Perfect buyout target for MSFT with retail stores in place. Also been outperforming with retail stores - company is clearly not bankrupt which most of wall street thinks. Nook tablet prospects

Going out of buisiness slowly and steadily. Who goes to bookstores anymore? And now this article: https://www.fool.com/investing/2017/08/17/3-dividend-stocks-id-never-buy-3.aspx. Don't even buy for the dividend, the company is so bad.

Pursuing Strategic options pushing the stock 25% higher is most likely short covering. Not all strategic options is favorable to stock holders. Unless there is a bidding war then any suitor can wait for more favorable terms. If there was interest, they probably would already have "offers".

Target, not much, cover when shorts cover. sub $6.00

I have yet to actually short a stock... but this falls into the basket of stocks that are at the front of the list should I decide to one day.

Old-world retailer that failed to innovate and consumed by eCommerce. Yesterday I drove by my old campus and realized that the once licensed campus bookstore has dropped the B&N name, which reminded me to get on CAPS. On top of a shrinking business, you have CEOs getting fired and suing the company in return... that just smells, especially for a company that is already getting crushed in the market.
