What are the fine users of patrick.net, like Patrick, mell, Rin, etc, thinking of the latest meme stock, BBBY?

Full disclosure, I own 42 shares, but 99.5% of my net-worth are in other stocks.

The BBBY revenue chart is more like "Bloodbath and Beyond":

Still might be undervalued though.

I think you are right...it's a bloodbath. The book value per a share is -2.77.

It's a garbage stock, but the meme kids can temporarily pump it to whatever they want. They all were left holding the bag on their previous plays.

Reminds of pier one imports - a company that sold lots of high markup discretionary junk.

Of course, they were a working business, but the 2008 crash hit them hard because they were the type of company that sells shit people dont need during a recession. Their stock was falling badly during the few years leading up to 2008 (not sure why), and then when the economy crashed, it fell off a cliff. I'm talking a fall like from 500 down to under a dollar. It was a cliffhanger, and in the final days before bankruptcy they secured unexpected financing needed to keep them alive, and over the next few years the stock recovered back to the previous peak.

I always kicked myself for not buying when it was at 0.13 (I almost pressed the buy button), as it would have been a ~4000% gain or so. But then again, a stock doesnt fall that hard unless everyone thinks its a goner for sure.

It was an early meme stock. The yahoo finance chat channel was full of pumpers and noobs.

I went into a store once to buy a pillow.
I would never buy the stock.

I bought an analog clock from Bed Bath and Beyond and I was happy they had it. Wal-mart didn't have it.

I think investing in BBBY is as valid as Ryan Cohen's investment thesis. Ryan has experience with retail as oppose to jumping into something like like AMC and GME. I'm still scratching my head on why Ryan is bothering with GME in a managerial role.

Clambo, why were you not happy with the store?
7   clambo   2022 Aug 18, 5:23am  

1337irr, I was happy in the store, but I didn't see them selling anything or doing anything unique enough to interest me as an investor.

Actually as stores go, it's nice enough in there. You can find similar stuff at places like Target, Kohls, Walmart, Costco, Amazon.

So, Bed bath and beyond have competition for their product/service.

This 20-year-old econ major raised $25 million to buy a stake in Bed Bath & Beyond and then sold it for $110 million a month later

Jake Freeman, who is studying applied mathematics and economics at the University of Southern California, bought 5 million shares in Bed Bath & Beyond in July at just under $5.50 a share. He owned around 6% of the company as a result of his investment.

On Tuesday, the stock price soared to more than $27 a share. Regulatory filings reviewed by Financial Times showed that Freeman sold more than $130 million worth of stock using his TD Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers accounts. ...

Freeman said that the initial $25 million stake that he bought in the company was made possible by raising money from friends and family.

I suppose there are opportunities in every stock, but how many people can raise $25 million from friends and family?

Hey, maybe he’s friends with Hunter Biden and got the dough from some crooked Chinese guys?
11   Tenpoundbass   2022 Aug 19, 10:54am  

My buddy has been on Blood Bath and Beyond tare, about how they are going to rally for the next six days.
They are now down to $11.00.
All the while he's been laughing at me, and poo pooing my Party City pick, back in July. When I said at $1.03 it was a good buy. I figured it's got at least $3.00's worth of play in it over the next three to six months. .
I like cheap stocks, they only have to move a few cents to measure double digit points. Unlike hot tech stocks at hundreds $ or even thousands $ a share. They don't tend to jump 20% or more several days in a row. Double your money is double your money, whether it's an Apple stock that doubles in a few months, or if it's Party City that doubles in a month.
Though lets face it, most large stocks don't double, unless they split and got so cheap everyone went on a buying spree.

BBBY to the moon!

BRAD SMITH: Switching gears as well, but kind of staying in retail, Bed, Bath & Beyond shares on the move following a report by the Wall Street Journal that the company has secured financing to shore up its liquidity. According to the Journal, the company told prospective lenders on Tuesday that it had selected a loan facilitator. Bed, Bath & Beyond has yet to provide further details on the loan. Shares moving up by about 27% here pre-market, and this is liquidity that the company needs right now.

BRIAN SOZZI: Yes, they do. They ended the most recent quarter $107 million in cash, I think $200 million on tap in their credit line. That was as of June 29 when the filing hit. So they may have tapped that credit line on shore. I reached out to Bed, Bath & Beyond. They said this. Hi, Brian. As previously shared, we'll provide an update at the end of the month. Thank you. Or I'm sorry-- this month. Thank you.

And I just have to-- just try to figure out what is going on inside this company. They had a chance last week, I think, to come out here and offer shares for sale to raise cash with the stock rising, and they just don't seem to be reading the room and understanding the moment and how much pressure they are in. That's not what I wanted to hear from Bed, Bath & Beyond. I get they have to be careful, but still, your stock has been slaughtered. Let's step up here. Understand what's going on here. You have a lot of people that have lost their shirt over the past six months. Do a better job.

(Bloomberg) -- Shares of meme stocks like Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. might be going bonkers again, but that doesn’t mean investors need to totally steer clear of them.

That’s according to Jeremy Siegel, professor emeritus of finance at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, who says such volatile stocks are gambling vehicles more than anything else, though the speculative bets can still be a small part of younger investors’ portfolios.

Siegel, along with Jeremy Schwartz, global chief investment officer at WisdomTree, joined the latest “What Goes Up” podcast to discuss that, as well as the state of the economy, inflation and markets.

Below are condensed and lightly edited highlights of the conversation. Click here to listen to the full podcast, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen.

Q: In recent years, we’ve seen the growth of retail traders as an important force in markets, what we call the meme stocks. How are you thinking about that?

Siegel: Let’s take AMC, Bed Bath & Beyond, GameStop. Their total market value is what? One half of 1% of stocks or less. And even if you add a few more memes, you’re still getting an absolutely infinitesimal part of the market. Now, they may look like there’s a lot of fireworks -- there’s a lot of movement. If you’re into gambling and you like that, fine go to it. A year ago I said, somewhat conservatively, I do not think they will be rewarding to long-term investors. They’re gambling vehicles more than anything else.

But I always recommend to young people, if you want to play with 10% or 15% of your portfolio in those games, fine. But, put the other 85% into some sort of an indexed long-term fund that will have meaning for you when you finally become an adult.

BBBY to the MOON

I'll be at 200 shares on Monday AND it will still be less than 10% of my portfolio.

So the CFO just did a header off the company tower in NYC. I’m thinking SHORT THAT STOCK!

I exited my position after losing 50%. I buy for fundamentals generally, not memes. Still, the CFO losing his life from suicide or other means makes this event tragic. I wish his family the best.

There is only one thing I strongly suspect, BBBY will open red and it will be VERY red on Tuesday morning.
18   Shaman   2022 Sep 4, 12:55pm  

It was highly inconsiderate of that asshole to suicide on a Saturday of a three day weekend. Now how is a self-respecting trader to get his bets in a timely manner?

You can get new jobs. I highly doubt most suicides of higher level people are due solely to their work. My BIL hung himself after getting a promotion at an easy administrator job at his school district. If he stuck with it probably $100k a year pension by 55. It's usually something family related, personal finances, drug usage or flat out mental instability.

It's why I don't keep up with the Jones'. Someone is always doing better than you. You make you happy. Don't worry about others.

That CFO must have had information that would lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton.

Someone needs to make a meme with the My pillow guy at this guy's grave.

BBBY down in Pre-market:
$7.38/sh -$1.25 (-14.48%)

I be tempted, but I want to respect the CFO's family.
25   zzyzzx   2022 Sep 6, 5:16am  

BBBY holders just remember how fast the CFO dropped!

27   zzyzzx   2022 Sep 6, 5:50am  

This isn't a stock you want to jump into without doing research.
36   zzyzzx   2022 Sep 6, 9:46am  

So far this stock is holding up way better than I anticipated.

Women. That's who shops there. They're not logical. Stock price won't be logical regardless of the weirdos trying to play games with it.

There is no logic in investments at this point, especially in a women priced stock. Social media can move it in a moments notice.
39   Booger   2022 Sep 7, 4:43am  

Bed Bath and Beyond and Brandon are very similar. Losers with No Energy. Bankrupting a retail store and our Nation. They have a lot in common.
