On December 10, video game retailer GameStop Corp reported third quarter earnings for its fiscal 2019 (13-week period ended November 2, 2019) that were simply terrible. Shares of GME were down big after-hours on December 10. GAAP net sales were down 26% year-over-year last quarter, hitting $1.4 billion, while the company’s GAAP operating loss came in at ~$0.05 billion, an improvement versus an operating loss of $0.5 billion (due to a large goodwill impairment charge) in the same period last fiscal year. GameStop halted its common dividend program in the middle of 2019, which freed up substantial cash flow for share buybacks and deleveraging efforts. Investors looking to avoid disruptions to their dividend income streams should consider utilizing Valuentum’s Dividend Cushion ratio to avoid value traps (read more about the importance of our Dividend Cushion ratio here).
