Time to Buy This Embattled Retailer?


The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys focus on Barnes & Noble, which will be shutting down roughly one-third of its stores over the next decade. While Jason thinks there will be a demand -- albeit a smaller one -- for a retail presence, the real problem for B&N is that Amazon.com beat it to the punch with the Kindle. For the full story, along with the guys' take on whether it would make sense for Barnes & Noble to go private, be sure to check out the following video segment.
