Blizzard delays 'WoW' event in Taiwan amid Hong Kong protests, Polygon says

Blizzard Entertainment, a division of Activision Blizzard (ATVI), has postponed its 15th anniversary "World of Warcraft in Taiwan, which was originally scheduled for this weekend, Polygon's Nicole Carpenter reports. While the company did not provide any reason for canceling the event, people have swarmed Blizzard's Taiwanese Facebook page for the game with support for pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, Carpenter says. The move comes as Blizzard faces criticism internally and from fans after suspending a pro "Hearthstone" player for supporting Hong Kong protesters on an official broadcast, the author notes. Also, Polygon's Carpenter noted that the company canceled its "Overwatch" on Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch event this week at Nintendo's New York City store. Reference Link

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.

Activision Blizzard player boycott impacting Hearthstone revenue, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Doug Creutz noted after the company's decision to suspend a player for pro-Hong Kong comments, there have been calls online to boycott the company. The analyst said data suggests that US bookings for the game are at least 18-23% lower than they would have been without the boycott, with varying impacts in other countries. Creutz maintains his Market Perform rating and $48 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

Activision Blizzard price target raised to $55 from $47 at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet raised his price target for Activision Blizzard to $55 from $47 citing the strong October 1 launch of Call of Duty: Mobile. A few days following the release, Activision disclosed that the game had garnered over 35M downloads, Bazinet tells investors in a research note. The analyst "modestly" raised his revenue estimates for Activision and rolled forward his valuation framework from 2020 to 2021. However, he keeps a Neutral rating on the shares, saying both consensus forecasts and Activision's valuation reflect its growth.

NPD video game sales down 6% for Q3, says Piper Jaffray
NPD video game sales data is down 6% for the full September quarter, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL was the top selling title for all of Q3, followed closely by Take-Two (TTWO) titles NBA 2K20 and Borderlands 3, Olson says. He views the NPD results are neutral for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), given no major launches for the quarter. The analyst maintains Overweight ratings on Activision, EA and Take Two.

Nintendo upgraded to Outperform on Switch Lite launch at Wedbush
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter upgraded Nintendo to Outperform from Neutral as he expects the introduction of the Nintendo Switch Lite to drive hardware and software sales well above 2020 guidance and maintain the company's positive momentum into 2021. The analyst also cited increased optimism about Switch's future success, and the release of the mobile game Mario Kart Tour this summer, which could also act as a positive catalyst for shares.

Best Buy has 'nice demand driver' in Switch Lite, says Jefferies
Social engagement and expert reviews suggest a favorable demand trajectory for the Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch Lite, which debuted Friday, Jefferies analyst Jonathan Matuszewski tells investors in a research note. In addition, webscrapes show Best Buy (BBY) is likely to see an outsized share of gaming console sales versus other retailers, adds the analyst. He believes the Switch Lite could be a "nice demand driver" for Best Buy during key holiday selling weeks and an "important bridge" until more prominent launches in fiscal 2021. Matuszewski reiterates a Buy rating on Best Buy shares with an $80 price target.

Nintendo's 20M Mario Kart Tour downloads beat bull case at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Masahiro Ono said Sensor Tower reports that Mario Kart Tour was downloaded 20M times on its first day following release, which topped his bull case forecast of over 15M. The analyst, who thinks the market expected around 10M day-one downloads, looks for in-game purchases to make a contribution going forward. He also noted that press reports indicate that Switch Lite sold an estimated 178,000 units in the three days following its release, which was better than his base case expectation for 50,000-100,000 units. Ono keeps an Overweight rating on Nintendo shares, stating that a near-term decline in the shares would present a good opportunity to re-enter the stock.
