Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J.

Activision Blizzard pullback offers favorable entry point, says Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner kept his Buy rating and $81 price target on Activision Blizzard, saying the recent pullback in the stock price related to the success of competitor's "Fortnite" shooting game offers a favorable entry point for investors. Bonner states that the management has acknowledged some "near-term" market share impact, but also believes that "Fortnite" success has attracted new entrants to the shooter format of videogaming. The analyst also expects Activision to see some benefits in its latest installment of "Call of Duty" and also begin to feature the popular "battle royale" format in its upcoming titles.

Piper Jaffray says Call of Duty, RDR2 'most anticipated' games pre-holiday
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says that a survey of more than 300 gamers suggests Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Take Two's (TTWO) Red Dead Redemption 2 are most anticipated games for pre-holiday 2018, and tells investors in a research note that an analysis of YouTube trailer likes-to-dislikes shows that RDR2 is, by far, the most "liked" of upcoming titles. While Olson is Overweight on all three, he ranks them as follows for remainder of 201 based on most potential for upside through the second half of calendar 2018: 1) Take Two, 2) Activision Blizzard, 3) Electronic Arts (EA).

Sony downgraded to Neutral on slowing dual-cam adoption at JPMorgan
As previously reported, JPMorgan downgraded Sony (SNE) to Neutral from Overweight, citing slowing adoption of dual-cams. The firm notes that reports indicate Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 6.05" LCD model will not have a dual-cam feature, which it sees presenting a material downside risk in dual-camera adoption in the second half of 2018.

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.

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.
