Best Value Stocks To Buy Right Now: Barnes & Noble, Inc.(BKS)

That leaves a hole in the market, one that will be filled partially by independent stores, but still leaves an opportunity for one struggling retailer. Unfortunately, the CEO of that retailer, Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), has recently commented that his chain plans to reduce its assortment of toys.

My colleague Dan Kline believes there’s also an opportunity for Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) to gain share in this space. Best known for books, it has also long been a retailer of specialty toys and games, and opening up its shelves to more mass-market toys could give it a wedge into the industry.Certainly this is a possibility, but like Walmart, Target, and other retailers, Barnes & Noble has no special knowledge or expertise in the space to allow it to make a grand entrance. It’s just not a market it knows well, which means that another type of retailer that could make a pronounced move in the space faces the same kinds of hurdles.
