Best Buy (BBY) is the largest specialty retailer of consumer electronics products such as computing devices, tablets, mobile phone, televisions, home appliances, and related accessories. These products are categorized as consumer discretionary. As such, they are sensitive to the economic cycle. In contrast, consumer staples (XLP), which includes essentials such as food, must be purchased regardless of market conditions.
