I also heard reasoning that Donald Trump's tariffs on Chinese manufactured electronics have caused investors to become shaky. But, a poor E3 showing, vs. Gamestop seeing sales double during E3 week is a weak argument. Pokemon and Smash Bros. are among Nintendo's best selling franchises, I wouldn't exactly call that a "poor" showing. The stock market in itself is volatile, this happens. Hell, it dropped by like 5% after the Lets Go announcements. Most of these investors don't necessarily understand Nintendo or the game industry like they should.
For example, Pokemon Go shot Nintendo's stocks up the roof, when investors should have been investing in Niantic or The Pokemon Company as they get a greater cut than Nintendo. It was a bad evaluation by the market
And since when did ordinary gamers become invested in a market they have no funds in, and then dictate whether this means Nintendo is in trouble or not? Smh... Not saying it happens here but man, the internet can be silly sometimes.
