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, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the positive front, VisionChina Media ( VISN), up 28.4%, ChinaNet Online Holdings ( CNET), up 15.6%, WidePoint Corporation ( WYY), up 11.5% and Seanergy Maritime Holdings ( SHIP), up 11.1% , were all gainers within the services sector with Tyco International ( TYC) being today's featured services sector leader.
