On CAPS, 15% of the 734 All-Star members who have rated GameStop believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star boxxer55, succinctly summed up the GameStop bear case for our community:

More gaming is moving to pads and phones. The best days of gaming systems and expensive games for consoles are now behind us. There will still be spots of positive movement, especially if new ways to play are brought to market. But the long-term outlook is negative and Game Stop is likely to be an early victim.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to protect your portfolio from any undue risk. Luckily, we've found a growth play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit From the NEW Technology Revolution."
