Image source: Getty Images I think it’s fair to say the GME (NYSE: GME) share price has been on a pretty wild ride over the past three months. The stock started the year changing hands at a price of around $17 per share. However, by the end of January, the stock’s closing price had reached more than $347. Unfortunately, these profits quickly evaporated and it fell to a low of around $40 in the middle of February. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…But, since then, it’s steadily recovered. At the time of writing, the GME share price is changing hands at just over $122. Does this mean we’ve seen the bottom for the stock, or could there be further declines to come?The GME share price Much of the stock’s performance over the past three months has been unrelated to its fundamentals. By that, I mean the share price action has been driven by investor buying and selling rather than any improvement or deterioration in the company’s underlying business operations. Here at the Motley Fool, we’re all long-term fundamental investors, which means we focus on underlying business fundamentals rather than trying to guess short-term share price movements. With that in mind, I think the best way to determine whether or not the GME share price has reached a bottom is to look at the firm’s underlying profitability. Here, there’s a significant discrepancy between the recent share price performance. For the company’s fiscal third quarter, it reported a total loss of $19m. That was a substantial improvement of around 78% on the same period a year ago.However, revenues declined by around 30% year-on-year. For the company’s fiscal 2021 financial year, Wall Street analysts forecast a total loss of $140m. Still, they expect losses to fall for 2022, projecting a total loss of $5m for that fiscal period. These are just projections at this stage so there’s no guarantee the company will hit these targets. It could outperform or underperform Wall Street expectations. If it does outperform expectations, things could change quickly for the firm. If it returns to profit, investor sentiment may improve. This isn’t impossible. In the past, the firm has benefitted from new blockbuster game and game console releases. A slate of new releases may lead to a surge in demand for its goods. That would push up sales, plus GME’s profit margins and could lead to a profit. Challenging outlook This makes it incredibly challenging to determine whether or not the GME share price is worth buying at current levels. Not only is the company’s future highly unpredictable, but the group’s losses make it difficult for me to place a value on the stock. As such, it isn’t very easy for me to tell if GME has reached a bottom or not. As I’ve said, the share price seems to be driven by short-term investor sentiment rather than underlying fundamentals. Revenues are falling, and the company is bleeding money. But, for some reason, the market still thinks the business is worth nearly $9bn. That doesn’t make much sense to me. Therefore, I wouldn’t buy the GME share price for my portfolio today. With so much uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the stock, I think there are better opportunities out now on the market, with brighter futures.

The Synairgen (LSE: SNG) share price has been on a rollercoaster ride this year. Year-to-date, the stock is up 5.5%. However, these numbers don’t tell the whole story.In May, shares in the biotechnology company slumped by more than a third, falling from around 148p to a low of 98p.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…After reaching this low, the stock quickly rallied, charging higher over the following weeks to top out at 176p at the beginning of June. Despite this volatility, shares in the company are still up nearly 400% over the past 12 months. Since the beginning of June, the Synairgen share price has moved sideways. So the question is, what’s next for the stock? Company outlookIt’s impossible to predict the short-term movements of stocks. Still, in the long-term, equity prices should track underlying business performance. Therefore, if the firm’s operating performance improves, the Synairgen share price should follow suit. Currently, the firm’s future depends on the success of its inhaled formulation of interferon beta, which is being trialled as a potential treatment for coronavirus. The company’s treatment, SNG001, has shown to be effective in initial studies, but there’s still a way to go before full commercialisation. Towards the end of May, the company informed the market that trials of the SNG001 treatment had shown it to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 variants. Commenting on the trial results, Professor Sir Stephen Holgate, the founder of Synairgen, said the studies confirmed interferon’s impact on viruses, which is a positive development for the treatment and only adds to its appeal for healthcare professionals. SNG001 is currently undergoing testing in a phase III trial on hospitalised patients. The company expects to report the results of the trial in the second half of 2021. In the meantime, the Synairgen share price is likely to remain volatile.While the company has reported positive trial results from its treatment up to this point, SNG001 will only make it to market if it passes the last hurdle with flying colours. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee it will.Synairgen share price: risky investment If the treatment doesn’t make it through the final testing stage, Synairgen could lose its flagship product. This would be a massive blow for the business and would undoubtedly negatively impact the stock. On the other hand, if the treatment does make it through the phase III trials, the sky’s the limit for the company. Testing of SNG001 has so far shown it to be effective against all types of respiratory viruses. As such, the potential market for this new treatment could be colossal. Overall, the recent trading activity in the Synairgen share price seems to reflect the market’s uncertain views. It seems some investors don’t believe in the company’s treatment. However, based on the positive test results so far, I think SNG001 could have potential. With that being the case, I’m willing to change my previously negative opinion of the stock.As the firm pushes forward, I’d buy a small speculative position for my portfolio.
