Why Retailer Shares Are Taking Flight

In the following video, Motley Fool consumer-goods analysts Blake Bos and Isaac Pino discuss some beaten-down retailers that took off today. Shares of Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) were up on news that the stock had received upgrades from a couple of analysts, and Office Depot (NYSE: ODP  ) and OfficeMax (NYSE: OMX  ) were in talks about a possible merger, leading to a jump in shares of office-supply retailers across the sector. Blake and Isaac discuss why analyst upgrades should be taken with a grain of salt, share why the electronics retailer sector may not be dead after all, and tell us what they think of the office-supplies sector as a whole.

The battle between brick-and-mortar businesses and e-business 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.
