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 three months. Moreover, the company is progressing well to accomplish the long-term financial targets. It expects moderating declines in operating profit and earnings per share in fiscal 2018 and 2019. Further, management estimates earnings per share of about $2 for fiscal 2018. Additionally, gains from transformation efforts and other customer-centric initiatives are likely to aid results. Notably, the company has a solid earnings surprise trend, with beat in four of the last five quarters. However, the company has been battling margin pressures for 10 straight quarters now, driven by lower merchandise margin and higher SG&A expenses. In fiscal 2018, margins will continue to remain weak owing to higher spending in the customer value proposition and the digital channels. Further, the company is witnessing soft comps, which is expected to dip 1% in fiscal 2018." (4/10/2019)
  • 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)." (1/7/2019)
