IFIS (International Financial Information Service) recently pulled data for analysts and their predictions of Capcom stock
in Japan, and the vast majority of them placed favor on the house that Mega Man
built. In fact, out of the 20 firms listed, not a single one had a "sell" recommendation on Capcom
stock, with the lowest rating out of the bunch being simply "neutral."
What's even more interesting is the trend in analyst forecasts compared to reported figures. They've pretty much been on the money, with averages for predictions of operating income and earnings per share coming alarmingly close to actual figures. We're assuming these analysts haven't yet heard about Resident Evil 5's numbers
, so expect hearts, unicorns and Capcom logos to populate every page of their diaries next week.
