Hudson’s Bay Co. (TSX:HBC) stock has been nearly uninvestable over the last few years amid strong headwinds that continue to mount for the broader basket of big-box retailers. The company has been slow to adapt, and although the Retail Strategy and Transformation Plan brought forth by new CEO Helena Foulkes may seem like a means to turn the ship around, the fact of the matter remains that the younger generation of shoppers like millennials just aren’t interested in roaming around a massive big-box retailer like Hudson’s Bay.

Hudson ' s Bay Co . ( TSX : HBC ) has a new CEO, but is the company beyond saving? Foulkes clearly has a wealth of experience when it comes to brick-and-mortar retail; however, a pharmacy chain and a department store are two completely different beasts.

Shares of Hudson’s Bay plunged as low as $9.61 to start the day before rebounding back to the mid-$10 levels to finish the day down by just 1.51%. It appears the general public is somewhat optimistic about management’s strategic direction, despite the abysmal results, as suggested by the huge intraday movement in shares.

The negative momentum could be too much to handle

Although Hudson’s Bay is one of Canada’s oldest and historic retailers, it’s clear that Canadian consumers have moved on to more innovative retailers that are better catered for the modern consumer.

As the negative momentum continues to steepen for Hudson’s Bay, it’s not too far-fetched to think that the company could become the next big-box chain to go belly up over the next five years, as the pressures continue to mount.

While Foulkes may have a wealth of experience as a turnaround specialist, I’m not at all optimistic about the revival plan at this point in time and think that significant investment in turning the retail business around could eat into the value of the underlying real estate assets, as they’re sold to finance transformation initiatives that I believe have a high chance of failing.

Hudson ’ s Bay Co . ( TSX : HBC ) released its fourth-quarter earnings on Wednesday, and while the company was finally able to post a profit, it still fell short of meeting This enabled earnings the quarter to finish at million, which is well up from the 2 million loss that HBC incurred a year ago.

Until convincing evidence of a turnaround works its way into the financial results, I’d continue to avoid the stock.

Canada’s answer to Amazon.com

You’ve probably never even heard of this up-and-coming e-commerce powerhouse headquartered in Eastern Ontario…

But, despite coming public just last year, it’s already helping the likes of Budweiser… Tesla… Subway… and Red Bull move $9.9 BILLION (and counting) worth of goods online each year.

And now it’s caught the eye of the legendary investor who got behind Amazon.com in 1997 — just before it shot up over 23,000% and made investors like you and me rich beyond their wildest dreams.
