2021.12.02 19:51 AleKzito What to expect from the upcoming GME's Q3 Earnings & How to value The Stonk using only fundamental analysis - STEP ONE

What to expect from the upcoming GME's Q3 Earnings & How to value The Stonk using only fundamental analysis - STEP ONE The following post revolves around the Fundamental analysis of GME. It is based on GME’s former Q2 financial statement and its different methods of valuing GME's share price compared to its current price 180$.
"Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
"Buy a stock the way you would buy a house. Understand and like it such that you'd be content to own it in the absence of any market."
  • Take your time to pick a good plant, give it time, and let it grow.
  • Don't rush into buying a stock. Take care in researching the company for your portfolio, understand its business, consider the risks and valuation, then hold on
TL;DR: Consensus EPS estimate Vs actual EPS (or an earnings beat or miss) is what actually move our beloved ticker. But it is not the only force. Current share price Vs real share Value also moves it. Consensus/Estimations vs Factual. And always has been. Consensus is indeed the Earnings Whisperer. However, somehow, GME ends up losing ground despite an earnings beat. What are the real causes? GameStop last issued its quarterly earnings results on September 7th, 2021. The reported EPS ($0.76) for the Q2 (earnings per share, btw), missed the consensus estimate of ($0.67) by $0.09. GME earned $1.18 billion during Q2, compared to the consensus estimate of $1.12 billion, that's why we saw red the day after Q2. Its revenue was up 25.6% compared to the same quarter last year, but it does not bother the market at all, because Consensus and Overvalued-share-price-sentiment dictated the price. GameStop has generated ($0.96) earnings per share over the last year. Earnings for GameStop are expected to grow in the coming year, from ($0.27) to $1.25 per share.
However, GME doesn’t actually need to have a positive EPS for issuing a dividend. RETAINED EARNINGS are the key words in here. Remember the ATM offerings? Good. Positive Free Cash Flow (FCF) would suffice too. GME may use its cash hoard throughout the latest ATM offering not only for investing in assets for the business, but to fund its dividend as earnings have been down. Just take as look to the current Balance Sheet (i.e. Total stockholders’ equity equals to 1,852,000,000$). Many well-known Fortune 500 companies have paid dividends in years where they posted negative EPS.

TA;DR: Q3 Earnings is around the corner. Q3 earnings will show the actual number of bananas needed in order to survive the forthcoming winter. Apes no need a rough estimation. They need to actually get out, count them and collect them. Some analysts are predicting that an Ape can only gather 0.22 bananas per trip, but Apes do not trust them. If Apes are able to gather more bananas per trip, then, they will be able to see the green spring, but, if they can’t or they rely on the analysts, then, they will see red faces in his boyfriend wife, until they finally starve.

GameStop will be holding an earnings conference call on Wednesday, December 8th at 5:00 PM Eastern. But first, let me tell you one thing about this post: It is not sugarcoated, and it might not fuel your Confirmation Bias hunger. This post is aimed to clear some misconceptions about GME’s fundamental analysis that I've seen in all past Earnings since January. This post will also cover GME’s shares Real Value and how the upcoming Q3 Earnings might impact its price.
Mandatory Warnings: Please, do not try to trade this stonk. This post does not constitute any financial advice whatsoever.
This post will not discuss about any short interest or whatsoever, nor any SHF fuckery, and neither the amount of times that the free float has been shorted. And, lastly, this post will not discuss how far GME price can reach in case a short squeeze could occur, which I firmly believe it could.
Ok, as B.B. King used to say, “let’s get down, let’s get down to business”.
Are you sick of getting disappointed into terrible earnings dips? Are you sick of seeing a big red dildo after an earnings beat? Stock DD or Due Diligence is arguably the most important step in investing. We all know the golden rule: You shouldn’t invest in something you don’t understand. Yet when it comes to shares many new investors find themselves stuck on how to analyze a stock. As a result, apes YOLO their money into a meme stock from Superstonk or any of the other can’t-name subreddits, or even worse, they get fooled into terrible stock DD’s. So, here’s how to analyze GME’s upcoming Earnings in 5 simple steps:

  • Step One: How to actually Value GME´s stock price
  • Step Two: Understand the Company and is Business Model
  • Step Three: Financials; How to Analyze GME's Balance Sheet and Income statement
  • Step Four: How GME’s Earnings have impacted the share price along the time
  • Step Five: Dilution Probabilities, Dividends and other factors

Step One: How to Value GME´s stock price What is GME’s Market Capitalization?
A company’s market cap or market Capitalization is how much the stock market determines a company is worth. it is calculated by the total market value of all outstanding shares.
Companies are often categories in terms of market cap as Large, mid, and small-cap.
Large cap companies
large cap companies generally have a minimum market capitalization of $10 billion or more. The top 50 companies according to float-adjusted market capitalization, can be considered Large Cap.
Large cap companies are more likely to show consistent returns over time rather than short-term gains. Their prices are likely to be less volatile. Large cap companies also tend to make regular dividend payments
Mid cap stocks
Mid-cap stocks generally have a market cap ranging from $2 billion to $10 billion. In terms of market capitalization, they may be considered stocks ranking from 51-100.
These stocks tend to be established companies in the process of expanding in industries that are expected to experience rapid growth. Because they don’t tend to be as established as large cap companies, they generally involve a higher level of risk.
Small cap stocks
Small cap companies are generally classified as having a market cap between $300 million and $2 billion and are often categorized as growth stocks. A growth stock is considered to have the potential for above-average growth but also a higher degree of risk.
Below this, stocks may also be considered micro-cap. Again, there is no set definition on these terms.
Why is this Important?
Each category can be a good investment strategy it’s just important to note that each group has different companies at varying levels of maturity. You shouldn’t buy a micro-cap and be surprised if it gets delisted instead of paying dividends. Likewise, you probably shouldn’t buy a Large Cap Bluechip and hope their share price goes to the moon overnight. Each has its pros and cons.
GME’s Market Capitalization: 15,3B, which is: Share Price (Currently at 200$) multiplied by the number of shares issued (In GME´s case is 76,49 million shares) = 15,3B
Let’s also pay attention to GME’s revenue trend:
GME's Revenue & Earnings
Chewy’s market cap is $26BN on $7.1BN of annual revenue, which is 3,66x times its annual total revenue. GME is nowadays priced at 2.73x its annual total revenue, quite behind. (Besides, GME’s e-commerce business is growing 5x faster than Chewy and already has 70% of online revenue).
Let’s see another example; Tesla’s market cap is $1.1T on $12BN annual revenue, which is 92x… hoooooly moooooly, GME can actually go much further (Bubble or not).
Amazon market cap as of November 30, 2021 is $1806.24 BN on a $458 BN of annual revenue, which is 3.94x times its annual total revenue.
Ok, now let’s try to compare it with a true competitor: Best Buy (BBY), who has a Market Cap of $32.7BN and its revenue is $47.26BN, which is 0.7x times its annual total revenue.
Let’s see both revenues compared within a historical chart:
Comparison between GME Market Cap trend and Best Buy
Can you see both trends? GME’s revenue has been decreasing whereas Best Buy has been increasing since 2016.
Ok, so you might be thinking: Wait, but a stock's intrinsic value, rooted in its business fundamentals, is not always the same as its current market Price.
Correct. Some people value stocks based on the belief that a stock's intrinsic value is wholly separate from its market price.
Active investors calculate a series of metrics to estimate a stock's intrinsic value and then compare that value to the stock's current market price.
Let’s dig on the 5 different Valuation methods or main approaches to value a business:

  1. Earnings Per Share (EPS)
EPS or Earnings Per Share is the portion of the profit earned for every ordinary share on issue. It is calculated by taking the net profit and dividing it by the number of ordinary shares, it is measured in cents per share. look at the trend of EPS over time and ensure that it is increasing rather than remaining stagnant or falling.
GME´s latest Q2 Earnings Per Share (EPS) --> -0.76
GME´s forecasted Earnings Per Share (EPS) --> -0.22
Quarterly Earnings Surprise Amount
Quarterly Earnings Forecast
EPS trend - Bullish AF!
GME is about to cross into the positive EPS category, which is going to potentially unlock more institutional buying that is currently blocked by rules like not investing in companies with negative P/E.
Note: According to Zacks Investment Research, based on 2 analysts' forecasts, the consensus EPS forecast for the quarter is $-0.22. The reported EPS for the same quarter last year was $-0.53. I think that only 2 estimates is bullshit, but it is what it is.

Amount of times that Consensus/Estimation Beat or Miss the actual Earnings - 2015-2012

  • 2. The cornerstone stock valuation metric is the P/E ratio
The P/E ratio equals the company's stock price divided by its most recently reported earnings per share (EPS). That means that GME is at -236X (at a 180$/share price and an (0.76) EPS).
As an example, let's calculate another P/E ratio. Let’s do it for Walmart. For its 2021 fiscal year, which ended on Jan. 31, 2021, the company reported diluted earnings per share of $4.75. At the time of this writing, the company's share price is $142.63.
To obtain Walmart's P/E ratio, simply divide the company's stock price by its EPS. Dividing $142.63 by $4.75 produces a P/E ratio of 30.02 for the retail giant.
A low P/E ratio implies that an investor buying the stock is receiving an attractive amount of value.
Buuuuuut GME’s earnings have been NEGATIVE! (Thus, EPS also)
The P/E ratio can be interpreted as the amount you pay for $1 in company profits. For example, if the P/E is 10, it means investors are willing to pay $10 for every $1 in company profits.
A company with a high P/E could be seen as overvalued or that investors are expecting large growth in the future, they can also be seen as riskier. In comparison, a company with a low P/E could be seen as undervalued or may have poor investor sentiment. A company with no profits will not have a PE. The average PE for a NYSE is around 15-20. PE is the basic ratio for a stock DD.
P/E 0/NA: The company has no earnings
P/E 1-14: The company is undervalued/has low investor sentiment regarding growth
P/E 15-20: Average
P/E 20+: The company is overvalued/has high investor sentiment regarding growth
However, as you can see with GME, a Stonk can have a negative P/E ratio. For example, if they are newly launched and have not accumulated earnings. Remember; “Newly launched” for later. On the other hand, a consistently negative P/E ratio run the risk of bankruptcy. Sounds familiar? Does the common Ape understand why the common investor, the common financial institutional and even Moody’s thought that GME’s debt had risk of being not paid and so it was on the verge of bankruptcy?
Ok, here you are a few other reasons why a stock might have negative EPS and a negative PE ratio:
  • Struggling business: The company might truly be struggling and is consistently spending more cash than it takes in just to stay afloat. As we have just explained. this company has a high chance of bankruptcy and is likely a bad investment.
  • Unprofitable growth stock: Many companies with strong revenue growth (like some tech stocks) are unprofitable. But people invest in them because they are growing fast and may become profitable in the future.
  • Let’s look at Spotify’s EPS numbers:
Spotify’s EPS twelve last months
  • And surely, we may all agree that Spotify is such a good company, and its future is bright. However, it is still growing and investing in itself, that’s why its EPS is negative.
  • Biotech stocks: It is very common for biotech stocks to have little to no revenue and high expenses. But they may be working on a new drug that will become immensely valuable in the near future. Which is not the case.
  • Change in accounting: Changes in accounting methods can sometimes cause EPS to go negative for a short period, even if the company didn't lose any money. Which is not the case.
  • One-time effects: A company may occasionally need to pay a big one-time expense. Or it needs to do a write-down of some major asset. That can cause EPS and PE to go negative temporarily. Let’s not forget the new leases of a new 530,000 square foot fulfillment center, the lease of a new customer care center or ending the period with no long-term debt…
    One good way to see whether negative earnings and negative PE are caused by accounting is to look at the cash flow statement, and we will go there later on. Spoiler: Cash Flow statement shows good health.

Why the negative PE ratio is confusing?
A negative PE ratio is particularly confusing because the significance of a big and small number is inverted.
In other words, a very negative number, like GME (GME is at -236X (at a 180$/share price and an (0.76) EPS)), is better than a number that's just slightly negative.
Let's imagine two hypothetical stocks that each cost $100 per share.
Company A has an EPS of -$100, which implies massive losses. But company B has an EPS of -$0.01, so it is on the verge of being profitable.
In these cases, company A has a negative P/E ratio of $100/-$100 = -1.
But company B, which is on the verge of profitability, has a "sky-high" negative P/E ratio of $100/-$0.01 = -10,000.
In this case, the bigger negative number is actually the better one. It means that the company's losses are minimal.
This is the opposite of a positive P/E ratio, where a smaller number is generally seen as a good thing, while a bigger number implies that the stock is more expensive.
Most financial sites show "n/a" if P/E is negative
The best financial information websites (including Stock Analysis) don't even show the P/E ratio if it's negative.
Instead, they show "n/a" (not applicable) or a dash where the P/E ratio is supposed to be. This is because a negative P/E ratio is confusing and not very informative.
Ok, let’s remember one thing from all this tedious writing: A company might have a negative P/E ratio yet be on a path to growth, remember that.
An investor should become alarmed if a company consistently shows a negative P/E ratio for a long period, for example, five years in a row. If this is the case, the company is not in good financial health.
So, let’s remember what the historical data tells us:
GME's historical P/E ratio - 2006-2021
GME’s EPS has been always positive but for the last couple of years. After 2018, when the dividend was cancelled.
Ok, so, what a negative EPS means is that the stock had negative net income (net losses) in the trailing twelve months. In other words, adding up the earnings for the past four fiscal quarters results in a negative number.

Using GAAP earnings vs. adjusted earnings to determine the P/E ratio
GAAP is shorthand for Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and a company's GAAP earnings are those reported in compliance with them. A company's GAAP earnings are the amount of profit it generates on an unadjusted basis, meaning without regard for one-off or unusual events such as business unit purchases or tax incentives received. Most financial websites report P/E ratios that use GAAP-compliant earnings numbers.
Non-repeating events such as paying the lease of a new 530,000 square foot fulfillment center, paying for a new customer care center, or ending the period with no long-term debt can cause significant increases or decreases in the amount of profits generated, which is why some investors prefer to calculate a company's P/E ratio using a per-share earnings number adjusted for the financial effects of one-time events. Adjusted earnings numbers tend to produce more accurate P/E ratios.

What's a good P/E ratio for GME? (Now we are talking about of a positive P/E ratio, not GME specifically).
A P/E ratio that is good for one investor may not be enticing to another. P/E ratios can be viewed differently by different investors depending on their investment objectives, which may be more strongly oriented toward value or growth.
Value investors, like myself, straightforwardly prefer low P/E ratios. A stock for which the valuation implied by the market is substantially below its intrinsic value is likely attractive to value investors.
Growth investors are more likely to buy a stock with a high P/E ratio based on the belief that the superior rate of earnings growth, if not the absolute value of the earnings themselves, justifies the high P/E ratio. Tesla’s ratio is currently sitting on an incredible 348 P/E ratio… “cough cough”…
Price to Earnings Ratio from Simply Wall St
How investors can use variations of the P/E ratio
Investors, particularly growth-oriented ones, often use a company's current and past P/E ratios to calculate two other metrics: the forward-looking P/E ratio and the price-to-earnings to growth (PEG) ratio.
The forward P/E ratio is simple to compute. Using the P/E ratio formula -- stock price divided by earnings per share -- the forward P/E ratio substitutes EPS from the trailing 12 months with the EPS projected for the company over the next fiscal year. Projected EPS numbers are provided by financial analysts and sometimes by the companies themselves.
GME's Quarterly Earnings Forecast - Only #2 estimates, ehem...
The future is uncertain, so analyst valuations can -- and will -- change if the company's growth expectations change, or if the risk increases. That's why some experts say stock valuation is part art, part science. Tread carefully
The PEG ratio accounts for the rate at which a company's earnings are growing. It is calculated by dividing the company's P/E ratio (-236x) by its expected rate of earnings growth (Which one?):
GME's PEG ratio - Look at the last quarters trend, since RC came. Bullish!
While most investors use a company's projected rate of growth over the upcoming five years, you can use a projected growth rate for any duration of time. I will be using the period ranging from the red square (Using growth rate projections for shorter periods of time increases the reliability of the resulting PEG ratio).
Continuing with our GME case and following that red-square growth path (I took the average growth from my own calculations, nothing sketchy) and its forecast average annual EPS growth over the next two years of 34% per year. Dividing GME's P/E ratio of -236 into 34 produces a PEG ratio of 6.94. A stock with a PEG ratio below 1.00 is considered as exceptionally valuable due to its impressive projected growth rate.
A value greater than 1, in general, is not as good (overvalued to its growth rate). While a 34% growth might seem too optimistic, the current P/E ratio of -236 detracts from its truthfullness. For example, a company with a P/E ratio of 25 and a growth rate of 20% would have a PEG ratio of 1.25 (25 / 20 = 1.25). A company with a P/E ratio of 40 and a growth rate of 50% would have a PEG ratio of 0.80 (40 / 50 = 0.80). Traditionally, investors would look at the stock with the lower P/E and deem it a bargain. But when compared to its growth rate, it doesn't have the earnings growth to justify its P/E. In this example, the one with the P/E of 40 is the better bargain because it is selling at a discount to its growth rate. So the PEG ratio tells you what you're paying for each unit of earnings growth. Just remember that a P/E of -236 is big, and negative, and it is as it is because its EPS is approaching 0. (Note: I wil make an update as soon as Q3 Earings will be released, but it must be positive). The bigger this number, the bigger the PEG. So in this context we should keep in mind GME’s EPS growth, which is is nice.
  • 3. P/S – Or price-to-sales ratio
The price-to-sales (P/S) ratio is a valuation ratio that compares a company’s stock price to its revenues, which is what we actually did at the very beginning of this post.
This metric is widely used to evaluate public companies that do not have earnings because they are not yet profitable. Companies with consistent earnings such as Walmart are rarely evaluated using the P/S ratio. The above example of Spotify, or even Amazon has a history of inconsistent earnings growth, so despite its massive size, the P/S ratio is a metric investors still prefer to use to evaluate the soon to be the second biggest online retailer (You know who is going to be the first one 😉).
Investors who wish to compare the P/S ratios of different companies should be careful to only compare P/S ratios of companies with similar business models. Across industries, P/S ratios can vary greatly because sales volumes can vary greatly. Companies in industries with low profit margins typically need to generate high volumes of sales.
It is an indicator of the value that financial markets have placed on each dollar of a company’s sales or revenues.
The P/S ratio is calculated by dividing the stock price by the underlying company's sales per share.
GME’s current P/S ratio is at 2.17.
A low ratio could imply the stock is undervalued, while a ratio that is higher-than-average could indicate that the stock is overvalued.
One of the downsides of the P/S ratio is that it doesn’t take into account whether the company makes any earnings or whether it will ever make earnings.
Apple Example:
Taking that a step further, consider Apple's fiscal 2020 revenues of $274.5 billion, with 16.53 billion in outstanding shares as of Sept. 30, 2021, Apple's sales per share are $16.60.
With a stock price of $145, it would give the company a P/S ratio of 8.73.
In comparison, Google trades with a P/S ratio of 6.29 and Microsoft at 10.87, suggesting that Apple and Google may potentially be undervalued or Microsoft might be overvalued.

What Are the Limitations of the Price-to-Sales (P/S) Ratio?
The P/S ratio doesn’t take into account whether the company makes any earnings, like GME, or whether it will ever make earnings. Comparing companies in different industries can prove difficult as well. For example, companies that make video games will have different capabilities when it comes to turning sales into profits when compared to, say, grocery retailers. In addition, P/S ratios do not account for debt loads or the status of a company’s balance sheet.
GME's competitors
  • Nasdaq’s average P/S ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 5.67
  • Best Buy P/S ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 0.5
  • Microsoft P/S ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 14.21
  • Amazon P/S ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 3.86
  • Walmart P/S ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 0.67
  • GME’s ratio at Dec. 1, 2021 is at 2.16
Memba: A low ratio could imply the stock is undervalued, while a ratio that is higher-than-average could indicate that the stock is overvalued.

1. Price/book ratio
Another useful metric for valuing a stock or company is the price-to-book ratio. “Price” is the company's stock price and “book” refers to the company's book value per share. A company's book value is equal to its assets minus its liabilities (asset and liability numbers are found on companies' balance sheets). A company's book value per share is simply equal to the company's book value divided by the number of outstanding shares.
A company's price-to-book ratio is only marginally useful for evaluating companies, like software tech companies, that have asset-light business models. This metric is more relevant for evaluating asset-heavy businesses, such as banks and other financial institutions.
GME’s Price to Book ratio is at 8.15x
Just remember to compare it with the industry and with the market:
Price to Book Ratio - Industry 3.1x and Market 2.4x
  • 5. Discounted Free Cash Flow
Oh, dear Ape, I must warn you, this is true autistic.
The Discounted Cash Flow method (DCF method) is a valuation method that can be used to determine the value of investment assets.
The Discounted Cash Flow method is regarded as the most justifiable method to appraise the economic value of an enterprise. If you want to go deeper in here just read the marvelous book “The Little Book of Valuation” of my idol Aswath Damodaran.
Note that there are several alternatives of the Discounted Cash Flow method: the WACC method, the Adjusted Present Value method or the Cash To Equity method. All these Discounted Cash Flow methods have in common that (a) future cash flows are determined and (b) these future cash flows are -in one way or another- adjusted for the time value of money, i.e. discounted to a predetermined valuation moment.
I can explain the most commonly used WACC method. This WACC method is often seen as the (one and only) Discounted Cash Flow method. According to this method, so-called free cash flows are discounted at a WACC discount rate. In which WACC represents the Weighted Average Cost of Capital.
As said, most of these non-Discounted Cash Flow methods are based on historical performance. And this is more or less irrelevant. A buyer of a company does not buy a financial history. He buys the future financial performance. More correctly formulated: the future cash flows.
One might think (and hope) that historical performance is normative for the future financial performance. If so, alternative valuation methods (such as the earnings based method that I have explained above) have some significance. But the future is not entirely certain. And more often: different then the past. The value as an outcome of the Discounted Cash Flow method however is based on future cash flows. That is therefore the most justifiable approach: a buyer (or interested party) buys future cash flows with his capital expenditure for the investments in assets or stock.
The value of the company is therefore a derivative of those future cash flows. With the so-called WACC method, we establish the so-called free cash flows. Or, sometimes denoted as the cash to the firm. These are the cash flows that become available for all providers of capital. Not only the buyer (or shareholder) of the shares has invested money (as equity) in the company. But often also interest based capital providers, such as banks, leasing companies, and so on.
We must therefore compare these free cash flows FCF with the total cost of invested capital. This is how we arrive at the total cost of capital: the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC). So, two aspects therefore play a dominant role in the WACC method. These are (a) the future free cash flows FCF which are generated by the enterprise and (b) the Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC.
As of (2021-11-30), GameStop's weighted average cost of capital is -14.39%. GameStop's ROIC % is -3.95% (calculated using TTM income statement data). GameStop generates higher returns on investment than it costs the company to raise the capital needed for that investment. It is earning excess returns. Remember: a firm that expects to continue generating positive excess returns on new investments in the future will see its value increase as growth increases.
GME’s Discounted Cash Flow (DCF):
1,102.35$/Share - The true stonk is undervalued according with the Discounted Free Cash Flow
Note: if you don’t manually change future earnings to be positive, this could indicate that the company should be valued at -4.65$/share, which, obviously, can’t be possible. But this is due the negative Cost of Equity.
I will put the screenshots of the way of calculating it, but be very vigilant, I did it on a fly (Note: Negative Cost of Equity may undermine the actual value and, again, should be put manually):

Operating Data
Balance Sheet Data
GME's WACC -7,10 whereas GuruFocus says -14,39%... I will try to explain it in another post
Build Up Free Cash
Termina Value sitting at 67 BN and Intrinsic Value per share indicating that GME will be valuing $1.000/Share at the end of 2026
If anyone is really interested on how this data works, just click in here. As per request, I can also develop it further to reflect its actual value following Aswath’s Discounted Cash Flow Method. This was done in one shot.
Wrapping up the First Step – Valuation of GME:
  1. Earnings Per Share (EPS): If the current EPS uptrend continues, we will most likely see GME EPS to be above 1.06$ in Q4 and further and further. I can definitely see some growth since RC came to the Board
  2. P/E ratio: -236x compared to a 9.7x of the industry and 17.2x the Market average indicates that it is and will be overvalued. But, this is because GME should not be located in a matured industry and it should be valued as a growing e-commerce-tech one
  3. P/S ratio: GME’s ratio is at 2.16 whereas Market’s average P/S ratio is at 5.67 and its direct competitors are at 0.5 (Best Buy) and 3.86 (Amazon). And, again, this is because GME should not be located in a matured industry with little growth, and it should be valued as a growing e-commerce-tech one
  4. Price/book ratio: GME is currently sitting on a 8.2x Price to Book ratio whereas the Industry is sitting on a 3.1x, indicating that GME is overvalued
  5. Discounted Free Cash Flow: Its current Cost of Equity may undermine the DFCF Method of valuation. In any case, it says that GME should be valued at more than a thousand dollar per share. 1,102 $/Share.
Remember Warren Buffett's two rules for investing are "don't lose money", and "don't forget rule number-one". Arguably, studying the financial health of a business is where you should begin research.

Ok, so I must finish this post in here due to its characters limit and maximum images.
See you in Step Two.

One of our main priorities is making our token safe, fair and completely transparent for all investors. Thats why we have renounced ownership of the Shiba Max contract on launch ensuring no individual or entity has control of Shiba Max, ensuring that it is decentralized and secure for all investors.
Our Tokenomics are as follows:
Auto-Liquidity Generation: 7% of all Shiba Max transactions will be contributed to building Liquidity ensuring the growth, stability, and sustainability of the token. This feature ensures that the price of the token is backed by a constantly growing liquidity pool. Multiple secure liquidity pools will be added as we grow, and our token is listed on centralized exchanges such as Bilaxy and Hotbit. The rate of contributions will only increase as our community grows and trading volume increases providing stability and security to our investors.
Decentralization: Contract Ownership was renounced at launch as a result of this action no individual or entity has ownership of the contract, making Shiba Max secure and fair for our community and truly decentralized. 100% of Liquidity was locked on launch (Please refer to our FAQ section for link) to ensure security and peace of mind for our investors.Shiba Max was tested extensively using the testnet prior to launch to ensure absolute security and accuracy of function, it was designed to be scalable, self-sustaining, and to scale seamlessly and frictionlessly on a fully autonomous and rapidly growing DeFi ecosystem.
Shiba Maximum Rewards: All holders will have their Shiba Max balance grow through RFI Rewards at intervals as the Shiba Max Army grows. This function will allow the Army to effectively earn interest rewards which will increase as our community grows. Our mission is to ensure that the Shiba Max Army is rewarded as our domination of the Crypto Market continues on.
The Shiba Max NFT Marketplace and its offerings is brimming on the horizon. We will be working garner a roster of the best Digital artists, Influencers, Celebrities, and Athletes to have an all-star lineup of NFT releases at launch. The Dynamic NFT releases would also be paired with Physical Merchandise to add further value to our Marketplace offerings. Airdrops will also be going out to our top shillers and holders.

2021.12.02 19:51 hlilac Their voices…drunk or Botox or what??

Hi, I noticed in the show that some of the cast often speak in a strange, sort of slurred or strained way. Chrishell, Davina, and ESPECIALLY Mary best exemplify this to me.
Do you know what I’m talking about? If so, do you think it’s from drinking a lot on camera or maybe some result of Botox or filler? I imagine prescription meds or other drugs could also produce the same effect.
