Blizzard says 'multiple teams' working on different 'Diablo' projects

In a blog post ahead of BlizzCon 2018, Activision Blizzard unit Blizzard said that it currently has "multiple teams" working on different "Diablo" projects. "We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that "good things come to those who wait," but evil things often take longer," the company said. "We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror."

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. BARCLAYS BOOSTS ACTIVISION TO OVERWEIGHT: Barclays analyst Ryan Gee upgraded Activision Blizzard (ATVI) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $86 from $79. The analyst said 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 added. In late morning trading, Activision Blizzard shares were lower by over 4%. EVERCORE UPGRADES MCDONALD'S TO OUTPERFORM: Evercore ISI analyst Matt McGinley upgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Outperform from In Line given lowered expectations on comp, a pullback in valuation relative to last year, and due to the more defensive nature of the business model. For the industry, the analyst believes that economies of scale are of increasing importance amid labor inflation, remodel investment, and a higher promotional cadence. This will require greater sophistication to plan, execute, and evolve, and as a result, he expects to see more M&A and marginal capacity exit. LOOP CUTS TAPESTRY TO HOLD: Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine downgraded Tapestry (TPR), the company formerly known as Coach, to Hold from Buy and lowered her price target for the shares to $45 from $59. Tapestry's overall competitive positioning is less attractive into the holiday season, Champine believes. The analyst still expects the long-term cost synergies from the Kate Spade acquisition to be substantial, but she's concerned that "less-compelling fashion could yield disappointing holiday results." In late morning trading, Tapestry shares were lower by 2.3%. WEDBUSH UPGRADES LULULEMON TO OUTPERFORM: Wedbush analyst Jen Redding upgraded Lululemon (LULU) to Outperform from Neutral, with a $176 price target. The analyst said she has long viewed Lululemon as an "impressive" growth story, with a best-in-class retail leadership team at the helm, and continues to see the company's cutting-edge data analytics and technology platforms on the forefront of wins in the years to come. Redding also sees fundamentals as compelling, including a strong e-commerce segment with meaningful growth ahead, and promising international expansion opportunities. Insights across her suite of proprietary Wedbush Data Analytics Models give her confidence in her above consensus quarterly forecast. Redding attributes the recent pullback in share price as owing to a selloff in the market.

Activision Blizzard price target raised to $85 from $77 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton raised his price target on Activision Blizzard to $85 and kept his Buy rating, saying he is "very comfortable" with his expectations of 15% annualized earnings growth through 2020. The analyst cites a "very positive" Metacritic score of 87 for the company's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 videogame - up from 81 from the prior installment - and the expected benefit from its Battle Royale playmode. Thornton also notes that the upcoming BlizzCon on November 12th could produce a positive catalyst for Activision shares if the company unveils a new Diablo mobile game.

Baird says 'Call of Duty' player count, hours played more signs of solid start
After Activision Blizzard disclosed the launch of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" broke current-gen console records for total player count and hours played, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said he viewed these early engagement statistics as another sign of a strong launch. While the company also said the game had over $500M in worldwide sell-through, which is roughly flat year-over-year, Sebastian noted the timing of the release as well as the exclusion of a single-player mode may slightly skew the comparison. The analyst, who said he remains confident in his "Call of Duty" unit sales estimates, keeps an Outperform rating and $85 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

Activision's CoD launch to have additional 3 weeks of sales, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson said Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 sold-through over $500M in its first three days, which was in line with his expectations as he sees 23.5M units sold for the full year, up from an estimated low-20M in 2017, Olson tells investors in a research note. Though the launch was pulled forward from its historical November launch, which means early sales of this year's version will not benefit from the upcoming holiday season as much as in previous years, but the timing will give the game an additional three weeks of sales. Strong sales could bolster digital with season pass sales now the only means to buy DLC. The analyst maintains an Overweight rating and $88 price target on Activision shares.
