The above graph shows a rise in expectations for returns on Nintendo stock since July of 2004. Ever since the Wii was formally unveiled (at least the console's concept sans controllers) at E3 2005, investors are clearly enthusiastic about the system's prospects as the above 105.2% run-up indicates. Strong DS sales have gotta be factored in there too. But has the stock appreciated too much? Care to make a comment bet on the price for this time next year? Ah, but talk is cheap. Any investors out there willing to let it ride on Nintendo with real dollars?
