2 star stocks poised to jump: Gamestop?

Asus Eee Pad Transformer 16GB BUNDLE with Free Digital Games Bonus:  Backordered

So while Motley Fool is pushing out boring, drab,  Re-Hash festival articles to suggest Gamestop is going to drop because Best Buy and Amazon also sell Pre-owned Software....or something...

Gamestop appears set to cut into Best Buy and Amazon's tablet selling businesses.

I mean sure Amazon will sell off a gazzillion KINDLE FIRE SALES....  But Gamestop isn't doing a FIRE SALE of any kind and appears to be doing quite well with their Gaming Tablets (despite actually selling them for a profit).

It's simple.

Do you want:

Competitor  Tablet A)   No Free Games pre-installed on it.   $500


Gamestop   Tablet A)  7 Free Games pre-installed + Kongregate.       $500


I think I know which one is the better deal.

P.S. Gee, I can't wait for Rick Munarriz's next "Throw This Stock Away" Article set to go Live on Motley Fool's Gamestop Chart's page on Christmas Eve... boooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnngggg!

P.P.S.  Of course I jest about the Rick Munarriz "Throw This Stock Away" article.  I have no idea if he is going to crank one out.

But he might as well....  That's all that happens on this website.

We have had at least 2 if not 3 "2 star stocks poised to plunge: Gamestop" articles this year alone.

2 of them.....

What's the point????


You push the same article out a 2nd time offering absolutely nothing new from when you had the article out the 1st time because why???

I don't get it.

Backordered could imply great business, but it could also imply poor supply line.  Backordered isn't what you want to be seeing at retailers this early in the season.  Potential buyers aren't going to wait to put it under the tree even if it's cheaper.

I do agree about the MF articles being inconsistant and  one would think,  more detrimental to them than helpful.  Then again, who are we, the everyday users of the system to say how their business model is best represented?

GME isn't going anywhere.  They have consitently shown that they are an agile company that enters new marketspaces and thrives. 

With the aquisition of Kongregate last year and the buying/selling of used tablets and ipods, they are continuing to inovate and not stagnate like many of these Fool articles tend to imply. 

 Also, they keep buying back stock like no one's business.  They currently have a $500 stock buyback program active.  $500 stock buyback on a $3.2 market cap...
