Baird analyst, Colin Sebastian, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of GameStop (NYSE: GME) ahead of earnings on August 25. He also tweaked estimates to account for slightly lower new hardware and software sales in Q2/Q3 largely offset by with higher Q4 estimates. Q2 is seasonally soft but there should be solid video game category sales in the months ahead with a healthy software slate and new hardware/VR SKUs.

No change to the price target of $42.00.
