Jefferies maintains a 'Hold' on Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) price target of $21.00.

Analyst, Daniel Binder, said, "We remain below the street on Best Buy’s sales and EPS, but expectations and valuation are already low. What will matter more is the restructuring plan we expect management to detail. Further, the exchange between Mr. Schulze and the Board continues to play out, each trying to gain more ground with shareholders."

Sees current Qtr EPS at $0.28, FY at $3.51 and next year at $3.64.
