28%.

What's the point of this exactly? Large stock movements are significant. They may not be indicative of long term issues but to say large stock movements are normal or mean nothing is nonsense. Ninty and Sony may shoot back up, they may not, but there is no need to be defensive about stock movements. That's irrational and dangerous if you own the stock. Never get an emotional attachment to a stock holding.

Considering how bad Sony's movie section performed, I am not suprised.

Year | Market Share | Gross
2014 | 12.31% | $1,275,223,934
2015 | 8.49% | $958,003,568

2014 wasn't even a great year...



What happened? Did Oculus have something to do with it?



I wonder how long Sony keeps their toes in other industries aside from video games when most of them are irrelevant these days. Maybe someone with some actual knowledge can enlighten me but I don't think there's any other electronic divisions within the company right now that are doing well.

Thats correct. They are doing well with sensors (high volume) and other more low volume items in electronics but as far as consumer electronics are concerned not well at all.  I dont see how they ever can to be honest.  Korean and Chinese will dominate consumer electronics going forward.

Movies is declining, but music will see year on year boosts for a while yet with streaming income rising.

Disappointing for Sony and nintendo. Sadly for them the dollar is not helping plus the entire stock market is suffering on top of that. It is however great for people like me who invest in Sony and Nintendo. Time to rebuy again and sell later this year when they both go way up.



Very good

Ehm a strong dollar is a good thing for Japanese companies that do lots of their business in the US. They get much better margins.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

smells like some big fishs are purposely pushing share prices down before the vr thing starts. kinda like last year with the whole daniel loeb exit. china panic sure helps as well. let's see what happens in the long run...



My impression is that the stock was stabilizing in December and even increasing up to CES while the geopolitical situation with North Korea and and the Chinese decline is effecting the entire international market in particular the Asian markets.

Sony is able to hit their FY PS4 sales target after they reached 35.9 million sold. And the only negative Sony news in recent days is the stock.
