Victoria's Secret is losing its likes, according to UBS analysts, who conducted a social media analysis of a number of apparel brands. The data shows that the L Brands Inc. lingerie brand saw its Instagram "likes" fall 34% year-over-year. Meanwhile, American Eagle Outfitters Inc.'s Aerie gained steam, as did a few other lesser-known brands. "For example, Fashion Nova, an apparel retailer which posts similar type of imagery as Victoria's Secret does, has made exceptional gains on Instagram," UBS said, noting that Fashion Nova had 37 million likes in June. "We think the market would be surprised to learn Fashion Nova generated more likes than any other brand or retailer we track in this study." Rapper Cardi B has a collection with Fashion Nova. Victoria's Secret, which has fallen out of favor, has struggled to get back on trend. L Brands stock is up 3% for the year to date while American Eagle Outfitters has fallen 6.7% and the S&P 500 index has gained 19.6%.

Investors in growth stocks can spot a new entry point by looking for the three-weeks-tight, an unusual short-term chart pattern. Consider L Brands in 1982.
Les Wexner says he ended his association with financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein more than a decade ago, but new questions about their past connections are coming to light in the wake of Epstein's recent arrest on new charges in New York.
The hits keep coming for Victoria’s Secret, as shares of the lingerie company’s parent company L Brands slid more than 5% on Tuesday. Les Misérables Les Wexner is the CEO of L Brands, which also owns beauty and fashion companies such as the Limited and Bath & Body Works. Les was also once tight with the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was recently indicted on a number of horrific sex crimes; he was charged with sex trafficing after a collection of lewd photographs of children was found in his mansion. Epstein had ties to everyone from our current President to former President Bill Clinton, as well as to Wexner. Epstein was the money manager for Wexner for years, and Wexner even gave him his mansion for free in 2011. Wexner has tried to distance himself from Epstein in recent years, which is a bit tough because for a time he was known as Epstein’s only client. Fallen Angels The former lingerie giant has had difficulties adjusting to a more progressive time, in which body positivity and diversity are now de riguer for most fashion brands. Victoria’s Secret has seen its market share drop 9% since 2015, and it is set to close 53 stores in North America, up from 30 closings last year. It doesn’t help that Victoria’s Secret CMO Ed Razek attacked positivity-focused competitor ThirdLove in a Vogue interview last year, claiming Victoria’s Secret’s fashion show lacked plus-size and transgender models because, “No one had any interest in it, still don’t.” While the Victoria Secret fashion show was once a pop culture event, it had its lowest ratings ever last year. Changing Times The sharp blowback against Wexner and L Brands’ stock is yet more proof of a recent cultural shift that shareholders and the public (or at least a certain segment of social media) are now very aware of the behavior of CEOs, and bad press can now potentially be more harmful than ever before, particularly for a brand that markets itself to young women. -Michael Tedder Photo: Brendan McDermid / REUTERS

On the heels of Gap's February announcement that it would separate into two businesses, activist hedge fund and shareholder Barington Capital called for a similar move at L Brands LB . While investors sent Gap shares up more than 20% on the news that Old Navy would be a stand-alone business, we think such a breakup could be even more favorable for L Brands, given the lucrative 20%-plus operating margins of its Bath & Body Works segment and the upside that two distinctly focused businesses could create. Old Navy's same-store sales growth has already begun to slow and enterprise operating margin has contracted more than 500 basis points since 2013, a trend that might put such a transaction at risk.
