Recent News & Updates
GameStop: Retail Investors Are Just Half The Story, Don't Invest Into Short Squeezes
The SEC recently released a report examining meme stocks and the short squeeze at GameStop and there are several important insights. The share price didn’t soar due to short covering, there was no gamma squeeze or naked short-selling and many hedge funds were long the stock. There was no short squeeze in the last week of January and the reason the share price remains high could be a lack of short sellers. Overall, I think GameStop’s market valuation can’t remain disconnected from the fundamentals forever, but picking up and timing a sizeable short position could be close to impossible.
GameStop: The Fundamental View
GameStop's stock is still above its pre-squeeze levels despite bleak growth perspectives. The balance sheet is the outstanding fundamental pillar because of excellent stock buyback and stock issuance decisions of the management. While the management has always been shareholder-friendly, the business is still suffering from competition and the lack of growth. Although I sold the stock too early in the midst of the squeeze, I am satisfied with a 215% return. At current levels, the stock seems to be overvalued.
GameStop: With Short Interest Of Less Than 15% Don't Expect Another Squeeze
GameStop continues to be a struggling video gaming retailer with limited upside and no ability to create additional shareholder value anytime soon. With short interest of less than 15%, investors shouldn’t expect to see another squeeze happening in the following months. We stick to our opinion that it’s better to avoid GameStop, especially since its stock is extremely overvalued at the current price.
