They are closing store. They don't think they will perform well.

Staples is downsizing its retail footprint, both through store closures and shrinking the remaining stores to make them more productive. This will yield huge cost savings and represents a much more sustainable business model going forward. Online sales already account for nearly half of Staples' revenue, and this segment of the business will continue to grow.

Nice dividend. Good customer service and market share of its prining/office supply retail industry. Reasonably low debt, P/Bk, and EV/EBITDA. Good ratio of gross income to total assets. Above average 10-year cash flow growth.

Until SPLS get's it's distribution to mini & micro businesses (Professionals, Realtors, Doctors offices, etc) competitive with the Amazon UPS alliance it will be relying too much on foot traffic for operating margins.

Staples has complete control of the office supplies sector so any uptick in business start ups or the economy will surely impact Staples positively. Also #2 in online sales only to Amazon. Add to that free next day delivery on 98% of online items and you will have a hard time finding a stronger company. And i did i mention they pay nearly a 4% dividend! BUY

OfficeMax and Office Depot merger could allow for more market share for Staples

Driven to innovate at every level, Staples is poised to compete in the office supply market, even though Amazon has a large market share

Oh look a discount!

Household name selling for low PE. Restructuring to take advantage of changing marketplace.

Big box store that is losing to online options like Amazon. As the saying goes, trade what you see. I've been to my local stores a few times lately and there is never a large customer presence.

Staples is the best of the last office supply chains, if any of them are going to survive, it's this one. THe only thing that can totally kill it is Amazon free next-day shipping.

Staples is pretty bizarre in how its stock price continues to go down despite being a solid company, the exact opposite way Chipotle's had been going in the past couple of years until the recent plunge. SPLS continues to see increasing revenues and earnings but at the same time, has been in a freefall drop for the past couple of years. As of today its valuation ratios are around 5 year lows and it continues to lead the office products industry. Just how long can this thing go?

Well, time to go restock on notebooks and pencils for college. As long as stationary is still relevant to society, these guys aren't going anywhere

Staple's seems to be priced for the worse case scenario - even considering their current bad bets in Europe.

It's a mini amazon getting kicked along side the best buy trade. About half of revenue are online sales. Executives & directors have equity ownership requirments. Dividend pays to wait, payout ratio is reasonable. Single digit multiple to enterprise value. I like it. Building a position.
