Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY) is a large retailer of home furnishings. Several business writers have made a "play" on the word "Beyond" as the company has gone "beyond" disappointment in earnings reports for many quarters. It makes big mention of executive compensation policies in its management reports but its executives are way over-copmpensated for poor performance and management shakeups are frequent and deep, including layoffs of over 800 store managers recently.

Among other things, this company is suffering from e-commerce competition from the likes of Amazon, where better prices are available despite BBBY's "price match guarantee" policy. In fact BBBY is listed as a possible takeover target by Amazon.

It has a dizzying array of diversified home furnishing products, sheets, towels, cookware, gadgets, electronic gizmons, etc., in stores which are often somewhat disorganized and chaotic, at least in our opinion. Bargains are hard to find there.

The "big name" for this chain often confuses reviewers like Jim Cramer who stands by his belief the company is a bargain and can make a comeback when interviewed on his show, while his website "Street.Com" lists the company has a strong sell candidate. Analysts have seen too many disappointing earnings, despite high margins compared to other retailers, and are negative while researchers still hold out some hope along with the "gurus" on Val Idea who are neutral.

The stock has dropped so to so low from former heights of glory while the rest of the stock market has soared, that investors are given to wonder if it has become an accidental "value stock". The answer is, "No," it has only an acceptable average range of financial ratios, Zenith Index, etc.

We do not see this stock pulling out of its nosedive any time soon unless it gets targeted as a takeover by some other corporation seeking to merge. The latter is a distinct possibility.

The stock chart continues to establish a series of lower trading ranges with such a strong downtrend that we would not consider it a channeling stock, but rather a "sell and hold" based upon chart pattern. But if you look at earnings over the past five years, they are remarkably consistent which may be why Standard & Poor's has the stock as a "buy." The recent stock drop provides a buying opportunity based upon fundamentals. The big worry is a lot of earnings contraction in the last few quarters. There's a lot of confusion by analysts on exactly what that means or the cause. The company offers pessimistic "guidance" frequently so managers will not be charged with false and misleading statements by class action lawyers, but if earnings stabilize anywhere near present levels, a p/e ratio of 7 or 8 would present a tempting investment rationale right there.

We thought there was a definite lack of concern for shareholders as the company's website is mainly devoted to e-commerce efforts, although there was a CEO Letter outside any glitzy annual report, and the stock does pay a 2.7% dividend. It is in an industry group performing as a whole about as weak as one could get, and may be an "under-estimated fooler" on the rebound if one comes.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

Neural Network Prediction

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
