Take-Two price target raised to $51 from $45 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Take-Two Interactive to $51 saying he believes the next iteration of Red Dead will hit in the second half of 2017. The analyst notes that 23% of the 450 console owners his firm surveyed expected that they would buy the game, which would translate into 17M units. Olson keeps an Overweight rating on Take-Two.

June NPD video game software sales dropped 31%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says June NPD video game software sales were down 31% year-over-year given a tough comparison from last year's launch of Batman Arkham Knight. The analyst, however, views the monthly data as positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO). June quarter NPD revenue outpaced expectations for the three publishers, Olson tells investors in a research note. He keeps Overweight ratings on the three along with GameStop (GME).

July NPD video game software sales dropped 13%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson notes that July NPD video game software sales were down 13% year-over-year. The analyst attributes the decline to a difficult comparison with sell-through of Batman Arkham Knight the prior year and a bunch of new releases during July 20. Olson views the data as a "slight positive" for GameStop's (GME) July quarter and "irrelevant" for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO). The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on all four names.

August NPD video game software sales rose 1%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says August NPD video game software sales were up 1% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) publishing No Man's Sky and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17. The data are most positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), which continued to benefit from sell-through of incremental title Overwatch, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the monthly numbers are largely irrelevant for Take-Two (TTWO), since NBA 2K17 is due out in September, and GameStop (GME), since the company announced October quarter guidance at the end of August.
