The world’s largest video game retailer. They’ve done a lot of things well. To combat online gaming, they have a great trade program. If someone is tired of a game, they can take the video to this company, and get credit for the new hot game they want, and that ability is not available online. The challenge is that they are going through a transition of being known as a video game retailer to being a sort of entertainment media outlet, and are doing that in a variety of ways, including getting into selling mobile phones. Expects this will trade at a discount because the market is worried about what it will look like 5 years from now. The balance sheet looks pretty good and pays a juicy dividend of 8%.

The challenge for this company is more secular rather than cyclical. They specialize in trading used video games. With digital downloads and digital formats, there is less and less of that going on, which is one reason the stock has not done well. Their balance sheet in the meantime has gone from rich in cash to just OK. Going forward, the prospects are somewhat uncertain.

(A Top Pick Jan 16/15. Up 10.83%.) Pulled back about 15% recently because a firm downgraded them. He feels that is meaningless and there is still a lot of upside. They pay a great dividend and have very little debt.

A retailer of games and game devices, etc. He has been a big proponent of consumer discretionary stocks, especially companies that don’t require a huge outlay. As a retailer, this company is in a good space, because there continues to be lots of new titles coming out and lots of refreshes of existing titles. He would prefer to own online retail for video. This stock has just made a new high. He would have no problem owning the stock. (See Top Picks.)

(A Top Pick Jan 16/15. Up 3%.) This is a play on the consumer. It gives you a broader range including Xbox, PlayStation and all of their games. This is an area where he is seeing dollars being channelled to. This company has done a few things in the last year which are compelling. They have grown their mobile space and are bringing the consumer in with their secondary market.

The stock ran up considerably. In 2013 it was up 100% and had moved up in anticipation of the new Sony and Xbox consoles coming out. It ran up too much and spent last year playing catch-up when the stock was down about 30%. Although it declined in 2014, the fundamentals of the company actually improved. They diversified their income stream from solely being dependent on the gaming market and are now moving into the mobile market. They acquired 46 outlets of Simply Mac, which sells Apple products. They have Cricket and Spring Mobile, which are pre-paid and post-paid AT&T phones and services. Very clean balance sheet with very little debt, about $4 million. Dividend yield of 3.72%.
