    New CEO Mark Tritton Could Very Well Be a BBBY Stock Catalyst

    Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) has been one of the big victims of this year's Retail Armageddon, the shares falling from an April high of $19.41 to a low of $7.40 in August. But BBY Stock is enjoying a pop of over $2 per share after announcing that Australia-born Mark Tritton, who had been chief merchandising officer for Target (NYSE:TGT), is becoming its CEO.Source: Shutterstock The reaction is a tribute to Target CEO Brian Cornell, who joined in 2014 after a computer hack took down his predecessor. Target now trades at more than twice its level of mid-2017, helped in part by store brands created under Tritton.Can Tritton really take Bed Bath beyond? Can he step up as CEO, or did he reach his full potential as an assistant coach?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Mark Tritton and BBBY StockThe 55-year-old Tritton, who was earning $5 million per year at Target, and learned his stuff at Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) before jumping to Cornell's team in 2016. He has also worked for Timberland and Nike (NYSE:NKE). * 10 Super Boring Stocks to Buy With Super Safe Returns Bed, Bath & Beyond has been looking for a CEO since May, when Steven Temares stepped down.Tritton made his reputation at Target with house brands which compete with name brands on style. They have names like A New Day, Goodfellow & Co., Project 62 and Cat & Jack. That last is a kids' brand that saw $2 billion in sales during its first year and became a "trip driver," a brand that drove people specifically to the store.Walmart's (NYSE:WMT) strategy, by contrast, has been to buy existing brands like Bonobo's and Bare Necessities. Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ:COST) has put all its effort into delivering high quality through its Kirkland brand. Amazon.Com (NASDAQ:AMZN) has taken a traditional route of value through its Amazon Basics line. The Turnaround Challenge for BBBY StockThe challenge at Bed Bath & Beyond is like the one Cornell faced five years ago. The company has averaged $12 billion in sales per year but has endured four straight quarters of losses, leading it to announce 60 store closings so far in 2019. Sales at stores open over a year sank 6.7% in the most recent quarter.If Tritton can eke out even a small profit, however, BBBY stock can rise quickly. Its current market cap is barely $1.5 billion, and it currently has a 17 cent per share dividend yielding 6.84%.There is almost $1 billion in cash on the books, and long-term debt is just $1.5 billion. Its strengths already had analysts nibbling on it. Two of them jumped to "Buy" recommendations over the last three months, although most remain in the non-committal "hold" camp.The real problem at BBBY should be right up Tritton's alley. Its merchandise is mediocre. It's an old-fashioned "category killer" in the mold of Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) (which could be good) or the late Toys R Us (which would be bad). The website looks great, if it's 2005, with brand names on sale prominently displayed.The company launched its first private house brand, Bee & Willow Home, early this year, with plans to launch five more brands by the end of next year. The Bottom Line on BBBY StockThe BBBY challenge sets up very well for Tritton, if the economy holds up.The company has already taken its first step into private brands. Its balance sheet is reasonably healthy. What it seems to need is pizzazz, and that's what Tritton is known for.Joining the crowd that's nibbling on the stock is speculation, but it's a reasonable one, assuming Tritton really deserves credit for Target's turnaround.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    Uber to Acquire Chile Grocery Startup Walmart Failed to Buy

    (Bloomberg) -- Uber Technologies Inc. plans to buy a majority stake in online grocer Cornershop, a deal designed to extend its geographic reach and bolster profits by bundling food delivery with rides.The move, which is subject to regulatory approval, could end uncertainty for the Santiago, Chile-based startup backed by Accel and other venture investors. Walmart Inc. announced its intention more than a year ago to purchase Cornershop outright for $225 million and re-sell the company to its Mexican subsidiary, only to have Mexican regulators oppose the move in June for antitrust reasons.Cornershop is the largest home delivery platform in Mexico and Chile. The app allows users to order groceries from a variety of stores such as Costco Wholesale Corp., Petco Holdings Inc., Walmart, bakeries and pharmacies, and have everything delivered at once, usually within 90 minutes. The items usually carry a higher price tag on top of the delivery fee. The four-year-old startup also operates in Peru and Canada. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.The arrangement could play a significant role in Uber’s strategy of layering more profitable services atop ride-sharing. Since the company’s disappointing initial public offering, the share price has dropped more than 30% and Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi has sought to reassure investors that Uber is focused on turning a profit and continuing to grow.When Walmart attempted to buy Cornershop, analysts saw the purchase as a way for the retailer to increase its e-commerce presence with the help of an established app that brought a giant database of users and more importantly, its consumer patterns.“It’s already positioned, it knows the market well and it was going to accelerate this process for Walmart,” said Marisol Huerta, an analyst at Banco Ve Por Mas. “It’s the same strategy for Uber.”The acquisition by Uber means the San Francisco-based company will expand on its Eats offering with the ability to deliver not only prepared food from restaurants, but a wide set of groceries, Huerta said. “They’ll be entering a new market but they’ll already have a big data base and the structure to operate in it.”Uber says it expects the deal to close in early 2020. Cornershop will continue to operate under its current leadership, reporting to a board with majority Uber representation.“Whether it’s getting a ride, ordering food from your favorite restaurant, or soon, getting groceries delivered, we want Uber to be the operating system for your everyday life,” Khosrowshahi said in a statement announcing the deal.(Updates with comments from analyst in the sixth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Lizette Chapman in San Francisco at lchapman19@bloomberg.net;Andrea Navarro in Mexico City at anavarro30@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Mark Milian at mmilian@bloomberg.net, Molly Schuetz, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Costco Wholesale Corporation Updates on Children’s Sleepers

    Costco Wholesale is committed to protecting workers in its supply chains.  In furtherance of this commitment, the Company confirms that it has acted appropriately relative to children’s sleepers that have been referenced in the media. The sleepers that had been on sale at Costco until very recently were sourced from factories outside the Xinjiang region and without connection to the entity that was recently named as the subject of a detention order by the Customs and Border Patrol.  Those factories were the subject of favorable audits for labor practices and have not been accused of wrongdoing. Costco’s supplier also sourced sleepers from a factory in Xinjiang, but Costco has not received any of those sleepers.  That factory, too, was the subject of favorable audits that showed the absence of forced labor and other favorable results.
