Benchmark raises price targets on 'big three' game makers after E3
After attending E3 and hosting private meetings with executives for the "big three" video game makers, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey raised his target multiple on all three stocks by 20%, to 30x from 25x. Given the higher multiples, he raised his price target on Electronic Arts (EA) to $164 from $141, upped his target on Activision Blizzard to $93 from $80 and increased his target on Take Two Interactive (TTWO) to $156 from $135. Hickey maintains Buy ratings on all three video game makers' stocks.

May NPD video game software sales rose 15%, says Piper Jaffray
May NPD video game software sales were up 15% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) and Nintendo (NTDOY) launches of first-party titles, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst views May NPD data as less relevant for publishers since there were no major launches from Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) or Take-Two (TTWO). He maintains Overweight ratings on all three names.

Video game revenue could be ~100% digital by 2022, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson told investors in a research note that by 2022 there is a high likelihood that ~100% of video game revenue will be digital, adding that publisher margins could be dramatically higher if this is the case. Based on the implied share prices resulting from his 100% digital calendar year 2022 EPS scenario, Olson believes this would be a tailwind for Activision (ATVI), EA (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO) and that the average 3-yr share price CAGR for the video game group would be 17%. Olson maintained an Overweight rating on Activision, EA and Take-Two.

Activision, Electronic Arts targets raised on 'Gaming-as-a-Service' shift at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan see the video game industry on the cusp of a transformation in its business model towards "Gaming-as-a-Service" along with streaming and subscriptions, which he views as supportive of sustainable revenue growth, margin expansion and more stable and predictable free cash flow. Though still in its early days as an industry, esports has exhibited "promising signs," added Sheridan, who raised his price target on Activision Blizzard (ATVI) to $88 from $76 and his target on Electronic Arts (EA) to $176 from $146. He maintains Buy ratings on both game maker's stocks.

Electronic Arts price target raised to $170 from $135 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target on Electronic Arts to $170 and kept her Buy rating, citing the company's ongoing efforts in driving subscription revenues. Martin estimates those sales to reach about $240M in FY19 amid the prevailing trend among millenials to rent content rather than own it, adding that the model also reduces revenue volatility from game-makers' "hit" titles. The analyst also raised her FY19 EPS forecast to $5.00 from $4.85.

GameStop LBO at 'sizable premium' would see attractive return, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba says that after years of underperformance, Gamestop now trades at "by far the lowest valuation multiple" in his entire coverage universe. Given that shareholders have become "more vocal", the analyst notes that a potential leveraged buyout at $19 per share could be a "feasible alternative" that could generate attractive returns, though he also adds that the absence of a "clearly defined exit strategy" make the prospects of such deal questionable. Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $14 price target on Gamestop.

Further, the analyst notes he has yet to see clear signs that earnings can stabilize. Sigman reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares.

The analyst said the results were inline but were highlighted by continued strength in collectibles partially offset by anticipated weakness in new hardware, new software, pre-owned declines, and ongoing Tech Brands weakness. He said the current valuation is reflecting anticipated downside risk in the second half of the year. Sebastian maintained his Outperform rating and lowered his price target to $14 from $18 on GameStop shares.

After GameStop reported Q1 sales, EBITDA and EPS that missed his estimates, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey said he has "no confidence" in management and he believes the company is in "dire need of new leadership." The analyst, who thinks management is back end loading fiscal year performance expectations "while the hottest game in the world" is free-to-play, lowered his price target on GameStop shares to $10 from $12 and keeps a Sell rating on the stock.

Arya increased his price target on Nvidia shares to $275 from $251 and keeps a Buy rating on Nvidia, which he continues to identify as a top pick.

March NPD video game software sales fell 25%, says Piper Jaffray
March NPD video game software sales declined 25% year-over-year due to a tough compare with the launch of Nintendo's (NTDOY) Switch console a year ago and its highly successful launch title, The Legend of Zelda, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The top two titles in the month were Ubisoft's Far Cry 5 and Sony's (SNE) MLB: The Show, but combined, the two generated less revenue than last year's Zelda, Olson adds. He views this month's data as less relevant given the absence of a major launch from Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) or Take-Two (TTWO). However, Olson thinks the March NPD data is most positive for Activision and least favorable for EA, which he says faced difficult compares to the launch of Mass Affect: Andromeda the prior year. The analyst keeps Overweight ratings on Activision, EA and Take-Two.

New Nintendo games could accelerate demand for Nvidia GPUs, says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Vivek Arya said Nintendo's (NTDOY) unveiling of potentially "platform-defining titles" at the E3 show could drive more sustained demand for the Switch and could accelerate demand for Nvidia (NVDA) GPUs in 2019. Arya also noted that Nvidia's CEO created controversy at Computex last week, but the analyst thinks his comment about next-gen game cards being "a long time away" was misinterpreted. Arya thinks the next-gen Volta/Turing game cards are still on track for release in the second half of 2018, he tells investors.

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.

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Zynga to $5 after spending several days with management. The analyst now has increased visibility regarding the company's prospects for consistent growth and margin expansion in 2018. While 2018 will be another year where Zynga focuses on live services from existing games, the company is building a pipeline of new titles and has several potential growth drivers, including ad revenue in Words With Friends 2 and chat based games, Olson tells investors in a research note. He maintains an Overweight rating on Zynga.

He believes Zynga is "building a pipeline of new titles and has several potential growth drivers." The analyst maintains an Overweight rating on the shares with a $5 price target.

He contends the "swimmingly boring" deal should drive considerable EBITDA growth while leveraging Zynga's strength in established genres. Hickey also believes this and other potential M&A along with new game launches should help drive bookings growth and continued EBITDA acceleration.
