Better stock up on those coaxial cables and batteries. Electronics chain RadioShack could run out of cash sometime next year, Moody's credit ratings agency said Tuesday. "Barring a cash infusion, RadioShack will not have much of a cash cushion to draw upon as it scrambles to remain relevant in the increasingly competitive mobile phone and consumer electronics business," Moody's said in a note. RadioShack did not immediately respond to request for comment. In the most recent quarter ended May 3, the company posted an operating loss of $81 million. Over the same period, its cash balance shrank to $62 million, Moody's said. Earlier this year, RadioShack had announced plans to close about 1,100 U.S. stores. But a disagreement with lenders caused the chain to dial back this plan to close up to 200 stores a year over the next three years.
