GameStop shot 11% higher. A hedge fund took a sizable stake in the struggling video game retailer, and it was confirmed that the deal signed earlier this month with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) includes royalties from digital Xbox downloads.

Moody’s rating action reflects a base expected loss of 71.3% of the current pooled balance, compared to 37.6% at Moody’s last review. For provisional ratings, this announcement provides certain regulatory disclosures in relation to the provisional rating assigned, and in relation to a definitive rating that may be assigned subsequent to the final issuance of the debt, in each case where the transaction structure and terms have not changed prior to the assignment of the definitive rating in a manner that would have affected the rating.

The deal GameStop (NYSE: GME) negotiated with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) last week is apparently better than many people thought. While shares of the video game retailer got a big boost from the original announcement, which focused heavily on GameStop using the software giant’s back-end solutions to better meet customer needs in the digital gaming era, largely unnoticed was a sentence saying both companies will “benefit from the customer acquisition and lifetime revenue value of each gamer brought into the Xbox ecosystem.” According to website Ars Technica, the private equity firm spoke with GameStop directly, which confirmed the retailer “will receive a portion of the downstream revenue from any device we will bring into the Xbox ecosystem.”

During Q2, GameStop (NYSE: GME) brought in sales totaling $942.00 million. However, earnings decreased 10.28%, resulting in a loss of $96.90 million. In Q1, GameStop brought in $1.02 billion in sales but lost $108.00 million in earnings.Why ROCE Is Significant Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in GameStop's Return on Capital Employed, a measure of yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital employed by a business. Generally, a higher ROCE suggests successful growth of a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share in the future. In Q2, GameStop posted an ROCE of -0.28%.It is important to keep in mind ROCE evaluates past performance and is not used as a predictive tool. It is a good measure of a company's recent performance, but several factors could affect earnings and sales in the near future.View more earnings on GMEReturn on Capital Employed is an important measurement of efficiency and a useful tool when comparing companies that operate in the same industry. A relatively high ROCE indicates a company may be generating profits that can be reinvested into more capital, leading to higher returns and growing EPS for shareholders.In GameStop's case, the ROCE ratio shows the amount of assets may not be helping the company achieve higher returns. Investors may take this into account before making any long-term financial decisions.Q2 Earnings Recap GameStop reported Q2 earnings per share at $-1.4/share, which did not meet analyst predictions of $-1.13/share.See more from Benzinga * Options Trades For This Crazy Market: Get Benzinga Options to Follow High-Conviction Trade Ideas * 12 Consumer Cyclical Stocks Moving In Thursday's Intraday Session * 12 Consumer Cyclical Stocks Moving In Tuesday's After-Market Session(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
