At $1.7 billion, Nook is worth more than Barnes & Noble itself

  1. BKS should trade below the value of the Nook subsidiary; the rest of the business loses money consistently, and is up against stronger competition in AMZN.

    That said, they could unlock the value by spinning off Nook to shareholders… but why would management give up its only good asset simply to help shareholders?

    1. BKS is trading at twenty five dollars a share which makes it worth just shy of four point five billion dollars. No idea what the still to created Nook spin-off would be worth.

  2. This might just be B&N saving grace. As much as I’m all for survival of the fittest, I also hate to see a century old company go out of business. I have a feeling that this boost is temporary, having worked there before, it is obvious that they struggle to innovate and keep ahead of the curve. Not sure if this is enough to light a fire under them and continue to improve.
