    Barchart.com's Chart of the Day - Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) for May 30, 2012

    To access recent archived Chart of the Day reports, please go to:

    The "Chart of the Day" is Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which showed up on Tuesday's Barchart "All-Time High" list. Bed Bath & Beyond on Tuesday posted a new record high of $74.67 and closed up 2.10%. TrendSpotter has been long since May 11 at $71.55. Bed Bath & Beyond was last featured by "Chart of the Day" as of the close on Nov 8, 2011 of $63.44. In recent news on the stock, Argus on May 17 reiterated its Buy rating on BBBY and maintained its $80 target, saying it is positive about the company's acquisition of Cost Plus because the deal will enable BBBY to add some excitement to its stores with new merchandise. Credit Suisse on May 11 upgraded BBBY to Outperform from Neutral and raised its target to $91 from $75 because the Cost Plus acquisition adds growth, improves selection, and reduces sourcing costs. Bed Bath & Beyond, with a market cap of $17 billion, is a nationwide operator of superstores selling predominantly better quality domestics merchandise and home furnishings typically found in better department stores.
