Company Description

Why We Like It:
GameStop Corp. is in the services sector. They operate over 6,600 stores in over 15 countries selling video games and related equipment. A few days ago GME broke out past resistance near $53.25. Traders quickly bought the dip yesterday and GME looks poised to test and bypass its August 22nd high (which was $56.08). If this rally continues GME could see a short squeeze. The most recent data listed short interest at 18% of the 114 million share float.

I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $55.50. If triggered our target is $63.00 but more conservative traders may want to exit near $60.00, which could prove to be round-number, psychological resistance.

Trigger @ 55.50

Suggested Position: buy GME stock @ (trigger)
