Samsung shares fall again to a nine-month low on diminished earnings outlook
Samsung's shares have fallen on hard times ever since word on the grapevine leaked by analysts and Korean publications that the company has reduced the parts orders with suppliers for the flagship Galaxy S4. Samsung lost about $12 billion in market cap during the process, and now it has taken a beating again.

On Wednesday during regular trading hours on the Korean stock exchange, shares of Samsung Electronics fell another 3 percent, dropping to a nine month low, on rumors that it is going to report diminishing earnings for the April-June period, compared with the analysts' predictions. 

The shares have been falling for a sixth consecutive session, despite Samsung rocking announcement many new products in the last few weeks - most of the bread-and-butter new mobile devices were niche versions of the Galaxy S4 like the Zoom or Active, while the big innovations came with Wintel products like the ATIV Q convertible, rather than in mobile, where Samsung's margins are much higher.

What mistakes would that be? Samsung shares will rocket back up either when the note 3 comes out or when design 3.0 comes....

They have released more than 5 variants of GS4.. Thats what HTC had done with their One X.
One X, One X+, One XL..

Note 3 will succeed for sure.

One of HTC's mistakes was not following up great phones with great phones. EVO was outstanding, EVO 3D fail, EVO Shift fail, EVO Design?.

Margins on high end PC's like ATIV Q also will be high. But the problem is they wont sell as many of those products like Smartphones.

unless the note 3 is a major breakthrough, or else samsung is gonna have a hard time while OEMs like HTC, sony and LG are emerging.

Samsung sold 31% more smartphones in the first quarter over last year just in Europe, so what hard times are coming exactly? The Ativ like-up looks spectacular with Q-like solutions having epic potential, the Note III and Androir DSLR are hotly anticipated, Tizen phones are coming and then next year flexible displays will change everything, guess who's leading that race.

A single brand can't compete in every product
No matter they come up with laptops
Interchangable android cameras
Flexible displays
Samsung will come down now
Nothing is permanent
Why all this news coming out suddenly??
Why all this didnt happen in 2011 or 2012
Why now??
Something is changing

dont forget they might have pipelined 200% increased production but sales maybe only 31% increase just some example i gave here so in that case its obviously a big lose,

if you watch nokia currect strategy they are limiting their production as per demand , while samsung is spaming their devices that dont even have the fame of SGS4 like other ZOOM or midrange phones

if i am not wrong they only got 2 lines that are key saling product SGS1,2,3,4.... and Note1,2,... rest is crap or not even competetive

well,this is what you get when you use s4 branding on stupid phones(except s4active)
now to regain share value,bring design 3.0 ASAP

The high-end market is now diluted due to the onslaught of cheaper sub $200 Android phones, the gap between high end Qualcom and entry level quad core Mediatek phones is too close now in terms of features vs price difference! And this didnt exist a year ago!....I think the trend will still continue ..regardless as to whether the NOTE 3 will present some killer features or not

Apple isn't exempted either.

The GS4 despite lower sales than its 1st month is STILL the best selling Android around either way and it's still far ahead of any competitors :)

Stocks will rise on speculations and fall by manipulation, thats the way pyramids are designed to work... Bankers buy low and sell high... So if Samsung had said we'll sale 3 million a month, but sold 7 million, its stock would have doubled by now huh.?. Same company different stock price... Wallstreet rules this world, but don't be fooled.

No wonder. Same childish design, same cheap plastic material, overheating exynos 5 CPU are the causes

i dont get it about childish design?? galaxy family always feels great in hand than other phones and you get removable battery as a bonus too.. cheap plastic?? it's polycarbonate if you didn't know.. overheating exynos cpu?? don't worry firmware upgrade will solve the problem i think..

I agree. What is about design??? whatever design it is, a person will get only one mobile. If design is so important rather than cost & performance, & u dont like the samsung design, get something u like. Stop trolling about design.
People saying same design. I guess all iPhones are of different design. FTW.. Even sony mobiles have same kinda design. Only company whose designs are awesome & better than any other on this planet is HTC.

Samsung's share has fallen not because of S4. Its not like Samsung creates only Galaxy S4's. Samsung is in business of other electronic devices, components, etc. People here are commenting as if shares have fallen because SGS4 has lesser sales. LOL..

it had to happen when they did nt change the design b/w S3 and S4, in a group of 5 frnds all samsung fans, and all s3 owners but i went with Xperia Z along with another frnd, and xtremely happy with it, may be i will never go back to samsung, if they do nt launch something to call me back
One selected Iphone 5 one went for Nokia Lumia(he is still waiting for 925 to be on local store) but he has decided , and one got HTC One
So this is how we left using samsung, if you do nt make something good users will go for the change, thats what happening to samsung, all devices exactly same even the most premium flagship? now immense price drop of S4 is helping samsung a little, for people who had low udget are buying but still, who have been S3 users , their are very few who bought S4 atleast i did nt see one

Well samsung made to much products that consumer tend to get confused what to get and not to buy there new product because they know there will be better like note 3. Plus there are many alternative product aside from samsung. Its not like after s4 you buy another phone lol.

I hope this wakes Samsung up because they are not living up to their hype. I hope next year they can focus on making less and better phones with new and better designs.

Samsung seems to be the main producer in phones an tvs,but they have got to improve there support for these products,as updates are always so slow from Samsung,but we neen Samsung to get the Smartphones improved,as the memory lose on the S4 was a big mistake made by them,but the updates for the S4 are late again by Samsung,if Nokia was with Android then Samsung would be struggling more,as Nokia use to best for support with phones
