The company name is Funcom, and I dont really care much about the price I pay pr share either right now. One simple reason, Age of Conan. Age of Conan is a massive multiplayer online roleplay game (mmorpg) based in a fantasy world. If a mmorpg game is successful, the company behind it makes incredibly much money. Examples of such successes are Blizzards World of Warcraft, Sonys EverQuest. Funcom have delivered before with Anarchy Online which was a success when it came out, and their new game Age of Conan is ready in the first quarter of 2007. I played EverQuest for 4 years, and I know what’s needed for a mmorpg to be a success. Age of Conan has everything, even a huge group of people waiting with high expectations for the game to be released. You cant tell that from the stock price tough, and I am convinced that the price pr share will skyrocket after it’s release.
There you have my reasons for purchasing stocks in Funcom, but I am well aware that I take a huge risk. If the game fails completly, Funcom will most likley go bankrupt and I loose all my money. If that happends, I have to start over again. One thing is for sure, I will never ever give up.
