GameStop’s Q2 preview
The second quarter of the year will serve as a landmark for GameStop in a couple of ways. First, the company should continue to post substantially better results compared to a pandemic-stricken 2020, as a turnaround in the retailer’s fortunes continues to take shape.
Second, this will be the debut earnings season for CEO Matt Furlong. Will the executive introduce something new to support GameStop’s turnaround story and fuel investor sentiment? Will the new management team issue guidance for the remainder of the year?
Otherwise, measure the company’s key financial metrics against the following benchmarks:
- Wall Street projects $1.12 billion in revenues, for 19% YOY growth.
- Analysts also see adjusted net loss per share landing at $0.67, better than 2020’s $1.40.
- GameStop exited Q1 with $771 million in cash and not much in debt on the balance sheet.
Lastly, see below the trajectory of GameStock stock price over the past 12 months. Clearly, shares have been on a wild roller coaster ride that has been overwhelmingly bullish: returns of nearly 2,500% since this time last year and eye-popping annualized volatility of 278%.
