Can Best Buy Bounce Back?

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Mike Olsen and Taylor Muckerman take a Foolish deep dive into the biggest investing stories of the day.

To the surprise of bears everywhere, prior to its earnings release yesterday,Best Buy was the best-performing stock of the S&P 500 for 2013. The company's Q3 profit looked good, although revenue came in a bit light. But is this stock-price run-up a lot of enthusiasm over a company that is fundamentally in trouble at its core? In this segment, our analysts take a look at Best Buy, why it has been such a strong performer in 2013, and whether this is an actual turnaround or just temporary market excitement.
