Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) will announce its first quarter financial results on Wednesday after the market closes. According to Estimize, the company is expected to deliver one of the weakest quarters in years.

The retailer’s earnings are quite cyclical, peaking at the fourth quarter every year and dipping in the first quarter. For the first quarter of 2015, management guided flat year-over-year earnings of $0.93 per share on revenue of $2.724 billion. This compares to earnings of $0.93 per share on revenue of $2.657 billion reported in the same quarter last year.

The Street is slightly more bullish, anticipating earnings of $0.94 per share on revenue of $2.746 billion.
