    This is why Best Buy fell; reports of Windows 8 sales not good

    That's just ridiculous. There are a lot of good reasons why BBY is down, but Windows 8 is certainly not one of the major ones.

    Sentiment: Sell

    • I think the execs/managers at BBY expected windows 8 to do a major push for PC sales like all the other windows releases. They spent a considerable amount of training, marketing and inventory and sales has been very disappointing and hit their bottom line. The -4% and more same store sales points this as a contributing factor as Best buy concentrated on this sale and it hasn't panned out. They should have concentrated on cell phone sales.
