I hope Japan gets a gigantic tsunami, and everyone dies in it.
Althought they make conservative earning projections, they did not bother to hedge the dollar. What is the point in being conservative if they leave themselves uncovered? They have hit products, but they take 3 years to ramp up to meet demand. What is the point of ramping up after three years of product shortages? Either ramp up, or run under demand. Don't fool around for three years and then get half serious. They open new markets, but how do noobs find out about on-line games? Tetrus, World of Goo, sure they can be downloaded, but my wife has no way to find out about these games on her own because Nintendo has not opened new advertising fronts. How about using the Wii as an video controller? Think they will make an agreement with Netflix? Think will let the Wii play DVD? What about requiring an investor in Japan to buy the equivalent of 800 shares of NTDOY to invest in Nintendo? how many small investors does that lock out? Still I think the shares are finally a buy.
