Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) are currently trading below 19$ at the time of writing this article. The shares are down over 17% after hours. The retails traders have been all over BBBY since the market open today. As per morning star report, With a higher representation of owned brands than in the past (accounting for 25% of sales in 2021), gross margin metrics prove more stable than we forecast. Ongoing closures of underperforming stores could help lift the profitability of the business faster than we anticipate as better performing stores make up a greater proportion of the fleet. Less discretionary categories such as linens, towels, and cookware offer some resiliency amid macroeconomic cyclicality. Registries across bridal, baby, and gift have historically provided a steady stream of customers.”
Here’s is what the bears have to say “With another CEO search underway, strategic initiatives could change ahead, altering the timing of Bed Bath’s return to profitability. Current inventory management issues could also wind down over a longer duration than expected. New homeowners represent a significant portion of home-related purchases, tying results to the housing market and home turnover, which can be volatile. Low customer switching costs, along with the proliferation of e-commerce and mass-merchant peers, should pressure long-term traffic and margin trends.”
It will be interesting how the stock will open up on Thursday morning. The options exhibited high volatility all day long and are expected to remain volatile into Thursday.
