After sneaking up to $51.70 (U.S.) in the pre-market on Tuesday, Best Buy shares are trading down 1.25 per cent at $50.50 after the first 45 minutes of trading as the Street takes a closer look at the retailer's outlook. Best Buy nudged its fiscal 2007 guidance by 5 cents-to-10 cents a share, which implies a fourth-quarter view of $1.72, below consensus of $1.82. But Deutsche Bank figures the new forecast, coupled with the third-quarter numbers, puts second-half profit at $2.16-to-$2.26 a share, compared with consensus of $2.23, which is still in line.  "Best Buy likely wants to provide a conservative, beatable outlook," it adds.
