Nintendo Stock Jumps 4%, Highest Close Since July 2011

super_mario_3d_world_flag

Nintendo stock has jumped four percent which is the highest level in almost two years. The stock has risen due to the influx of new video game titles which are boosting overseas revenue. High profile titles such as Animal Crossing: New Leaf made the Nintendo 3DS the best-selling video game device in the United States in June. A report which states that China may be lifting the ban on consoles has also caused stock to rise. The NPD group said last week that Nintendo had sold 225,000 of its 3DS handheld consoles in the U.S.

“The stock is up from mixing all these factors. The stock is in a upward trend. There may be some investors who are forced to buy back the shares.”

– Takashi Oba, a senior strategist at Okasan Securities Co.

  1. First! I love Nintendo and glad to say I own over 1000 shares of Nintendo stock currently!

    1. Now is the time to buy Nintendo shares! Wish I could invest while their stocks are low.

        1. You know, I never thought that the term “Leave luck to heaven” meant Nintendo. Pretty cool :)

    1. I would just like to point out though, that nintendo’s stock increase of 4.5 isnt too major, if you take into consideration the fact that their stock is mainly falling, since the end of 2011, with small jumps occasionally of course, which MNN may have reported.
      With the release of pikmin and the success oft the glorious N3DS, i would charachterize the rise “normally expected”. Keep in mind that sonys stock price has been lower than nintendo’s before ps4, and now has surpassed it ninty-17 sony-22. Now im not flaming a war or anything, but even though this news might sparkle to some, i just have to say that stock prices always have ups and downs, which are hardly predictable to a high level
      As an “investor”, this makes me smile a bit, as i was looking forward to this day and more days like these
      As a gamer, unless it greatly affects a company, stock prices are irrelevant to me, and i believe ninty is able to handle them effectively, without me worried about it

      1. Well said and I couldn’t agree more…

        But as a Commander I have to spark the Spark of as many Nintendo Drones as possible with news like this…

        Since we are in difficult times today just for liking Nintendo…

    1. I’m sure it is making up an excuse to bash our Empire at any moment now…

        1. Yes, the Pachter creature has spit out too much fire to be called a Gamer…

          Also note everyone, I said numerous times before about the great Dragon Empire that they may finally lift the ban on consoles and when they do, we will have half a billion potential new recruits to our beloved Empire!

          1. We all know China due to their strong and great cultural strength, will mostly game Nintendo.

            1. Considering they make their own cute copies of our systems like the Vii and Vii U (I think) and that their biggest gaming company I think is Chintendo…

              We welcome you Dragons!

          2. Not really. China is still a developing country and is VERY poor. Not to mention they’re not going to buy them because most likely they’ll be more expensive there than US or Europe. Imported goods can be twice the cost in China. And on top of that, no one would bother because they can just copy the games and play it on their own.

    2. “Pachter says it is illogical for Nintendo to increase stock when he gets paid to say it is failing”
      Pachter’s bash in a nutshell

      1. Did you know that the Atarian Imperial Forces are only worth 3,5 million dollars today?…

        It’s so pathetic…

        1. Yeah but you know pachter he only supports everythin from “great ol ´merica” starsplangedbanger lolololololololol. I just hate how much full of shit that guy is talkin about things he dont know anything. 3DS dominates fastest sellin system EVER and he just boastes about his shitty tablets which are from spymerica!

          1. Indeed and yet that creature has the nerve to say ” Nintendo fanboys will buy anything that has Nintendo on it, even if it’s a box with the Nintendo logo”…

            Hahahahah what a joke that Xbox loving fool is…

  2. Great news has been with nintendo this whole year might I add. Remember that even in the off month of February and may nintendo stock points jumped by 9 and then 2.2 respectively. The brilliance of the 3DS is that it is the leading next generation console. With games and not just mundane repetitive FPS galore.

    Nintendo Commander as I stated all those months ago to the naysayers :

    ” Patience is a great virtue.”

    1. Indeed we did comrade…

      These Xbots, Sonyans and CPU “Master Race” shall learn never to underestimate our Empire…

        1. Indeed, they might have evolved physiology but their minds are still retarded…

        2. He was being sarcastic, PC orcs have had DRM shoved up their wazoos for eons, funny thing they didn’t even fight it it.

          1. Well the Microsoft God Bill Gates is one of the Gods of the Computer universe that unlike his subspecies, the Xbots, managed to brainwash the majority of this ancient “Master Race”…

            1. Commander, while I agree with most of the things you say, I don´t understand why you speak of an empire. Nintendo = quality. Like in everything else in life the majority doesn´t reach that point of understanding so I don´t really care if Nintendo sells less as long as they keep making games and consoles to play them. Nintendo fan since 1992

            2. With this being said, I don´t expect others to fail. I rather expect more people to raise their IQ and play not only quality games but also understand games as a form of art. I don´t consider Mass Effect as artistic as Super Mario. Why? One is a cinemathic game experience with a lot of shooting and some rpg. The other one was designed for one to make decisions and to overcome obstacles using the brain

              1. Mr.Desi, I see that you have been a loyal soldier indeed and we all salute you…

                When I mean “Empire”, I don’t mean in the exact same sense as an evil one where no one has any rights and so on…

                More like a democratic fun union of Nintendo executives, developers and gamers alike all contributing to the glorious fun amd quality of Nintendo…

                I so agree, species like the Xbots or Sonyans only see what they see and cannot see the inner core of a great game like Super Mario…

                Although it may not look “mature” it certainly beats those “mature” games in difficulty any day…

                I just wish the bosses had the same level of difficulty as some levels…

                1. Agreed. I’m a bit sad tha the artistic industry is going nowhere. Everything is only about measuring dicks and you can see that in music, cinema and games. I’ll be a very sad person the day Nintendo doesn’t triumph. Watching Iwata and Myiamoto speaking about their “babies” is unique nowadays

                  1. Me too…

                    It would be like a very big part of the words fun, quality, innovation and creativity would have lost its meaning and all that would be left are power hungry graphics Sonyan fanatics vs the mindless mainstream ego of the Xbots…

                    We need new allies like the Shin’en Tribe to lead us into the future…

                    1. What I see is that Nintendo tries to buy the most creative developers so they don’t depend on 3rd party anymore. I love football though and I’m pissed for not getting Fifa or Pes this year

                    2. It’s a pitty Shinen didn’t make a dlc for Nano Assault with more levels. I’d gladly pay

        1. Those Ouyanots are about as annoying as eating…

          The others are too busy waging war on the Smartphone universe to be any real threat to us today…

          The Xbots are the primary target…

      1. I’m pretty sure he was being sarcastic as it wouldn’t make any sense at all being truthful on this subject…

  3. Imagine how Nintendo will prosper when their heavy hitters will be released, Zelda, Mario, Pokémon, ooohhh how I can see it now, Nintendo will soon be celebrating their triumph over Patchers grave as well as EAs betrayal, Long live Nintendo!

  4. Cool- I was gettin’ kind of scared for Iwata there…
    Part of me still really wants to see a Metroid before I open my wallet…

          1. There is a vent on the side, and on top, both pull air in, then blow it out the back via the fan installed back there.

            To clear the dust, take an old toothbrush, rub the vents GENTLY and blow air into the exit port on the back.

            several sneezes later, your wiiU us dust free, and you can begin dusting the floor!

                1. Honestly there are many reasons for me. I like to see people’s reactions, it’s funny, and it makes this site more entertaining.

                  P.S: I only occasionally troll this site, if it annoys you, I’ll stop :)

                1. Ok true i give credit unlease he’s nice like you said :-) thanks Anubis for being honest (;

                  1. Thanks. I don’t want to ruin this site, I just want to make it more entertaining (if I can) ;-)

  5. Does anyone know if “just anyone” can buy Nintendo stock? I kinda want to… It’s going to go through the roof soon!!! 💋

    1. Yes… however its expensive…….. but to answer, yes anyone can buy stock (i bought microsoft stock once for a school project)

  6. Oh noooOoooOOOooooo…. Nintendo sure is DoooOOOOOOoooooOOOOmed……… i wanna see the naysayers faces now that nintendo is doing amazing

  7. I doubt any of us here are actual investors.

    And no, buying their products does not make you an investor.

  8. but that does make us a part of the greatest corporation ever, Nintendo live for the players not on the players like Sony and Xcocks, Nintendo did not pry on us for money money money, updates such as DLC will cost money but Nintendo will always give us a freebie, plus Nintendo keep us in the loop with the Directs and such, plus when Nintendo seldomly make an error you can count on them to fix it
