Game Trader: Video Game and Tech Stock Chart Analysis - June 2018

Asif is back with a look at the technicals of the stocks in our Game Trader coverage universe.


This Game Trader video takes a look at the stock charts for all of the companies in our coverage universe. This content differs from our Game Trader: Video Game and Tech Stock Ratings as I do not take any financial or fundamental reasoning into how I interpret share price movements. The highlights in this video include a quarterly buy signal in AMD and a potential buy signal in GameStop's beaten down shares. I have also initiated coverage on Tencent. Please take a look.

For more videos, including gameplay and interviews, visit the Shacknews and YouTube channels.

Full Disclosure:

At the time of this article, Asif A. Khan, his family members, and his company Virtue LLC had the following positions:

Long Apple via AAPL shares and options

Long GameStop via GME shares 

Long Nintendo via NTDOY shares

      I'll have to watch this later to see how Gamestop is a buy. Unless they consider splitting their store brands into at least two distinct tiers, I don't see how they are going to take advantage of Toys R Us closings to gain market share.

      Nintendo dropped 5% after news of their QoL project being put on hold and Panasonic dropping out back in March.

          Assuming it's still down that much or more then yeah, I would. The QoL stuff was all speculative (and, honestly, announced a little prematurely on Nintendo's part) and shouldn't really be an issue to their long term health or any upcoming bottom lines. I think the only real issue is it was a non-gaming avenue for revenue that's now closed, but it's not like it was ever making them money in the first place.

          As I said in the video, there is no technical reason to buy the stock. I do think the lower it goes, the more interesting it gets going into E3. I am fully invested in the position and am staying long.
