Apex Legends survey positive for Electronic Arts, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton kept his Buy rating and $107 price target on Electronic Arts, saying his latest survey data contained positive findings for Apex Legends in relation to user spending intentions and spending per player. The analyst also maintains that the company's initial FY20 guidance will be "more conservative", even though his price target is "very comfortable" as it implies a forward earnings multiple of 21.5-times - in-line with the 5-year average for the stock. Thornton further points to Electronic Arts' next release of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on April 13th and the next SuperData Apex estimate on April 20th as potential catalysts.

Piper survey of 8,000 teens positive for Ulta, Chipotle, Amazon and Netflix
Piper Jaffray analysts Erinn Murphy, Michael Olson and Nicole Miller Regan say their firm's 37th semi-annual survey of 8,000 teens is more positive for Ulta Beauty (ULTA), VF Corp. (VFC), Lululemon (LULU), Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Electronic Arts (EA). The survey results were most cautious for department stores, mid-priced accessories, Ralph Lauren (RL) and eBay (EBAY), the analysts tell investors in a research note. Broadly speaking, the casualization of fashion remains strong, footwear is gaining wallet share, and beauty "remains dynamic" with several indie brands hitting new highs in the survey, say the analysts. They note that Ulta surpassed Sephora as the preferred beauty destination.

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.

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.

MongoDB partnership with Google a positive development, says William Blair
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) announced yesterday at its annual Cloud Next developer conference a slew of partnerships with open source database and analytics vendors, including MongoDB (MDB), William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note. Instead of competing with these vendors, like its main rival Amazon Web Services (AMZN) has generally chosen to do, Google is deepening integrations with these open source solutions in an effort to simplify customer adoption of them through the Google Cloud Platform, says Ader. He believes that although Google Cloud Platform is a "distant third" in market share to AWS and Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure, the news is a positive development for MongoDB "that could begin to bring more attention to and turn the tide against open source strip mining." Ader reiterates an Outperform rating on MongoDB shares.

Horan maintains an Outperform rating and $127 price target.

Cleveland Research says Okta commentary 'favorable' at Oktane19
Cleveland Research does not formally cover or have an investment opinion in Okta, but Cleveland analyst Ben Bollin noted that partner commentary from Oktane19, Okta's annual partner conference, was "positive on the company's growth trajectory and competitive position," and that it seems Okta is winning at the expense of legacy vendors such as Oracle (ORCL). Bollin also noted that Microsoft (MSFT) seems to be Okta's main competitive threat in identity & access management. In midday trading, shares of Okta are higher by 5.2% to $92.13.

Avaya could fetch up to $25 from PE buyer, says BWS Financial
Additional news reports about Avaya (AVYA) possibly going private since an initial Reuters report build some credibility about the news, said BWS Financial analyst Hamed Khorsand, who believes Avaya could fetch as much as $25 from a private equity buyer using fiscal 2019 estimates and could be worth as much $30 assuming no improvement in the business for fiscal 2020. He thinks greater synergies could be extracted by a strategic buyer and continues to believe Microsoft (MSFT) would be the best fit as an acquirer. Khorsand keeps a Buy rating and $32 price target on Avaya shares.

Google's Stadia announcement potentially disruptive, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren attended Google's (GOOG; GOOGL) keynote at Game Developer's Conference, where it announced a new video game streaming service, new gaming hardware, and intentions to make games. The analyst believes the announcement has potential to be disruptive if Google executes well on the service, and sees it as mostly positive for video game publishers in the near and long term as it increases global access, removes value added by hardware, and increases value of key content. Google's ambitions to make games join other distributors like Sony (SNE), Microsoft (MSFT), and Amazon (AMZN), and could provide some incremental competition for time in the medium to long term, Wingren contends.

Jefferies downgrades Sony on lower growth, increasing uncertainty
Jefferies analyst Atul Goyal downgraded Sony to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $50.70 from $77.62. Sony's inability to exit the Smartphone business has resulted in continued losses while a peak of game profits and increasing uncertainty imply "pedestrian profit growth" over the next two years, Goyal tells investors in a research note. He believes the stock's upside/downside ratio appears balanced at current levels.

Buckingham Neutral on Electronic Arts, but remains opportunistic on weakness
Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan maintained a Neutral rating on Electronic Arts with a $103 price target. The analyst said, however, that he remains "opportunistic on any weakness during market sell-offs" due to Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) Stadia initiative. Harrigan said that EA will be "wary of the economics that Google is likely to extend in any sharing model" and noted that EA has to be mindful of existing console partners Microsoft (MSFT) and Sony (SNE).

Chicken Soup may now be one of hottest small properties in media, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos said Chicken Soup for the Soul (CSSE) "shocked" by announcing a joint venture with Sony (SNE) and "may have just become one of the hottest small properties in the media landscape" in the process. Kurnos believes that the new Crackle Plus will top Pluto TV from a content, monthly average user and total registered user standpoint, noting that Pluto was just sold to Viacom (VIAB) for $340M. Following the JV announcement, the analyst raised his price target on Chicken Soup shares to $18 from $16 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
