I came across this article the other day. Talks about how GME will use the technology behind the aquisitions they made into streaming / cloud technology. They continue to develop their "non-retail" strategy.
If you read the comments at the end of that article, you realize why the short interest is so high with gamestop. People just aren't seeing how gamestop is evolving along with a changing market. Everyone keeps comparing them to Blockbuster. The difference is that Blockbuster management was unable to see the changing market coming, and when they finally did see it, they were unable to react. Gamestop is going to be a leader in the next generation of gaming just like they were a leader in the physical gaming industry. If you are willing to hold this stock for a year or two, I think we are going to see one amazing short squeeze.
