Bed Bath & Beyond


shareholders face a growing risk that they could be wiped out in bankruptcy, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the retailer’s stock this week.

Bed Bath stock (ticker: BBBY) rose another 69%, to $3.49 a share, in Wednesday trading, which brings this week’s gains to 166%. The stock is now trading at early-December levels, which is noteworthy given that the company’s management said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing last week that it was considering filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy generally plays out poorly for stockholders.
