13:21 EDTTHQI, GME, EA, GLUU, ATVI, TTWO, COOL, ZNGATake-Two rises after results beat expectations
Video game maker Take-Two (TTWO) is climbing after the company reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results and issued upbeat long-term guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Take-Two's fourth quarter earnings came in at 38c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 23c. The company's fourth quarter revenue was also higher than expected. Take-Two's strong results were driven by "robust demand for our groundbreaking new releases, iconic catalog titles and expanding portfolio of digitally delivered offerings," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. Zelnick added that he expected the company to become profitable in fiscal year 2015 and "for the foreseeable future." Take-Two's future games will enable it to bring its bottom line into positive territory, Zelnick explained. On a negative note, the company provided guidance for a higher than expected first quarter EPS loss, as well as lower than expected revenue. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia raised his price target on the stock to $21 from $17. The stock should continue to rise ahead of the company's release of the next version of its popular Grand Theft Auto game on September 17, the analyst believes. Moreover, investors' confidence should be increased by the company's long-term guidance, contended Bhatia. who kept a Buy rating on the shares. Conversely, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian called Take-Two Interactive "an interesting idea" but warned that his outlook on the video game sector remains cautious. Sebastian kept a Neutral rating on the stock, although he did increase his price target to $17 from $13. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Take-Two rose 55c, or 3.33%, to $16.95. Other video game makers also advanced, with Electronic Arts (EA) rising 2% to $22.17 and Activision Blizzard (ATVI) climbing 2.4% to $15.
