Riot tells 'League of Legends' players, casters to not discuss politics on air

John Needham, Global Head of League of Legends Esports, said that those who broadcast "League of Legends" games have a "responsibility to keep personal views on sensitive issues (political, religious, or otherwise) separate." Needham said he has reminded the league's casters and pro players to refrain from discussing any of these topics while on air. "Our decision also reflects that we have Riot employees and fans in regions where there has been (or there is risk of) political and/or social unrest, including places like Hong Kong," Needham added. "We believe we have a responsibility to do our best to ensure that statements or actions on our official platforms (intended or not) do not escalate potentially sensitive situations." Riot Games, which makes "League of Legends," is owned by Chinese company Tencent (TCEHY). The Fly notes that this statement comes after several "Hearthstone" broadcasters have stepped away from the video game's broadcasts after developer Blizzard (ATVI) banned a pro player for a year after the player ended a stream with comments supporting protestors in Hong Kong.

Buy
Tencent assumed with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Thomas Chong assumed coverage of Tencent with a Buy rating and HK$455 price target. The company's evolution from consumer to industry internet amid a "solid foundation" in gaming, coupled with ad market share gains, paves the way for long-term growth, contends the analyst.

Tencent online advertising segment outlook improved to positive at OTR Global
Following checks with advertising managers in Chinese tier-1 cities, OTR Global said its outlook on Tencent's online advertising segment has improved to positive from a mixed view in May. WeChat Moments and demand for original video content helped drive year-over-year spending increases on Tencent during Q2 and growth is expected to improve slightly in Q3, the firm stated in a note to investors earlier.

Barclays analyst Gregory Zhao lowered his price target for Tencent Holdings to $54 from $59 while reiterating an Overweight rating on the shares. The company's Q2 results showed accelerated growth across both top and bottom lines, "which is quite commendable amidst macro and regulatory headwinds," Zhao tells investors in a research note. Post the results, the analyst expects consensus estimates to become "more realistic."

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 $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.
