Congrats if you invested in Nintendo stock last week!
Just pause for a moment and think about what this game has done for Nintendo’s market cap. Since last week’s launched, Nintendo is trading more than 55% higher: making the company worth a cool $9 BILLION more than it was just one week earlier.
Let me say that again…
Nintendo is worth $9B more now than it was a week ago.
All because people are chasing imaginary critters around.
One source estimates that Pokémon Go is making $1.6 million every single day, just from iOS devices, in the United States alone.
For those of you who think Pokémon Go is just another annoying fad—while, yes, you may be right—what’s alarming is the sheer virality of it.
Off the charts. Literally.
