RadioShack slips to below $1 per share

June 20, 2014



NEW YORK (AP) — RadioShack's stock is trading below $1 per share for the first time in its history — and has the investment world wondering if it will eventually be delisted.

Shares of RadioShack Corp. plunged 11 cents, or 10.6 percent, to 92 cents in Friday afternoon trading. The New York Stock Exchange could delist the stock if it closes below $1 per share for 30 consecutive trading days.

The stock is well below its all-time high of $79.50 set in December 1999. Since then, RadioShack has had trouble finding its place in the evolving retail and technology landscape.

Long known as a destination for batteries and obscure electronic parts, RadioShack has sought to remake itself as a specialist in wireless devices and accessories. But growth in the wireless business is slowing.
