Bed Bath & Beyond shares tank after earnings, sales miss
Shares of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. tanked 12% late Thursday after the retailer reported fiscal first-quarter earnings and sales that missed expectations, citing "softness" in in-store sales. Bed Bath & Beyond said it earned $75.3 million, or 53 cents a share, compared with $122.6 million, or 80 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Sales reached $2.74 billion, flat in relation to the prior-year quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected earnings of 66 cents a share on sales of $2.79 billion. The company saw "strong growth" in digital channels in the quarter, but in addition to in-store softness, it also faced higher direct-to-customer shipping expenses, coupon expenses, and advertising costs during the quarter, it said in a statement. "It remains to be seen whether these challenges were more pronounced in, or unique to, the first quarter due to the smaller sales base in this period, and/or a later start to the summer selling period," it said. Shares ended the regular trading session up 0.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

Cypress investors elect former CEO's board nominees after activist fight
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. investors voted for two board nominees put forth by the company's former chief executive Tuesday, according to preliminary results, booting one director and replacing a chairman who resigned during an activist battle that led to a public fight between Cypress and its founder. Preliminary tabulations showed that J. Daniel McCranie and Camillo Martino were elected to the board with 148 million votes, while Eric Benhamou received about 60 million votes and will not return as a director, according to a statement from CypressFirst, a group formed by founder and former CEO T.J. Rodgers. Rodgers began an activist campaign after former Cypress Chairman Ray Bingham partnered with Chinese investors in a fund that agreed to acquire a Silicon Valley chip firm, Lattice Semiconductor Corp. . Bingham stepped down last week, but the campaign to oust Benhamou against Cypress's wishes continued. Cypress, which confirmed the preliminary voting results in its own release, had said that the entire campaign was Rodgers's attempt to force his way back into the company, but Rodgers sounded a different note in the CypressFirst announcement. "We are grateful to Cypress stockholders for their support of our two candidates," the Cypress CEO for 34 years said. "I can now get back full-time to my work on innovative technologies for the IoT and in alternative energy and let the Cypress directors do their work." Cypress stock fell 0.6% to $13.23 in Tuesday's regular session, but bounced back slightly in after-hours trading.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Oil prices just slipped in to bear-market territory
U.S. crude-oil prices on Tuesday retreated in to bear-market territory, defined as a drop of at least 20% from a recent peak, as the industry continues to be dogged by oversupply concerns. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light, sweet crude futures for delivery in July was trading 2.4% lower at $43.22 a barrel. Measured from its Feb. 21 peak, when crude settled at $54.33 a barrel, WTI is down more than 20%, representing a bear market if it holds to close at those levels, according to FactSet data. The decline in crude comes even as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major oil producers have agreed to extend a production-limit pact into the first quarter of 2018, in order to stem the flow of oil, which has weighed mightily on crude futures. U.S. shale-oil drillers, who aren't a part of the output agreement, have been cited as the main culprit, disrupting OPEC's efforts to stabilize oil prices. In another bearish sign for U.S. crude, oil's short-term trading average, its 50-day moving average, has been slipping below the long-term trading average, or 200-day MA.
