Lennar, Bed Bath & Beyond earnings — What to know in markets Wednesday

Heidi Chung
·Reporter

Investors will turn their attention to two big earnings reports scheduled for Wednesday, homebuilder Lennar (LEN) and retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY).

Ahead of the opening bell, Lennar is expected to report adjusted earnings of $1.32 per share on $5.47 billion in revenue, according to analysts polled by Bloomberg.

A Lennar model home is seen at a development in Arvada, Colorado September 17, 2014. Lennar Corp, the second largest U.S. homebuilder, reported a better-than-expected 47 percent jump in quarterly profit as it sold more homes at higher prices, and its shares rose as much as 6 percent in premarket trading.

New home sales rose again in August as a the drop in mortgage rates starts to benefit the U.S. housing market. Analysts are expecting that Lennar will exceed 4% growth in net new orders during the third quarter given the rebound in new home demand. Lennar’s results comes as the homebuilders have been outperforming the broader market in a lower interest rate environment. The ETF tracking the homebuilders, XHB, jumped nearly 37% in 2019, while the S&P 500 (^GSPC) is up 20% in the same time period.

Meanwhile, after the market close, retailer Bed Bath & Beyond will release fiscal second-quarter financial results. The embattled retailer has a lot to prove to investors given that the stock has tanked 82% over the past five years and 27% over the past year. Bed Bath & Beyond still has yet to appoint a permanent CEO, and investors will be expecting to hear additional details on the recent board shake up and layoffs.

Analysts polled by Bloomberg expect Bed Bath & Beyond to report adjusted earnings of 24 cents per share on $2.75 billion in revenue. The options market is implying a 19% move in either direction following the report.
