Haha, even Pachter has changed his He said they will sell out of every unit they make. He estimated 3.6 million they were able to produce.

He is right for once on one thing though: Wii U will sell out!! :P

I see a pile of shit wearing a red tie.

Andy why do you say that?

BattleAxe1438d ago

Its obvious, he's talking about himself while he's looking in the mirror.

dirthurts1438d ago

It's obviously not obvious if I'm asking.
You're still making no points.
He's making valid observations of the market, which I mostly agree with. I'd put money on everything he said in this particular video.

Because Pachter is an idiot. Nearly everything he says has no evidence to back it up and ends up being wrong. He's a joke.

dirthurts1438d ago

I think you're missing the point.
He's an Analyst. That's what he does. It's conjecture. There isn't meant to be evidence. If you want evidence read a science journal. If you want predictions based on experience, look to this guy. Predictions are just that, predictions. Obviously, they're often wrong.

Evidence based on experience? You've got to be kidding me.

Analysts try to forecast the future using limited information, statistical tricks, and pull it out of your butt guesses.

They are good at lying, and making it believable...even so much that many believe what they say.

But ultimately, they are just about always wrong, because they are clueless.

Show me a wall street guy that gets it right on anything without it being a lucky clock is right twice a day guess and out of 100 people guessing one would be close enough to say 'this guy got it right', and I'll show you a guy that Wall Street still hasn't seen.

It is obvious, just some people believe the tricks work. Some people believe in 'confidence rates' and statistical modelling. Some people believe that the best way to know the future is to copy the past (actually that's the worst way). Some people believe that a guy who doesn't actually take the time to to figure it out, and has crappy journalist skills, and makes wild guesses with nothing real based on them, is just that a moron.

Actually analysts are supposed to analyze what's going on and be right. They're paid to be right. Which means for Wall Street they are wasting money on.....everyone because they aren't right, ever.

There's different types of predictions and different methods for predicting. Pachter just like almost every analyst uses the wrong methodology. You have to know the present trends and how the human mind works to have a shot to predict the future.

That's why in WWII you had guys like Gen. McArthur who had such lower casualties amongst his men, he knew how to predict the right way. Pachter would of been one of those dumb generals who led people into a coffin. Now he just makes alot of money like other idiots being wrong all the time.

Some people don't know the difference. Some people do. Some people are fooled by title and experience. While others actually look at what he actually does.
