I never did invest in Sony. Generally there is a lot of 'don't invest in Japanese companies' sentiment in the world right now. Going into details would take pages but basically a slow growth economy combined with certain insulation practices is a deterrent to foreign investors to japan.
I'm ok with saying what companies I have directly bought stock in.
They are as follows:
Deer & Company
That is it so far. I have come out ahead to this point (beating the S&P 500) but I often worry that I'm like a gambler. On a lucky streak but will crash soon :))) I hope not.

Also and yeah I know I'm droning on but this is an important point. There is what they call a 'short' market or short selling.
Something most on GF seem to know nothing about. Identifying a weak or more importantly overpriced company while others don't see it, can make you money through shorts.
So when I see people on GF saying Sony is doomed or MS is doomed or Nintendo is doomed, I just think:
"Um if your so confident then short the stock and stop telling everybody about the revelation you have had." :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))

.... look into rating agencies. It is a lot of BS. And there are many of them. Also um 17B is good no matter what.
Jesus Christ how the hell is Intel worth 167B? They don't even make anything that valuable. The majority of their profits come from selling CPUs, oh that's right they make the "BEST" cpus but they have a monopoly on ideas becasue of patent law.
It's common knowledge that Microsoft is dependent on copyright law to maintain their market-share and profits, since the majority of their profits come from selling licensed software (windows and office). Sony is not a monopoly but they certainly behave like one, they are also a notorious copyright aggressor. AMD and nVidia practically have a duopoly in the GPU market. Although no one has studied to why the GPU market is only concerted on two wall street firms most likey AMD and nVidia benefit from ip laws as well.
These billionaire dollar tech firms wouldn't be so big if the tech industry was operating on an actual free-market.

So we should take anything any analyst says w/o any evidence backing his claim at face value?

Japanese companies are often run like this. They start to fail and begin operating at a loss. They continue to operate at a loss sometimes for many years due to the fear of family shaming. After company no longer can operate at a loss, they are outcast to China where they are cheaply rebranded other a knockoff of their old brand.
U should be outcast to china.. for shame.

LOL @ all of the financial analysts in this topic.

Sales don't really matter when the manufacturer of the Xbox One can buy any exclusive they want if they so want it.
I already made a topic like this and even hardcore Xbox fans told me it doesnt matter how much money Microsoft has, it's Xbox Division is on a budget and they won't buy as many exclusives as you think.
