Bed Bath & Beyond Stock Price Soars More Than 60% on Ryan Cohen’s Stake

Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. skyrocketed after Ryan Cohen, the billionaire co-founder of pet-supplies retailer Chewy Inc. , disclosed a 9.8% stake through his investment firm in the housewares retailer.

Mr. Cohen, who also serves as chairman of GameStop Corp. , sent a letter to Bed Bath & Beyond’s board Sunday outlining steps it should take to turn the company around. Bed Bath & Beyond in January reported a big sales decline earlier for its third quarter. For months, its stock has largely languished after reaching a 2021 closing high of $ 52.89.
