More on Best Buy Q4: Best Buy turns a profit; shares surge

  • Best Buy (BBY +7.8%) swings to a net profit of $293M from a loss of $409M a year earlier, which included a goodwill impairment of $822M.
  • Comparable store sales -1.2%
  • Gained market share, due to its "strategy to be price competitive" and to improve the customer experience.
  • Cost cuts help offset the negative impact of BBY's mobile warranty and the new credit card agreement, with the affect of the latter higher than expected.
  • In H1, Best Buy expects total comparable-store sales to drop slightly, similar to Q4.
  • Discrete year-over-year income tax related items will hurt FY 2015 results. (PR)
