Varchild2008 (84.35)

Varchild doesn't sell his ATVI shares afterall. . .



March 03, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: ATVI

After much baby crying and sulking and moaning..... and grumbling.....over the ongoing "General Hospital" drama at ATVI with lead villain star being "Simon Cowell."   err I mean.. "Bobby Kotick."

I decided it made no sense to sell ATVI shares...... 

What made me change my mind?

The continued realization that the "baby crying and sulking and moaning..... and grumbling" that is ever constant going on at:    forums.....

I mean.. any mention of "Bobby Kotick" or "Activision" immediately generates a bunch of "I HATE YOU ACTIVISION!!!"  and "Bobby Kotick is ruining the fun in Video Gaming..."

Constant attacks and assaults against Activision and Bobby Kotick in the gamespot forums seem endless.... never ending  "baby crying and sulking and moaning..... and grumbling."

Personally.... I woke up today telling myself to GROW UP cause Businesses aren't run like CEDAR POINT where you pay 1 small fee and you can get on any ride and ride it as many times as you want and go "Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" until the park closes...

Running a Business is extremely tough and there is little room for error....

So I give ACTIVISION's  C.E.O.  the benefit of the doubt here that he knows what he's doing inspite of the miserable Music Genre  Bad Record on his Legacy.   You can't ignore the obvious GOOD Record of success just cause 2009 generated a hefty Q4 loss due to poor performances with the Music Genre and with "TONY HAWK's RIDE."

In short.....

The comments in the forums regarding:  "Singularity.....Blur.....Transformers....." all seem very positive and very focused on the actual VIDEO GAME instead of written obsessively like "OMG!! OMG!!!! I dont' CARE how good the game is... Activision is the publsher."

Video Gaming is about Gaming..... not about whining... sulking... moaning....over how much you do not like so and so and so publishing company... or so and so C.E.O.

So as investors... we have to realize that there is the "PEANUT GALLERY" and then there is the actual "REALITY" and many times what you read in forums "PEANUT GALLERY" stuff is meaningless and misleading big time when it comes to the actual "REALITY" of how video gamers are perceiving the value of games being sold by Activision this year.

So.. some Video Gamers may indeed pull their WOW accounts in whiny...moany...sulky....knee jerk fashion thinking they are "sticking it to the man" but in the end video gamers aren't really that political as they appear at .

I have lost patience too, I guess it was too good to be true afterall, held it for over a year as core stock in my portfolio while the market rallied like hell and didn't make a dime...
