  • PS4 Sales Could Slump And Drag On Sony (SNE)

    Goldman Sachs commented on Tuesday that while the recently announced PS4 from Sony (SNE) is priced right, its core features may not be enough to entice new buyers. Takashi Watanabe, an analyst with the firm, commented, "We believe the PS4 will be sufficiently attractive to core users as it will support the core game franchises. However, we are unsure whether these titles will really lead to growth in sales of PS4 as many can also be played on the PS3." Watanabe also noted that the PS4 lacks non-game entertainment, which could place it in the shadows of the features-heavy Xbox One. Sony shares were slightly up on Tuesday, gaining 0.94% on the day. The Bottom Line Shares of Sony Corp. (SNE) have 1.23% yield, based on Tuesday's closing price of $20.30. Sony Corp. (SNE) is not recommended at this time.  Be sure to visit our complete recommended list of the Best Dividend Stocks, as well as a detailed explanation of our ratings system here.
