Vera Bradley (VRA) is a designer, producer, and retailer of accessories for women. Its products include handbags, accessories and travel and leisure items. The company's unique fashionstatement purses appeal to younger demographics in a price range of $28 to $128. This design niche seemed very promising with the company's IPO in October 2010 at $23. But after a quick peak above $50 in the first half of 2011, it's been all down hill.

Drop That BagIn its June 5 earnings report, the handbag maker cut forecasts and said its CEO was leaving as inventories were bulging, soaring 41% from a year earlier. The stock dropped over 10% the next day, bouncing off of $19.50 as investors scooped up shares and prevented a new 52week low, which was exactly one year ago today at $19.26.

"With wholesale revenues continuing http://www.goldengoosesale.com/ to weaken and samestore sales flattening out with just 85 stores, topline growth continues to come into question," said an analyst from Sterne Agee.

The company announced they expect Q2 EPS of $0.31 to $0.33 on revenues of $123$126 million vs. analyst consensus expectations of $0.39 on revenues of $136 million. VRA also lowered its FY 2014 guidance, seeing EPS of $1.74$1.78 on revenues of $570$575 million. Analysts were looking for EPS of $1.81 on revenues of $591 million.
