Electronic Arts initiated with a Buy at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Andrew Marok last night initiated coverage of Electronic Arts (EA) with a Buy rating and $120 price target. The analyst also started Activision Blizzard (ATVI) with a Neutral rating. Electronic Arts is well positioned to capitalize on trends in the broader gaming industry, Marok tells investors in a research note. The company's subscription service is scaling well and is expanding to new platforms, adds the analyst. Further, he views Apex Legends as a new growth driver for EA.

Neutral
Activision Blizzard initiated with a Neutral at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Andrew Marok last night initiated coverage of Activision Blizzard with a Neutral rating and $49 price target. The company's near-term release roadmap does not appear to provide many opportunities for "notable upside," especially at Blizzard, Marok tells investors in a research note. Outside of "dependable releases" such as the yearly Call of Duty title and semi-annual World of Warcraft expansion, Activision's frontline product pipeline is at a "low point," says the analyst. As such, he sees limited near-term catalysts for the shares.

Buy
AB InBev upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus
As previously reported, Argus analyst John Eade upgraded AB InBev to Buy with a price target of $92. The analyst notes that the stock has underperformed the broader market over the past 12 months with a 12% decline, even though its recent results have been "solid" with margin expansion and a high-single-digit revenue growth. In addition to the improving financials, Eade expects AB InBev to benefit from the increased demand for premium beers, expanding sales of "near-beer" and nonalcoholic beverages, as well as its current "under-penetration" in emerging markets. The analyst further notes that the company may pursue further accretive acquisitions over time.

AB InBev named a sector Best Idea, replacing Coca-Cola at Guggenheim
Guggenheim analyst Laurent Grandet named Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) his sector Best Idea, replacing Coca-Cola (KO), citing his increased conviction in its U.S. growth following an investor seminar hosted by the company. The analyst, who also sees untapped "premiumization" opportunities and significant potential in emerging markets, raised his FY19, FY20 and FY21 EPS estimates for AB InBev but keeps an unchanged price target of $103 on the stock with a Buy rating.

Maxim analyst Anthony Vendetti assumed Craft Brew Alliance (BREW) with a Buy rating and a price target of $21, saying he expects the company's revenue to accelerate in 2019 thanks mostly to the increased marketing for its flagship Kona brand. The analyst also cites Craft Brew's relationship with InBev (BUD) and points to its option to make a qualifying acquisition offer at $24.50 per share by August 23rd.
