    thing some here do not understand

    Many here mention declining FCF as a reason buyout will not happen and PE are not interested but if they had a steady or rising FCF - why in the hell even talk about buyout???

    • A buyout is good for everyone here. Investors win, management and board win with the millions of shares they own and Shulze wins because he gets his company back and has potential to make heaps more money that he did as a director or even a shareholder.

      It's about valuation here. BBY has $50 billion in annual revenues with more than $1 billion in profit. Considering that Amazon doesn't nearly have as much overhead as BBY does, I would say that one big box CE retailer remain and continue to surprise Wall Street.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
