Big box retailer Best Buy is preparing for the biggest single day in retail. Best Buy is an electronics store that sells anything from batteries to large screen televisions. For those familiar, this space faced troubles with Radio Shack and Circuit City, both falling to bankruptcy. This is attributable to online sales increasing, but despite the increase in e-commerce, Best buy has been able to survive.

Best Buy Gears up for the Biggest Day of the Year with Black Friday Sales

Best Buy has been compared to a showroom as many go there to test products and buy online. That being said, the company is slowly adjusting and maintaining their spot in the market. Recently, the company declared a dividend of $0.34 a share, which is inline with their last dividend. As with many retailers, given the current state of the sector, investors are approaching this stock cautiously.

Hubert Joly, the Best Buy chairman and CEO stated the third quarter presented strong top and bottom line numbers. The company is maintaining their progress towards a 2020 strategy, which means investors can rest a little easier. Two factors that were a negative impact on the company were less than anticipated cell phones launces as well as the natural disasters that have taken place several weeks ago.  

Looking at a chart, the last year has proven to be profitable for investors, along with the dividend that is given. Despite a slow down in the retail space, the company continues to deliver for investors. As with many, this is going to be a critical quarter ahead.  

Online giant Amazon is making it difficult for Best Buy to continue, but the company seems to have a plan. One aspect of stores many fail to take advantage of is the price match. Many companies will gladly price match if you can prove there is a less expensive option for the same exact product.  

If you are a current investor, the big thing is to monitor this last quarter and understand how Best Buy performs. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if the numbers are lower because it could be indicative of the macroclimate of the sector. For those who are looking for an investment opportunity in Best Buy, look and see if the stock is trading at a discount. Also, be aware of the market and understand how the retail sector is doing as a whole. Best Buy continues to press on despite rivals filing bankruptcy, and that should speak to the solidity of the company.
