How close are we to downloadable games

September 05, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: GME

I am not to familiar with all the technology that goes into sharing files and downloading, but i can't help but wonder how close we are to being able to download new releases directly to the consule. currently we can download older and smaller games or DLC, im sure we can download games now but not in a reasonable amount of time. This feature has really taken off recently where companies have made tons off their DLC, and when we get to the ability to download new releases in let say under an hour, what will happen to Gamestop? this feature doesnt hurt all business though, who will be the first to produce this new fast way of downloading games, and what will this do to the video game makers margins? they no longer will sell games to a discount to the retail stores and i doubt they will sell them at a discount to us, so they would have nowhere else to go but up. If anyone has any more info about this i would love to hear it, or your thoughts would be great thanks.  [more]



To PEG or not to PEG

           When asked what ratio or statistic is best when figuring out a company’s worth, most investors will say PEG (Price/Earnings/Growth). This is a great ratio because it compares the company’s price to itself. Many people get tired of looking up a companies PE then compare it to other companies PE that they compete with or the average PE of the market, to find the most undervalued company, and really this just assumes all companies are equal and grow at the same rate, which we all know is not true. So we have to look further than the PE to find why they might be growing at a discount, do they have slow growth? Is there to much debt, etc. etc. To make this easier someone came up with the PEG ratio which is great except one thing, it only works if a company is growing at a consistent rate, a company who grew really fast in the past may not have the same growing potential in the future and that would give us a misguided number.   [more]
