11:00 EDTAMZNBed Bath & Beyond climbs after Q2 earnings beat expectations
Shares of home decor retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) are rising after the company's second quarter earnings per share and revenue surpassed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Bed Bath & Beyond's Q2 EPS was $1.17, which was 3c higher than analysts' consensus. The company's Q2 revenue of $2.95B topped analysts' consensus of $2.89B. Same-store-sales for the quarter were up approximately 3.4%. The retailer sees Q3 EPS in the range of $1.17-$1.21, compared with analysts' consensus view of $1.20. Bed Bath & Beyond expects fiscal year 2014 EPS to be between $5.00-$5.08, compared to analysts' view of $5.03. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call, Bed Bath & Beyond said that it was investing "significantly" in its business. It expects FY14 capital expenditures of approximately $350M. The retailer is opening a new distribution facility and is working on a new point of sale system. Bed Bath & Beyond said it is "cautiously optimistic" on its balance for the rest of the year. Next quarter, the company is expecting SSS growth of 2%-3%, and for Q4 it foresees 4%-5% of same-store growth. ANALYST REACTION: Yesterday morning, prior to the release of Bed Bath and Beyond's Q2 earnings report, William Blair analyst Daniel Hofkin downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform. Hofkin cited his continued worries regarding the retailer's above-average exposure to e-commerce competitors. He feels that Bed Bath & Beyond waited too long before developing a strong multichannel platform and that competition from other e-commerce rivals will continue accumulating. He noted that while the company's price premium relative to Amazon (AMZN) has gotten smaller in the past few years, it still is material. Today, UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on the stock to $68 from $62 after Bed Bath & Beyond reported sales that surpassed expectations. Still, he felt that the good sales numbers occurred at the expense of its margin. He expects the retailer's operating margin decrease to impact the company's PE multiple. Lasser believes that the retailer's Q3 and Q4 comp outlook could be "aggressive," but he noted that he won't have much of an idea about those numbers until early January. He keeps a Neutral rating on the stock. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the home furnishings space include Williams Sonoma (WSM), Pier 1 Imports (PIR) and Restoration Hardware (RH). PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, Bed Bath & Beyond rose $3.99, or 6.4%, to $66.68.
