( MENAFN ) Best Buy shares raised 19% after the retailer reported quarterly profits higher than expected, helped by stronger online sales and a housing recovery that sparked demand.
The largest US electronics retailer raised its fiscal earnings and reported an increase in sales at stores open at least a year.
Moody's analyst Charlie O'Shea said: "Given the heavily promotional July environment due to Amazon's Prime Day and Wal-Mart's steady diet of competing offers, Best Buy's online results stand out."
