    Wow a company with low growth and a relatively low P/E for its sector with minimal future potential, and only share buybacks/divis

    seems like a great growth stock.... NOT

    Let them keep wasting their cash until they have none...Then what? What happens when their operating cash disappears... the stock which has a relatively lower float now will tank so hard and so fast you won't even see it coming.

    • you have new systems coming out with NO backwards compatibility and a streaming service for previous gen games which is DIRECT download... you have NEW systems which do not directly support gamestop, except in theory for hardware sales....

      Hardware sales are LOW margin... even for the manufacturers.... if at all....

      Software and apps are the money makers....

      Hardware are only high margin for companies like apple that charge a huge premium... gamestop can try to attempt to be a tablet/phone trading place... but ebay and craigslist are INFINITELY better places to sell them plus sell them back to apple directly...

      Gamestop's new business ventures are a joke... their direct download service are a joke... They do not make software and they are simply a distributer of other people's property and their only high margin business is slowly dissipating... Gaming in general has been on a decline for a long time, and I am sorry but the first to know list that is being pumped for gamestop's ps4 sales is not going to save their earnings report....

      The share buybacks and dividends are a COMPLETE joke for a company this volatile there is no capital protection to your investment by putting money into gamestop... this is not a utility or safe haven.... The stock is up huge because of the shorts getting in way too early...

      The fundamental value is not nearly what this is trading at.... This will be the biggest bubble to burst.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • P.S the propaganda lately pumping gamestop and the CEO's attempts at highlighting ALL strengths and NO weaknesses.... is absolutely ridiculous IMO...

        You have to look at all potential for gamestop... And FYI the growth rate for some NEW business model like trading tablets will naturally be high until it cannibalizes and stops and eventually nobody goes there because they'll realize they are getting ripped off.
