Activision Blizzard price target raised to $59 from $56 at SunTrust

SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton says he expects "solid" Q3 reports from the video game companies, with Activision Blizzard (ATVI) having the most upside vs. consensus, driven by WoW and model EPS and revenue at 30c and $1.27B. The analyst raised his price target to $59 from $56 and maintains a Buy rating. He expects "at least" an in-line Q2 report from Electronic Arts (EA) and expects full-year guidance to be raised, though not likely to where the consensus is yet with half the fiscal year still to go. Thornton sees Take-Two's (TTWO) Q2 results to be slightly above the consensus, but sees initial Q3 guidance to be slightly below consensus, citing the company's "typical conservatism." He expects Take-Two to raise full-year guidance, though not likely to where the consensus is yet.

KeyBanc views Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Mobile datapoints as positive
KeyBanc analyst Tyler Parker notes that according to Sensortower, Activivision's "Call of Duty: Mobile" has accumulated over $2M in spend and 20M downloads within the first few days of release. This is relatively in line or above other battle royale games, or mobile games that have stemmed from established IP on console, he contends. The analyst continues to believe that the game has significant potential as a premium mobile game experience, and views initial datapoints as positive relative to his expectations of $20M for Q4.

Activision Blizzard price target raised to $62 from $55 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Activision Blizzard (ATVI) to $62 from $55 saying he continues to view the company as the best positioned video game publisher into 2020. His ongoing confidence in Activision, even after the recent run-up in shares, is due to a "favorable catalyst path" into 2020. This began with the recent launch of World of Warcraft Classic and continues with multiple new or updated titles coming over the next four-to-five quarters, Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst also keeps an Overweight rating on Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO).

Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen changed his Best Idea in video games to Zynga (ZNGA) from Electronic Arts (EA), stating that the former is well positioned for the next 6-18 months, which he believes will be a period of consolidation in the mobile gaming market. Zynga has a proven ability to successfully execute M&A and Cohen believes the potential for deals, along with its current portfolio, create a "very compelling risk/reward," he tells investors. Cohen keeps an Overweight rating and $8.25 price target on Zynga shares.

The analyst is lowering his estimates for EA slightly as he brings Apex to $275M for 2020 from $365M. Parker reiterates a Sector Weight rating on the shares.

Jefferies says stick with Activision Blizzard after video game survey
After surveying 600 U.S. video game players to gauge interest in the fall content slate and track overall engagement trends, Jefferies analyst Alex Giaimo tells investors to stick with his top pick Activision Blizzard (ATVI). Survey takeaways were positive for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, with 36% of responders planning to buy the game, says the analyst. He remains selective and favors Activision over Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO).

Stephens sees 'robust demand' for Take-Two's 'Red Dead 2' on PC
Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen reiterated an Overweight rating and $145 on Take-Two after the game maker's Rockstar unit confirmed that its popular game "Red Dead Redemption 2" will be coming to PC on November 5, exclusively on the developer's own PC launcher. Cohen said that with the release date for the port being confirmed, five months of "Red Dead" PC sales will be captured in fiscal 2020. He assumes in his model 2.5M units for the PC port in FY20, which "could wind up being conservative" as he had previously assumed the launch would come later in the quarter. The analyst said he continues to believe there is "robust demand" for the PC release and thinks that the release can also boost interest in "Red Dead Online" moving forward.
