1)I have posted plenty of facts, your memory just
does not serve you right. My last several posts were
to American Spirits questioning his his daily
projections- none of which come to fruition. I always question
his resorting to the past history of BEBE to support
his theory that we will go back to 40 and 50. I
question the lack of facts he uses to support his
predicitions. I would not call these my typical factual posts
for these were just my observations to anothers
postser and NOT to you.
Go do an analysis of
other posters and you "should" be surprised to see how
many posts are merely updates of price/volume, going
up, going down, retail is beaten down, vague and
redundant things. So, get off your high horse.
may not have mentioned AS2 in your post to "the
village idiot", however it is obvious that is what
TRIGGERED your "blowing hot air" at me, for my previous
posts were specifically "to A.S."..
Thus is why
Matt wisely mentioned A.S. in his response to you.
Your only kidding yourself if you think otherwise.
3)My statements regarding the risk factors associated
with BEBE: I know exactly the legal ramifications
involved in including these risk factors. I was merely
stating that I could not recall having seen them in
MONTHLY reports for other companies. I was referring to
MONTHLY reports, not QUARTERLY. I also asserted that they
were so in depth that they could scare away some
investors. For companies that do not issue monthly
statements, investors may not notice those risks for 90 days
You did make an issue with me earlier, yet I do
understand how you NOW do not want to make a "big thing"
5) You stated that "all you see is
name calling and innane remarks" and then you call me
"the village idiot" at the start of your childish
post. Quite a contradiction..
Now that I am
finished responding to your post, I am extremely happy to
say that i like the fact that you stated that you
shall ignore my posts.
Lets see if your a man
who can stick to your word.
wrong...but BEBE will move higher
here is the overall view....as we leave Feb we will
begin to think "Spring" this will shift market
Spring /Summer...home fix-up...HomeDepot makes
out...retailers make out...
hence I suspect that retail
will begin to move back into favor...these are the
darkest days but the candlestick pattern for BEBE points
Andrew Glassman reported on BEBE on CNBC tonight.
Teen apparel retailers out of fashion because teen
girls are looking for more feminine clothes and on
interest rate fears.
Pay no attention to vito_scalparesi saying buy at
10 (obvious short). CNBC exposure is very good for
BEBE, we on the rise again! we close tomorrow at 16.
guaranteed. I've always said all BEBE stock needs is more
exposure...this will provide big help to depressed stock price.
at 6:20pm as part of a segment about fashion
retailers. The main point was that these stocks have been
beaten to a pulp.
An analyst from First Union
said that these prices provide a compelling entry
On the other hand, it also mentioned that other
analysts think the pain may not be over due to consumer
concerns generated by a higher interest rate
Who is right is the $1 million question. Any final
Stk, sorry about my AS2 ramblings. I accidentally
lumped Olegik's and your messages to Topoftam together.
If there are many more true longs (2-3 year types)
then they do not seem to post. Not saying they do not
follow the board loosely but they must be lurkers.
Thanks for the reply. Take care,
You are certainly free to disagree with my
statement about many people here being long term investors,
but I think you under estimate the number. (but
possibly I'm overestimating)
"As for topoftams
contrarian views his comments are no more or less factually
sustained than many of the positive views"
Matt, but I don't see topoftam posting any facts....all
I see is name calling, and whining about the stock
price through innane remarks.
I did not say that
I believe the majority would like him to
leave.....I said I, and I'm sure others would.....
for all your discussion of AS2, I did not mention him
in my post. My remarks were about the content of
topoftams posts. Especially his remarks about the 10Q.
Clearly he has never read one, nor does he understand
I don't want to get into a big
thing over this. In the future I shall ignore his
I have to respectfully disagree with you on one
particular point stkstreet. Most posters on this board are
NOT concerned about where the stock will be in
several years. The vast majority of "predictions" talk
about where this stock will be in a week, in a month or
by the end of spring. All due, IMHO, to the past
rapid price spikes that SO many people were expecting
this time after earnings. Even AS2 was trying to have
all longs make a "pact" not to sell until the 40's to
combat the "short conspiracy", and that the 40s would
happen in a few weeks, but oh by the way, after earnings
he made a statement to the effect that he might sell
in the low 30's which he should see in less than a
month. Certainly not a long term view and he is without
a doubt, the biggest cheerleader on this board. As
for Topoftam's contrarian views, his comments are no
more or no less factually substantiated then many of
the positive views. As for AS2, his posts are
annoying to me personally because he does sound like a
broken record - however, to employ an aphorism, even a
broken clock is right twice a day. Someday AS2 will be
right I would think. Everyone has a right to post their
opinions here and hopefully in a respectful manner. What
bothers me about AS2 is that his posts sound more like a
cry for validation than a statement made with any
conviction - hoping that people will agree with him. Every
long wants to make money on this stock, but as I have
said before, if your viewpoint cannot stand a little
scrutiny, then you should not be posting. Despite all that
has happened to the stock price and prevailing
sentiment, what has really changed about the company in 3
weeks? Three weeks ago, prognosticators were saying we'd
be at 30, 40, 50 dollars a share right now. Whether
Topoftam is or is not stock market savvy is irrelevant to
the point I think he is trying to make (and not
trying to speak for him - just what I get out of his
posts). He seems to be saying to be realistic and
BALANCED if you are going to make predictions in your
posts. I am hoping that you would agree that many of the
posts here do not present a balanced view, in fact
every post that points to what it did last year as a
good reason to repeat it this year are not balanced
simply because they do not take into account current
market sentiment. I have enjoyed the regulars on this
board and would like to see things remain civil even in
these hard times. None of use here is to blame for the
mess Bebe's stock has become. We have all been in this
together (for those longs that have held). I do not mean
to bash AS2. His posts are statements of fact about
the historical valuations in this sector. However,
his presentation is not balanced because it does not
take into account what the market currently feels this
sector is worth in terms of valuations. Please let me
know your thoughts.
