Samsung’s Q2 2013 shows investors value analysis over record profit

Though Samsung's financial quarter announcements this week showed the company to be kicking up a storm (metaphorically, of course), with the Galaxy S 4 family of devices on the market today, shares fell internationally at word that analysis projections were not met.
