GameStop Corp., the video-game chain that said this week its CEO had surgery for brain cancer, surged the most in a year after reporting profit that beat estimates as consumers bought new players and software.
Net income more than doubled to $24.6 million, or 22 cents a share, from a year arlier, GameStopsaid in a statement yesterday. Analysts on average predicted 18 cents, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
