+ Watch NTDOY
on My Watchlist
What a terrible industry. I used to work in video games. The business model is awful, and futile, propped up on big gambles that don't always win. Nintendo is doing worse than most. Their products just aren't competing with Sony and Microsoft and Apple, and with new, high-power consoles coming, I don't think Nintendo will pull much good out in the years to come. They'd do better to abandon the console market and focus on designing games around their established IP (Mario, Zelda, etc.)
Nintendo has legendary brands in gaming, but over multiple console cycles they have failed to keep up with Sony and Microsoft.
Wii U sales will drag the stock down
WII U just launching, and my bet is that it is going to bring Nintendo out of its losses.
Good reviews of new nintendo WiiU.
I went to Game Stop and they said that they was sold out on there pre-orders on the wii U. It will take some time before the stock will produce, because production is low. This is a stock that you will have to gibe it time to grow. The xbox and the sony system is not going to come out with a system for a long time. Wii in more for familys, so it will be market of its own. Get it before you look back and said you wish you would have bought it.
spec on new wii
With the Wii U releasing sometime late 2012 or early 2013 (im not sure) the stock will skyrocket and everyone will wish they bought this stocks now!
With the relative failure of the 3ds and the dying wii brand, likely to see further damage with a meek wii u launch I believe Nintendo will be forced restructure itself as a software company similar to the transition of sega
The new console and handheld devices should be very successful, and return Nintendo to prominence.
The stock price should rise ahead of the next product cycle which is on the horizon with Wii U. A strong balance sheet, good brand, and low current stock price leave this company in a position to beat the market once the next wave of new products are released.
Everytime someone calls Nintendo dead, they set the new trend in gaming (see: Wii) and leave everyone gasping to catch up. Nintendo is the pace car.
Looks awfully cheap. Nintendo has a bigger moat than it tends to get credit for. I'm also entering the point in my life where I appreciate games that families can play together. Playstation rules the college kids, but Nintendo stuffs family stockings (and lets gamer dads buy new games "for the kids"!)
Nintendo is slowly releasing its dying breath. As I type, Sony is slowly outpreforming Nintendo in many ways. All the Nintendo games slaes have been decreasing over time due to the release of Sony's more popular, mainstram games such as MW3.
Bought shares in real life.
The new Wii U will sell, but I don't think we will see original wii numbers here. I'd say it's a strong buy right now for the next year to year-and-a-half.
Nintendo's price dropped recently since the 3DS came out this year, but this is by no means a common problem for the company. In the past Nintendo has done well in the video game market. Chances are when their new console, the Wii U, comes out in 2012, with it's much upgraded graphics and speed, sales will pick up drastically.
Two words: product differentiation. There is nothing quite like either Nintendo's hardware or software on the market, and being that they're in the middle of two hardware refreshes, now would be a good time to pick them up... buy BEFORE the WiiU launches.
Lots of cash, great IP, solid dividend. This is currently my largest individual stock position. I have averaged down to around 19.50. Even though it is likely the 3DS is a bust, I think this is a great entry point for a strong company. It may become more mispriced as a reflection of 3DS sales, however, I believe this long term investment has substantial upside and limited downside at current prices.
