Why such a negative stance on BBBY stock? The Goldman Sachs analyst believes Bed Bath & Beyond is going to have a hard time bringing back customers in the second half of the year. She attributes this to increased competition from market rivals.
The update from McShane includes new adjusted EBITDA estimates. The firm now expects adjusted EBITDA to come in at a loss of $470 million, as compared to its prior estimate of a loss of $326 million. It also lowered estimates for adjusted EBITDA in fiscal 2023 and 2024 to a loss of $28 million and a positive $64 million, respectively.

For the record, this is a reiteration of McShane’s price target for BBBY stock. It also comes alongside a reiterated “sell” rating for the shares. The analysts consensus for BBBY is $5.13 with a “sell” rating.
Investors will also note shares of BBBY stock were trading for $6.09 each when markets closed on Friday. That has the $2 price prediction representing a roughly 67% downside compared to its prior close price. The analysts consensus price target expects about a 16% drop for the shares.
