Holiday Sales Strong, Sony’s Stringer Says
Sales for electronics this holiday season have been strong worldwide, despite softness in other areas of the economy That’s according to Sony’s CEO, Howard Stringer, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, as well as other reporters
Stringer added that the company is likely to meet its goal of a 5 percent operating profit when the fiscal year ends in March. That’s due largely to the popularity of the Cybershot camera line and the Vaio PC, as well as what may at last be a turnaround for the PlayStation 3 console.
“So far, the electronics sales seem to be holding well,” Stringer told the reporters.
