Gamestop Falls On Q4 Update; Lazard Says Buyhttp://goo.gl/SU62nGamestop (GME) this morning reported holiday sales rose 5.4% from a year earlier to $3.02 billion, and that its comp-store sales in the period rose 3.4%.The company said it exceeded its own plan for the holidays. And the company reiterated its Q4 and full-year forecast. (Gamestop is on a January-ending Q4.)...Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian this morning writes that the sell-off could just be profit taking following a 13% rise in the stock. He notes that the 1.7% rise in the used games category reflects the seasonality of fewer used titles being bought during gift-giving season. Sebastian sees some weakness in Europe, however, but guesses that used sales post-holidays are outperforming expectations.Sebastian thinks Gamestop should benefit from Microsoft’s (MSFT) sales of 8 million “Kinect” game controllers, announced at the Microsoft keynote at CES last night.
