Consumer goods analyst Austin Smith takes a bearish perspective on RadioShack. While the company does have plenty of exposure to the growing mobile industry, this trend is not as big a boon to retailers like RadioShack or BestBuy as it is for the handset manufacturers. Over the last year, RadioShack’s operating margin fell to a razor-thin 2.1%. Not only that, but consumers can easily move online for higher-margin purchases. With growing competition, including by partners AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, now might be the right time to sell your position in RadioShack.
If there is one thing to love about RadioShack, though, it's its double-digit dividend. At 13%, it stands head and shoulders above the competition. However, the quality of the dividend is something else entirely. RadioShack's success is built on less-than-solid ground.
