Electronic Arts price target lowered to $116 from $140 at SunTrust

SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton lowered his price target on Electronic Arts to $116 ahead of its Q2 earnings next week, also lowering his FY19 EPS view to $4.69 from $4.75 and FY20 to $5.23 from $5.31. The analyst cites FX headwinds and more conservative outlook for the company's FIFA and Battlefield videogame sales, adding that the buy-side sentiment on the stock is also more negative than the sell-side amid execution concerns for the company. Longer term, Thornton keeps his Buy rating on Electronic Arts to reflect its attractive 16.9-times forward free cash flow multiple.

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.

September NPD video game software sales dropped 8%, says Piper Jaffray
Overall September NPD video game software sales were down 8% year-over-year despite launches of strong franchises, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The top title for Sept. was Sony's (SNE) Spiderman followed by Take-Two's (TTWO) NBA 2K19, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed and Electronic Arts' (EA) FIFA 19, the analyst points out. Olson views the Sept. NPD data as less relevant for Activision Blizzard (ATVI) given his expectation for greater than 75% of its revenue coming from digital sources. He maintains Overweight ratings on Activision, Electronic Arts and Take-Two.

Teen survey positive for console publisher group, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's 36th semi-annual survey of 8,600 teens shows that video game console ownership was up, with 83% claiming to own a current gen console or expecting to buy one. Spending on video games also increased, from 13% of male teen budgets in spring 2018 to 14% currently, Olson tells investors in a research note. Further, he points out that a growing number of teens watch others play games via YouTube and Twitch, while the number of teens who play mobile games fell from the spring survey. The analyst views the data as positive for the console publisher group Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO), and neutral for mobile game companies Zynga (ZNGA) and Glu Mobile (GLUU).

Morgan Stanley says publishers in 'win-win' situation as consoles move to cloud
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak sees changes coming to the $53B global console gaming market as the business model transitions toward subscription pricing and cloud delivery. The transition will lead to 2% CAGR console gaming revenue growth from 2017-2025, but gross profit growth accelerating to 6%, Nowak estimates. He believes game publishers such as Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO) will likely need to partner and bundle content to drive material consumer adoption, but he sees them being in a "win-win" position, because even if the console makers or other aggregators drive the cloud transition, the leading publishers can still benefit from expansion in the player base, Nowak tells investors. While console players Microsoft (MSFT) and Sony (SNE) have the most at risk from these changes, they are also positioned best to build and grow game subscription services, Nowak added.
