Best Buy’s (NYSE: BBY) stock, a specialty retailer of consumer electronics, home-office products, entertainment software, appliances, and related services, has declined by almost 12% over the last five trading days and currently stands at around $100. The market seemed to react downward to the company’s mixed fourth-quarter results. While the retailer’s fourth-quarter adjusted earnings came in 3 cents higher than the estimates, its revenues were $300 million below the expectations. It should be noted that the broader S&P 500 returned close to a 2% decline over the last five days. Now, is BBY stock poised to fall further? We believe that the company’s stock is still undervalued at about 14x consensus fiscal 2022 (year ending Jan 2022) earnings and that the stock could grow going forward. There is a strong chance of a rise in BBY’s stock over the next month (twenty-one trading days) based on our machine learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last five years. See our analysis on BBY’s Stock Chances of Rise for more details.

While BBY stock has moved lower post Q4 results, 2020 has created many pricing discontinuities which can offer attractive trading opportunities. For example, you’ll be surprised how the stock valuation for Cognex vs Amazon shows a disconnect with their relative operational growth. You can find many such discontinuous pairs here.
