11:07 EDTEA, GME, ATVI, TTWOVideo game makers, GameStop climb after NPD sales data
Shares of a number of video game makers are climbing after data indicated that U.S. video game sales were stronger than expected last month. WHAT'S NEW: Research firm NPD found that video game sales dropped 9% last month, versus the same period a year earlier, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson reported in a note to investors earlier today. Olson had expected software sales to tumble 29% last month, he stated. Take-Two Interactive (TTW) stood out as sales of its video games jumped 44% last month, while Electronic Arts (EA) and Activision Blizzard (ATVI) trailed with declines of 45% and 33% respectively, NPD reported. Olson remains confident that the video game sector will start growing during the next holiday shopping season as more players update to the next generation of hardware consoles. Video game retailer GameStop (GME) should also get a boost from the holiday season, wrote Olson, who kept Overweight ratings on all the stocks named in this note. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Electronic Arts rose 1.5% to $30.14, Take-Two Interactive climbed 1.8% to $21.25, Activision Blizzard added 1.2% to $21.10, and GameStop jumped 4% to $38.65.
