Experts’ comments on GameStop

GameStop ended Q1 with $1.035 billion in cash and equivalents. Last week GameStop launched a digital wallet to store cryptocurrencies and NFTs. As per CNBC’s Steve Kovack:

Its heyday is over, that’s for sure. It seems like everyone’s hinging their hopes on this NFT thing that they haven’t really explained how it’ll work other than launching a wallet that only works in a web browser the other day.

The stock is still down 20% for the year. Discussing the Grapevine-headquartered company on CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, Ritholtz’ Josh Brown said:

I’m trying to figure out if it trades more with crypto than Nasdaq. It doesn’t really feel like it’s an index kind of stock. It doesn’t seem to have any real correlation to anything in the tech market per se.
