    • Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) is a screaming buy ahead of the planned spinoff of the company's education business, reasons Barron's.
    • Working off the EBITDA B&N churned up last year, Barron's estimates the retail stores are worth $22 a share, while the education business is $14 a share and another $4 a share sits in cash.
    • That $40 valuation on BKS compares to a Friday close of $24.68 and doesn't apply a premium to the retail bookstore and education businesses becoming more efficient after they are freed up.
    • Craig-Hallum Capital Group agrees that B&N is undervalued as the Nook overhang scares off growth investors and Wall Street analysts alike.
    • SA contributor Andriy Blokhin has a breakdown on Barnes & Noble that dives into fundamentals.
