Stock of the Month: Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY)

Written by Donnie Nguyen

January 19, 2021

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.


Bed Bath & Beyond stock fits the bill. As of Friday’s close (1/15/2021), BBBY stock closed at $25.60, down 68.3% from it’s all-time high of $80.82.

In this video, I first discuss why I’m bullish on Bed Bath & Beyond. Then I share my game plan for investing in Bed Bath & Beyond stock. 

This is also going to be my final stock of the month pick as I pursue creating other content. But you can still see all of my past picks and results here.

Here are some portfolio guidelines we Wolves try to live by:

  • Thou shalt not hold more than 35% in any one particular sector
  • Thou shalt not invest more than 10% of principal into one individual stock
  • Thou shalt make small purchases. The general rule of thumb is to spend no more than 2% of your portfolio on a single purchase and build up your position over time.

These portfolio guidelines have helped me tremendously through my 20+ years of investing.
