GameStop (NYSE:GME) reports earnings results next week, and with the stock up more than 100% so far this year, the stakes are pretty high.
In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos outlines three things for investors to watch for in the report. First, look for GameStop to return to sales growth for the first time in nine quarters. Profits should also bounce higher, buoyed by the market-share battle in the toys-to-life gaming category between Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) and Disney (NYSE:DIS). And finally, investors should pay close attention to GameStop's outlook for the fourth quarter, which includes the critical holiday season and expectations around the next-gen console transition.
