    Why not P/E of Verizon TMobile AT&T?

    by varchild2010 Mar 30, 2016 12:20 PM

    I take one statement back.

    I do have personal opinions on AMAZON's product pricing.
    Like how I was able to recently get a video game for less in price than the AMAZON (PRIME) price or any of their 3rd party sellers.

    I do have issue that on AMAZON, when you look up an older video game title, you have sellers listing titles as "Very Good Condition" and then in the description text you discover that you aren't getting the original case for the disk!

    How the heck is it Very Good condition when the disks ship in generic jewel cases or paper sleeves?

    Why not P/E of Verizon TMobile AT&T?

    I only believed DPS to be heavy risk when it IPOed. Back then we are talking about June 2008....Remember 2008? The stock market collapse?

    DPS share price consistently fell from its opening IPO price down to $15 and even less than that.

    Given that in the following years there were some down quarters regarding sales due to the annual decline in Soda sales happening across the board with all Soda companies, and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group also ended up losing the bottling/shipping business back then for Monster Energy Drink.

    The heavy risk was figuring out how to value DPS on the back drop of losing Monster Energy Drink to Coca-Cola and the drop in Soda sales.

    Figuring that out requires the same process as figuring out the value of Gamestop. Gamestop has issues... Of course, they are widely known.
    But, to suggest they aren't being or showing signs of successfully dealing with the issues is to show complete distaste for their entire business strategy.

    But, I don't see how one can completely do that given the results thus far. Collectibles Sales and Tech Brands sales have been growing by double digits! Year after Year after Year of double digit growth for Tech Brands.

    I personally believe in staying away from a company like TESLA if you have as much knowledge of the electric vehicle / battery business as I do. I have next to no knowledge on this type of business. Therefore, I can not comment intelligently on TESLA. Nor would I ever invest in it until I actually did some hard core research.

    Same goes for AMAZON. I find AMAZON to be too big and confusing and monstrous in what they do to even remotely be able to figure them out. I stay away from businesses I do not understand.

    Right now, since I can not understand how AMAZON PRIME has gotten to be popular, I stay away from that. I have no personal opinion on TESLA or AMAZON.

    Weird obsession undermines my argument?

    I brought up Comacast and DPS... Not just DPS. I brought them up as just 2 examples of how companies can diversify and turn their business around to much success.

    That was the point of what I wrote. Yet, you stupidly chose to turn around what I wrote and claim I was trying to compare Gamestop's business with DPS and Comcast.

    That was not my intent. I was only mentioning how you keep devaluing the Diversification strategy of Gamestop.

    Like I said. How you can actually be a LONG a stock that you seem to have ZERO confidence in the non-Video Game side of Gamestop's business?

    To assign a 10 P/E to Gamestop when Best Buy currently trades at a 13 P/E is absurd!

    The historic average P/E for Gamestop has been 9. However, when you have new businesses generating higher profit margins and generating enough Revenue to offset the headwinds to Video Games, how can you sit there and think Gamestop only gets a bump up of 1 P/E point?

    You are supposed to be LONG a stock because you support the C.E.O's business strategy and believe the current share price to be undervaluing the future business. You sir claim to be LONG Gamestop, while frowning upon Gamestop's entire business strategy.

    That is like Shorting GOLD upon the announcement of a major GOLD Shortage and Countries cornering the market on it. It is backwards logic.

    I hope you are playing the Options Market to deal with your hypocritical mentality.

    The funny thing is. Sony and Microsoft would have to lock everyone's video games into Cloud Space. You will not be allowed to download a preowned digital, or even the original copy digital video game.to a hard drive.

    Even if they inserted some code to make it difficult for Hackers, nonetheless if digital trade-ins involved downloading entire games to a hard drive, some hacker is going to find a way to copy the game to an external hard drive...Then start trading off infinite copies of the video game costing Sony or Microsoft untold amounts of financial damage.

    So, all digital games would be stuck in the cloud. Thereby, customers that can't purchase a subscription to Xbox or Playdtation Plus service, will suddenly not be able to play their video games. Much less trade them in for another game.

    For financial reasons, or issues with a credit card / ID Theft, a customer could end up unable to play games they bought with their hard earned money.

    Again, to the Shorts and/or Gamestop Haters (Arp590), digital trade-in sounds sexy until it is put into practice.

    and just out of curiosity...if you think a defensive consumer staple like DPS is "heavy risk" what do you classify buying a cyclical sector stock like Amazon or Tesla?

    Bro give it a rest. I can be long a stock without expecting multiple expansion from 6 to 17. I think a 10 P/E is more realistic.

    You keep going back to DPS...do you want a parade or something? Great you made money on a consumer staple stock that benefited from an increasingly health conscious consumer base drinking more ice teas and non soda beverages!! It is a totally different business than GME and your weird obsession with comparing the two kind of undermines your arguments.

    If that were true you wouldn't have a consistently lopsided Anti-Gamestop hatred to the point you spend most of your time insulting Gamestop investors rather than offering an unbiased assessment of Gamestop's businesses.

    No one that is unbiased would have the need to write posts like "you're desperate lol!"

    That is the behavior of what is expected from a Paid Basher. Not an unbiased opinion maker.

    I could sell off my stake in GME first thing tomorrow morning and bank a NICE profit.

    All while arp590 parades around with NOTHING in his portfolio because he doesn't have a stock portfolio..... He doesn't have a position in Gamestop... He doesn't have the BALLS to put his own money where his mouth is.

    Anyone can log onto a stock forum and BASH BASH BASH whatever stock you feel like when you don't have a stake in the company.... That's child's play.

    But, long term investing is about finding undervalued SHARE PRICES......that have solid businesses backing them.

    There is no perfect business in the Stock Market to invest in.... You can't claim to LAUGH at Gamestop that has some headwinds as if this is something highly unusual in the retail sector.

    I mean seriously.... name a retail company and I can show you all of the headwinds that company has. A lot of it is already written in the company's official statement on the company's forward looking statements.

    Every earnings report has a list (required by SEC law) of the types of headwinds that the company could experience which could impact the company's business. They are impact statements.

    So.... I took a heavy risk in DPS and it worked out for me..... I take risks in lots of stocks....

    I have 8+ years of Investing experience and have bought a HOUSE almost entirely off of Stock Market gains and success that I have had.

    I am pretty confident that I can recognize an undervalued stock when I see one.

    Too bad BURP590 doesn't have the courage to actually invest anything in the market. No, just wants to badmouth other people's investment choices.... Offering ZERO real substance.... Same goes for IBrowning.... Mr. "I am long the stock" that thinks P/E of 6 is perfectly reasonable for a company with just over 100 million outstanding shares, carrying a 4 - 5% Dividend Yield, and produces more in 4th Quarter Revenues than their entire Market Cap.

    For someone so brag-a-docious know-it-all, I find it amusing you can not even come up with what you think would be a FAIR price to earnings multiple.

    You attack 16 to 17 P/E as unrealistic..... Yet can not tell us what a realistic P/E would be.

    I have you argued in a box. You claim to be long the stock so you can not come back and say...

    "Duhhhh I think 6 or less P/E is realistic."

    Either you are LYING about being long the stock, or you don't know how to invest.

    So let's have it... What is your fair assessment of Gamestop's P/E?

    For someone claiming to be LONG this stock, you sure have a lot of endlessly stupid NAYSAYING and sure sound like "I have no money invested either way" arp590 who should be on everyone's ignore list.

    Dude you have like ZERO money long or short on Gamestop.

    Who are you to criticize any investor??? Or to laugh at any investor???

    My average unit cost for Gamestop is less than $29 a share. Share's closed today at $31.76.

    I collected a quarterly dividend payment this month.

    And some how I am desperate???

    How am I wrong in the Comparison? 50% of Gamestop business is AT&T Telecom by 2019.

    This year the amount of Gamestop's business in selling Smart Phones and AT&T Telecom services is going to be north of 30%.

    So yes... I agree....It is NICE that Gamestop is in a business right now that is growing by leaps and bounds that is deserving of a P/E that is more than TWICE what Gamestop's forward P/E is today.

    For someone who claims to be "Long the stock" you sure sound more like a Naysaying, Short.
