The Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: Axcelis Technologies, KB Home, Deere & Company, CAI International and Best Buy Co
"Differentiating factors include specialized knowledge and services not readily available or that cannot be done online, such as touching or testing a product, or getting a haircut or facial or other experience." Best Buy (BBY) is one such retailer, he argues, as its brand and store-within-a-store partnerships are helping it hold its own against online competition and leading to rising same-store sales: The company's exclusive brands (such as Insignia, Modal, Dynex) are important parts of sales and profitability too. BBY matches Amazon's prices and those of other key retailers, and encourages consumers to browse and test electronics, including TVs and stereos in-store. BBY grew comparable sales by 1.6% during Q1, including domestic online comparable sales increasing 22.5%.
