The company is trading at the $64.69 level. The share price is up 6% since it reported its first-quarter results in which revenue and EPS both missed estimates. The share price initially dropped below $55 but has since bounced back and is now trading higher than the June announcement.
In early July, Bed Bath & Beyond announced a $2 billion share buyback scheme which will be completed in February 2015. The move highlights the confidence in the company’s ‘financial outlook and cash flow generation’ says the CEO Steven Temares.
