What are Wall Street analysts saying about GameStop stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GameStop stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of GameStop have not only declined but also underperformed the industry in the past six months. The company, which has been holding exploratory talks relating to a potential transaction, has been grappling with falling sales in core business, affected by intense competition and leadership issues. Meanwhile, gradual shift to digital and mobile downloads is posing a threat to its software business. We also note that the company’s Technology Brand has been witnessing soft sales since the past few past few quarters. In first-quarter fiscal 2018, sales in this segment fell 16.1%. This may be due to overlap in AT&T’s dealer compensation structure and lower promotional activity. Nevertheless, GameStop has been undertaking several initiatives to augment revenues. Also, we are encouraged by the rise in collectibles sales buoyed by continued expansion of licensed merchandise offerings and unique product offerings." (8/14/2018)
