Best Buy: Benefiting From Growing Collaboration With Apple

Summary

  • Best Buy delivered strong second-quarter financial results, which beat EPS expectations by a big margin. The company showed significant earnings per share surprise in all its last eight quarters.
  • Best Buy's domestic comparable sales were up 3.8% in the second quarter, while the industry's comparable sales were down 1.9% in the same period.
  • Best Buy will benefit from its increasing collaboration with Apple, and it has been working with Apple to update the 740 stores-within-a-store that were first implemented in 2007.
  • The average target price of the top analysts is at $39.25, up 9.6% from the stock's August 27 close price. However, in my opinion, shares could go even higher.
