Analyst, Joseph Feldman wrote in a note, “In the near term, we believe Best Buy’s business is likely to experience a further decline related to the challenging macro trends weighing on discretionary consumer demand, given high inflation and rising interest rates—resulting in our lower 2023 forecasts for both sales and profits. Our updated view also incorporates the disappointing outlook provided by other retailers, including Home Depot and Walmart.”
