Analysts at Nomura said they were initially disappointed in the small 200k share repurchase in 3Q, but they now believe Limited Brands (NYSE: LTD) is "saving up its cash to give shareholders a Holiday gift – another special dividend".

"The company declared a $1 special dividend in August, and the company's healthy cash position and FCF supports another $2 dividend before year-end. As a reminder, last year they paid a $1 special div in June and $2 in December," said analyst Paul Lejuez.

Nomura Securities has a Buy rating on Limited Brands (NYSE: LTD) with a price target of $55.00.
