Tale of the Tape

 Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY - Analyst Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for BBBY, as the stock is now down over 8% since Apr 1, 2014.
 
This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the home furnishing retailer has seen 11 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.
 
BBBY currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
 
Some better-ranked stocks in the retail sector include Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS - Snapshot Report), Kingfisher plc (KGFHY) and Tractor Supply Company (TSCO - Analyst Report). While Barnes & Noble and Kingfisher carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Tractor Supply holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
