Private Equity and Retail: Are Takeover Deals Done?

Friday, 20 Jul 2007 | 4:49 PM ET

In my earlier post, I told you about the debate taking place on today's "Street Signs" about whether private equity deals in the retail industry are over. Here's the video of the discussion I had with retail analyst Lizz Dunn from Thomas Weisel Partners and Manny Weintraub, Integre Advisors president.

Dunn and Weintraub think there are some value priced opportunities in retail but that private equity is probably getting to a stretching point on LBOs. Take a listen to hear what the guests think are the next possible takeover targets.
