Barclays sees Call of Duty upside, upgrades Activision to Overweight

Barclays analyst Ryan Gee upgraded Activision Blizzard to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $86 from $79. The analyst says his positive view is based on upside potential for Call of Duty digital revenue in 2019 from battle royale, as well as optimism for incremental product announcements at BlizzCon "fueling positive revisions" to consensus 2019 earnings estimates. Activision is one of the premier content creators across the entire media landscape and is well positioned to capitalize on secular themes in console/mobile online gaming, Gee tells investors in a research note. He also believes the company is best positioned to capture a "disproportionate share" of the significant player total addressable market in Asia.

Activision's new Call of Duty launched to strong reviews, says Piper Jaffray
Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Black ops III launched at midnight and has received strong early reviews, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that while investors have cited concerns around free to play battle royale title Fortnite taking market share, he believes the latest Call of Duty is "loudly staking its claim as the top shooter title." Olson thinks his sales estimate of 23.5M units for 2018 could prove conservative given the solid reviews for the game. He maintains an Overweight rating on Activision Blizzard with an $88 price target.

Call of Duty launch should be positive for Activision Blizzard, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren continues to recommend buying Activision Blizzard. The analyst expects the first weekend of Call of Duty sales to be a positive initial catalyst for the company. PC distribution and Blackout has potential to drive upside above his expectations, Wingren contended. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $90 price target on the shares.

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.
