  • Anyone that seriously wants to get into daytrading must also have the skill set in options trading, which can help reduce the overall risk.of day trading.

    But, most.investors are simply better off with a diversified portfolio of investments (which pay dividends). I invest outside the markets in collectibles that go up in value overtime.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Reason for going with a lower Beta stock versus a super hugh one is you have much less risk. With Gamestop, you have a stock that potentially can grow uowards of 52% in share price versus where it is today. Swing Trading a High Beta stock doesn't work for most individual investors who do not have the time, skill set, or even a proper stock broker account (that doesn't charge $7 or more per transaction). Day trading isn't something most investors can handle.

    A stock with a beta of 9 or 10 means that it can drop 9 or 10 times what the market does if it drops. Buy into a high beta stock that is say 20% below recent highs doesn't guarantee you can swing a profit in it. That stock may swing down another 20% and never recover.

    Gamestop is a much safer investment not because.of its.lower BETA, which is a very minor factor, but because of the dividend, share buyback program, and history of solid free cash flow and EPS growth and Revenue growth.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Gamestop's Beta of 1.12586 is higher than many stocks in the bricks and mortor retail sector. Higher than Target, Best Buy, Walmart.... Different sector but higher than CVS. It is nearly the same as ATVI, whose beta is 1.26.

    Of course a high Beta stock like Electronic Arts is over 10 points.

    But, still... Gamestop's Beta is far higher than you make it sound like.

    When the market rebounds it can only go to 26s? It's 52 week high is $47.83.

    What Vested Shares mean

    by varchild2010 Jun 25, 2016 5:55 PM

    "It helps companies to not have a major drain on Cash Flow if they pay out the pay or award in currency."

    You've obviously forgotten the word "don't" as in "... if they DON'T pay out the pay or award in currency" - and in doing so, you've just confirmed exactly what I've said. If they pay in currency, then it certainly is a drain on cash flow. But, you've also said that the company is purchasing the shares - how is purchasing shares not a drain on cash flow? Whether cash is used to buy shares or given outright to the director, cash is being used, is it not? There is no cash in the process - newly issued shares are given to the directors.

    Your entire post is littered with incorrect statements. I assure you, everyone reading is laughing at you as a result of your twisted beliefs.

    You are so stupid. So they were GIVEN the shares on a particular day - NOTHING WAS PURCHASED, NO MONEY WAS SPENT TO PURCHASE SHARES. How dense are you?

    I am totally shocked that there are people who are so stupid. It is impossible - you cannot have such a twisted mind, or believe that others are taking you seriously.

  • Considering that you posted the topic where the subject says that a director bought shares, clearly your understanding of vested shares is zilch.

    What Vested Shares mean

    by varchild2010 Jun 25, 2016 5:55 PM

    "The shares are in fact purchased at whatever value they are on Vesting Day....Are they shares purchased out of thin air?"

    You continue proving your stupidity. These shares are not purchased and are in fact created out of thin air - they are newly issued shares.

    "They become a purchase of shares from amongst the outstanding share count of the company more often than not"

    Nope - they issue new shares and simply give them to the director - no shares are purchased by anyone.

    "What I like about this is..."

    As a pumper, you will like everything.

    What you have highlighted is that no insider, especially not officers have purchased shares. Why do you suppose that Mr. Raines has not pulled a single dollar out of his pocket in the past 5 years to purchase shares? Maybe that is because the company also showers him with free shares? Looking through the history of insider transactions, in fact, all I see are insiders selling shares hand over fist. Instead of going through all of the filings, maybe you should look on insidercow, as that will be the easiest for you to understand. Tell me, why are your director buys not shown? Because no shares were purchased. What it does show is selling all over the place - they should be ashamed - it should be unbelievable for anyone who considers insider transactions to be of importance.

    The subject of your prior post is clearly a lie. Keep it up pumper.

  • My point is gme will probably have a base at 25 and when market rebounds, it can only goes up to 26s for a long time to come. This is kind of stock you buy it and forget about it.

    If you care so much about daily movement, why don't you buy a high beta stock and swing trade it?

  • Store traffic was crazy at the GameStop near my house. I went because Sony was there doing a demo of VR headset. Line around the corner to experience. Inside it was swamped with folks buying and trading stuff. Sunday is the last day for 50% more trade in credit.

  • Looks like some one needs an education on what Vested Shares mean. Vested Shares are not stock pulled out of thin air. They are typically restricted shares part of a pay package or given out as an award... It helps companies to not have a major drain on Cash Flow if they pay out the pay or award in currency.

    The Vested Shares in the case of the directors of Gamestop have a value of N/A....Because they start out as unvested shares. A time period is assigned to them for fully vesting the shares. In this case it is 1 year or Investor Conference day, whichever happens first. So, these vested shares sre clearly tied to Investor Conferences.

    While unvested, if a director walks away from the comoany before the Vesting Day, Gamestop has the option to completely repurchase the unvested shares. In this case, the Director walls away with nothing...

    Also, Pinky claims these shares are Share Dillution. While the shares (unvested) are not in the open market, when they are Fully Vested.... The shares are in fact purchased at whatever value they are on Vesting Day....Are they shares purchased out of thin air?

    Nope. They become a purchase of shares from amongst the outstanding share count of the company more often than not. They are essentially giving ownership portion of the company to the director.

    What I like about this is that during the unvested period directors are incentivised to work hard and earn them and in turn recover the share price higher... This year they received an unusual 5400 shares due to share price dropping... The incentive is thus signifcantly greater than last year and on the heels of an analyst uograde on Q2 earnings expectations no less. So Pinky can make all the Chest Pounding Insults Pinky wishes to make. But, this is a RELEVANT thing to track year to year. I felt the need to share it and I did and the use of PICKED UP versus BUY (the original article was revised) I think misses the point.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • You sir are an Absolute Disgrace to GME investors. Your understanding of Vested Shares is ZILCH!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Dorectors aren't being handed shares as you pretend here. These shares are Restricted Stock and as such have a Vesting period of 1 year. The directors receive NOTHING should they quit the company before the shares are fully Vested. Hence, this encourages Dorectors to EARN the shares while they are unvested.

    Hence..... It is very significant to see Vested Shares given while a stock is near 52-week low and an analyst has upgraded their earnings expectation.

    While shares are unvested, their is ZERO share dillution.

    In other words.... Get your Facts Straight.

    The shares are in fact purchased once they are fully vested.

  • 23. May video game sales were up 18% based on data provided by reputable agency NPD!

    Can you help me add more the if you feel like we need more?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Completely you are out of your mind classifying these actions as nothing more than Shareholder Dillution. Buybacks decrease dillution. Gamestop plans $75 million at least for share buybacks this year. Find me $75 million out of this acquisition and then we can talk dillution. Until then you are out of your mind. Heck even if it was 6000 shares st $26, it ends up being less than 1.25 million. Versus 75 million.

    You sir have a bizzarro way of looking at pay packages.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • But, treating these actions as irrelevant is clearly what makes you FREAKING STUPID.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The payment of shares isn't even dillution on the day they happen....Hence the N/A under the column VALUE. They are either options or restricted shares carrying a 1 year mark.

    And they do not come close anyhow to the amount of share buyback Gamestop does every year anyhow. So, even if they were instant dillution, the buybacks more than offset this.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Plain as day. Shares are not made outnof thin air. You sre now desperately trying to save yourself from your incoherrant rantings.

    These shares are in fact part of a pay package. It isn't share dillution for share dillution's sake. It is a pay package of shares for the directors.

    It is no different than an employee getting a payment. We do not call this payment as MONEY OUT OF THIN AIR. It is just a payment of shares instead of currency.

    And it is avsolutely relevant.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • You have no point. Your logic is pathetic.
