Best Buy shows declining performance. What does this mean for the share price?

by

Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE:BBY) reported Q4 and full-year results. The results indicate the Q4 EPS at $2.73 compared to $3.48 in Q4 of the previous year. The annual EPS was recorded at $10.01 compared to $7.91 in the previous year.

The results indicate that though the full-year EPS was higher, the lower Q4 EPS signals a slowdown in the performance of the company. The decline is expected to continue in FY23, with BBY expecting the EPS between $8.85 and $9.15.

A turnaround to the 2021 performance levels is expected in FY25. Best Buy’s performance captures the impact of e-commerce sales declines as consumption trends return to pre-pandemic behaviors.
