Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY), has increased by almost 42% over the last five trading days (one week) and currently stands at around $22. In comparison, the broader S&P500 index increased only marginally over the same period. The home products retailer just announced a shift in its business model that includes a key tie-up with Kroger, a national supermarket chain. Under the collaboration, BBBY will offer an extensive selection of its most popular home and baby products to Kroger customers via Kroger.com, and eventually at a number of its grocery stores. In addition, the retailer will also begin a small-scale store-within-a-store pilot project sometime next year. All these moves appear to be in line with Bed Bath & Beyond’s strategy to reinvigorate the company’s struggling business. While investors’ excitement contributed to the retailer’s stock price surge post the tie-up news, short-sellers also created a short squeeze soon after that which propelled BBBY stock price even higher.
