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.

11:09 EDTFBFacebook sinks after unveiling 2015 spending plans
Shares of Facebook (FB) are retreating after the company announced stronger than expected results but said its expenses would jump 50%-70% in 2015 compared to this year. A number of analysts remained upbeat on the company's outlook following its results and guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Facebook's third quarter earnings per share came in at 43c, above the consensus estimate of 40c. The company's revenue came in slightly above expectations. The social networking giant said that its monthly active users had risen 14% in Q3 versus the same period a year earlier to 1.35B. But the company added that its expenses would surge 50%-70% in fiscal 2015, compared with fiscal 2014. Facebook reported that it plans to invest in various new technologies, including artificial intelligence and virtual reality. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali wrote that the stock and the company's margins would likely be pressured in the near-term by its spending plans. But Facebook's outlook is still strong and its valuation is compelling, the analyst stated. Moreover, Facebook's margins should remain healthy, and its results were "excellent," he wrote. Squali cut his price target on the name to $80 from $82, but kept a Buy rating on the shares. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs analyst Heather Bellini wrote that Facebook's spending next year is likely to come in below its guidance, as in the past, while the company's ad platform continues to have strong momentum. Facebook's ability to attract users across multiple devices and platforms is unparalleled and should enable the company to attract more ad dollars, the analyst wrote. She believes that the weakness in the stock today has created a buying opportunity. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Facebook fell 6% to $76.
