Do you have a source for this claim?
Why would an institution or any other investor hold a stock and short it as a hedge (particularly this one)? Given GME's cost to borrow that would be a losing proposition no matter what the stock did.
The point is that you're just picking points in time when the stock is down to be vocal about your negative bias. if an investor held the stock since 2012, he's more than doubled his money, which is way better than what the market delivered over that time. why not highlight that?
And to your point about last year, I don't recall you posting here at the beginning of 2014 but only since the end of 2014 (December). So in keeping YOUR score, let's use a starting point of when you started posting here and bashing Tytus. What other time frame makes sense in measuring your performance (that is, your really bad performance)?
since you're so good at keeping score, maybe you can tell us how GME has done relative to the indices since you started posting here three months ago. Don't forget to include the divvy in your calculations!
slapped? the stock has generated an annualized total return of 31.6% over the last two years versus 21.5% for the S&P 500. Huge outperformance with this stock even with the correction.
price to sales is well above 1. You need to included the debt (EV/Sales).
I agree with your points about the false narrative, though.
As for the ownership, it's definitely weird. I don't know how that gets resolved...
Brains like yours? Saying this stock can't move higher for the last two and a half months while it rallied 20% in your face. You and Seymour need to think things through. AT&T can't buy/sell/trade merchandise as well as GME can. People turn over their cell phones and tablets more often than they do consoles so this is a great extension of the company's strength.
Retailers come and go. But it's wrong to conclude that every electronics/mobile device retailer will be the next CC/RSH just like it's wrong to assume that every physical media retailer is the next Blockbuster.
GME has carved out a valuable niche in the industry with loyal customers, rising market share and opportunity to expand its footprint. If you want proof, just look at the mountains of cash the company has generated and returned to investors over the years.
how was anyone directly harmed by this horrible crime you speak of? Who lost how much?
at least he's making a call about where the earnings and the stock may go. What do you do but make personal attacks that aren't constructive?
ah, that thoughtful reply that you recycle often. are you this big a jerk when you're not hiding behind the anonymity of chat rooms? Prob not as you're too cowardly to be this obnoxious in person.
