Sony is looking toward the long term future of the company and is not interested in turning a quick buck to satisfy the objective of a short term gain. Hedge funds want the quick buck and will do whatever is in their power to reach this goal and then they will move on to the next target. It will be interesting to see how Sony handles their stock price.
Sony is on the rebound and has great products in the pipeline including their high end media and media hardware. It is unfortunate that they have to deal with bloodsuckers who threaten their visions of who they want to be.
