Allen Brack as the new president of Blizzard Entertainment succeeding Mike Morhaime, who will remain a strategic advisor to the company. The company also announced the appointments of Chief Development Officer Ray Gresko and Blizzard Founder Allen Adham to Blizzard's executive leadership team.

"J. is an inspiring leader. He has shown unwavering commitment to our community, to innovation and creative excellence and he cares deeply about ensuring the very best of Blizzard culture will be protected." "I am also excited to have Allen Adham, Blizzard's founder, who rejoined the company two years ago and Ray Gresko, Blizzard's Chief Development Officer, join Blizzard's executive leadership team. I have known both Allen and Ray for more than 25 years and they are two of the most capable entrepreneurs in the game industry. They will help make certain that inspiration and creativity remains the focus of Blizzard," said Kotick.

Buy
Activision Blizzard price target raised to $90 from $81 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner raised his price target on Activision Blizzard to $90 and kept his Buy rating while also maintaining his FY18 EPS view of 2.66 and FY19 at $2.97. The analyst cites a positive critical reception from the company's released beta version of Black Ops 4, which helped to drive the share price up by 10%. Bonner sees a strong holiday shopping season for the videogame and its "battle royale" style of play that is similar to the very popular Fortnite format, adding that there is incremental revenue opportunity for Activision coming from the emergence of e-sports longer term.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. UBS UPGRADES IBM TO BUY: UBS analyst John Roy upgraded IBM (IBM) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $180 from $160. The market is pricing in a 2% revenue decline, which IBM can beat, Roy believes. Further, his sum-of-the-parts analysis suggests the market is applying virtually no value to IBM's hardware business, which the analyst thinks is "unrealistic." Roy sees a number of additional positives, including operating margin improvement, the Watson hype cycle bottoming this year, and a 4.4% dividend "providing a floor." Shares of IBM were higher by 2% in late morning trading. OPPENHEIMER UPGRADES GOPRO TO OUTPERFORM: Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz upgraded GoPro (GPRO) to Outperform from Perform, with a $9 price target. The analyst believes the company has done everything it can to position itself for success. With compelling features such as live streaming and gimbal-like image stabilization, Uerkwitz called its products are "compelling." This should be enhanced by targeted marketing and a vastly improved software editing suite, he contended. In late morning trading, GoPro shares were higher by 4%. PIPER JAFFRAY BOOSTS ACTIVISION BLIZZARD PRICE TARGET: Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Activision Blizzard (ATVI) to $88 from $84 saying he's increasingly confident in potential for earnings upside in 2018 from "Call of Duty Black Ops 4" and the accompanying Blackout battle royale mode. Both gamer and critical feedback on Blackout have been favorable, Olson said. He believes the Street has underestimated the potential for collective Call of Duty franchise revenue in 2018 and into 2019 and maintained an Overweight rating on shares. UBS CUTS LAM RESEARCH TO NEUTRAL: UBS analyst Tim Arcuri downgraded Lam Research (LRCX) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $170 from $220. Arcuri is "stepping to the sidelines" because he sees a big risk for the company in the first half of 2019 due to Lam Research's outsized exposure to Samsung. In late morning trading, shares of Lam Research were lower by almost 2%. DA DAVIDSON STARTS LULULEMON WITH A NEUTRAL: DA Davidson analyst John Morris initiated Lululemon (LULU) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $155, saying the "quality of its long-term growth rate is not as robust as it has been" even though its forward earnings multiple is near historical highs. The analyst noted that the company's "future growth has higher risk variables associated with the complexity of international expansion across multiple continents and fashion cycle headwinds as the athleisure trend ebbs." Despite the risks, the analyst points to the company's "strong management team and powerful brand equity" in justifying his neutral stance.
