Is Radio Shack a Best Buy?

Fort Worth-based RadioShack Corporation's stock jumped in value yesterday: It closed at $18.28, up $1.07 (or a whopping 6.22 percent). The reason? Rumors started circulating yesterday that Best Buy was going to buy Radio Shack--news that some traders find a little hard to swallow. Nobody's talking about the deal, or no deal, but Best Buy stockholders don't seem terribly thrilled by the news of a potential takeover: Best Buy's stock actually dropped two percent yesterday, probably because they don't know what to do with these. --Robert Wilonsky
