That earnings report saw the company bring in adjusted net losses per share of 76 cents on revenue of $1.18 billion. For comparison, Wall Street was looking for adjusted losses per share of 66 cents on revenue of $1.12 billion. It’s also worth noting that adjusted losses per share were $1.42 with revenue of $942 million.

Unfortunately for holders of GME stock, its adjusted per-share losses couldn’t match estimates. That has the company’s shares falling despite its revenue coming in higher than analysts’ estimates.

So how exactly is this making investors in GME stock feel today? Let’s take to social media to get their takes on the recent earnings report.
