BBBY STOCK BREAK AFTER PUMP, DISCHARGE
BBBY stock fell 19.6% to 18.55 Thursday, after a significant rally in the past few weeks. Late Wednesday, Ryan Cohen, president of original GameStop Securities, announced plans to sell his Bed Bath & Beyond properties. Late Thursday, BBBY was down 45%, as Cohen revealed he had finished selling his stake.
Moreover, Bed Bath & Beyond, a money-losing home appliances company in the real world with declining sales, has reportedly hired a bankruptcy law firm to help it tackle its unmanageable debt load, Bloomberg reported Thursday night, citing a source.
The BBBY Index is up 132% for the week at Wednesday’s high, and is now significantly lower for the week including after-hours declines.
Recently, on Monday night, Cohen revealed large out-of-the-money BBBY stock options, which helped fuel sharp gains on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Market Rise Analysis
What if a market rally announces a pullback, but the pullback fails to emerge? Major indices have slipped slightly since the S&P 500 nearly hit the 200 line on Tuesday, but none of the major indexes touched the 10-day moving average.
The Dow Jones continues to hold its 200-day moving average, with the S&P 500 and the Russell 2000 index just below this key level.
The resilience of the marching market after a strong stretch is impressive. But further decline will provide an opportunity for the leading stocks to form handles or retreat to the 21-day lines. The major indicators themselves are only 3% or so above the 21-day line.
Individual stocks and sectors vary. Energy stocks come with higher prices, with Exxon Mobil and several other companies flashing buy signals in the past few days. Solar names sound strong while heavy construction, steel, and some transportation plays are being built.
Many chip names are going strong, along with some retailers like BJ’s Wholesale.
Biotech companies like VRTX stocks are pulling back, which could offer some buying opportunities of their own.
The market rally could stop quietly for several days and then go higher, but it could go the other way as well. The Nasdaq traded tightly at the end of last year, again in late March/early April, and in late May/early June. In each case, the taming business ended with a sharp sell-off.
What are you doing now
That’s why investors shouldn’t get too aggressive right now. There are some buying opportunities, and investors should consider them, but don’t add too much exposure to an unclear market trend in the very near term.
You can still consider taking some partial profits along the way, as stocks are still vulnerable to giving up a lot of recent gains amid the sector’s rotation. This is also a way to manage your overall portfolio exposure.
Market dips and moves of different sectors create new settings, so don’t give up on your watchlists.
