Sony jumped to the highest in more than a decade after raised its forecast for the current fiscal year, thanks to strong sales of the PlayStation 4 console, and profits from its stake in recently listed Spotify.

The stock rose as much as 5.4 PC in early trading in Tokyo, heading for its highest close since 2008, after the company raised its full-year net profit and sales, and sharply beat estimates operating profit for the second quarter.

“Sony provided a great beat on all fronts,” said analyst Jeffrey Atul Goyal the. “The gaming segment had an impressive quarter with the ‘God of success in the war’. We do not think that he can beat this quarter in the near future. But, with the first batch of games, we expect that this will remain a big driver.”

Net profit will reach 500 billion yen (€3.85 billion) on sales of 8.6 trillion yen until March, the Tokyo-based company. The previous forecast called for 480bn yen 8.3 trillion yen.

Sony cited higher than expected sales of games for the revision of the income, while recent debut on the market music service added in cash to the bottom line. The company also reported a strong quarter, operating profit 195bn yen sharply exceeding average forecasts to 145.4 billion yen. This should come as a relief to investors who were caught off guard in April when the new Director-General Kenichiro Yoshida presented a pessimistic Outlook.

Company PlayStation jumped 36pcs and operating profit nearly five times, driving stronger-than-expected sales of new games. Also had more titles for sale in digital form, which increases profitability. (Bloomberg)
