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 lagged the industry in the past three months due to dismal second-quarter fiscal 2018 results. Both top and bottom lines missed estimates, marking its first earnings and sales miss in the last four quarters. Decline in comps due to lower store transactions hurt the top line. Moreover, its nine-quarter long trend of strained margins due to higher shipping and coupon as well as SG&A expenses is likely to continue in fiscal 2018. Consequently, management trimmed its guidance for fiscal 2018. The lowered view was also the result of the expected impact from Hurricane Florence and tariffs on imports from China. However, the company’s transformation plan and store-growth initiatives raise optimism. The company is also poised to gain from robust sales at customer-facing digital networks in fiscal 2018. Moreover, it remains on track to achieve its three-year financial target of improving EPS by fiscal 2020." (10/1/2018)
  • 2. 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)
