A mediocre retailer in a narrow and uninspiring segment of the market. Highly susceptible to price competition and is being made irrelevant by Amazon. Declining cash position will put pressure on the company as debt expands and lenders require much higher interest rates for the increased risk of a declining retailer. No one enjoys shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond and they have no customer loyalty. Their 20% coupons are antiquated and a relic of the past, just like Bed Bath and Beyond will soon be. A future Borders Bookstore and Circuit City. They are dead money and will be gone in 5-10 years

Bed Bath & Beyond faces challenges from Amazon and Wayfair, but I think they are better positioned than the market gives them credit for. They sell a lot of things which people want to touch before buying. That puts a limit to how much of their business will shift online. They are also continuing to build out their own online store.

The housing recovery still has plenty of room to grow, and BBBY benefits from new housing starts as well as intergenerational housing shifts. They also have a dominant market share in wedding registry, which is a good business because it's less price sensitive. Macy's and Sears closing stores is also good for BBBY.

Bed Bath & Beyond seems like a potential acquisition target, especially for a private equity buyer. It currently has 60% debt to equity, and could probably support 200%. Private equity has bought several specialty retail companies (EXPR, HOTT, RUE, BLKIA, etc) at higher multiples than BBBY in the last few years.
