What are you taking about??
I'll give it a go Mt Spokane.
In 2010 the US Government took to task this bunch of no hopers over the fact that 73% of Morgage stocks they rated in 2006 as AAA, had by 2010 become rated as "Junk", these guys and few others just like them could have/should have alerted the Market to the looming mortgage crisis, this is what they sell themselves as right ?? Crystal Ball Gazers, a Company that looks into a Companies worth, valuation, etc etc, but we all know they didn't do that re the companies they valued so highly in 2006 that in 2010 directly contributed to one of the worst financial crisis of the last 50 years.
So why do people, just like you Mt Spokane, still sing their praises, I think Moodys as an organisation and in the way in which they pronounce sentence on other private companies, is reprehensible, but the US Government still allow these guys to influence Markets, question here should be, why ??
I agree with you that Sony today is not a healthy company, I wouldn't invest a cent in Sony Stocks, but I'm just fine buying an a7r, a PS4, a Sony TV.
My comment was less about Sony and more about Moodys, I think they're charlatans.
On the other hand I think Sony are a reasonably good company going through hard times, time will tell if they can pull it together, others have, hopefully Sony will, I certainly hope so, it will cause a lot of grief to a lot of people if they dont survive, on the other hand I couldn't give a flying crocodile if Moodys sink into oblivion.
I guess that was what I was talking about.
