Time to Buy This Embattled Retailer?

The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys focus on Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKS  ) , which will be shutting down roughly one-third of its stores over the next decade. While Jason thinks there will be a demand -- albeit a smaller one -- for a retail presence, the real problem for B&N is that Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) beat it to the punch with the Kindle. For the full story, along with the guys' take on whether it would make sense for Barnes & Noble to go private, be sure to check out the following video segment.

Everyone knows Amazon is the big bad wolf in the retail world right now, but at its sky-high valuation, most investors are worried it's the company's share price that will get knocked down instead of its competitors'. We'll tell you what's driving the company's growth, and fill you in on reasons to buy and reasons to sell Amazon, in our new premium report. Our report also has you covered with a full year of free analyst updates to keep you informed as the company's story changes, so click here now to read more.
