Third day of large put option blocks in Bed, Bath and Beyond

Third day of large put option blocks in Bed, Bath and Beyond. The stock flat at $15.23 Monday and 10K Feb 15 puts bought for 75c, to open. The interest comes after 20K May 12.5 puts were bought to open Friday. A big trade printed Thursday as well, with paper buying to open 33K Jan 11 puts and 20K Jan 13 puts (while closing 65K Jan 10 puts, 20K Jan 15 calls, and 10K Jan 17.5 calls, which were legs of long strangles opened in September and October - while open interest numbers Friday didn't reflect the closing activity in the Jan 10 puts ,Jan 15 calls, and Jan 17.5 calls, the numbers updated Monday and confirm the color I wrote Thursday). In any event, the interest in Jan 11 puts Jan 13 puts, and May 12.5 puts last week and the block of Feb 15 puts today reflects concerns that recent gains in shares won't hold - the stock rallied 16.6% Thursday last week after earnings.

Loop Capital says Bed Bath Beyond, Amazon price gap widens to historical levels
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Hold rating and $12 price target on Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), saying his periodic pricing study demonstrated that the gap between the company and Amazon.com (AMZN) has widened back to its "historical level". The analyst sees this as a likely negative for the former, but also notes that that discounting has been a challenge in maintaining its gross margins. Chukumba maintains his forecasts on Bed Bath results ahead of next week's earnings, adding that while its stock trades at a discount to historical average levels, the 6.5-times expected forward earnings multiple is "in line" with other "secularly challenged specialty hardlines retailers."

Bed Bath & Beyond activist probability low, 'screens well' for LBO, says Citi
Citi analyst Kate McShane reiterated a Sell rating on Bed Bath & Beyond shares, noting that the company has faced and continues to face significant challenges despite having enacted a number of changes in recent years. She views activist involvement or an LBO as a low probability given the number of challenges faced, but added that Bed Bath "has always screened well" as an LBO candidate. In a leveraged buyout scenario, the company could cut the dividend, shut down stores and create a smaller store format as a private company, McShane said.

Bed Bath & Beyond pricing gap with Amazon narrowed in August, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Hold rating and $15 price target on Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), saying his channel checks indicate a further narrowing of the pricing gap with Amazon (AMZN). The analyst notes the gap in August has shrunk to 13.6% on average vs. 16.9% in July, but also warns that given its position as the "most dynamic retailer" in the U.S. in terms of pricing, Amazon can "quickly and easily lower prices if top-line growth underperforms".

Bed Bath & Beyond downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst Christopher Graja downgraded Bed Bath & Beyond to Hold after lowering his earnings estimates to reflect on ongoing gross margin pressure, declines in store traffic and spending on systems and consultants. The disappointing Q2 results amid a very strong retail environment is a concern, Graja tells investors in a research note. The analyst is no longer confident in management's ability to focus on the company's long-term objectives.
