    Let's do a little dividend math in case of buyout...

    Analyst consensus is that financing will be tough to come by with the current weakening of the business model. Not currently a growth/profit story. As long as margins are under duress, free cash continues to fall, inventory and receivables go up, and sales growth is stagnant, not much risk capital interest. Contrarian - as long as Schultz holds 20% and continues to explore LBO, being short is equally dangerous.

    Talk about job-related stress for a BBY manager. Could be worse though. Imagine being a stock holder or employed by a publicly traded coal mining company?
