Best Buy Co., Inc (BBY) Max Chart (Yahoo Finance)
We can see that BBY has had a rocky past with large fluctuations and no consistent steady growth over the years. Zooming into the last 5 years, we can see a slight upwards trend. It’s recent jump can be due to the pandemic with more people sitting at home looking for entertainment. It can also be due to a shift towards online work and school. We can see that BBY has had increasing annual top-line revenue and that their last 4 earnings had consistent beats. Rocky markets can be difficult to navigate.
