Fitch Ratings close to sounding default knell on RadioShack

  • Fitch Ratings gives a dire outlook for RadioShack (RSH -0.7%) after the company's FQ1 results underwhelmed.
  • The ratings agency expects a restructuring at RadioShack before the end of the year with excess liquidity very tight.
  • If Fitch bumps its rating on the retailer down a notch to C it would signify a belief that a default is imminent.

    The overwhelming BK meme on this means Best Buy or Walmart will buy them out for $3/sh and fry the shorts...happens every time.

    Seems unlikely, not a whole lot of synergy. In any case, the good parts of RSH (if there are any) can be had more cheaply in Chapter 11.

    ...too bad for once was a great company to work for. Too many outsiders brought in ruined the company.

    I may buy 1 contract call 0.5 Jan 2014. It may be going up for a short period.
