5. GameStop ( GME) is one of the companies pushing the Services sector higher today. As of noon trading, GameStop is up $1.12 (2.5%) to $46.33 on average volume. Thus far, 1.1 million shares of GameStop exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.6 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $45.09-$46.41 after having opened the day at $45.09 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $45.21.

GameStop Corp. operates as a video game retailer. GameStop has a market cap of $5.4 billion and is part of the retail industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.7, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 82.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 12 analysts that rate GameStop a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates GameStop as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, reasonable valuation levels and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins. Get the full GameStop Ratings Report now.
