Call of Duty additions should drive strong player engagement, says Baird

After Activision Blizzard hosted a live reveal of details about "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4," which confirmed rumors that the game will omit a traditional campaign, emphasize a retooled and expanded multiplayer mode, and include a new Battle Royale-style game mode, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said the return to traditional combat is likely a positive for core fans though the omission of a single-player campaign may disappoint some of them. Overall, he believes new additions should drive strong player engagement and monetization trends and he keeps an Outperform rating and $80 price target on the stock.

Activision Blizzard reported 'decent' Q1 results, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said that Activision Blizzard reported "decent" Q1 results, especially relative to the "amount of intra-quarter angst" over Fortnite competition. The company's Q2 revenue and EPS guidance of $1.35B and 31c, respectively, were below consensus, which he attributes to "typical management conservatism" along with a shift to catalog sales in a quarter with no significant new title launches. Sebastian has an Outperform rating and $80 price target on Activision Blizzard shares, which have reopened for trading following the company's official release of its earnings report.

Activision Q1 report bullish for Take-Two, Electronic Arts, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak believes there was some impact on Activision Blizzard (ATVI), notably on Call of Duty, in Q1 from Fortnite, though that impact was less than feared, which he sees as a bullish sign for Take-Two (TTWO) and Electronic Arts (EA). In a note entitled "Could Fortnite End Up Being a Good Thing?," Nowak adds that Fortnite's success speaks to how a first person shooter can be monetized on a mobile screen, which he calls "a meaningful opportunity" for the Call of Duty franchise. Nowak keeps an Overweight rating and $75 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

Activision Blizzard worst case did not materialize, says Jefferies
With the shares down 15% since March 9 on Fortnite fears, Activision Blizzard's beat and raise quarter shows the "worst-case scenario simply did not materialize," Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea tells investors in a research note. He sees a buying opportunity at current levels and "absolutely" wants to own the stock heading into the second half of 2018 and 2019. O'Shea expects "nice leverage" as new mobile game and advertising businesses scale. He keeps a Buy rating on Activision Blizzard with an $86 price target.

Morgan Stanley says eSports now a $13B 'call option' for Activision investors
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak raised his "bull case" valuation for Activision Blizzard's eSports franchise to $12.9B from $8.6B, noting that Overwatch League audiences are twice as big as he'd forecast, he expects the company to begin selling Call of Duty eSports franchises in early 2019 and new potential sports gambling laws may open another door to monetization. Calling eSports a "$13B call option" for Activision investors, Nowak maintains an Overweight rating and $75 price target on the stock while raising his bull case valuation to $100 per share.
