Trying to raise my blood pressure...

 

Amazon's COH is less than half of what that article claims (while BN's is double), so that should tell you about how worthless Motley Fool continues to be.

Should we suppose that the name of the organization publishing the opinions reflects the target audience: a motley group of fools?

 

Getting out of the NOOK business, IMO, would certainly seal the fate of Barnes and Noble if the current market move is away from DTBs and towards e-books.

Isn't Cash On Hand (COH) more an indication of poor financial management than a forecast of the future?  

 

What was Amazon planning to do with all that cash?  Wait for the US to default on its credit, and the dollar to plunge in value?   

 

As of the end of FY 2013, Barnes and Noble reported more than $160 MM in COH, so Flyingtoastr is correct.
