The Most Important Black Friday Ever

In the midst of two major pressures on the retail space, a tight economy, and the continued shift toward online shopping, several retailers facing severe cash shortages are going to need solid performances this holiday season to shake fears that they may be in dire straits. In this video, Motley Fool analysts Blake Bos and Austin Smith discuss the difficulties at Radio Shack (NYSE: RSH  ) , Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) and J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP  ) , and talk about how severe a situation each one faces. Plus, they highlight a few companies in the retail space that are doing well and poised to continue, such as Staples (Nasdaq: SPLS  ) .

J.C. Penney has been a train wreck whose comeback always seems just around the next earnings corner, but people are beginning to doubt whether CEO Ron Johnson can weave the same magic that he did at Apple. For investors wondering whether J.C. Penney is a buy today, you're invited to claim a copy of The Motley Fool's new must-read report on the company.
