    Investors only care about profit.
    Nintendo only care about profit (and low bill-of-materials).
    End-users only care about fun games and low prices.


    Selfish people, the lot of you!
    Oh wait, that includes me.

    "Investors keep hoping such disastrous quarterly results will eventually get management to see that Nintendo’s future is more in mobile than console."

    This is how I read it.

    "Investors keep hoping that Nintendo will do something about their disastrous results & mobile looks like it would make more money."

    The investors don't care how Nintendo make their money, if they make it. It's just clearly obvious to everyone outside of Nintendo that you can't compete with the install base of smart phones, no matter what gimmicks you come up with. The 3DS hasn't made everyone demand 3D screens for gaming for instance.

    If Nintendo goes mobile they will reap crazy profits for the next 5 years or so. Investors will get huge returns on their investment. Of course, after those 5 years, when Mario is associated with autorunners and no longer AAA titles, nobody will give a crap about Mario anymore. How many of your friends still play the "extremely successful" Farmville? Temple Run? Angry Birds? But by that point all the current investors will have cashed out. Sure, there are probably 7 investors or something that want to stick with Nintendo for the long haul, but the overwhelming majority want quick profits. That's just how the stock market works. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    The good news is the employees of Nintendo do not want 5 years of glory and then nothing. They want job security. So as long as the CEO of Nintendo values his job and his co-workers, Nintendo will release quality console games.

    You should try the three mobile entries of Rayman. They are auto platformer rather than auto runners.
    But yes, going into full mobile will be the biggest mistake Nintendo will not make.
    When did Nintendo go public anyway?

    If your income can keep up with growth then it is better to stay private. There are many companies ruined by investors. And also get rid of any partner that wish to go public.

    Probably the same dumbasses who thought Nintendo was behind pokemon go. Either way, investors aren't always the smartest people. They care about profit above all, and its in contrast to what Nintendo wants. Nintendo will do what it wants, and if investors don't like it, they can shove off. I personally think the investors are seeing only the short term profit of franchises like angry birds, but now a days who really plays that game anymore? Nintendo is a company that is going to stick around not fizzle out. In there minds (Nintendo) they have hit the sweetspot with the switch. Create a console which they make, which satisfies both mobile and console gamers. What more could gamers want? Oh that's right Nintendo, made the switch for gamers, not bloody investors.

    Maybe their income was not enough to keep up with growth? I never heard any successful private big companies after all.

    Huawei. The founder has over 95% of the stock but as most private companies the profit is shared with employees. There should be more than one or two private billion dollar corporation in the states and in europe.

    So? They're allowed to feel however they want. They aren't the ones running Nintendo.

    Consumers expect mobile games to be cheap and cheerful. Even quality mobile titles rarely cost more than a few quid, so in order to compete in that market Nintendo would have to massively drop the price of their title. That will mean one of two things: reduced profit for Nintendo, or reduced quality in the software. Neither of those things are good for Nintendo or their fans.

    It's still insulting. You'd be a little annoyed if someone in Japan called you up and said you are an ignorant slob because you don't eat rice with every meal.

    One more WiiU and Nintendo will be forced to exit the console hardware market.

    Not surprising, considering most of NIntendo's investors probably don't even understand video games.
    Like that one dude that got mad at an investor's meeting back in 2014.
    (Secretly I hope that Iwata-san told him to "please understand and gtfo" :D)
