Will be interesting to see what BEBE does through
January. I actually find BEBE very easy to predict. The
20's are not even worth my time. It's just a matter of
weeks before we leave them again. I am concentrating on
breaking through $50. I am looking for signs of it.
Investor sentiment concerns me. Not a lot of people on the
boards/public that seem to believe BEBE is a solid long term
investment. Again, I know more than most on this one and know
that it is. We will have trouble breaking resistance
at $28 , $32 and $50 if everybody keeps taking
profits. My wish is that people would let it ride.
Becoming a rolling stock, which is not what I'm looking
for here. Anyway, I'm bullish as ever. True bull can
post comments on both ends. That's the difference
between an honest bull and a hypester.

Gellar, star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and idol of
American teenage girls. All told, the clothier is now
dressing a dozen prime-time stars, an astonishing
marketing coup done entirely on the cheap. These women
aren't paid to wear the body-conscious clothes. But when
they do deck out in Bebe it can mean brisk business
for the 104-store chain. In 1997, for instance, there
was a run on a $300 Bebe tweed suit after Brooke
Shields wore it on an episode of Suddenly Susan. In New
York the suit sold out within a week.

already large, cheap position. Why not? Is there a better

Am in suspense though now about earnings. depending
on how good they are we could make a ton of money,

anything in between would be okay as well I guess.

Good luck to

After that, it's up to you. The more I read, the more I
think I may hold out for 40.
LONG AND STRONG ON
BEBE is one of the most undervalued stocks you
can buy right now. This is a steal of the century.
Bought 2000 shares at 2 1/4 and put in my GTC sell limit
in at 40. Nothing like an easy double
It has been a very interesting learning
experience for me. The volatility of this stock is amazing!
I do know one thing, I have never been involved in

they believe. I truely hope that we all succeed in our
That's a nice profit. By then momentum traders
and upward manipulators will be all over Bebe. But
I've learned that Bebe is one stock you can depend on
to outperform once it's headed to its heights. Let's
just hope profits give it a big boost. The size of
profits and forward-looking strategy could deternmine a
ten point differential. Best earnings - $50 again.
Steady but just good - maybe $40.
I know if they put
me in charge of Bebe now I'd run it into a global
name and mamek it a $200 stocks but I'm just a wee
stockholder speculating on their excellent performance and
potential. Still I will disappointed if I don't double that

The volatility is caused by a small float. (The cheif
problem for the stock) The only cure is to increase the
float....(painful for the stock price) The small float keeps many
fund managers out of the stock, as they cannot justify
having someone closely follow a stock that they hold a
very small position in. (relative to the size of the
fund). They cannot take a large position as it would be
to difficult to unwind without killing the stock
price. The other unfortunate reality of a small float is
that there are far too few firms who have their retail
analysts covering the stock.
real tempting to me but I don't like the way the
stock is so weak. It could go down to 50. I believe if
it breaks 70 it will force a few margin calls.
