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, "Although GameStop’s earnings missed estimates in second-quarter fiscal 2018, revenues beat the same. Also, earnings and revenues declined year over year. Well, dismal sales in new video game software, Technology Brands, pre-owned and value video game products hurt the company’s top line. Owing to top line decline, the company witnessed soft margins as both gross and operating margin contracted in the quarter. All these factors, along with management’s drab view for fiscal 2018 seems to have hurt GameStop’s stock that has underperformed the industry year to date. Nevertheless, GameStop has been undertaking several promotional activities to expand customer base. Also, we are encouraged by the rise in collectibles sales buoyed by continued expansion of licensed merchandise offerings and unique product offerings. Moreover, the company’s venture into digital, iDevice and gaming tablet businesses bodes well." (11/13/2018)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "For 4Q17 results due Thurs, we expect revenues of $36.7M (consensus $36.1M), EBITDA of $28.3M (consensus $27.4M), and earnings per common unit of $0.21 (consensus $0.19), all above consensus. Already announced, a 4Q17 distribution of 0.4225 is unchanged, yielding 15.6% on an annual basis." (2/12/2018)
