Video game publishers have 'significant upside' as industry trends continue to shift
Analysts at BTIG on Wednesday initiated coverage on video game publishers Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and Activision Blizzard Inc. with buy ratings, and on Electronic Arts Inc. with a neutral rating. The BTIG analysts, led by Brandon Ross, wrote in a note to investors that they believe there is still significant upside for video game publishers, even with the multi-year run stocks have enjoyed as profits have climbed higher and multiples have expanded. "Activision, Take-Two and EA have all seen significant gains over the past four years. As we began to research the space, our knee-jerk reaction was 'we missed it' and we wished we had covered these names earlier," Ross wrote. "The transformation of games from standalone packaged media to connected entertainment services is not a finite tailwind for publishers. As players engage with games, publishers are better able to monetize and continuously create richer and more valuable experiences for consumers, leading to further engagement and profits." The reason for EA's neutral rating is analysts have concerns about the company's ability to execute on the industry trends. Shares of Take-Two have gained close to 132% in the trailing 12-month period, while shares of Activision have gained 78% and EA shares have gained 39%. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up 20% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Legal marijuana industry could generate $40 billion in economic impact by 2021
A new report released by Arcview Market Research on Tuesday says the legal marijuana industry is expected to generate nearly $40 billion in economic impact by 2021. That would be roughly a 150% increase in economic output from the $16 billion cannabis generated in 2017. The report provides estimates on cannabis's total economic contribution, direct and indirect jobs created and tax receipts from each of the 35 states that are expected to have medical and, or recreational marijuana by 2021, according to a news release. "Across the country, Americans are worried about being able to find jobs and support their families," Arcview Market Research Editor-in-Chief Tom Adams said in a statement. "The numerous employment opportunities created by the cannabis industry, especially in states that are legalizing adult use, cross the spectrum from retail and service jobs to science, technology and other traditional professions." The report estimates that legalization of adult-use, or recreational marijuana sales in California, which began on Tuesday, will create nearly 146,000 cannabis-related jobs in the state in four years. As California joined some 28 other states, and the District of Columbia, that have legalized recreational marijuana stocks of companies tied to the industry saw big share gains on Tuesday.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Netflix shares gain premarket after upgrade at Macquarie Research
Shares of Netflix Inc. were upgraded to outperform from a neutral rating by analysts at Macquarie Research on Tuesday. The main reasons for the upgrade are the analysts' new preference for companies with subscription models rather than ad-driven, and scaled distribution with an international presence. Lead analyst Tim Nollen wrote that Netflix's improving revenue and earnings were also a driver for the upgrade. "We believe Netflix is taking several steps to improve this beyond the market's obsession with sub numbers to date," Nollen wrote. "A second round of price increases is now coming through, Netflix is expanding its distribution relationships with cable operators and telcos globally, international growth is taking off on a concerted strategy to develop local content offerings, and Netflix is beginning to work on ways to reduce password sharing, which could drive even more subscribers." Nollen also said Netflix remains far ahead of its peers, and Walt Disney Co.'s forthcoming streaming service, which won't launch until 2019, won't threaten Netflix. However, the streaming giant's negative free cash flow is still a risk, and he noted that the Federal Communication Commission's repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules could also be a big risk if internet service providers decide to raise bandwidth prices. Netflix shares were up 1.5% in premarket trade on Tuesday and are up 55% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 19% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%.

AMD stock jumps after Macquarie upgrade
Shares of Advanced Micro Devices rose 4.7% in Monday morning trading after analysts at Macquarie Research upgraded the stock to neutral from underperform. While the analysts, led by Srini Pajjuri, see "headwinds" in the cryptocurrency market and predict only moderate share gains in both PCs and graphics processing units (GPUs), they're more upbeat about other aspects of the business, including the opportunity for growth in average selling prices [ASP] and a recent partnership with Intel Corp. . The firm predicts "further ASP tailwinds in GPUs driven by Apple iMac Pro win and the recent Intel partnership (for gaming notebooks)." The analysts also see potential for AMD's server business, thanks to "encouraging" arrangements with Microsoft Inc. , Baidu Inc. , and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. , though they caution that share gains will take time. They raised their price target on shares to $11, from $10. AMD shares have fallen 5.8% so far in 2017, compared with a 20% gain for the S&P 500 Index and a 40% rise for the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
