Revenue declined to $3.2 billion from $3.4 billion while comparable-store sales growth slowed to 1.7% versus 2.5% a year earlier.

Bed, Bath & Beyond shares slumped 4% in after-hours trading.

$IMPV is getting knocked 34% after issuing an earnings warning. It closed at 49.50 and is currently trading at 32.60, lows not seen since December of 2012. The stock saw some interesting small lot put action on the offer side around 11am, with about $80k in premium dropped on the puts. They should be worth a minimum of $560k this am, or 7x if the stock opens where it's currently trading the pre. How timely. Check the included screenshot for more.
