What goes down stairs, alone or in pairs, rolls over your neighbor's dog? No, not log. It's the unstoppable gaming pawn shop: GameStop. The company has been so successful that it will enter the S&P 500, an index of 500 Large-Cap public companies, and will replace newspaper publisher Dow Jones. How poetic is that? If you need the fancy explanation
of S&P 500, we're not going to do it. We'll go with a simple one: This means GameStop is a big money making company -- but most of you already knew that
As previously rumored
, GameStop is looking to soften its insalubrious image. In that vein, the company announced it donated 200 shopping spree wishes to mega-charity Make-A-Wish foundation. You can also visit the Make-A-Wish section
on GameStop.com and donate between $5 and $100. We totally want to ask if the Make-A-Wish kids will have 75% of their wish's value taken away when they trade it in at GameStop, but that would just be in poor taste.
