How much is Overstock.com worth, without its Medici Ventures subsidiary? Brittain Ladd doesn't offer any estimates in this Forbes piece, but he does give us a really interesting list of potential suitors for the company.
An idea I have come up with is the potential of FedEx, UPS or XPO Logistics acquiring Overstock. I conduct research on e-commerce globally and I have identified the value of large transportation companies becoming retailers.
What's interesting to me about this potential scenario is that Amazon is the best logistics company in North America. They're a great retailer because of their logistical prowess, not the other way around. Could another logistics company step into the retail space? You bet! But they better hit the ground, running.
