Best Buy Co., Inc.

From 1966 to 1983, Best Buy Co., Inc. (BBY) was known as "Sound of Music." Today the company has nearly $40 billion in annual revenue. News on this company is pretty stable, just various product offerings and management attempts to adjust to various market conditions. The company tried movie rentals for a bit in the 1990's but this didn't work out. Today, "Geek Squad" is a big part of its business, a computer programming and software installation and repair operation for people not too familiar with computer programming.

The company specializes in consumer electronics, and Samsung is one of (if not "the") largest sources of products to sell, especially smart phones.

Although a large company this company's stock offers opportunities for in-and-out trading with little risk. It also offers covered call option write opportunities. It has a reasonably strong Zenith Index indicating sound fundamentals. It has suffered a bit from reduced consumer spending subsequent to the recession beginning in 2008. But projections for future growth are good.

Researchers like the stock while analysts are more reserved. The company has a good website and reporting including a CEO Letter to Shareholders which many American corporations are now neglecting in favor of conference calls.

Institutions are fairly "balanced" but net sellers of late. With the demise of companies like Circuit City, Comp USA, and the like, this company has what we consider to be relatively few competitors. Those which do compete, like Wal-Mart, are not quite so specialized in the electronics departments. They are often less helpful with knowledgable employees and staff.

Best Buy makes heavy use of "gift cards" which are often used by banks as "rewards" and this helps secure business over competitors.

The company apparently does not award stock option perquisites to management, which we think is a sign of good corporate governance and management.

We would not describe the stock chart pattern as one for a "channeling stock", but when the price operates at discrete levels, it does provide oportunities for small profits within each what we would call "Darvas boxes."

The stock pays a 2.8% dividend. The price/sales ratioi is 0.38 in contrast to an overall industry average of 0.49.

As is problematic with today's retail sales, revenue has been slumping over a period of years slightly, but earnings have been rising, a trend which is not sustainable.

Since we operate on legacy software and equipment which we describe as the "lowest common denominator", we don't like the company's dependence upon electronic and software advances which are designed to make earlier models obsolete. The lack of backward compatibility is beneficial to stores like Best Buy, forcing customers to buy the "latest stuff," but we would prefer to see dependence upon something other than that. Rational people eventually get tired of "upgrading" all the time and will seek ways (as we do) to get around the necessity.

It seems no sooner than we have bought a Samsung Galaxy 2, we are already up to Galaxy 8.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
