    • I understand your excitement about AKLM, the
      stock, not the company, I hold some shares. I'll buy
      more when the chart looks better.

      But please
      stop wasting our time with posts that contain
      speculation rather than information.

      If you read the
      posts from those of us who play the stock market like
      it is for keeps, not for fun, you'll see that many
      of us fully expect ERTS stock to go down. Telling us
      that it is going to go down isn't going to scare us or
      make us think any better of AKLM. We're just waiting
      for the last BUY opportunity before the fall. And in
      the fall, many of us will sell the moment the annual
      slide in price begins.

      I don't care how many
      games AKLM sells, if they can't deliver solid profits
      consistently, they will never be ERTS.

      And the quality
      of a BBS isn't measured in the raw number of posts,
      it's measured in the quality of those posts. I'd
      prefer to read fewer, better posts. Thanks

      Now, if you have some valuable information, please
      post it.

      • I agree with Raphael. Valuable info indeed,
        instead of "making fun" of ERTS for being slow into the
        N64 market, realize that even though AKLM had a top 4
        game in the N64 market for June (see post #442), it
        still wasn't enough to put AKLM in the top TEN of ALL
        video games meaning (for those that can't follow), ERTS
        would rather be in the top ten of a #1 market than in
        the top 4 of a #2 market. This is especially true
        when the #2 market requires 3-4 times COGS. I'm
        guessing if it weren't for the fact that Nintendo CAME TO
        ERTS (not the other way around mind you), EA probably
        wouldn't have even bothered with the market until this
        year. That's not a bad thing, at least for those
        companies that focus on profitability.
