      sq footage than most other stores I have seen. I did
      not see any shoes, but did get a glimse of the new
      workout line. The location of the store is such that it
      is the first storefront you see when entering the
      mall from the casino!!

      One note, while my wife
      and I had a late dinner at the hotel, I was impressed
      by the number of women walking through the casino
      with bebe shopping bags! It was impressive considering
      we were having dinner around 10pm... BTW the store
      is open to midnight.

      GO BEBE!!
