[SH] What advantages does
BARNESANDNOBLE.COM have over these retailers?
BARNESANDNOBLE.COM's relationship with its partners, BARNES & NOBLE
and the German publisher Bertelsmann, is perhaps the
company's greatest asset. Its link with the brand name
"Barnes & Noble" has allowed the online retailer to form
relationships with leading sites run by companies such as
MICROSOFT (MSFT), LYCOS (LCOS) and AMERICA ONLINE (AOL).
The company also receives a large portion of its
inventory from BARNES & NOBLE, which allows for greater
availability of titles and cuts inventory management costs.
Bertelsmann owns a number of publishers, including Random
House and Bantam Doubleday Dell, which makes it
possible for BARNESANDNOBLE.COM to cross-market and
acquire customers through Bertelsmann's book clubs in
both the U.S. and abroad.

This has been slipping down little by little, without
much resistance, effortlessly. F**king Riggio team
should do something for the BKS stock price. I don't
care BNBN much at this point. Internet stocks seams to
be goners for now. AMZN is dead and will be killed
more. But I mean BKS. Where is BKS valuation?
What can I do to move BKS back to where it used to be?
Leonard Riggio must of looked under many rocks to
have found a chairman for .com that has the same
ability to jam his foot in his mouth like good old
reliable Lenny hissownself.
Don't be sorry to vent.
This clown act needs people such as yourself to keep
us all aware. I am long (stuck) but don't pass by
this way too often.
Keep up the good work.
