The Gaming Industry Index
Time to show old and grumpy who we really are. I think we all know “old and grumpy”. He’s your boss, your neighbor, that creepy guy over there. “Old and Grumpy” (or “OG” from henceforth) looks down his nose at video games, youth, and everything you represent. OG thinks your generation is full of slackers, dopers, and morons. We are far too idiotic to understand something like the stock exchange, let alone how to invest properly. Time to pwn OG like only a gamer can.
If you are reading this, and I’m assuming you are, you have a vast knowledge of the gaming industry that very few possess. I’m not sure if you have ever realized this, but that knowledge can sometimes be directly related to flows in the stock market. We knew before anyone else that the Nintendo Wii would sell extremely well, and low and behold, the Nintendo stock went through the roof. Is your Xbox 360 getting the “Red Ring of Death”? Sure enough, that has direct impacts on the nature of Microsoft stock. With our extreme amount of gaming product insight, we are perfectly suited to predict swings in gaming industry stock.
Here is a listing of some of the most representative gaming stocks on the market today:
You might notice a certain downward trend. (except for Nintendo, of course) Could this mid-year downward turn be leading the way for one of the biggest holiday seasons ever? I’m guessing you probably know the answer. We are approaching one of the most anticipated holiday seasons of all-time, and the gaming industry is poised to feel the effect. It’s not really that hard, beyond the numbers and charts. If you think Grand Theft Auto 4 will be the biggest launch this year, then put your money in that direction. Saddle up gamers, it’s going to be an exciting holiday season.
