Pretty cool. Read more about the rise in stocks in the source.
"The world's largest video-game console maker." Really makes me happy.
On a side note, you should head over to DeadlyFoez' help thread; he needs all the support he can get.
I don't really feel stock market movement is news. Stocks go up and stocks go down all the time.
Did somebody call for Mr. Pessimism? Very well!
A) As Nathan Drake said, stocks fluctuate pretty wildly - if we posted every time a company's stocks went up or down, well... let's just say we'd have an overstock of those threads very, very quickly.
B) High stocks don't reflect the company's financial state, just the investors' confidence. It's nice that the investors are a little more enthused than they were before, but that doesn't really mean much else. Besides, investors are very fickle, flighty creatures - confidence can be won and lost in seconds.
C) Just because it's a relative high doesn't mean it's actually high on its own.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go steal Christmas.
Here we go. Even when there is positive news about Nintendo, someone has to go out their way to state otherwise.
A) But you clearly see I don't post just any rise or fall of stocks, so why even state this?
B) They have to feel confidence over something, reasonable reasons stated.
C) What? Either way, it's about at it's highest as 2011.
Whatever floats your boat!
Not that it really bothers me, but if this thread was reported the exact opposite, I feel it would at least stayed in USN.
I highly doubt it would've stayed, seeing how sales/stocks aren't generally considered newsworthy. So uhh...I beg you don't cry?
This Nintendo Victimization complex is getting really old :/
It's like everyone's said, stock has nothing to do with the financial state in the company. It's literally all the people in the world looking at Nintendo saying,"HEY,IT LOOKS LIKE THINGS MIGHT BE PICKING UP A BIT, BETTER INVEST MORE MONEY THEN SELL IT AGAIN BEFORE PROFITS TAKE A NOSE DIVE."
Sure it's cool that they've finally risen, but they could literally fall back down again in a day just depending on how people's faith is invested in the company.
Because the rising/falling of stocks are not news here, period - this is no exception. I mean, we don't consider systems sales numbers to be news, so why should stock prices be treated differently?
I don't think you actually read what I said here - or if you did, you're responding to something else entirely.
Relative (#2 is the one you want)
For one example, let's use elevation. Sea level is relatively higher than rock bottom - but that doesn't mean sea level itself is high. The same with stocks; the point was that a relatively high stock price ("Highest since July 2011") isn't necessarily high on its own. (Wasn't saying it's low, but that titles like this can be misleading.)
If people were so anti-Nintendo, you'd think that people would've been posting, say, Sony's stock skyrocket after E3. Or all of Nintendo's stock slips. Except that hasn't happened at all (At most, it gets brought up in a tangentially related thread. At most.).
Plus, come on, we're on a pretty Nintendo-friendly site - it's even called GBAtemp. The persecution complex is a bit ridiculous here.
GBAtemp: My first economics lesson.
Well, to be fair, it's always good to hear that a business you like is doing well financially. Besides, money they've accumulated from the early 1800's will only last so long. Better make some money before all of that runs out.
The thread got moved because threads about sales numbers, or anything of that nature are not allowed in usn
They always brings pointless fanboy bickering
Just wait until the release of Pokemon Gen 6, I bet stocks will soar, due to hardware and game sales, since people will need a 3DS to play the new Pokemon game, if they don't already have one.
Has anyone done a study on Nintendo investor confidence just before, and during, a Pokemon release? We've nearly 2 decades of data now...
Honestly the 3DS sells well enough already, a new Pokemon will surely help it sell more but the 3DS isn't much of an issue with Nintendo. It's their Wii U tanking hard.
Thread should've been titled "Nintendo's stocks rise, along with fanboys' boners."
In all seriousness, a little good news, I guess.
Was just announced the Wii U reached 1 millions sales in Japan before both the PS3 and Vita combined. The PS3 was launched before the worldwide economy crisis in 2008. Guess I'll take that news with a grain of salt too.
Uh oh....damn the transitory nature of subtle shifts in stocks
Quick, someone create a thread in the USN and claim Nintendo stocks are falling!
Oh wait, that isn't news.
