Oct. NPD video game software sales rose 11%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says October NPD video game software sales were up 11% year-over-year due to strong results from incremental launch titles, including Electronic Arts' (EA) Battlefield 1 as well as Take Two's (TTWO) Mafia III, among others. The analyst, however, views the October NPD results as "largely irrelevant" since Activision Blizzard (ATVI), EA and Take-Two already announced December quarter guidance and GameStop (GME) recently announced preliminary October quarter results. He keeps Overweight ratings on all four names.

Buy
Activision Call of Duty price mix should offset unit declines, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald attributes the 17% pullback in Activision Blizzard (ATVI) from its 52-week high in October to fears that Call of Duty is underperforming. He points to the game underperforming at GameStop (GME) and the fact that Activision did not issue a post-launch press release around COD performance for the first time since 2008 as potential signs of softness. However, Fitzgerald thinks the unit declines may be partially offset by higher uptake of the $80 premium version of the game and notes that Overwatch and WoW have both had engagement spikes. The analyst expressed confidence in his 2017 EPS estimates for Activision and maintains his Buy rating and $55 price target on the stock.

Activision Blizzard weakness would be buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian lowered his estimates on Activision Blizzard to reflect holiday field checks, which show improving retail sales for Call of Duty at discount prices but not enough to fill the Q4 gap. The shortfall will be partially made up by digital and micro-transactions, but this could lead to a potential negative carry-over for 2017 guidance, said Sebastian, who maintained his Outperform rating and lowered his price target to $47 from $50 on Activision Blizzard shares.

November NPD video game software sales dropped 22%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says November NPD video game software sales were down 22% year-over-year due to a difficult compare with launches last year of Call of Duty: Black Ops III from Activision (ATVI) and Fallout 4 from Bethesda. This year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was among the top titles for the month but "down significantly" relative to the prior iteration, Olson tells investors in a research note. Other top titles for this November included Electronic Arts' (EA) Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, as well as Nintendo's (NTODY) pair of 3DS Pokemon titles Sun and Moon, the analyst points out. He maintains Overweight ratings on Activision, Electronic Arts and Take-Two (TTWO) and a Neutral rating on GameStop (GME).

EA's confirmation of Mass Effect launch a slight positive, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson believes that Electronic Arts subsidiary BioWare's announcement of a March 21 launch for Mass Effect: Andromeda is a slight positive for the stock, as the game's release will straddle the FY17 and FY18 fiscal years, creating potential upside for FY17 and boosting a seasonally slow Q1 of FY18. Olsen reiterated his Overweight rating and $91 price target on the stock.

EA's Mass Effect release timing could mean mixed holiday sales, says Baird
Electronic Arts subsidiary BioWare announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda will launch on March 21, which could signal a "mixed holiday sales environment" for EA's current slate of titles, said Baird analyst Colin Sebastian. He maintained his Outperform rating and $91 price target, however, due to "solid sales" of EA Sports titles and Battlefield 1, as well as ramping digital sales from the recent Battlefield release.

GameStop gets another tailwind from Nintendo 'Switch' launch, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted Nintendo (NTDOY) unveiled its "Switch" home/portable hybrid device, revealing it will use physical cartridges for its games, which he sees as a potential positive for retailers like GameStop (GME). While Sebastian expects fairly modest unit sales for Nintendo next year, he added that new hardware launches are important revenue drivers for GameStop's video game business. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating and $40 price target on GameStop shares.

Nintendo could be worth $320M/year for NVIDIA, says Jefferies

The analyst estimates the win to be a $200M-$320M annual opportunity for NVIDIA near term. Lipacis sees 11c-16c of potential earnings per share upside in 2017 and reiterates a Buy rating on NVIDIA.

Needham recommends buying Apple on Pokemon Go, Samsung upside
Following Apple's (AAPL) Q4 results, Needham analyst Laura Martin notes that iPhone revenue rose driven in part by Samsung's (SSNLF) Galaxy Note 7 imploding in September and estimates $10B-$20B of brand value transfers to Apple during the next adoption cycle owing to Samsung's poor handling of the replacement, recall and ultimate discontinuation of the Note 7. Of the company's extra services revenue quarter over quarter, the analyst's channel checks indicate that Niantic and Nintendo's (NTDOY) Pokemon Go represented much of the growth. Martin reiterates a Strong Buy and $150 price target on Apple's shares.

Red Dead 2 timing in-line with expectations, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson noted that Take-Two confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will ship in Fall 2017 following two days of hinting at an announcement. The timing is in-line with his expectations, said Olson, who added that 23% of the 450 console owners surveyed by the firm said they expect to buy the game, which he estimates would translate to about 17M units sold. Olson keeps an Overweight rating and $51 price target on Take-Two shares.

Take-Two upcoming game a 'reason to own the shares,' says Stifel
Stifel analyst Drew Crum says that Take Two's upcoming "Red Dead Redemption 2" game is "an event-driven catalyst and a reason to own the shares." The analyst is also generally upbeat on the company's other games and says that its large cash position enable it to benefit from industry consolidation. He raises his price target on the shares to $59 from $52 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
