#4. Bed Bath & Beyond
Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) were: down -5.04% in the past trading week.
On social media, shareholders of the so called ‘meme stock’ continue to buy the stock despite talks of bankruptcy.
The company edged closer to a bankruptcy filing in late January after the retailer said it had received a default notice from JPMorgan Chase & Co., its loan agent, and warned it didn’t have enough funds to make payments.
Creditors are demanding immediate repayment of the company’s debt after it breached the terms of a credit line, according to a regulatory filing Thursday, per Bloomberg.
“Generally, in situations like this where a company defaults on their loan agreement our experience is, if they don’t come to an agreement with their lenders, the likelihood of a bankruptcy filing within the next 30 days is relatively high,” said Dennis Cantalupo, chief executive officer of Pulse Ratings, a credit-rating and consulting firm.
BBBY stock is up +1.73% this year-to-date.
