How You Should View Best Buy's Surging Shares


Shares of Best Buy are up by 83% so far year to date. But with so much uncertainty about the company's ability to stabilize slowing revenue and same-store sales -- and with so many investors viewing this as a turnaround story facing serious headwinds in a disrupted retail landscape -- can this stock growth alone be the basis for an investing thesis? In this video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos discusses how share price can become disconnected from the fundamentals of a company and talks about the real metrics that investors must focus on in order to know when the turnaround is taking place.

The brick-and-mortar vs. e-commerce battle wages on, with Best Buy caught in the middle. After what might have been its most tumultuous year in history, there are now even more unanswered questions about the future for the big-box electronics retailer. How will new leadership perform?

To help answer all these questions, The Motley Fool has released a new premium research report detailing the opportunities -- and the risks -- in store for Best Buy.
