The RadioShack War: New Stores and Wall Street

In the following video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos takes a look at the dramatic drop in RadioShack's (NYSE: RSH  ) share price since last Friday, down around 16% on rumors that the company was in talks with financial advisors regarding financing to aid liquidity problems. Blake tells investors that the company has since dispelled these rumors, and has a strong amount of liquidity on its balance sheet, around $820 million. Blake then highlights the real story that he feels Wall Street is missing: a roll-out of several new concept stores in NYC, New Jersey, and Texas over the next few weeks. He tells us why he likes the dramatic redesign of these stores, why he's optimistic that this small bet is definitely on the right track to turn the brand around, and why he isn't concerned about liquidity in the short term.

The retail space is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of last century. Only those most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward those investors who understand the landscape.
