Cramer additionally faulted administration for not offering steering or providing particulars about GameStop’s transformation plan. The firm has been lowering its retailer rely and is predicted to be engaged on a plan to spice up its digital operations and compete within the web age.
“As long as it’s in the triple digits, it’s trading like the turnaround has already happened,” he stated. “If you buy the stock here, you’re betting that Ryan Cohen’s plan will be wildly successful, which seems like a stretch given that we don’t even know what the plan is yet.”
