Bed Bath & Beyond Stock: It’s All Over But the Shouting

Best Buy (BBY) has a fairly unique story in the retail world. The electronics chain appeared to be on its way toward bankruptcy when it made the unconventional choice to hire Hubert Joly — an executive with a hospitality background — to take over the chain.

He made painful choices to lower prices, invest in delivery, and make it so people would not visit Best Buy, then order from Amazon (AMZN) .
