Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo's Stock: Values Keep Rising

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!

Posts below of the topic discussion over the past few weeks:

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

Nintendo's stock continues to rise. Nintendo's value has risen from 5.3T yen to 6.15T Yen surpassing Sony's, which has slipped from 5.61T to 5.22T yen.

In Euros, the market caps are:

Nintendo: 46.4B
Sony: 39.4B

UPDATE October 11

Nintendo has now risen to 6.24T yen, meaning Nintendo has surpassed Honda (6.16T). Nintendo is now the second most valuable global brand from Japan, only topped by Toyota. It is also now the 10th most valuable Japanese corporation overall (thanks vgc).

01. Toyota - 22.62T yen
02. NTT - 10.86T yen

Damn, I meant this for the Nintendo forum.

Nintendo fan but I think that stock is overpriced for sure. I wouldn't touch that as an investor.

Too many investors giddy about China ... Nintendo has tried to enter the Chinese market before to limited success and there are a lot of variables there.

IIRC there was a lot of hype about Xbox One and PS4 entering the Chinese market too. Then... it never really came to much at all and hasn't been mentioned since



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Yeah I think investors are over reacting. I'd love to be proven wrong but yeah I don't think this will hold for much longer. That being said, it's crazy that Nintendo even gets within reach of Sony given the difference of ventures each company has taken on.

Stock and market cap is a very funny place when basically Nintendo tying or being a little bellow Sony in videogames make both companies have the same market value as a whole. I'm happy Nintendo is on the upward movement and that Sony stocks have recovered a lot, but I don't really put much value on stock market.

Which from a stock valuation market indicates an overpriced stock. A real easy tip off is to look at net profit ... if their stock is almost the same price as it was during the Wii/DS days, the profit numbers should be close too ... but they're not even close. When a company's bottom line profit doesn't reflect the price of the stock, that's a massive sign that you're buying a stock inflated by speculation. 

Investors are too giddy over China, piracy is rampant in China. Nintendo has tried various ventures in China before to limited success. 



Can't wait to hear about this for the next 3 months lol

That's a giant tip off of a massively over priced stock.

Nintendo stocks were highest in peak of Wii/DS era and they were at 70 JPY, I can see Nintendo stock finish at years end around 50 JPY (curently they are around 43 JPY) .
