Data so far suggesting healthy holiday game sales, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted that French game maker Ubisoft (UBSFY) raised its revenue and margin guidance for the December quarter, which he views as a slight positive for video game industry sales momentum this holiday season. Data also point to solid sales for both Sony's (SNE) PS4 and Nintendo's (NTDOY) Switch, which are a driver of software as well as a key catalyst for Gamestop (GME), Sebastian added. Other publicly traded companies in the video game space include Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA), Take-Two (TTWO) and Microsoft (MSFT).

November NPD video game software sales rose 9%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson notes that November NPD video game software sales were up 9% year-over-year, driven by strong growth for Call of Duty: WWII and Assassin's Creed Origins, offsetting Star Wars Battlefront II, which was down versus the prior iteration. November is the second month of the December quarter for Activision (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO), with results looking most positive for Activision, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes EA is facing challenges with consumer frustration around Star Wars microtransactions while Take-Two will continue to rely on NBA 2K18 and GTA Online. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on all three names.

Electronic Arts downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Christopher Merwin removed Electronic Arts from the Conviction Buy List to reflect fewer near-term catalysts around in-game monetization of non-sports titles. The analyst maintains a Buy rating and $136 price target.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Juno Therapeutics (JUNO) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo, with analyst Jim Birchenough saying that while data for JCAR017 continue to support a potential best-in-class profile in aggressive lymphoma, the current valuation already reflects dominant market positioning over Gilead's (GILD) Yescarta. 2. General Dynamics (GD) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan, with analyst Seth Seifman saying Gulfstream questions are unlikely to be resolved in the near term. Demand for G500/600 is ok for now, but uncertainty about ultimate production levels and the pace of the learning curve mean the transition will remain a near term overhang, the analyst said. Seifman also downgraded Raytheon (RTN) to Neutral from Underweight. 3. Adobe (ADBE), Barracuda (CUDA), GoDaddy (GDDY), Fortinet (FTNT) and Check Point (CHKP) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight and CoStar Group (CSGP), Imperva (IMPV) and Monotype Imaging (TYPE) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Sterling Auty in conjunction with his 2018 annual outlook for Software Technology. The analyst does not expect the "exceptional performance" in Software during 2017 to repeat in 2018. 4. Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS, with analyst Carter Gould seeing a "challenging setup" for the shares after the Phase 1/2 SPK-8011 data in hemophilia A fell short of expectations. The analyst removed SPK-8011, or $29 per share, and early-stage pipeline value, or $12 per share, from his model. He finds it difficult to be more constructive on Spark shares in the near-term. 5. Electronic Arts (EA) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs by analyst Christopher Merwin to reflect fewer near-term catalysts around in-game monetization of non-sports titles.
