is the reason for the pullback? DId Greg Scott
resign from ANF too? Serious response sought and I will
contribute on the buy side. (Against my better judgement
since I hate retail - BEBE is my only one)
The Doctor posted a link and asked for reactions.
Since I have two relatives who work for Microsoft, I
was interested in checking the link. After reading
the piece, I was convinced the writer is a slimeball
who tries to manipulate other investors for his own
advantage. My reply to the Doc's post was made before I read
subsequent posts indicating he has jumped ship.
too, am amazed that after all the positive info he
presented/reviewed regarding BEBE, he departed so quickly. I bet by
midday Wednesday, he was requiring 2 aspirin every 4
hours. Maybe he'll call us in the morning.
Don't worry or panic. The numbers were
Smal caps should be next in line and Bebe will get
plenty of attention.
UIS went down the other day
on earnings at first but then rebounded back up.
Just some people selling on earnings day as part of
their strategy. Call them weak hands. Get them out of
the way. Hold strong for much higehr levels. We will
A little shakeout right now. Remember how small
the float is. Selling below 25 makes no sense for
anyone in the know. So its the MM's again scooping up
the weaker shares. Tech news dominates right now on
the open but I'm sure we'll see upward momentum. Also
remember this is not the day or week or month to sell
anyway. My retails stocks are just sitting there. All my
techs up. Retail always gets 2nd or 3rd tier attention.
But Bebe remains a screaming buy. Will listen to the
CC and remain very excited about this stock.
With 0.49 against average estimate of 0.46 we got
a 6.5% surprise PLUS a nice expansion boost which I
believe is key to raise interest in the stock.
far, Bebe has been too conservative in their growing
plan and I think the Street didn�t like
The fact that they are opening more stores will do
more for the stock than 1 or 2 points more in
Also, remember my comment of yesterday. If you raise
the expectation to non-realistic numbers, you end up
being pessimistic when there is no reason to
2 days ago, the Doctor started doubting if we were
going to even get 0.46 !!!
Good Luck to
Great earnings for BEBE!! Expansion plans show company committed to continuing growth pace. Let's hope that the public will see this and buy into a retail stock.....retail has been down lately.
Call 630-395-0018 and code is "bebe"
we did it. Beat estimates. And think how few shares
will be available for sale today, hmm. You guys are
all holding right? Why sell in mid 20's? We're still
way down near the bottom. Look at the run Bebe made
last spring. Why can't it do it again? Interest rates?
They have no debt. They MAKE interest on their cash. A
cash machine. 14 quarters in a row. How can this stock
do anything but go up?
Looks like we did it, bro. I'm sure we made at
least some difference. And a lot of money. And a lot
more to come hopefully. Hard to find such a great
trade so let's make the most of it, and with Anf too, a
double-banger maybe. Looks like it to me.
Those 30 new stores in areas where there is high
demand for Bebe (including a big one in Miami South
Beach) ought to give it fuel for continued steady
growth. And they haven't even touched Europe, Latin
America or Asia yet. They're branched into shoes but I
think lingerie would also be a big area for them.
(Now if I could just cast the models for the ads).
Seriously though, why not a Bebe calendar/catalogue a la
Victoria Secret? In other words, plenty of growth ops
Why did this stock ever sell off?
forget Greg Scott, just an excuse for the manipulators.
And remember what a tiny float there is. Shares are
scarce right now. ching-a-ching. Hang onto yours.
