  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Electronic Arts' reported a solid fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results wherein both earnings and revenues beat estimates and improved year over year. Strength in digital business backed by live services and mobile games remain a key growth driver. EA has been the primary beneficiary of the ongoing shift from physical to digital versions of video games. The company expects the digital business to continue to remain a tailwind. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, the hit driven and competitive nature of video game industry begets caution. Rise in operating expense, mainly due to higher investments in games and live services, is an overhang on the bottom line." (5/14/2018)

It is notable EA is able to raise FY’18 guide by 5c in this environment.
