this is most likely due to its cellphone division, still this is pointless, stocks will go back up again.

Yeah, Sony are saying it's almost entirely due to the phones.

The stock market rises and then falls the same way. This isn't really news.

it's the high price of oil. Which sucks becaues I bought sony about a year ago at 47.40, either way, It'll go back up during holidays. I expect a lot of blu-ray players, BRD, music/movie sales, and ps3/games sales.

you should have bought Nintendo's stock options instead; you'ld be rich by now.

Considering it'd have paid at around 87 a share and would only be able to pick up about half as many shares, I'd make no more. What I should've done is sold at 57 a share and made a couple hundred bucks.

Plus I still get paid a dividend off of sony's shares.

Either way, oil prices are bringing down consumer markets and it sucks, but if oil dives then there's fears of instability and the markets drop more.

Also, to those who disagreed, care to explain why? Are you saying I didn't by shares of SNE?

This sliding economy has hurt a lot of companies, electronics are not essentials and it's hurting Sony and Microsoft.

The reason game consoles are doing well is because people have less to spend on entertainment, so try and get something they can use for longer.
