Shares of Pier 1 Imports (NYSE:PIR) are up today after the company beat analyst expectations in its fourth-quarter earnings on both the top and bottom lines. Meanwhile, Bed Bath and Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) shares fell today after guidance for the new fiscal year was weak, with one analyst saying that the company was "searching for meaning."

However, in this segment from Thursday's installment of Investor Beat, Motley Fool analyst David Hanson tells investors why he just can't get excited about either one of these stocks. He notes that only 4% of Pier 1's sales are online, which is shockingly low considering the retail trends that are rapidly shifting in that direction. In the video, David discusses the strategic missteps for both companies, and tells investors why he just isn't interested in either one.
