3 Must-Have Ingredients for a Successful Turnaround

In the following video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos gives investors three must-have things for anyone basing an investment thesis in a company on a potential turnaround story. He gives us the mindset you should have going into the investment, tells us why the right management for the company is crucial, and gives us a look at why healthy free cash flow is vital. Then he applies these three ideas to three of today's most well-known possible turnarounds: J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP  ) , Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) , and Radioshack (NYSE: RSH  ) .

Many write off any chances for RadioShack's revival, but the brand has been around for more than 80 years and survived numerous technological disruptions during that time. The question is: Can RadioShack survive in today's new retail environment? To help answer that question, we've compiled an in-depth premium report covering all the opportunities, risks, and specifics that every investor should be aware of before deciding whether RadioShack is a buy or a sell.

    At $24 per share, no investor was interested to do a buy out deal of Best Buy. Now the stock price has come back from $11.30 low to today $21.5 a share. Which is very close to original buy out offer. So what is going on here? I think some people are trying to squeeze as much money out of BBY before it goes through its down spiral into oblivion. Such a rally on no guidance, tweaked earning reports, & unproven management model, is full blown speculation. BBY share price will fade as fast as it rose in the last 3 months. Today's share price is simply ridiculous cause the company has nothing to back up any guaranteed success.
