Second 'Hearthstone' broadcaster quits Grandmasters after Blizzard bans player

Nathan "Admirable" Zamora, a broadcaster of Blizzard's "Hearthstone" esports events, said he will not be part of the broadcast team for the game for the remainder of this Grandmasters season, for the Masters Tour in Bucharest, or for Blizzcon. Zamora said he made his decision in light of recent events regarding pro player "Blitzchung," who received several penalties from Blizzard for voicing support for Hong Kong protestors during an official stream. "Blitzchung's actions to support Hong Kong speak to me far more than I could have imagined," Zamora said in a statement posted to Twitter. "It takes courage to stand up for what you believe in, and to make sacrifices in the process. His actions are inspiring to me, and I support him wholeheartedly." The move comes after Brian Kibler, another "Hearthstone" broadcaster, announced he would not participate in Grandmasters following Blizzard's one-year ban of Blitzchung. Reference Link

Activision Blizzard downgraded to Underperform at Bernstein
As previously reported, Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded Activision Blizzard to Underperform from Market Perform as he cannot reconcile the current stock price with the company's risk-adjusted fundamentals. Furthermore, the analyst believes the market is "paying too much for the hope" this is the trough and things can only get better. Juenger raised his price target on the stock to $43 from $41.

Activision Blizzard (ATVI) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Todd Juenger saying he cannot reconcile the current stock price with the company's risk-adjusted fundamentals. 5.

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.

Buy
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.
