Activision Blizzard is 'best positioned' for growing eSports, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post keeps his Buy rating and $76 price target on Activision Blizzard (ATVI) as part of his broader research note on the growth of eSports to a $1B market next year, with $15B in total addressable market estimated longer term. Post cites Activision's established and "dominant" Overwatch League and Call of Duty gaming franchises generating over $100M in expected FY18 revenue. The analyst also notes that Take Two (TTWO) and Electronic Arts (EA) have eSports exposure with their respective NBA2K and Madden/FIFA tournament leagues, though he notes that currently the former is less exposed than the latter and offers less potential with its upcoming GTA and Red Dead blockbuster titles.

Activision Blizzard's Buy rating reiterated at Needham following channel checks
After speaking with a senior executive that specializes in physical distribution of video games, Needham analyst Laura Martin tells investors in a research note that Activision Blizzard (ATVI) physical game sales quotas for its key distributors are about flat year-over-year, even though many gamers download key shooter games at midnight the day of release, adding that demand for physical games from Electronic Arts (EA) is "more spread out," causing FIFA and Madden gamers to wait. Additionally, she says Fortnite negatively impacted store sales of all other titles for 2-3 weeks, "and is not back to normal," and that Activision's eSports strategy with Overload will make more money for the company, but that Electronic Arts' fan-focused eSports strategy will fuel higher game sales and longer life spans playing the games. Further, Martin says the senior executive believes EA's strategy of developing an annuity stream is "a great one," and believes Activision should adopt a similar strategy. Martin keeps a Buy rating and $80 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

Piper confident in Overweight rating on EA ahead of Fortnite-like release
Electronic Arts (EA) over the weekend announced that a Fortnite-like battle royale mode will be coming to Battlefield V, which ships in October, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. Additionally, EA confirmed that a subscription service for frontline titles is coming, albeit only on PC to start, the analyst adds. Olson sees "many potential catalysts" over the next six months for shares of Electronic Arts. He is confident in his Overweight rating and $148 price target on the shares. Electronic Arts trades at a discounted valuation to closest comp Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Olson points out.

Video games emerging as largest segment of media/entertainment, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said video games are emerging as the largest segment of media and entertainment globally. The analyst calls the segment a "must-own" group and tells investors to "take your pick" in either Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA), or Take-Two Interactive (TTWO). The analyst cited secular growth trends, including recurring digital revenues, millennial media consumption, mobile monetization, emerging esports, and intermediate-term development of advanced streaming services.

Snap price target lowered to $14 from $17 at Jefferies
Snap last night posted the lowest top line growth it has seen as a public company and user metrics "show more trouble ahead," Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Ongoing Growing Pains." The analyst continues to recommend Facebook (FB) in Social and is more positive on Twitter (TWTR) than Snap during the latter's redesign. He lowered his price target for Snap to $14 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

World Cup may be more meaningful driver for Twitter vs. 2014, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target on Twitter to $43 from $40 and maintained a Buy rating, telling investors in a research note that the impact of the World Cup could be a more meaningful driver for Twitter than in 2014, as the service is much improved since then and video was nascent on Twitter in 2014 but is now the largest source of monetization. He thinks the potential for Twitter to become a mass-market service in the future "still exists," which could lead to a significant revaluation if it happens.

In a research note to investors, Kelleher says Twitter has righted itself after several early missteps threatened its place in the social media world and that its role int he digital arena is "vital."

Twitter price target raised to $50 from $39 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target for Twitter to $50 from $39 saying the company's advertising momentum is strengthening, particularly among large marketers. The stock closed yesterday up 21c to $41.42. Industry conversations suggest the value for advertisers on Twitter is increasing, driven by double-digit daily active user growth for six straight quarters, improving product for both users and marketers, and better pricing amid declining cost per engagement, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. He projects Twitter's advertising revenue growth will accelerate in both Q2 and Q3, and believes his 21% growth projection for Q4 likely remains conservative. The analyst increased his second half of 2018 and 2019 estimates by around 3% across both revenue and EBITDA. Anmuth has "increasing confidence" that Twitter can grow ad revenue 20%-plus over the next few years and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
