Finding a buyer for Barnes & Noble (BKS +19%) may be difficult, Credit Suisse's Gary Balter says, viewing the announcement of a potential buyout as "possibly an attempt to quell some of the corporate governance concerns raised by Ron Burkle and perhaps a way to explore if any outside interest actually exists." Problems will persist as long as BKS remains primarily a brick-and-mortar retailer, Balter adds.
