Activision Blizzard upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet

Nomura Instinet analyst Andrew Marok upgraded Activision Blizzard to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $64 from $49. The game maker closed yesterday down $1.12 to $54.91. Last month's launch of World of Warcraft Classic has driven "strong, above-expectations" engagement in the franchise, Marok tells investors in a research note. Further, Overwatch has recently added new features and last week announced a launch on the Nintendo Switch, the analyst points out. He believes these provides a "much more favorable backdrop" heading into November's BlizzCon, where he expects Activision will see the reveal of a World of Warcraft expansion for 2020 release and at least one of Diablo 4 or Overwatch 2.

Stifel adds Activision Blizzard to Select List, boosts price target to $65
Stifel analyst Drew Crum added Activision Blizzard to his firm's Select List and boosted his price target for the shares to $65 from $57. The stock closed Friday at $54.58. The analyst sees possible upside for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which launches on October 25, as he believes expectations "have been generally lower." Further, BlizzCon 2019 could serve as a share catalyst while Activision's fundamentals should improve in 2020 against an easy comp, Crum tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Timothy Horan saying the company's fundamentals are "healthy" in the near-term, and 2020 is setting up to be a "strong year." 2.

National Oilwell (NOV) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Bradley Handler saying even with the uncertain macro environment, National Oilwell's outlook includes backlog-based growth potential and less margin risk.

Activision Blizzard upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen upgraded Activision Blizzard to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target on the stock to $65 from $52, citing his view that estimates for 2019 are now "de-risked" due to the successful launch of World of Warcraft Classic and the announcement of a Nintendo Switch port of Overwatch.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Campbell Soup (CPB) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying better focus and reinvestment in key brands can drive long-term benefits for Campbell. 2. Intercept (ICPT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Joel Beatty saying the stock is down 45% since the Phase 3 nonalcoholic steatohepatitis Regnerate results for Intercept's obeticholic acid were announced in February, despite the data being positive. 3. Brunswick (BC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Randal Konik saying with expectations recalibrated post the Q2 results, Brunswick's risk/reward set-up is at its most favorable in four years. 4. Stamps.com (STMP) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Roth Capital with analyst Darren Aftahi saying after a round of channel checks with United State Postal Service ecosystem participants, the analyst believes more favorable rate cards for resellers could continue into 2020. As a result, he has a slightly more favorable view of Stamps.com's 2020, with raised revenue and adjusted EBITDA estimates. 5. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Gerrick Johnson saying he has a stronger conviction that the company's restructuring efforts and its investment in core franchise titles like Call of Duty and World of Warcraft will yield improved financial performance.
