    "Is it time for investors to take stock in Best Buy?" Sure let's get long into a stock whose share price has come up 120% in 3 months.

    HAHAHA! "I am not a buyer yet..." What a dumb thing to say! Of course, every one knows you should buy a stock when it is at its 52-week high! He is not a buyer now because he doesn't even believe his own words "BBY has turned a corner." BBY has only come up with some ideas. Samsung Kiosks is nothing new (e.g. Apple Kiosks). Are they supposed to save BBY? No one knows right now. 6 months from now we can talk again if BBY has turned a corner, not now... In the meantime, think JCP...

    No.....It's a BEST BUY! :-)

    I bought $500 worth of shares at $21.71 this morning...adding to my previous stake in Best Buy that I initiated a few weeks ago....

    That was amazing. I never have that kind of luck usually.... $21.71 was the absolute lowest share price of the day.
