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.

11:11 EDTGMEAnalyst says Best Buy shares poised to rise
Best Buy's (BBY) stock is poised to advance after the company reports its second quarter results, research firm B. Riley predicted. WHAT'S NEW: Best Buy's forecast for increased margins in the second half of the year, along with easing comparisons, should cause the stock to rise, predicted B. Riley in a note to investors earlier today. The shares will be particularly well-positioned to climb after the company updates its guidance following its Q2 results, the firm believes. Best Buy's initiatives should help increase its revenue and profits heading into fiscal 2017 and the retailer can continues to increase its market share at the expense of Sears (SHLD), RadioShack and others. Additionally, macro economic trends remain favorable for Best Buy and its key product categories continue to perform well, according to B. Riley. The firm, which is particularly confident about the company's ability to beat Q4 consensus estimates, keeps a $47 price target on the name and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In their own note to investors this morning, SunTrust analysts David Magee and D. Mitch Van Zelfden speculated on potential M&A activity in the specialty retail space, noting that "Wall Streetís appetite for acquisitions has strengthened recently." In their opinion, Best Buy acquiring GameStop (GME) is among the "most compelling relationships" in the sector, the note explained. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Best Buy slid 0.4% to $34.72, while GameStop rose 1.3% to $44.92.
