Stifel slightly more negative after tracking consumer interest for video games
Citing his monthly analysis tracking consumer interest for video games on various web sites and services, Stifel analyst Drew Crum says he slightly more negative. Regarding Activision Blizzard (ATVI), the analyst notes that lower results for Call of Duty more than offset healthy sales of Sekiro, while for Electronic Arts (EA) Apex Legends engagement metrics were mixed, though overall momentum appeared to slow month over month. Regarding Take-Two (TTWO), Red Dead Redemption 2 drove year over year increases for the company, but experienced sequential declines following a price cut in February, he contended.

Piper's 'TwitchAdviser' Q1 analysis most positive for Electronic Arts
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's Q1 "TwitchAdviser," an analysis of video game viewing data, is most favorable for Electronic Arts (EA), with additional positive takeaways for Take-Two (TTWO) and Activision Blizzard (ATVI). Electronic Arts' Apex Legends "made the biggest splash," debuting in February at the top of the chart, and driving the company's Twitch viewership up 281% quarter-over-quarter, Olson tells investors in a research note. Take-Two viewing increased 38% quarter-over-quarter while Activision viewership fell 22%, adds the analyst. Further, while Fortnite remains at the top of the chart for the March quarter, the game's "stranglehold on the top spot may be loosening," he claims. Olson keeps Overweight ratings on all three stocks.

Sony 'PS5' details largely in line with expectations, says Baird
After Sony (SNE) shared details around its upcoming next-generation game console, widely referred to as the "PlayStation 5," Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said the details - including plans for significant GPU and CPU upgrades and the inclusion of a solid state hard drive - are largely in line with his expectations and support his view that the next generation of consoles should be "a major catalyst" for software sales in 2020-2021 and beyond. Sony's announcement that the next-gen console will include a physical disc drive is a potential positive for GameStop's (GME) used and pre-owned console software segments, added Sebastian. Video game software makers include Electronic Arts (EA), Take-Two (TTWO) and Activision Blizzard (ATVI).

EA's latest Star Wars game has upside potential, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen noted that Electronic Arts plans to reveal its latest Star Wars game, "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order," on April 13. He believes Respawn is "finally" making the type of single-player, story-driven Star Wars game that fans have been waiting for and thinks the game has the potential to sell double-digit million units if the studio "can execute on its vision, without falling victim to some of EA's prior missteps." Cohen, who sees the game having room for upside to consensus expectations, keeps an Overweight rating and $120 price target on EA shares.

EA's Jedi looks like smaller, less profitable title, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea believes Electronic Arts' holiday title Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order "looks like a smaller, less profitable title." While the game has a positive online sentiment score of 66, Jedi was developed using Unreal Engine, meaning Electronic Arts has to pay a 5% revenue share to Fortnite's developer Epic, O'Shea tells investors in a research note. This is the second straight EA game not built using the company's Frostbite engine, the analyst points out. If more EA studios eschew Frostbite going forward, it could pressure the company's profitability, he says. O'Shea keeps a Hold rating on Electronic Arts with a $95 price target.

GameStop outlooks 'warrant ongoing caution,' says Baird
GameStop reported Q4 results below expectations, driven by weakness in pre-owned revenue and margins consistent with the holiday sales report, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note titled "Turnaround Plan Still Under Wraps; Lowering Estimates." Despite a "deep value opportunity" in the shares, GameStop's "cloudy" near-term and longer-term outlooks "warrant ongoing caution," adds the analyst. He lowered his price target for the shares to $11 from $12 and keeps a Neutral rating on the name. Sebastian, however, is encouraged by GameStop's "more flexible" capital allocation strategy and expected focus of the new CEO on operational efficiency.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with analyst Matthew Harrigan citing the stock's sensitivity to any market pullback, "investor angst" regarding what he calls "increasingly credible" competition from the Disney+ (DIS) streaming service and his concerns that his model for Netflix's long-term global membership growth may be optimistic given the rising competition. 2. GameStop (GME) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Curtis Nagle citing expectations for a deterioration in fundamentals. 3. Exxon Mobil (XOM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Jason Gabelman saying the company is shifting to a counter-cyclical investment stage, which may pay dividends long-term but he does not believe investors are willing to wait for results. 4. Etsy (ETSY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Marvin Fong saying the current stock price embeds a "fair amount of future improvement," which yields a risk/reward that is balanced. 5. National Beverage (FIZZ) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Guggenheim with analyst Laurent Grandet saying he "drastically reduced" his LaCroix sales growth expectations and cut his gross margin and EPS estimates accordingly following the company's quarterly report.

BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle downgraded GameStop to Underperform from Neutral and lowered its price target to $9 from $12 based on expectations for a deterioration in fundamentals. Nagle said structural headwinds appear to be worsening, the turnaround opportunity is diminishing without permanent leadership and declining earnings, and valuation is being pressured after the company terminated efforts to sell the company in January.

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.

Sony appeared to be video game hardware winner on Black Friday, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter notes that each of the four game retailers he tracked, namely Best Buy (BBY), GameStop (GME), Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) offered the Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Bundle that included a slim PS4 with a 1TB hard drive and Sony's (SNE) Marvel's Spider-Man for $199.99, as well as the Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox One S Minecraft Creators Bundle that included an Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, a Minecraft full game download, the Starter Pack, the Creators Pack, and 1,000 Minecoins for $199.99. Nintendo's (NTDOY) primary hardware offering was less compelling given that it was priced at the console's standard MSRP, he adds. The only sell-out that the analyst saw over Black Friday was the primary PS4 deal. Pachter expects the Black Friday deals to eventually translate into permanent price cuts for the base PS4 and Xbox One, possibly by this Christmas.

Take-Two potential with Borderlands 3 may be overlooked, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen said it is widely expected that Gearbox Software will reveal Borderlands 3 when the company present at PAX East in Boston on Thursday. While he believes Red Dead Online will likely drive Take-Two's near-term stock performance, Cohen also thinks the potential of Borderlands 3 may be overlooked by some investors. While there has been some fan backlash to the exclusive strategy for the Epic Games Store, Cohen also said there is a strong monetary incentive to launch Borderlands 3 exclusively on Epic. He maintains an Overweight rating and $110 price target on Take-Two shares.
