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. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We view these items as silver linings in what shaped up to be an otherwise disappointing quarter. Q1 comps of -0.6% fell short of our/Consensus estimates of -0.5%/+0.1% (and buyside expectations for a comp beat), which we believe to be particularly notable considering otherwise strong U.S. retail sales in May (which was included in BBBY’s Q1). BBBY also reiterated its FY18 guidance, including expectations for +LSD comp growth (implying at least +1.5% growth for the rest of the year), which we believe hinges primarily on BBBY’s ability to capture sales from closed Toys R Us locations. While improving transparency and refreshed management team are incremental positives, we remain bearish on 2018 with aspirational comp guidance, low margin and profit visibility (we model -30% EPS declines) and considerable reinvestment ahead. Reiterate Underperform." (6/27/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bed Bath & Beyond remains well on track with various transformation efforts to become the customers’ first preference. The company is focused on improving operational efficiency, which includes transformation of information technology group and related business processes to meet consumers’ evolving demand. Notably, management expects solid sales across customer-facing digital channels to continue in fiscal 2018. Further, the company’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 results marked its second straight earnings and sales beat. However, the stock has lagged the industry in the past three months owing to a soft comps and margins trend in recent quarters. Moreover, it has a seven-quarter long trend of strained margins due to higher shipping and coupon expenses, which along with a rise in SG&A is likely to hurt results in fiscal 2018. Consequently, the company issued a bleak view for fiscal 2018." (6/12/2018)
