UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) price target of $20.00.

Analyst, Michael Lasser, asks a question: What reviews will this drama garner?

Yesterday, founder and former Chairman, Richard Schulze, sent a letter to Best Buy's board of directors. Schulze requested specific due diligence information as he has made a bid to acquire all BBY shares for $24 to $26 (per share in cash). He mentioned being able to finance the deal with a combination of private equity investment, debt financing and $1 billion of his own equity. Credit Suisse expressed interest in participating (with the debt financing part).
