Luxury spending is actually improving, even while most of us are still strapped, so the news that Saks Fifth Avenue might be acquired has a lot of people looking for meaning and wondering which retailer might be next.

Barnes & Noble, Aeropostale and BJ's Wholesale all belong to a group of well-known retailers that may be purchased by private investors (i.e. private equity companies). All of these retailers are considered undervalued or have some underlying value thanks to brand equity or property, and all get mentioned in reports on the subject.
