GameStop Corp (GME) is a leading specialty retail business based in the US. It opened the day at $189.87 after a previous close of $189.95. During the day the price has varied from a low of $186.50 to a high of $193.44. The latest price was $190.23 (25 minute delay). GameStop is listed on the NYSE and employs 12,000 staff. All prices are listed in US Dollars.
GameStop’s stock skyrocketed in late January after users of the Reddit board wallstreetbets began hyping it and lambasting hedge funds that shorted it. The wild moves led some brokers to restrict trading in the stock, contributing to a sharp drop. Since then, the stock has been very volatile but generally moved up, though it has not regained the January high.
Controversy over the stock erupted after its wild moves led to restrictions from some brokers on the stock’s sales. While those have passed, it remains prominent among the group of meme stocks driven in large part by social media activity. The stock has surged this year from about $17 a share, but it’s impossible to predict how this stock will move from here.
Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, GameStop's share price has had significant positive movement.
Its last close price was $190.23, which is 97.88% up on its pre-crash value of $4.04 and 5,872.87% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the shares fell as low as $3.18.
If you had bought $1,000 worth of GameStop shares at the start of February 2020, those shares would have been worth $964.54 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $48.00.

Valuing GameStop stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GameStop's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GameStop's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.86. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into GameStop's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GameStop's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $111.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GameStop's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 7.8 million GameStop shares held short by investors – that's known as GameStop's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 7.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GameStop shares can be evaluated.
GameStop's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GameStop shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GameStop shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). GameStop's SIR currently stands at 2.09. In other words for every 100,000 GameStop shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2090 shares are currently held short.
However GameStop's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GameStop shares, or, against the total number of tradable GameStop shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GameStop's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GameStop shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GameStop shares, roughly 126 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against GameStop.

We're not expecting GameStop to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
GameStop's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GameStop shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GameStop shares which in turn could have impacted GameStop's share price.
Over the last 12 months, GameStop's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.38 up to $483. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GameStop's is -2.0715. This would suggest that GameStop's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, GameStop has bucked the trend.
