Consider a few key metrics. Despite the disappearance of competitors including Circuit City, the company is losing market share. Its last earnings announcement disappointed investors. In 2011, the company’s stock has lost 40% of its value. Forward P/E is a mere 6.23 (industry average is 10.20). Its market cap down to less than $9 billion. Its average analyst rating, according to The Street.com, is a B-.
Walk into one of the company’s retail locations or shop online. And try, really try, not to lose your temper.
As with many large retailers unable to cope with new channels and new consumer expectations, the company will continue to sputter on fumes, slowing down bit by bit until one day it just stops moving. Think of Elek-Tek, Virgin Megastores, or KB Toys.
Best Buy gave its online customers just about the worst news possible four days before Christmas: Your order has not been filled.
The Richfield-based retailer said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that it will not be able to process some of its online orders by Friday, including some made the day after Thanksgiving.
