Video games are seeing record play time amid COVID lockdown, Forbes says

A Forbes story by Matt Perez out earlier today illustrates the impact of the school closures, mandatory work-from-home policies and lockdowns taking place in the U.S. as a result of the Covid-19 on the performance of U.S. gaming industry. For instance on Sunday, the most popular ,digital PC gaming marketplace, Steam drew a record 20,313,451 concurrent users while "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, released by Steam-owner Valve in 2012, seems to be the top beneficiary of the increased engagement, breaking it's all-time peak on Sunday," added Recode. Companies that may be feeling the impact of this include, Electronic Arts (EA), Telecom Italia (TIAOF), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Nintendo (NTDOY), Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Take-Two (TTWO), Zynga (ZNGA), Sony (SNE), Panasonic (PCRFY) and Microsoft (MSFT).

Shares of Criteo (CRTO)…

Shares of Criteo (CRTO) were on the rise in after hours trading after the company lowered its first quarter guidance and withdrew its fiscal 2020 guidance due to the ongoing impact that COVID-19 is having on the company's clients' business. WHAT'S NEW: Criteo lowered its Q1 ex-TAC revenue to $204M-$206M from $209M-$212M in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysts expect the company to report Q1 revenue of $207.46M. In addition, Criteo raised its Q1 adjusted EBITDA view to $59M-$61M from its previous outlook of $55M-$58M. Meanwhile, Criteo said it is currently not yet in a position to reliably quantify the impact of COVID-19 on its financial results for the remainder of 2020, and as a result is withdrawing its previously issued financial guidance for fiscal year 2020 and expects to discuss its future outlook at the time of its earnings call for the first quarter 2020. "We are entirely focused on executing on our strategic and operating priorities," said Megan Clarken, CEO. "Our solid financial model and strong liquidity give us confidence. We remain true to our mission of powering the world's marketers with trusted and impactful advertising." SUNTRUST: Following the news, SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton maintained a Buy rating and $25 price target on Criteo (CRTO). Thornton said that he doesn't think this should come as a surprise with Yelp (YELP) and many other non-term advertising-driven companies having withdrawn or revised guidance or otherwise commented on pressures related to the COVID-19 outbreak in recent weeks. PRICE ACTION: In after hours trading, Criteo shares are up 10.7%.
