Rob Black’s Winner and Losers: Housing, Amazon and RadioShack

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — On today’s edition of Rob Black’s Winners and Losers, our financial expert Rob Black and KRON 4’s Mark Danon talk housing, Amazon and RadioShack.

There’s at least an argument to be made, according to a new San Francisco Fed study, that conditions in the latest boom appear far less precarious than those in the previous episode.

Amazon is one of the few big tech companies that’s still innovating as if it were a startup. But with the news that Amazon is offering a one-hour delivery service, it is becoming increasingly clear that Jeff Bezos is the CEO to beat when it comes to leading a publicly-traded high tech company.

RadioShack is on the comeback trail, and its first appeal to holiday shoppers comes Nov. 25, when the electronics retailer plans to run its Black Friday deals a day before any other major chain.

Stores will feature nearly 100 different deals, and stay open an hour later than normal on Wednesday. On Thanksgiving, stores will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. only, giving shoppers a chance to finish their hunt for savings hours before most other retailers plan to open their doors.
