A valuation that low is usually ominous, suggesting investors believe GameStop’s earnings will rapidly decline in the coming years.

There’s reason to be nervous. GameStop is facing the daunting prospect of remaining a brick-and-mortar retailer of physical video games, in an age in which traffic is migrating online and more games are being released in downloadable formats. There isn’t really a great solution to the problem and the company announced in mid-June that it is “in exploratory discussions with third parties regarding a potential transaction.” Leading up to that announcement, But GameStop’s strategy seems to have been to prudently decrease its store footprint, while also diversifying into non-video game products.

In early June, GameStop unveiled its newest attempt at diversification, announcing it would begin selling comic books in a 40-store trial.

The big banks are five for five after Morgan Stanley beat Wall Street&a;rsquo;s expectations Wednesday. The Q1 reporting season is off to a strong start as stocks try to extend gains and continue the positive momentum generated earlier this week. Volatility continues to sag.

&a;nbsp;

&l;span&g;Morgan Stanley&l;/span&g; got the new day off with a bang, reporting record revenue and net income. Earnings of $1.45 a share beat analysts&a;rsquo; consensus expectations of $1.28, while revenue of $11.1 billion came in ahead of the consensus $10.4 billion. Overall, &l;span&g;Morgan Stanley&l;/span&g; did very well. Their investment banking did well; their trading did well and so did their wealth management business.

&a;nbsp;

Importantly, &l;span&g;Morgan Stanley&l;/span&g; executives said they see one of the biggest risks going forward as geopolitical. That bodes well, because it means that the things that are more fundamentally important, like financial results going forward, aren&a;rsquo;t necessarily an issue. Geopolitics are out of companies&a;rsquo; control, and always could be a factor no matter how the economy performs.

    For the third quarter, the company reported cash and equivalents of $470.4 million, while net income came in at $50 million (includes a gain of $78.7 million from the Immunomedics’ warrant). Without the one-time gain, its loss of $28.7 million would still be an improvement over net loss of $31.8 million for the same quarter last year. For the fourth quarter, the company is guiding for ADCETRIS sales in the range of $82 million to $84 million (total revenue of $128 million to $130 million). In addition to the growing opportunity for ADCETRIS (peak sales in excess of $1 billion) and the intriguing prospects of tucatinib, the company has a promising pipeline of ADC candidates and immuno-oncology assets. Partnered programs with the likes of AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), Astellas (OTCPK:ALPMY), Genmab (OTCPK:GMXAY), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), Genentech and many more also lend additional credibility to the story.
