Today, fool.com analysts Blake Bos and Austin Smith look at one consumer-goods stock that can't stop crashing -- RadioShack. The company is down 79% over the past year and has a ridiculous 42% of its shares sold short. With former CEO Jim Gooch stepping down, investors may finally get the new management that's needed to turn around this ailing retailer. Despite its crazy-cheap valuation, our analysts characterize this company as one whose turnaround story is perpetually around the next corner.
One reason to doubt that the turnaround won't pan out as promised is the inherent pressure from low-margin smartphones such as Apple's record-setting iPhone 5.
Apple is the most influential company in technology, and its blockbuster products make it difficult for retailers to turn much of a profit. However, maintaing that torrid pace will only get more difficult. If you're looking for a recommendation on how to play Apple along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, we've created a brand-new report that details when to buy and sell Apple.
