GTA 5 delay causes stock in Take Two to fumble

Thursday, 31st January 2013 15:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

In the wake of news that GTA 5 has been delayed from spring into September, the market freaked out a bit, causing stock in Take-Two to fall 7.96%. The market fluctuates, however, and now stock in the firm is only down by 6.47% – so expect it to change again soon. When NASDAQ opened, stock in the firm was trading at $12.99, and now its down to $12.23. Market Watch also reports that shares in GameStop took a tumble with the news as well, falling by 1.7%.

    I don’t understand the stock market sometimes, Hear say and small things like a game being delayed to make it better send stock prices into a tizzy

    But if you had money tied up in that and you were only in it for the short term as a lot of traders are, then you will react fast and move into something else for the gain. They care little for the company that they are moving from, it was a means to an end. It will bounce though, it always does, because the longer term traders will see this as an opportunity to buy.

    @1: An Iranian diplomat shaking his fist at a Saudi diplomat can send gas prices soaring. Why are you so surprised? It’s all speculative.

    Props to Rockstar for being the perfectionists they are and refusing to ship their vision until it’s ready.
