GameStop (GME) has been one of the most fascinating stories in the stock world since the beginning of the year. Most recently, we saw GME spike, hitting over $300 per share. Now GameStop is on its way down, as the stock’s price rapidly dropped today, getting halted several times in the process.

GameStop’s (GME) stock had been on a constant climb over the last several days, getting another surge after the hiring of Ryan Cohen to lead the company’s e-commerce shift. However, on March 10, GME took a significant dive. In approximately half an hour, GameStop’s (GME) value dropped from $344.49 to $198, coming down from some of its highest numbers in recent history.
