Stephens analyst Jeff…

Stephens analyst Jeff Cohen noted that he has previously hypothesized that Take-Two Interactive's "Grand Theft Auto VI" was likely planned for the company's fiscal year 2023, but he said that this year's 10-K filing from the company "seems to have shifted" a good deal of minimum marketing commitments spending from FY23 to FY24. While he is "not sure how much we should be reading into this shift," Cohen also noted that this type of disclosure accurately predicted the launch of "Red Dead Redemption 2" prior to that game's announcement. The timing of the next Grand Theft Auto remains top-of-mind for investors with the stock near all-time-highs, added Cohen, who keeps an Equal Weight rating and $130 price target on Take-Two shares.

Deutsche Bank analyst…

Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft raised the firm's price target on Take-Two Interactive to $175 from $145 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Take Two is the best growth story in video games, Kraft tells investors in a research note. The company is positioned to both continue leveraging its major active titles through live services growth and significantly increase its earnings power over the next few years through the release of tent pole titles based on proven intellectual property, says the analyst.

BMO Capital analyst…

BMO Capital analyst Gerrick Johnson upgraded Take-Two Interactive to Outperform from Market Perform with a price target of $170, up from $120. The stock closed Friday up $2.32 to $140.51. Stay at home tailwinds should persist for the video game industry, which is defensive in times of economic uncertainty, Johnson tells investors in a research note. Further, Take-Two's performance in Q4 illustrates the strength of its core franchises during this time of uncertainty, adds the analyst. Johnson is encouraged by the company's "strategy to seize opportunities" in new platforms, distribution models, and game genres, which he believes should provide more "stable, growing earnings and cash flow over time."

NPD Group analyst Mat…

NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella said via Twitter that April 2020 tracked spending across Video Game Hardware, Software, Accessories and Game Cards totaled $1.5B, 73% higher when compared to a year ago. This is a new record high in reported spend for an April month, eclipsing the $1.2B generated in April 2008, Piscatella said. Year-to-date 2020 tracked spending across Video Game Hardware, Software, Accessories and Game Cards reached $4.5B, increasing 12% when compared to a year ago. Dollar sales of tracked Video Game Software increased 55% in April compared to a year ago, to $662M. This is a new record high for an April month. The previous record of $642M was set in April 2008. Year-to-date sales of tracked Video Game Software now exceed $2B, 6% higher when compared to a year ago. Piscatella noted that Square Enix's "Final Fantasy VII Remake," which is a PlayStation 4 (SNE) exclusive, debuted as the best-selling game of April, making the game the third best selling game of 2020 so far, behind Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" and Nintendo's (NTDOY) "Animal Crossing: New Horizons." Other publicly traded companies in the video game sector include Take-Two (TTWO), Electronic Arts (EA), Ubisoft (UBSFY), Microsoft (MSFT), Capcom (CCOEY), GameStop (GME), and Tencent (TCEHY).

BofA analyst Ryan Gee…

BofA analyst Ryan Gee downgraded Take-Two to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $148, up from $140, after the company reported a quarterly beat that was driven by strong in-game revenue and the Rockstar catalog. While the company's new pipeline disclosure of 93 titles in development from all labels highlights the breadth of the pipeline beyond Rockstar and the next GTA, Gee does not see a near-term catalyst and sees "relatively superior upside potential elsewhere," he tells investors.
