Best Buy Co. reported another dismal quarter on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, recording a loss in the third quarter, hurt by a continued sales slump and charges related to restructuring. Shares fell 5 percent in premarket trading. The electronics chain is struggling to reverse a years long decline in its business as competition from online stores and discounters increases, and consumers' tastes shift from more profitable items like TVs and desktop computers toward less profitable smartphones and tablets.
