Tech store giant Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE:BBY) this morning received a downgrade from Oppenheimer to "perform" from "outperform," though the firm also added in a price-target hike to $125 from $120. BBY was trading down 1.7% at $115.50 at last check, falling further from its Oct. 20 record high of $123.67 -- though the 20-day moving average, which caught yesterday's pullback, appears to be moving in as support. Year-to-date, the equity is still up around 32%. 

Coming into today, 12 of the 19 analysts in coverage carry a "strong buy" on BBY, with the remaining seven a "hold." Meanwhile, the 12-month consensus price target of $118.59 is a 2% premium to last night's close. 

Furthermore, for those wanting to weigh in on BBY's next move, options may be the way to go. The stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 37% sits higher than just 14% of readings in its annual range, suggesting short-term options are pricing in relatively low volatility expectations.
