The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill, along with analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross.
In this segment, in the increasingly competitive tablet market, Barnes and Noble (NYSE: BKS ) has reported a 12% decrease in its Nook e-reader sales. The guys discuss that, as a silver lining, an increase in e-book sales for the company shows that the model does indeed work. But if Barnes and Noble wants to stay competitive, it had better sell more Nooks ... and fast.
Barnes and Noble's biggest competitor in the e-reader tablet space right now is, of course, Amazon. Amazon has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool Superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 1521.88% since he recommended it in September of 2002. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and helping like-minded investors profit, while Wall Street catches up.
