After strong reviews, Piper says estimates for Battlefield 1 may be too low

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson noted that Electronic Arts' upcoming Battlefield 1 is getting strong early reviews, with an average "metacritic" rating of 87.5 that tops similar action shooters over the past year. Given the strong reviews, Olson said his estimate for 14M units of Battlefield 1 through FY17 may prove to be conservative. He keeps an Overweight rating and $89 price target on Electronic Arts shares.

Sept. NPD video game software sales fell 31%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson notes September NPD video game software sales fell 31% year-over-year amid a tough comparison with launches last year of Konami's Metal Gear Solid V and Nintendo's Super Mario Maker. Top sellers this year were Take-Two's (TTWO) NBA 2K17 and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17 and FIFA, Olson tells investors in a research note.

Outperform
Electronic Arts price target raised to $94 from $88 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz raised his price target for Electronic Arts to $94 from $88 as initial reviews of the core titles this calendar year give him confidence that the company will deliver what it promised, namely leaner development cost through a shared game engine, and a focus on game quality and portfolio strength. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
