    “We came away from the event (E3 video games conference) very encouraged that the forthcoming launches of the Xbox One and PS4 along with related software will drive a resurgence in sales and hence EPS growth at GameStop."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • R.W. Baird’s Colin Sebastian today reiterates an Outperform rating on shares of video game retailer Gamestop (GME), after meeting with the company’s management, along witinvestors, and concluding that the company is holding off competition by “ successfully leveraging its Power-Up rewards member base and Buy/Sell/Trade (BST) model to protect its leading market share

    Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of a rebound in software demand will be GameStop. The company's stock price has declined as investors perceive a rapid shift of game sales to digital downloads. While we believe that such a shift is underway, we expect digital sales to comprise only 10% of next-generation software sales in 2014, and to grow by 1,000 basis points per year for the next four years. As this shift occurs, we expect overall software sales to grow by a similar amount, suggesting that packaged software sales will decline by only 25% or so by 2018. We believe that GameStop's customers will largely resist digital downloads, as the typical GameStop customer perceives tremendous value in the ability to trade in a used game; as a result, we expect GameStop to gain market share of physical sales, and we think that GameStop can actually grow its game revenue for several more years. GameStop bears will point to digital sales growth, but we expect the company's earnings and cash flow to grow by $100 million or so each of the next several years, and we expect management to continue its past practice of returning the bulk of its earnings to shareholders. As such, we continue to believe that GameStop shares will appreciate for the balance of 2014.

    1.NPD Poll-74% of players prefer physical discs
    2.GME makes millions on digital anyway
    3 GME has(much) better than 50% market share on new game releases so on Watch Dogs which sold 4 million in the first few days GME had about 4132 million in sales and $26million in profits in 3 days.
    5. E3 is promising many more Watch Dogs equivalent games going on sale this year and next
    6. Kinect-less XBox One is "flying off the shelves"
    7. Mario Kart 8 and soon to come Zelda wil make console war a 3 horse race again as WiiU is resurrected.
    8.Radio Shack imminent demise presents opportunity for GME to gain market shrae particularly for its new Technology Brand stores which will contribute $1 billion to revenues over the next couple of years more than off-setting any revenues lost to digital which digital sales by GME are also projected to exceed $1billion in the same time frame.
    9.3.25% dividend yield
    10. Short squeeze like last year has just begun
    11. Share buyback assure continued increase in EPS-$400million reserved for buyback

    Happy to be long.
