Stephens a buyer of Electronic Arts shares on Star Wars headline weakness
Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen noted that Kotaku reported that Electronic Arts (EA) has canceled its "Star Wars" open world game, which it will replace with a smaller "Star Wars" game. While he acknowledges the headlines will not help sentiment and will renew questions about the company's "Star Wars" license, Cohen does not view the news as a material negative and would be a buyer of EA shares on any weakness related to the report. Cohen, who also contends that the uncertainty around the Destiny franchise, which Activision Blizzard (ATVI) is returning to Bungie, could have a positive impact the release of EA's Anthem, keeps an Overweight rating and $125 price target on Electronic Arts shares.

Activision Blizzard price target lowered to $63 from $88 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Brandon Ross lowered his price target on Activision Blizzard to $63 and also reduced his FY19 EPS view to $2.72 from $3.20 to reflect the retreat in consensus estimates after the company's "revealed weakness" in its Q3 earnings call. The analyst also points to the "uncertainty around Blizzard's release schedule and the severance of a deal with Bungie which meant the loss of the Destiny franchise". Longer term, Ross keeps his Buy rating on the stock and expects Activision Blizzard to re-accelerate growth next year as the management optimizes its cost structure while also pursuing a "large mobile opportunity", adding that its 2020 catalysts include Overwatch expansion and Diablo 4 launch.

Video game stocks have potential to rebound in 2019, says Piper Jaffray
Video game publishers have the potential to rebound in 2019 following a recent "rough patch" that included the rise of Fortnite, an overcrowded second half of 2018 title slate, and a broader market downdraft that weighed on shares, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst is "particularly confident" in Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) in 2019, his number one and two picks in the space. However, he believes Activision Blizzard (ATVI), his number three pick, "could lag due to a relatively weak title slate." Olson's video game publisher seasonality analysis shows a consistent pattern of outperformance from the beginning of March through the end of June for the video game stocks. Said differently, in the next six-to-eight weeks we will enter a period that has historically been favorable for video game publisher shares, Olson writes. He maintains an Overweight rating on all three names.

Jefferies keeps Activision Blizzard as top pick despite target cut to $60
Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea lowered his price target for Activision Blizzard to $60 from $85 but says the stock remains a top pick with a Buy rating. It now appears Blizzard won't launch a major game in 2019, and Destiny 3 is no longer coming in 2020, O'Shea tells investors in a research note partially titled "Hitting the Reset Button." As such, the analyst reduced his 2019 and 2020 earnings per share estimates by 14% and 8%, respectively. However, it is likely that Activision has a game to "plug the hole" left by Destiny, with Blizzard potentially having two games for 2020, says the analyst. Further, he believes all of this news fully priced into the stock. O'Shea views the current 14.6 times multiple as an attractive entry point and keeps a Buy rating on Activision Blizzard.
