Re: Tony, even though I really like Gameloft and their games, as a parent there is one area where I have a little concern… The premium games like Asphalt6 feel like the parent is getting a lot of bang for their buck, as it is quite affordable when compared to the typical Nintendo DS game that my son plays (each costing $10 to $40 a game), BUT when my son brings me a game and says Daddy this game needs your approval to selling me an extra blank…
FYI, it's nearly a year since I wrote that and I can confirm now that the free-mium path to success really works!!! My son frequently comes to both his mom and I and he has managed to nickel and dime a lot of coins out of us. She's a little more of a push over than I am, but I'll almost always approve an in app purchase for a dollar or two as long as it keeps him happy for a few days. Of course, it a different story if he's back in a few minutes looking for another upgrade; at that point I'll tell him it's time to download a different game (it does happen).
Regardless, according to their website they are now downloaded a million games per day to devices covering almost every type of platform you can think of... Those sort of numbers will lead to a lot of upgrades and that's all good for both Gameloft and its shareholders.
Hi tsanalysis, are you still out there? I'd love to see your updated analysis on GameLoft... Personally I'm considering adding a lot more and letting it ride for a decade or two but would love to see what your recent thoughts are before I make any new purchases... FYI, it's already about 4% of my portfolio but I could see it going much higher - Best regards, Robear
Re: i think you guys don't understand how the gameloft shares on pinksheets work they're actually proxies to the Europe shares. so the liquidity is the same because it's the same! you just have to use the Euroup stock to determine on what you can sell and how much and when. :D it's sorta complicated since the time zone difference is significant. but that's how ADRs on pink sheets function. :D not actually like ADRs on other exchanges that actually trade independently - by A Yahoo!

Does that mean that if I place a trade at midnight PST that it might go through as soon as the Paris exchange opens? Or does one need to wait until the American exchanges open and hope that their trade goes through by 8:30am PST? (the time that Euronext closes) Does anyone know if this ADR represents shares on the Euronext or on the Frankfurt exchange? The Frankfurt exchange appears to be open a few hours longer?
