But.. the operating profit!!



Yay!!!

I was wondering if sony expected this kind of drop so thats why they decsided to show the ps4 on feb to hopefuly make up some of that drop.



Dont even sweat it guys... people here tells me PS4 will bring sony back!.. wait and see!



 

Meh investors knew they were not doing good and thought that sony could not do anymore worse...

It must be great for Apple and Samsung to see that they have nothing to do to bring Sony down. Sony hurt themself.

Wonder if the PS4 announcement is going to help things. Guess we just have to wait and see.

That's what I assumed as soon as I heard the Feb 20th date.

I was like "hmm showing off new hardware roughly a week after your financial come out"

To me it looked like they are trying to get some positive news by showing off a new product.  If their financials would have been amazing, then no need to show off PS4 yet.

Huh I'm shocked. Thought for sure the market consensus was that Sony was in an awful position and doing awful.

I guess Panasonic and Sharp raised expectations last minute?


The consensus was for a net profit.  I bought my shares late last year based on that and luckily they shot up, so no harm done if I sell today. 


Fair enough, guess i haven't been paying much attention since i saw a bunch of analysts just really take a negative outlook a month or two ago.  I'm really only a long term multiple year investor so i more or less have written off the entire Japanese Electronics market.

Surprised you wouldn't just wait till the 20th though hoping for a minor bump.  Though i suppose there is nothing preventing it from going lower.


I've made around 40%. That's enough, you have to know when to take profit and not be greedy. 


Are you good with stocks and shares?  Ive always been curious about buying that stuff but it's kind of scary too lol
