Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
The home-goods retailer posted a huge earnings miss, delivering just 53 cents a share when the analysts were expecting 66 cents a share. Making matters worse, the company also saw a 2% decline in same-store sales.
It seems the better Bed Bath does online, the more it cannibalizes foot traffic in its stores. The company's free shipping offer over $29 is also a double-edge sword, as customers below $29 turn to Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report and orders over $29 see a big hit to profits with free shipping applied.
