Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) is the January 2021 stock of the month. These are stocks that I think have a good chance of beating the S&P 500 over the next 5 to 10 years.
Bed Bath & Beyond sells an assortment of domestic merchandise and home furnishings, which operates under the names, such as Bed Bath & Beyond, Harmon, buybuy BABY and Cost Plus World Market.
With a coronavirus vaccine currently in distribution, the theme lately has been about the “reopening stocks”. As I scrutinized stock of the month candidates that will benefit the most from the vaccine, it was difficult to find any whose stock prices were still reasonably priced.
