    By Regan Barua - August 23, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, BBY, WSM

    The positive correlation between the stock price of home decor retailers and the growth rate of the U.S. housing industry can be seen through the stock price appreciation of three home decor retailers-- Bed Bath &Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY), Best Buy (NYSE: BBY), and Williams-Sonoma (NYSE: WSM). Year-to-date, Bed Bath & Beyond’s stock price has appreciated nearly 33%, whereas Best Buy and Williams-Sonoma have recorded YTD stock price appreciation of more »

  • Should you furnish your portfolio with this retailer?

    By Tushar Agarwal - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, DEST, PIR

    Bed, Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) sells products like bed linens, bath items, kitchen textiles, home furnishings among various others. Some of these products like bed linens, baby products etc are such that people will buy them without considering the world economy. This is evident from the fact that the stock passed the recession scratch free trading around $30 in 2007 and $40 post recession.

  • J.C. Penney Isn't Worth the Risk

    By Sam Mattera - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, FL, JCP

    I invested in J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP) back in March, reasoning that the selloff was overdone, and that shares presented an interesting risk/reward opportunity.

    I finally relented and sold my stake early last week. Rumors about a declining business, combined with an unprecedented level of management dysfunction, make the stock too difficult to hold.

  • These Are the Retail Stocks to Own

    By Sam Mattera - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, KIRK, WSM

    For investors, retail has been a dangerous sector. Last week, American Eagle Outfitters sparked a sell-off in the teen retail space when it slashed its outlook significantly. Meanwhile, department store icons like Sears and J.C. Penney are struggling to survive.

    But not all retail names have performed poorly. One sector in particular -- home goods -- has been on fire all year. Given the strength of the housing market, the rally more »

  • Three Companies That Will Perform Well No Matter What

    By Ted Cooper - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, ORCL, SNDK

    Economic uncertainty has caused many businesses to remain uncommitted to future plans. Instead of investing heavily in growth or scaling down operations in preparation for disaster, a lot of companies are hoarding cash while they wait to see what happens next.

    It is unclear whether the economy will make a significant improvement or plunge into recession once again -- and even less clear when the move will happen -- but, eventually, something more »

  • Look Beyond Home Improvement Retailers

    By Kyle Colona - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, HD, LOW

    The housing market recovery has been good for home improvement retailers and the home goods sector as well.

    As has previously been reported, the housing market is in the early stages of a shaky recovery. Inventories remain tight even though rising interest rates may have recently caused a pullback in homebuilders’ share prices. Interest rates have climbed by 100 basis points in the past month or so. In other words more »

  • A sneaky way to play the housing recovery.

    By Tushar Agarwal - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, DEST, PIR

    The National Retail Federation forecasts the U.S. retail industry will rise 3.4% in 2013 whereas the housing sector will continue to improve on strong fundamentals for growth. The importance of the housing market cannot be underestimated; remember it was the burst of the housing bubble which led to the drastic fall of the financial system in 2008.

    The housing market is today in recovery mode as evidenced by more »

  • Amazon: Big and Getting Bigger

    By Jayson Derrick - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: AMZN, BBBY, TGT

    Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) presents a credible threat to brick and mortar retailing, and many retail and consumer investors still do not fully appreciate the fact that Amazon.com is the biggest threat to retailers and the most transformative force in recent history.

    Eighth largest retailer

    Amazon.com became a top 25 retailer in 2010, in 2012 the company moved up the ranks to 11th largest, and with projected more »

  • Retail Industry is in For a Run

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 27, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, COST, TIF

    The retail industry has advanced by about 29% this year, but I see more gains ahead. The economic recovery may be progressing relatively slow, but I see that steady growth as a way to keep inflation down and avoid a double-dip recession.

    That means many profits ahead for firms invested in the retail sector, as spending power warms up before hitting full stride. The following companies all represent great firms more »

  • Don’t Take a Long Walk off a Short Pier

    By Dan Moskowitz - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, PIR, WSM

    Pier 1 Imports (NYSE: PIR) has seen stock appreciation of approximately 240% over the past three years. It has outperformed both Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) and Williams-Sonoma (NYSE: WSM) over the same period, which have seen gains of approximately 99% and 137%, respectively. However, this doesn’t mean Pier 1 Imports is likely to be the best investment option going forward.

  • Up 18% and Just Getting Started

    By Chad Henage - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: AMZN, BBBY, PIR, WSM

    Not many companies are able to fall significantly behind their competition when it comes to technology and still compete. In fact, most investors look for companies that are using technology to its fullest to stay ahead of their peers. With that being said, there is one retailer that seems clearly behind the times, and yet the stock could be a great value for investors. If you are looking to capitalize more »

  • Companies Doing Well Despite Signs of Weakening Economic Growth

    By Eileen Rojas - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, FDO, F, GM

    While the U.S. economy continues to chug along, there were signs of weakening growth in the second quarter. The Commerce Department reported that June retail sales increased 0.4%, not quite the 0.8% average growth estimated by 82 economists surveyed by Bloomberg.

    Demand did not change much from May, and the recent data reported lead to a downward revision of May’s retail sales, from 0.6% to more »

  • Is This Retailer a Good Pick Now?

    By Anh HOANG - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, TGT, WMT

    Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) has been a good stock for its shareholders, rising more than 35.2% and beating the S&P 500’s return of nearly 17.90%.

    Global Insight believes the total U.S. home improvement market reached $275 billion in 2012, up from the $261 billion in 2011. The market is expected to jump to $345 billion by 2017, with rising U.S. home ownership continuing to drive the market. So what's the best way to take advantage?

  • This Stock Is a Sleeper

    By Dan Moskowitz - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, TGT, WMT

    Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) has outperformed Target (NYSE: TGT) and Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) year to date, as well as over a three-year time frame. It also managed to grow during the height of The Great Recession. This is a testament to its quality management and strong brand.

  • Is This Housing-Related Play Still a Good Value?

    By Lee Samaha - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, PIR, WSM

    With the housing market seemingly at the start of a multi-year recovery, the market has been keen to bid up any stock related to the sector. Usually this is for good reason, because the earnings outlook is improving for these companies. However, in the case of homeware retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY), I think the market is giving it the benefit of the doubt over the prospects for its more »

The numbers follow an impressive first-quarter report from fellow housing retailer Home Depot (NYSE: HD)

  • Bed & Bath: Lagging Behind Its Peers

    By Awais Iqbal - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, M, TGT, WMT

    Home furnishing industry outlook

    Although the ferocity of the competition is expected to continue, boosting consumer confidence, higher disposable income and rising home ownership levels are projected to lead to the industry's recovery in the upcoming years. Specifically, the industry is anticipated to gain from consumers seeking out for higher-quality products and customer service, therefore allowing the industry players to secure a competitive edge against mass merchandisers who have more »
