What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bed Bath & Beyond stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bed Bath & Beyond stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bed Bath & Beyond outperformed the industry in the past month, thanks to progress on reaching its long-term financial targets. The company expects moderating operating profit and earnings per share declines in fiscal 2018 and 2019. It also anticipates witnessing earnings per share growth by fiscal 2020. Further, the company boasts a solid surprise trend, with earnings beat in four of the last five quarters, including the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Though sales missed estimates for the second straight quarter, it grew year over year due to gains from transformation efforts and other customer-centric initiatives. The company’s store-growth initiatives and shareholder-friendly moves are also commendable. However, the company is witnessing soft comps for a while now, which is expected to inch down 1% in fiscal 2018. Also, the company's long trend of strained margins, owing to higher spending, is likely to persist in fiscal 2018." (1/14/2019) 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We model +1.8% sales growth, or below BBBY’s +MSD guidance, based on – 0.3% comps (vs. -0.6% in +2.2% calendar shift contribution that adds an extra week of holiday sales in the quarter (vs. +3.3% Street). This calendar shift reverses in Q4 and BBBY laps a 53rd week (in Q4 FY17), which drives our -8.1% Q4 sales estimate (vs. guide of -HSD) despite what appears to be a solid holiday season for the industry. We expect Q3 gross margin pressure of – 100bps (28th straight declining quarter) driven by high couponing, expansion of loyalty initiatives (BEYOND+, and higher mix of lower margin online sales. While cost reduction efforts are underway, we model higher Q3 ad spend and ongoing SG&A deleverage to drive -205bps of EBIT margin contraction (26th straight declining quarter)."
