As speculation on Nintendo's profit potential rise, stock values recover to Wii/DS levels as Nintendo's value rockets upward.
It's a very exciting time to be an Nintendo fan with all of these success stories.
The speculation by investors is that Nintendo is set to dominate!

September 20th post
Nintendo's upward trending market cap has doubled over the past year, and is now touching the 40 billion euro mark (Over 5.3T yen), the highest it has been since 2008, while Sony's has dropped over the last few months to below 42 billion (5.61T yen). Sony peaked in July of this year, and has begun to trend downward. At the current trends over the past few months, Nintendo should pass Sony in the not so distant future.
Of course, anything could happen to change the direction, but now that both companies have done their major pre-TGS shows, it looks like this is increasingly unlikely. Keep in mind, Sony is a much larger business than Nintendo, they don't just do videogames, but these other businesses they're involved in can be both an advantage and a disadvantage (although, typically it's the prior).
This is exciting news for those of us who like to see Nintendo's success on the rise.
UPDATE October 10
