Microsoft Project xCloud mostly positive for game publishers, says Baird
After Microsoft (MSFT) announced details of its game-streaming initiative, Project xCloud, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said he does not expect beta user trials until 2019, with a full launch likely 1-2 years later. The analyst, who sees the news as mostly positive for game publishers Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO), believes that streaming represents an opportunity to convert a portion of the remaining casual gamer market by providing console-quality full streaming games with the cross-platform social features of current consoles. Baird has Outperform ratings on all three game publishers mentioned.

Accounting rule change may provide tailwind for video game companies, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Doug Creutz noted the shift from ASC 605 to 606 this year, which he said has received little attention in the video game sector. However, his analysis is suggesting there may have been some impact on reported bookings for both Take-Two (TTWO) and Electronic Arts (EA) and that they could receive what he would call a not-insignificant tailwind in Q1. Creutz has a Market Perform rating and $96 price target on Take-Two and a Market Perform rating and $111 price target on Electronic Arts shares.

GameStop price target raised to $16 from $14 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba raised his price target on GameStop to $16 and kept his Hold rating. The analyst notes that while the latest worse-than-expected quarter offered no incremental positives fundamentally, his new price target reflects the increasing possibility that the company will be acquired. Chukumba adds that he is "somewhat encouraged" by the management's maintained FY18 guidance.

Walmart merchandise news negative for GameStop, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle notes that Walmart (WMT) announced that it is rolling out a dedicated section of pop culture merchandise to over 3,500 stores starting the week of October 15th, which will include an exclusive relationship with Loot Crate and merchandise from Funko (FNKO), McFarlane Toys and CultureFly. This follows a successful partnership with Target (TGT) and Funko last Holiday, he adds. The analyst views this as a negative for GameStop (GME) given that collectibles are the only category that is consistently growing for the company. Furthermore, Nagle was already concerned over how much collectibles distribution could move into mass channels, as collectibles already show signs of deceleration. Nagle reiterates an Underperform rating and $10 price target on GameStop shares.

Turtle Beach valuation now 'especially attractive', says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte kept his Buy rating and $38 price target on Turtle Beach (HEAR), saying the current valuation on the stock at 12.9-times free cash flow yield based on his expected 2020 forecasts makes the shares "especially attractive". The analyst notes that the company's Q3 pre-announcement affirmed his view of Turtle Beach being "incredibly well positioned to leverage the continued success of the battle royale gaming format", while commentary from Epic Games, NPD, and GameStop (GME) has also indicated that Fortnite demand remains very strong.

DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte kept his Buy rating and $58 price target on Logitech ahead of its Q3 results next Monday, saying that he sees "multiple favorable data points indicating the continued strength of gaming accessories". The analyst recommends that investors purchase shares going into the company's earnings, as "recent data and comments from GameStop (GME), NPD, and Turtle Beach (HEAR) suggest continued robust demand for Fortnite gameplay "fueling further growth in headsets".

Nintendo upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA
CLSA analyst Rolf Edelman upgraded Nintendo to Buy while lowering his price target for the shares to 44,000 yen from 54,000 yen. While the analyst reduced his estimates to reflect a slowdown in sales momentum for Switch, he says current valuation levels have not been seen "since the dark days for Nintendo." The company's first-party title releases in each of the last three months of the year should improve momentum and drive a rerating in the shares, Edelman tells investors in a research note.

Nvidia can selloff near-term on graphics commentary, says Citi
Citi analyst Atif Malik says his recent supply chain checks indicate discrete graphics gaming demand is expected to remain sluggish thru the September quarter due to a "sharp decline" in mining related demand on falling cryptocurrency prices, channel distributors and partners waiting for Nvidia's (NVDA) new Turing gaming card launch in the October quarter, and weak gaming console sales at Microsoft (MSFT) offset by the Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch. The analyst lowered his July and October quarter estimates for Nvidia to bring them in-line with consensus. He thinks the stock can selloff in the near-term on weaker than expected graphics commentary from TSMC (TSM), who reports on July 19, and AMD (AMD), who reports on July 25. Malik, however, keeps a Buy rating on Nvidia with a $300 price target. He believes his long-term thesis on the shares remains intact.

GameStop strong hardware sales offset pre-owned and software decline, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian kept his Outperform rating and $14 price target on GameStop (GME) after its "in-line" Q2 results, where "strong new hardware sales and improving Tech Brands segment profitability" offset the declines in the pre-owned and software segments. The analyst adds that the revenue beat was driven by the ongoing demand for Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch and Xbox One consoles, while noting that the comps decline of -0.5% was better than the expected -3.7% decrease.
