RSH - The End of a Model?

05 March 2014 by HCM

RSH (RadioShack Corporation) published its results yesterday. The electronics chain posted fourth quarter sales that trailed analysts’ estimates and announced plan to close more than 1,000 stores. Despite the kudos it got for its ad during the SuperBowl, people are still not convinced why they should shop there. RSH’s risk premium has raised very aggressively over the last 2 sessions, and even short dated protection is now trading at unprecedented level for the name: investors are asking to be paid around 25% to take 1 year risk. Serious questions are being asked about the future of RSH, even the very short one.
