Sony Stock

Any predictions for the Sony stock? I believe the stock is currently going through a dip totaling around 10-15% (because of Microsoft’s purchase of Activision and investors overreacting) in my eyes it can potentially give me a return rate of 5-10% or even more by next month if I buy …

Why doesn't everyone buy Activision Blizzard stocks?

With the news of Microsoft acquiring them at $95 per stock, it seems like a good investment right now, 30% profit when the transaction completes (the current price is $72.59). Besides the risk of the transaction not going through, are there any other risks I dont …

Is Microsofts acquisition of Activision Blizzard going to be bad long term for ATVI?

There was a huge spike (>25%) in the share price of ATVI after the announcement. I assume this is mostly because this acquisition distances the company from the controversy that cause the dip over the last few months. Not to mention it provides the company with essentially unlimited …

Microsoft buying Activison

So they make Call of Duty and Microsoft buying them out, what’s the chances they make it Xbox or Pc only once they have full control over the company, not to even mention other games Activision already makes, I’m wondering if this is even possible and if so that …

Why can Microsoft and Activision Blizzard already tweet if the deal hasn't come through?

Not a stocks person--just curious. Sorry if this is the wrong flair. So I keep seeing the reasoning for not buying ATVI is because of antitrust laws and the possibility of the deal taking years to happen (the Sprint and T-Mobile merge example pops up every time lol). At the same …

Big shoutout to DFV! Wouldnt be here without you. I think what may happen is by the end of this week, it will drop under $100. They want to get it under 100 to influence people to sell. No one here will sell at a loss. If I had the $ I would lower my cost avg. Great opportunity …

Microsoft’s $ATVI acquisition is a bullish signal for tech stocks.

It doesn’t feel like MSFT has to absolutely buy activation NOW to do well in gaming (it earns fees from all the sales through Xbox store anyway). The fact that MSFT didn’t initiate a deeper partnership but straight up buying activation blizzard is probably a impulse purchase because …

Video game stocks are the future folks….Been long $ATVI (Activision blizzard) and $TTWO (Take-Two) for a few years now. Microsoft purchased $ATVI today for nearly 70 billion and I wouldn’t be surprised if Take-Two is next. $TTWO sits at about 17.7B market cap ($ATVI is 64B) and after …

With the recent acquisition by Microsoft so you think we will see a similar trend across the industry. In order to stay competitive do you think will we see acquisitions of companies like Ubisoft, EA and other game developers?

Question from a noob. My brain is smoother than most

Some thoughts on Microsoft buying Activision Blizzard

If Microsoft is buying activision at 95 dollars a share, how come the share price has risen to "only" 80 dollars?

Big news today as microsoft is set to aquire another video game giant in Activision at 95 dollars a share. Activision share price has soared from the news but as I am writing it, "only" about 25% to 80 dollars. Why not closer to 95 dollars? What would prevent this …
