I have said it before that EA and ACCLAIM are not competing with each other at the moment because they are both positioned in other consoles.
Desperate AKLM employee? Please Earl, name calling will not get you anywhere. I started my position in AKLM last November and have been accumulating more on the way up.
Bottom line, EA has another great year, while AKLM earns .40 for FY 98 and has the best quarter ever in 1st quarter 99 (christmas quarter). EA worth 3 billion, AKLM worth 300 million I like the value in AKLM.
I will say it again AKLM is not a better company then ERTS but has the better value. I like trading ERTS when it drops a few points because it's a solid company and is a good stock and rebounds. One reason I really like it in the christmas quarter is the SquareSoft RPG's will bring some big sales in. If you want to fight between AKLM and ERTS so be it, but I will continue to buy both and other gaming stocks because the market is about profits.
I don't know why you are so into comparing AKLM vs. ERTS because they really are apples and oranges. EA is the class of the industry and AKLM is still trying to gain some much needed respect. They beat the street estimate by 300% and the stock went down??? Still a lot of fundamental issues here that people are not liking otherwise the stock would be trading much higher. You sound to me like a desperate Aklm employee or one of the many Aklm investors who have lost their shirts over the past several months rather than an expert on AI and/or the competitive dynamics of the videogame industry.
I can appreciate your passion (desperation) but comparing Aklm and EA at this point really doesn't make sense.
Bottom line, EA will have another record year and Aklm will continue to struggle. The rich get richer!
Carry on. You have some serious last minute changes to make to that QBC game of yours if you want to compete with the Madden's of the world.
Imagamer please tell me how Madden will hands down win the football war in the N64 platform? Last year EA lost it in both PSX and N64 and all of a sudden they will win both? QBC 99 will be a great football game this year. Imagamer also AKLM earned .09 last quarter estimates were .03, hmm Turok 2, and WWF Warzone coming and I guess AKLM is in really deep trouble. I guess the news that Mcgrath and ASB 99 were both in the top 10 sellers in June also is terrible news <g> It doesn't matter if EA wins or losses N64, they are concentrating on PSX platform and PC. This year QBC 99 will be on PC to compete with Madden 99 on PC also. It will be a good war this year, but if Madden is nearly as slow as World Cup 98 which is in MID RES then Madden in high res is in trouble.
with home depot, i think it is a great stock, maybe one of the best, i don't know much about the rest except ea sports, the thing i don't like about ea is it's high price, but i think it is a great company that is very stable.
and it all starts with the juvenile AKLM investors. First you fill this board up with needless hype about AKLM, then every meathead from DC to Cali, comes out of the woodwork to bash on one person or another. And then to top it off, you get some add for a condo. What the hell is going on? This board used to be filled with intelligent insight. Now all it is filled with is shit. spurs, you are one of the major factors behind this. Little boy spurs, you are an ignorant child. The stock market is way beyond your limited expertise. If you think for one moment that posting AKLM hype here will boost AKLM's price, well my boy, you are very wrong. Granted, AKLM may be on its way back up. Point taken. But come on now son, posting countless times throughout the week, saying the same ol crap, what are you trying to prove? As for the rest of you dipshits coming to his rescue, know that you also look the fool. Im sure your probably all long AKLM, so I understand the anxiety, but come now. This board is for ERTS, and related issues. Saying "AKLM to double by Christmas" or "ASB99 best sport game of the year" is needless hype that takes away from the posters credibility, as well as the stocks.
