Earnings Preview: What To Expect From Gamestop Today
Gamestop Corp. GME is scheduled to report earnings after Wednesday’s close. In 2021, the stock hit a record high of $483.00 and is currently trading near $175. The stock is prone to big moves after reporting earnings and can easily gap up if the numbers are strong. Conversely, if the numbers disappoint, the stock can easily gap down. To help you prepare, here is what the Street is expecting:
The company is expected to report a loss of ($0.22)/share on $1.19 billion in revenue. Meanwhile, the so-called Whisper number is a loss of ($0.46)/share. The Whisper number is the Street’s unofficial view on earnings.
A Closer Look At The Fundamentals:
The company’s earnings took a hit after March 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Earlier this year the stock soared and become the poster child for the meme-stock craze in Q1 2021. Since then, the stock has settled down but is still trading much higher than where it was this time next year. The company is expected to lose money in 2021, 2022, and 2023. Investors want to see some glimmer of hope for the price to stay at these lofty levels.
A Closer Look At The Technicals:
Technically, the stock is digesting a huge rally it saw at the end of 2020 and in early 2021. The bulls want to see the stock break above $255 and the bears want to see it beak down below support near $132. Until either level is breached, we have to expect this sideways action to continue.
