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

Let me just say that I adore bookstores as a concept and I have fond childhood memories of visiting Borders and Waldenbooks with my family! Last weekend I was headed to one of my favorite Barnes & Noble locations in Manhattan (Lexington and 53rd St)… More

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.

Still struggling to adjust to the growth online retailing. High dividend and weak earnings suggest a dividend cut could be in the cards.

Negative EPS, Equity is 75% intangible, still paying a dividend with negative net income.

I do like the stores though...
