Best Buy Is Losing Its Best Chance of Survival: Jeff Macke

February 14, 2013

Hope may be running out for Best Buy. Since Richard Schulze, Best Buy's founder and former chairman, announced plans last August to take the ailing electronics retailer private for $10.8 billion -- including debt -- the stock has plunged almost 25%.

Schulze may scrap his bid in favor of lining up investors to take a minority position in the company
