>>ERTS is expected to lose .25-.30/share this quarter while ATVI is expected to post about .10/share profit. >>Is that all you pay attention to, THIS quarter? >I was making a point . . . *you* are the one that said ATVI wasn't making any money. Apparently your view has changed.
Sorry, ERTSINVESTOR, it was nonamesleftt that said that. I was just pointing out his error.
To answer your question, no . . . I don't just look at a single quarter's results. However, from a high level view, I do find that companies that make money tend to do better than companies that lose money.
>Didn't you say you have no position in ERTS? Why all the chatter then?
Oh . . . geee . . . along with not knowing that you speak for the entire board, I guess I also didn't know that there was purchase requirement for posting. So many rules to keep track of.
>Is their some reason you keep touting ATVI over here? This is the ERTS board.
Don't you think talk about competitors is relevant? Or would you prefer to pretend that they don't exist? But anyway, it was you & Mr.Nonameslefttt that brought up the topic . . . so don't bring them up if you don't wish to discuss them.
Yeah, we are in a bear market that is severely punishing all overinflated tech companies and I'm gonna buy a tech company with 91 PE ratio that is about to announce a quarterly loss that will rocket the PE ratio up to 200 or so. I think not. It is certainly possible that some PS2 hype could drive it up into the 50s or even 60s, but I really doubt it. The PS2 launch disaster is well known and will become the main focus of the PS2 hype stories in the coming weeks. Thus, I seriously doubt that the PS2 hype will work since all the hype will be tempered by the fact that only 1.3M or so PS2s will be available. The market really seems to be in a "show me profits *now*" mood and ERTS just doesn't have them right now. (They will eventually, but that's not selling well on Wall Street right now.)
Oh, you have GOT to be kidding! Weren't you the one talking up ATVI?!?!?! ATVI doesn't even HAVE a PE ratio. Why? Because they aren't making any money! This post is absolutely hilarious. I expected more from a lawyer. Really!
