Shares of Intersil (ISIL), which makes analog integrated circuits for the personal computer market, are lower after the company reported Q3 results that missed analysts' expectations.

On its earnings conference call last night, the company said it sees slowing sequential demand in part due to lower PC builds.

12:21 EDTMSFTElectronic Arts surges after 'beat and raise' quarterly report
Shares of video game maker Electronic Arts (EA) are surging after the company's second quarter earnings per share and revenue topped analysts' estimates. The company also raised its fiscal year 2015 guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Electronic Arts' Q2 adjusted EPS was 73c, which beat analysts' consensus of 53c. The company's revenue for the quarter was $1.22B, which beat estimates of $1.16B. The video game maker anticipates third quarter EPS to be 90c, which is higher than analysts' 86c consensus. The company expects Q3 revenue of approximately $1.275B, which is slightly lower than analysts' expectations of $1.3B. Electronic Arts raised its FY15 EPS outlook to $2.05 from $1.85, which is higher than analysts' consensus of $1.92 prior to the new outlook. The company raised its FY15 revenue view to $4.175B from $4.1B, which was slightly ahead of the consensus estimate prior to the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: EA stated that, in the calendar year to date, the company continues to be the number one publisher on Sony's (SNE) PlayStation4 and Xbox One consoles in the Western World, led by FIFA 15, NHL 15, Madden NFL 15, Titanfall, Battlefield 4, and FIFA 14. Electronic Arts noted that "Battlefield: Hardline" will debut on March 17, 2015 in North America and March 19, 2015 in Europe. On July 29, Electronic Arts announced in a post to its corporate blog that the company partnered with Microsoft (MSFT) to deliver EA Access, a new monthly, or annual, membership for gamers exclusively on Xbox One that starts at $4.99 a month. ANALYST REACTION: RW Baird analyst Colin Sebastian feels that digital growth was a notable aspect of Electronic Arts' Q2 earnings results. He said the quarter was driven by the combination of a rise in digital content sales and improved cost controls. Sebastian anticipates the video game maker will continue to improve its operating performance and benefit from solid growth in the future. Sebastian increased his price target on the stock to $45 from $43 and maintained an Outperform rating on the stock. Brean Capital analyst Todd Mitchell believes that Electronic Arts' Q2 earnings results will probably be out-shone by the push-back of its Battlefield 5 game to 2017. Mitchell expects Electronic Arts to sell approximately 4M units of "Battlefield: Hardline" by the end of FY15. He kept a Buy rating on Electronic Arts and raised his price target on the stock to $43 from $40. OTHERS TO WATCH: Electronic Arts peer Activision Blizzard (ATVI) is scheduled to give its Q3 earnings report on November 4. Another competitor, Take-Two (TTWO), is set to release its Q2 earnings numbers later on this afternoon. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Electronic Arts climbed 3.6% to $38.83. Earlier in the session the stock hit a new 52-week high of $40.34.
