Show me another Tech stock who's price went from $38 to $62 last year? Up 63% in 2001, that's just awesome. I paid 39.50 and have been adding on sharp pullbacks which ERTS does have at times. I love their games and everyone want to play them. ERTS is truly IN THE GAME!
I also agree with legendsmage in that Riccitiello is inept and a very poor manager of the dotcom side of EA. However, legendsmage is completely leaving out the core packaged goods side of the business in each one of his posts. You know, the side of EA that is VERY profitable with games like Potter, Madden, Bond, Tiger Woods, and so on. AND, these games are now available on more platforms than ever thanks to the new hardware released in the past 12 months (GBA, GC, and XBOX). I think legedsmage is one of the poor unfortunate people that got layed off from EA.com and he is venting via this message board. I prefer to follow my own instincts and they (and everything else around me) point to a very strong vid-game sector in the next 24+ months. EA.com could go under for all I care. That would be a blessing actually as ERTS would be that much more profitable without the drag of EA.Com.
Nice buying opportunity here as EA will top $750 million in revenue when earnings come out which is an all-time record for the company.
