Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Best Buy Co. stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Based on our field checks we believe BBY should be able to achieve the upper end of its -1% to +1% US comp sales plan, or slightly better. We started the quarter at -0.7% and raised our view to 1-1.5% with a single point estimate of 1% in our model. Shares have held up well following Q3 results when BBY posted a +1.8% US comp. We believe expectations have remained optimistic, so shares appear to be pricing in good holiday results already." (2/23/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Best Buy shares have outpaced the industry in the past one year driven by earnings beat over the last 16 quarters. The company is making extensive investments to upgrade its operations with special focus on developing omni-channel capabilities and strengthening partnership with vendors. Moreover, management is optimistic about fiscal fourth-quarter earnings and projected earnings in the range of $1.62–$1.67 per share. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of fourth-quarter earnings release. However, the challenging retail landscape, aggressive promotional strategies and waning store traffic may hurt the stock. Moreover, comparable sale for the final quarter does not look encouraging.  Enterprise comparable sales are expected to be in the range of down 1% to up 1%. Further, the company anticipates international comparable sales in the range of down 2% to up 2%, while domestic comparable sales in the band of down 1% to up 1%." (2/20/2017)
