What is Activision Blizzard's stock symbol?

Activision Blizzard trades on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol "ATVI."

Where is Activision Blizzard's stock going? Where will Activision Blizzard's stock price be in 2017?

20 equities research analysts have issued 12 month target prices for Activision Blizzard's shares. Their predictions range from $40.00 to $56.00. On average, they anticipate Activision Blizzard's share price to reach $49.21 in the next twelve months.

When will Activision Blizzard announce their earnings?

Activision Blizzard is scheduled to release their next quarterly earnings announcement on Wednesday, May, 3rd 2017.

What are analysts saying about Activision Blizzard stock?

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

  • Argus analysts commented, "Overwatch" and King Digital’s "Candy Crush." (2/15/2017)

  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "we suspect they could have missed the quarter; a scenario that we believe has been effectively priced. We do not believe weakness is systemic, and have been recommending investors buy before release and on any related weakness. We see a strong growth opportunity in fiscal '18; where we are modeling for 32% EPS growth. Short interest has declined 38%, from Dec." (2/3/2017)
