The Best Buy Roller Coaster: Time to Get Off?

In the following video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos takes a look at a Wall Street Journal report from yesterday saying that Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) founder and former chairman Richard Schulze may not make an offer to buy out the company after all, and may instead team up with a group of investors to purchase a minority stake. Blake looks at how the different buyout possibilities are taking investors on a roller-coaster ride, discusses what the outcome might be in each scenario, and tells shareholders what the best-case scenario would be.

The brick-and-mortar versus e-commerce battle wages on, with Best Buy caught in the middle. After what might have been its most tumultuous year in history, there are now even more unanswered questions about the future for the big-box electronics retailer. How will new leadership perform? Will old leadership take the company private? Will a smaller store format work out for both the company and its brave investors? Should you be one such brave investor? To help answer all these questions, The Motley Fool has released a new premium research report detailing the opportunities -- and the risks -- in store for Best Buy.
