09:39 EDTATVIeSports seen as next big growth opportunity in media
Competitive video game playing in organized leagues, or eSports, is on the verge of reaching mainstream adoption and moving from an engagement tool to a monetization opportunity for video game makers, according to Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, who calls the trend the "biggest media and sports growth opportunity you've never heard of." NEXT BIG THING: eSports could have 200M active and engaged participants as early as next year and can grow from about $200M this year to $1B in revenues by 2018, Sebastian tells investors this morning in a research note. Game publishers such as Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) are "natural beneficiaries," according to Sebastian, who believes that eSports has the potential to drive earnings growth and multiple expansion for the sector. eSports is still mainly a tool to help engage and keep core gamers, but Sebastian expects this to change quickly as game makers focus on incremental revenue opportunities and increasing average revenue per user. The analyst also sees "significant opportunities" from eSports for online streaming platforms, like Amazon's (AMZN) Twitch and Google's (GOOG) newer platform, as well as for Microsoft (MSFT), Sony (SNE) and PC and component makers. ANOTHER eSPORTS BULL: Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis previously told investors that he believes the surging popularity of competitive video gaming on a global basis will benefit game publishers as well as hardware companies like NVIDIA (NVDA). In a note to investors last month, the analyst said that Activision Blizzard had five of the top fifteen most popular games on Twitch in July, and contended that the company looks best positioned among game makers to benefit from the eSports opportunity. On the date of his eSports note, Lipacis upgraded NVIDIA to Buy from Hold, saying secular growth in gaming will trump PC weakness. The company's Gaming Graphics Processing Unit is "under the radar" and has grown 23% annually over the past three years, noted Lipacis, who raised his price target for shares to $30 from $23. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Activision Blizzard rose 1.4% to $31.90, Electronic Arts gained 1.04% to $67.18 and Take-Two Interactive advanced 0.85% to $29.64.
