A New Tablet Game-Changer?
On today's edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:
- Shares of Best Buy (NYS: BBY) hit a new 52-week low after reporting disappointing earnings. Can the company turn its fortunes around, or have years of competing with Amazon.com (NAS: AMZN) and Wal-Mart (NYS: WMT) taken their toll? Our advisors analyze Best Buy's business and make specific recommendations for how CEO Brian Dunn can turn things around.
- Can any company launch a tablet to take on Apple's (NAS: AAPL) iPad? The marketplace has a surprising new competitor: GameStop (NYS: GME) . Will a "GameStop-certified" tablet computer be a hit with consumers? Our advisors discuss GameStop's chances for success as well as the games they'd like to see loaded onto the tablet.
