Nintendo's share price has hit ¥31,880, surpassing last year's July 20th peak caused by Pokémon Go of ¥31,770 making it the highest Nintendo has peaked in more than 5 years.

Here is how it looks in the 1 year range with how different this growth is compared to Pokémon Go's peak:

Also:

The Japanese company has seen its share price rise to ¥31,880 (£220), pushing it beyond the short-lived investor frenzy that attended the Pokémon Go craze last year, to its highest point since April 2010.

Nintendo’s market capitalisation has hit ¥4.32tn, making it the 19th biggest listed company in Japan.

Update:

The next peak to beat is ¥34,100 from December 2008.

What a way to end the week, Nintendo's share price had growth due to Capcom announcing Monster Hunter XX for Switch.

It was from 10am that Monster Hunter XX for Switch was announced.

Nintendo's Market Cap will soon match Sony if this keeps up.

Update 2:

Nintendo's stock value just beat the ¥34,100 peak set back in December 2008.

Their current market cap is ¥4.9T, Sony's in comparison is ¥5.28T

There's probably not going to be more peak records to beat currently if you look at past values.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

It'll stabilize after E3, I don't really expect it to stay up there for long, quite frankly. You know how the investing market can be.

When Nintendo's share price was dropping, NeoGAF users repeatedly said investors don't know the industry and that they are stupid. So i guess this means that Nintendo is doomed now.

Is that only because of the switch? or even because of the influence of the mobile games?

Is this where I bragged about having bought NTDOY at 17 and having earned 5 digits from it.

If you look at the 1 year range I posted, there are a lot of factors.

Switch, mobile, trump.

Yes, Trump, because of how unstable the US is due to Trump, Japanese investors picked companies that are more safe at the moment with their earnings.

Yes. Nintendo went mobile, so yes investor is more right than gaffer who swear by against that direction.

Today's 3,24% might be due to investors seeing the Rabbids as a possible long-term partnership with Ubisoft and opening the doors to other 3rd part partnerships. Gives hope.

Why this is just the typical soaring that always accompanies an acquisition.

Disney buying Nintendo confirmed.

To contextualise that last bit, as the latest financial release showed, Nintendo are ultimately firing on all cylinders atm. Their newest console has had a successful launch with supply failing to keep up with demand. Their latest three forays into the mobile market have all proven to be widely released and very profitable, even the 'weakest'. The other remaining console, while entering what may be its swan song year, is still selling as a proven success. Nintendo is indeed a very safe bet with its profit margins.

Edit:

That's... an interesting point actually. Or otherwise as an exclusive it's an indication of major third party support where previously that's been lacking for Nintendo's main console, and the question has been up in the air since the Switch launced. Just Dance was to be expected, but not this.

Long may it continue. I'm currently up 120% on a 10k investment. Yes, I'm blowing my own pole here. JP Morgan have a target price of 39000 yen so could be further to go.

Then investors will see that the Rabbids game isn't made by Nintendo and it's going to decrease again.
/s about how it happened with Pokémon GO

It's so good to see Nintendo back. The WiiU period was also when I lost interest in gaming. I like ps and pc too! It's just the world felt an empty place with Nintendo flailing.

Investors don't know the industry. They're looking for short-term gains which mobile brings.

Let's not bring out the quote of the investor in the Q&A who asked them to stop talking about childish things like video games.

Remember the stock price dropped after the positive reaction to the Switch reveal

I expected it would increase, just wish I owned more stock lol. We could see it continue to increase too.

Switch is poised to have a great holiday and first year.
Mobile projects have been successful with new projects in the pipeline that could be an even bigger success (not counting Pokémon Go)
Amiibo selling well again after a bit of a down turn with the Animal Crossing line
New 2DS may help 3DS have one more good holiday depending on bundles and sell price
