Read MoreHide Full Article

Bed Bath & Beyond continues to be impacted by sluggish mall traffic and high promotional costs. Further, due to its exposure to global markets, the company remains prone to various risks associated with international operations like currency headwinds. These factors have led the company to report dismal top line results for almost 12 quarters now. Though the company reiterated its outlook for fiscal 2016, its soft comps and weak margins trends are expected to hurt results throughout fiscal 2016. Estimates have witnessed a negative trend ahead of the company’s third quarter results. Also, the company has a record of negative surprises in recent quarters. However, Bed Bath & Beyond remains focused on strategic initiatives like store expansion, eCommerce enhancement and improvement of customer services, which remain growth catalysts. Moreover, the company’s constant shareholder-friendly moves remain noteworthy.
