    • Ok, just for the sake of argument; let's say that the street is waiting to see how SWTOR subscriptions turn out and also whether or not the pessimistic guidance goes for next quarter;;;;;; If subs come on in droves with much profitability and the earnings OUTPERFORMS again, what will the reaction be to the May ER? Hopefully, whether they give good/bad/indifferent guidance then, the market will see EA as a money making company and the pps will react accordingly. Could be a good time to enjoy a nice bump and cash out before the usual summer doldrums.... Thoughts and comments are welcome. dales53

      • I'm out, there is easier money to be made else where. I made great money trading EA last year but got stuck holding and for 1.5 months, doing nothing but losing money. EA like to trade $17.50 to $19.50, I've got a feeling it's going to slip back into that span for a while. I could have been in virtually any stock I trade in and made 2% to 4% today, EA down on a day like this, after a good ER resulting in a mere 6% bump to give up almost 2% today. No thanks, I'll go play EA now but not their stock, the company doesn't know how to promote its stock. Range trading now or I'll be back in long in August/Sept for the usual seasonal play.

    • More like a Lead Balloon! Very frustrating day. I agree with some of the comments above, but nonetheless was expecting it to ride the overall wave of the market today. This stock was battered for weeks by what turned out to be bogus SW concerns, bogus category sales reports and a Zynga stock which is now on fire. One would think we would get more of that sell off back. Especially today. Not so....

    • me either.. It was up .30 and it was all down hill from there
