Best Buy’s Comps Fall, Stock Price Plummets

Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE:BBY)’s stock price plummeted 28.5% yesterday after traders found out that same-store sales (comps) had fallen by 0.9% during the holiday season (the nine week period ending January 4) instead of growing 2.0% as anticipated. The stock closed at $26.88, just 40% of its 52-week high, reports Johanna Bennett for Barron’s.

Plenty of warning for Best Buy’s weak holiday season . . .
