Shares of video game retailer GameStop (NYSE: GME) continued its incredible run on Wednesday, climbing as much as 93.7% in morning trading. By midday, shares had settled slightly and were "only" up 63.2% at 12:55 p.m. EST.
The biggest reason for GameStop's rise this week was a Monday announcement of holiday sales and new board members. Holiday quarter sales rose 4.8% on a comparable-store basis and e-commerce sales jumped 308%. Management didn't give guidance for the full quarter, but did say it expected comparable-store sales and profits to rise in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
