Analysts vented frustration Wednesday morning after GameStop executives declined to answer questions about one of the most volatile businesses so far this year.

Often a sanitized, dry group, Wall Street's analysts didn't hold back from voicing their frustration with GameStop CEO George Sherman and the video game retailer's decision to skirt a Q&A session on Tuesday that usually occurs at the end of an earnings call.

"While everyone was expecting big news about some massive digital transformation in the mold of the new tech-oriented board members, nothing was said," wrote Joseph Feldman of Telsey Advisory Group.

The stock was last seen down more than 16% Wednesday morning.
