1 Embattled Retailer's Silver Lining

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, sales of Barnes and Noble's e-reader device, the Nook, have taken a big turn downward. Joe notes, however, that sales of the actual e-content for the Nook are up. The guys discuss whether or not this silver lining is enough, and if falling Nook sales aren't just too big of a red flag for the company in the face of increasing competition from other tablets, like Apple's iPad.


Apple has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool Superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 219.20% since he recommended it in January of 2008. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and helping like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up.
