In this video, Motley Fool consumer-goods analyst Blake Bos takes a look at shares of Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS), and why this stock took such a beating after the company's earnings report. Blake notes that apart from missing on earnings and lowering guidance, many investors are just concerned that Staples' growth is stagnating, and beginning to decline. There are also worries that the entire office-supply store sector is in jeopardy. So after this major sell-off, is Staples a value play, or a value trap? Blake tells investors what he needs to see from this stock to be interested.
