Tomorrow's earning report for Q3 is not important, because this year's reporting date is even not covering Black Friday. Not matter how, there will be a buyout deal, it will be definitely much higher thant $14 bucks per share.
Schulze is smart, this is the best time for him to make the deal done. There are plenty of reasons to believe BBY will survive, Lots of people still like to buy things from the actual store. Taking advantages of local stores, BBY can do better online sales than Amazon, if they make up their mind to do so, and they do.
At this price, BBY is not a good target for shorting, it's time for covering.
