Investors are bracing for what could be the first drop in quarterly earnings since 2016 but Kevin Mahn of Hennion and Walsh thinks there's a surprise waiting for investors.

Yes, the pace of earnings grow is going to slow.

Yes, the pace of economic growth is going to slow but there's still going to both grow.

Bed Bath and Beyond replaced some board members including two co-founders.

The decision was largely in reaction to pressure coming from two activist investors calling on the entire board and the company CEO to be fired.

Some investors were less than impressed with the changes and pushed the stock 4 percent lower.
