On Thursday, Bed Bath and Beyond is set to report its second quarter earnings before the markets open. To say the recent quarter has been eventful is certainly an understatement. The company saw a brief short squeeze, followed by a turnaround plan to close 150 stores, and even the unfortunate suicide of its CFO, Gustavo Arnal.
Bed Bath & Beyond is widely expected to report a significant loss for the quarter, while revenues are also expected to decline significantly on a YoY basis. It is definitely not a positive outlook for the stock or the company, and it will be interesting to see how meme stock traders react to the earnings.
Meme stocks were on the rise across the board on Tuesday as the sector bounced higher after weeks of downward pressure. AMC (AMC) and APE (APE) rose by 9.1% and 0.3% respectively, while GameStop (GME) added back 6.7% as well.
