11:44 EDTWMTGameStop weakness on Wal-Mart news a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray believes the impact of Wal-Mart (WMT) on GameStop's (GME) used business will be immaterial and views today's pullback as a buying opportunity. Piper notes that the entrance of Wal-Mart into any market should not be taken lightly, but other retailers have tried and failed before to enter the used game business and that Wal-Mart's entry actually refutes the bear thesis on GameStop that the used game business is not attractive. The firm maintains its Overweight rating and $53 price target on GameStop.
