Quick, name some great Japanese companies. You may think of Toyota, Sony, Honda, and Mitsubishi. But Nintendo? That little game making company?
In case you haven't been paying much attention to Nintendo's meteoric rise in market capitalization I am here to inform you that Nintendo is now firmly ensconced as the third largest Japanese company behind Toyota and Mitsubishi Financial (Japan's largest bank).
It was only back in June of this year that Nintendo overtook Sony, then the fourth largest company in Japan. Now, Nintendo's market cap. is almost double that of Sony.
There doesn't seem to be any end in sight as both the Wii, DS, and Nintendo software continue to sell very well. Add to that an extremely well run company and you have the makings for even more success.
