Anyone following the issue closely would have realized that when they saw who the CEO was in the article.  Julien Day has been gone for a good long while now.

Well, it is The Onion... and the piece is timeless and still spot on satire.

I like your toolbox/drawer thing there, I am in dire need of something like that... Did you build it? If not where did you purchase it if you don't mind me asking?

He didn't get it at Radio Shack. Cheesy

Re: N5INP

Just checked out the RS catalogue mentioned in your earlier post. I was impressed with their Model 747-82 Portable Shit House shelter on pg.2. I think they have finally found a niche in Ham radio as this item alone should put them over the top in sales at Dayton.

A new customer segment, surely!

Radio Shack is changing alright, but the question is 'into what?'  If things go the way they seem to be going, the answer is simple:  A lot of empty storefronts!

You're right, I meant to post a more recent NYT article that I read.

Dead cat bounce.  People gambling that RS will survive.  At .86 a share it is a small risk to buy a few hundred shares and hope they make a comeback.

The smart money would take Berkshire Hathaway "A" shares at over $200,000 each to double before RSH sub-buck doubles. RadioShack might hang on in some form but RSH common shareholders are unlikely to. Yesterday's spike was because a hedge fund, that already lost heavily in RSH, announced they were working on a restructuring to avoid or delay bankruptcy. More time isn't what RadioShack needs. Our old Radio Shack is disappearing in any event: over half its sales come from cell phones. 

Quote
Standard General LP, one of RadioShack Corp.’s largest shareholders, is negotiating a possible rescue package with investors intended to allow the retailer to stave off a bankruptcy filing, according to two people with knowledge of the talks.

The hedge fund that is also orchestrating a lifeline for American Apparel Inc. (APP) is seeking to bolster RadioShack’s cash through the issuance of debt or equity, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. The firm is also working with RadioShack’s management to craft a plan that would avoid Chapter 11, the people said.
 

I wonder about the purpose of that heavily publicized move: Is it to benefit RadioShack shareholders or to give Standard General time to unwind their terrible investment?

Standard General LP... taking on two waterlogged sinkers at once in deep waters?

that's the definition of hubris right there.  might as well announce they've revived Enron.
