Activision Blizzard can add $1B of revenue by 2020, says Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson sees a path to Activision Blizzard potentially generating greater than $1B of incremental revenue by 2020 through extensions of existing as well as new offerings. The analyst lists advertising in King games, eSports and consumer products/content as the primary categories of incremental growth. He raised his price target for Activision shares to $51 from $46 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Piper Jaffray bullish on GameStop ahead of quarterly results
With GameStop (GME) scheduled to report results next week, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson sees potential for slight July quarter upside driven by May launches of Sony's (SNE) Uncharted 4 and Activision's (ATVI) Overwatch. Further, the analyst expects largely unchanged fiscal year guide, and anticipates improving software growth in the second half of the year, driven by easier comps and a next-generation console footprint that he believes is over 60M units. Olson reiterates an Overweight rating and $41 price target on GameStop's shares.

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.

Activision Blizzard initiated with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak initiated Activision Blizzard with an Overweight and a $56 price target. The analyst is bullish on the digital gaming shift away from "units sold" to a business model based on users, engagement, and digital monetization. He sees digital in-game offerings resulting in recurring and growth user bases, increased per-game engagement, and further monetization opportunities. Nowak is bullish on the King mobile ad opportunity and expects it to add approximately $500M and 34c to earnings by 2018.
