Today, Fool.com analysts Blake Bos and Isaac Pino look at some of the news that's sent Best Buy's shares surging this week. A slew of rumors and a little shakeup at the top have given investors reason to cheer, but Blake remains skeptical. 

Best Buy operates in an increasingly difficult space -- bricks-and-mortar electronics retail. It's a business that Amazon may very well render obsolete before Best Buy can even begin the necessary steps in a turnaround.

We'll tell you what's driving Amazon's growth, as well as how to know when to buy and sell this company, today in our new premium report.
