Standpoint Research initiates coverage on Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY) with a Buy. PT $70.00.

Analyst Ronnie Moas comments, "For whoever is looking to play the rebound in housing but is not willing to chase XHB, AMZN, WMT, TGT, LOW, ETH and/or HD, we have identified a name with a favorable risk reward looking out to 2013-2014 and that is Bed, Bath & Beyond BBBY. All of the names mentioned above are up by 20%-50% year-to-date while BBBY is unchanged … down 25% since June 19 including the 20% decline since September 14.

We have been working on this name during the last week after seeing the stock rank # 8 out of 800 names in our November 30 Russell-1000 report according to our 155-variable computer model. The stock scores very high there and passes fundamental and subjective overlays.

For value investors as we are, the stock remains just a bit expensive at 13X trailing twelve months earnings and 11X estimates for next year, but this is a high quality name deserving of a higher multiple. We expect BBBY to re-test the September 2012 high of $71.60 within 12-24 months."
