Casper Sleep's stock surges after Wedbush analyst turns bullish for the first timeShares of Casper Sleep Inc. sprang 9.0% higher in premarket trading Monday, after the Wedbush analyst Seth Basham turned bullish for the first time on the mattress-in-a-box company, citing "attractive" valuation and a clear and balanced path forward between revenue growth and profitability. Basham raised his rating to outperform, after being at neutral since he started covering Casper in February 2020, after the stock went public earlier that month. He lifted his stock price target to $10.50 from $10.00. "[Casper Sleep] is in the early stages of capturing market share with its comprehensive focus on sleep and wellness, and its strong brand recognition and broadening product lines and distribution partners gives it the ability to convert more shoppers to customers," Basham wrote in a note to clients. Of the nine analysts surveyed by FactSet, 6 now have the equivalent of buy ratings, one is at sell and two are at hold. The stock had tumbled 33.7% since closing at a one-year high of $10.62 on Feb. 17 through Friday, but was still up 14.5% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 11.3% this year.

Sleep Number misses Q1 sales on supply problemShares of Sleep Number Corp. fell in the extended session Wednesday after the retailer reported first-quarter earnings above Wall Street expectation and raised its guidance, but mentioned a supply snag that hit its sales in the quarter. Sleep Number said it earned $66.6 million, or $2.51 a share, in the quarter, compared with $39.1 million, or $1.36 a share, in the year-ago quarter. Sales rose 20% to $568 million, and same-store sales rose 20%, Sleep Number said. More than $50 million worth of deliveries, or about two weeks, shifted out of the quarter due to "temporary" foam supply constraints, the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet expected EPS of $1.83 on sales of $580 million. Sleep Number raised its full-year 2021 EPS outlook to at least $6.50, compared with a prior outlook of at least $6. The stock ended the regular trading session up 4.2%.
