What are analysts saying about Activision Blizzard stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Activision Blizzard stock:

  • 1. Macquarie analysts commented, "Investor interest in eSports is rapidly building and we expect near-term newsflow from ATVI about the sale of teams for its coming Overwatch League to drive significantly more investor attention to the eSports theme... A crucial component to the success of the Overwatch League will be its viewership. As a game, Overwatch has been a tremendous success for ATVI, reaching 25mm registered players and a significant portion of Blizzard's $2.4B revenue. But as an eSport, though off to a solid start, Overwatch is still very much the newcomer among the top eSports games on the planet. On Twitch.TV (the leading eSports streaming site), Overwatch has consistently ranked the #5 most-viewed eSport behind League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Dota 2, and Hearthstone, and is averaging around 30K concurrent viewers compared to League of Legend's leading 130K. Overwatch does often drop below #5 on the charts, but this is almost always due to new game releases that only impact the rankings on their opening week." (3/22/2017)
  • 2. Argus analysts commented, "Overwatch" and King Digital’s "Candy Crush." (2/15/2017)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Activision reported fourth quarter results wherein both adjusted earnings and revenues beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, management provided a subdued outlook for 2017 underscoring a “lighter slate” of releases in the year. Nonetheless, we believe the company’s enviable product portfolio that includes the likes of Call of Duty and World of Warcraft along with increasing digital revenues will continue to drive growth. Moreover, the company will continue to benefit from acquisition of King Digital. The company’s attempts to become a broad-based media company are prudent in our view. Apart from launching a movie studio and consumer products division, the company is also strengthening its presence in the lucrative e-sports market. Over the past one year, share prices have outperformed the Zacks categorized Toys/Games/Hobby Prod industry. " (2/15/2017)
  • 4. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "This past week, Activision Blizzard reported better-than-expected 4Q results, with non-GAAP EPS of $0.92 (vs. $0.83) which came in ahead of our $0.73 estimate, and consensus and guidance (implied) at $0.74. The company was able to overcome a disappointing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release, through a combination of digital momentum (+94%) and contributions from other franchises (i.e., Overwatch + World of Warcraft). And we thought management's preliminary guidance for '17 was in line/slightly better vs. what we had perceived to be a very wide range of expectations. Near-term, earnings may need to catch up with the share price, in our opinion. But looking further ahead, we think the stock can continue to work higher in anticipation of a 2H17 recovery for Activision Publishing + stronger line-up for '18, and thus we remain Buy-rated on ATVI." (2/10/2017)
  • 5. Mizuho analysts commented, "A|B posted strong 4Q results with non-GAAP EPS of $0.92 coming in $0.19 ahead of Street expectations. In our view, this quarter highlighted the strength of the company's portfolio of games, which dramatically offset disappointing sales of this year's Call of Duty title. The company also provided guidance for 2017, with EPS expectations materially below consensus, but in line with our estimate. We believe investors were already there with us, and viewed the outcome as a positive catalyst. The company tends to be conservative with its guidance at the start of the year and we see upside potential throughout the year." (2/10/2017)
