15:57 EDTBBYS&P cites continued margin pressure for all segments Best Buy's business
"The downgrade of Best Buy reflects our view that it will be very difficult for the company to improve its gross margin in the fourth quarter of the year given the highly promotional nature of year-end holiday retailing in the wireless and consumer electronic categories," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jayne Ross. It is our belief that all segments of the company's business will remain under margin pressure for 2012 and into 2013. In addition, we believe that the new management team still needs to fully formulate its strategy for improving the continued decline in same-store sales and margins. Given the highly seasonal nature of the company's operations, skewed heavily to the fourth quarter, we may not begin to see any tangible results until the second half of fiscal 2013 or beyond."
