Best Buy collateral damage: An earnings warning from the embattled big box retailer spills over to taint shares of peers hhGregg (HGG -9.7%), Conn's (CONN -1.9%), and RadioShack (RSH -3.2%). Also trading weak on the day are office supply sellers OfficeMax (OMX -1.8%) and Office Depot (ODP -1.4%) with the notion floating around again that the combination of a strapped U.S. consumer and a competitive pricing environment for electronics doesn't bode well for profits.
