2013 still a profitable Longshot ... spin off Pictures & Music into a separately traded company, sell off computers & semiconductors, downsize Corporate and overall Staffing by another 15% and maybe, just maybe they'll be able to focus on Consumer Products, Mobile & Games enough to be a winner again.
Wouldn't buy it until you're scared to do so! Still too much optimism.
Most of that is not going to happen. The Japanese culture is too entrenched in their ways and they are too stubborn to make serious changes. The entire nation and most of the companies will face a significant crisis as demographics and other countries catch up to them.
Maybe by the time SNE is approaching $5 per share ($9.69 today) , MGT will finally announce a spin-off or direct sale of Sony Entertainment (Movies - TV - Music) - the only real value in the company outside of patents and real estate, everything else is an out-dated widget.
Single digits? I am not so sure about that, seems to be at the point for a serious value trade. Thinking of getting in here at $14. May reconsider if the downside is below 10, but I do not forsee that. Trading at way less than book value, which of course could be a myth.
