Lentuo International Inc ( LAS), EZCorp Inc ( EZPW), Golfsmith International Holdings Inc ( GOLF), and Bluefly Inc ( BFLY) were all decliners today within the specialty retail industry with 1-800 Inc ( FLWS) being today's featured specialty retail loser. 1-800 Inc fell 15 cents (-5.7%) to $2.50 on average volume. Throughout the day, 186,639 shares of 1-800 Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 148,400 shares., Inc. together with its subsidiaries, operates as a florist and gift retailer in the United States. 1-800 Inc has a market cap of $70.3 million and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 28.6, equal to the average specialty retail industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates 1-800 as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income and revenue growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company has not been very careful in the management of its balance sheet.

On the positive front, Zale Corporation ( ZLC), Lithia Motors Inc ( LAD), Sothebys ( BID), and America's Car-Mart Inc ( CRMT) were all gainers within the specialty retail industry with Netflix Inc ( NFLX) being today's featured specialty retail industry winner.
