JOANN: Poor Fundamentals Keep Us Bearish

Joann reported its Q1 results with a widening loss and weak sales. While the company expects supply chain challenges to improve going forward, we don't see much room for a turnaround. We expect poor fundamentals including a large debt to keep risks tilted to the downside.
