Explaining the GameStop phenomenon for small investors


GameStop is an American video game, consumer electronics, and gaming merchandise retailer. The company is headquartered in Grapevine, Texas, United States, a suburb of Dallas, and operates 5,509 retail stores throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe as of February 1, 2020.

However, certain companies do profit from the stock price going up.

GameStop is a retail chain with about 5,000 locations across North America.
