After the Close
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY - Get Report)
Who They Are
: Bed Bath & Beyond is a nationwide operator of superstores selling predominantly better-quality domestics merchandise. It trades an average of 2.4 million shares per day with a marketcap of $16.6 Billion.
BBBY is anticipated to report fantastic first quarter earnings after the market closes on June 20. The consensus estimate is currently 84 cents a share, an improvement of 12 cents, or 14.3%, from 72 cents during the same period last year.
The trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio is 17.5, the mean fiscal year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 15.11, based on earnings of $4.62 per share this year.
For the same fiscal period year-over-year, revenue has improved to $8.76 billion last fiscal year compared to $7.83 billion in the previous year. The bottom line has rising earnings year-over-year of $791.33 million last fiscal year compared to $600.03 million in the previous year.
BBBY stock has gone up, up, and away in a perfect trend-following angle, and the price-to-earnings ratio is low enough to support continued price appreciation. I expect the average analyst price target will get raised as long as BBBY doesn't drop the ball during earnings.
