I hope Japan gets a gigantic tsunami, and everyone dies in it.
Check the share restrictions here: http://www.tse.or.jp/english/index.html Trading unit is often 1, unlike Nintendo's 100. The stocks are numbered (Nintendo is 7974) and advancing share price is shown in red, while declining is shown in green. Why won't Nintendo sponsor shares on foreign exchanges? I don't see the benefit to Nintendo shareholders. How about taking some of the 9 billion they have in the bank and buying back shares? Interest rates in Japan are close to zero, while the dividend is close to 5%. Technically Nintendo should borrow money to buy back shares! Someone is accumulating shares at 25000. Masamoto Yashiro is keeping the magic going.
