Is Best Buy Turning Around?

With first-quarter earnings better than expected, could Best Buy be a best buy in the future?

On today's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Tim Hanson explore Best Buy's latest earning reports.

Unless Best Buy focuses on a service-oriented model or finds exclusive products, Chris doesn't see the company getting any new traffic, despite beating their very low expectations.
