Split Talk at Barnes & Noble

With the rise in online book sales accompanied by the success of Amazon’s kindle and Apple’s iPad, Barnes and Nobles is steadily losing market share. The consensus among analyst is something soon must be done before the company goes the way of Borders Group, Inc. The stock has been down 62% from its high in 2006 of $47.40. According to Bloomberg.com, speculation on a break-up is immediate with the promotion of Michael Huseby, who was a key player during the spinoffs of Cablevision Systems Corp.
According to the street consensus, the break-up of Barnes & Noble’s three revenue lines (the retail chain, college bookstores, and Nook digital business) would boost value by 44% or $25.86 a share. On speculation alone today, the stock rose by 0.5%. A long position on the stock could potential yield a good upside.
