Summary:

  • The success of Call of Duty: Mobile on Android and iOS convinced me that Activision Blizzard will remain of the biggest beneficiaries of the $152 billion/year video games industry.
  • Tablet and smartphone games now account for more than 44% of the annual sales from video games. The smartphone is now the key growth driver for video games.
  • Activision Blizzard will launch the Switch version of its hit PC game Overwatch on October 15. I expect Overwatch to also launch on Android/iOS by next year.
  • A stronger focus on the mobile platform can significantly boost Activision’s annual revenue and net income.

ATVI Stock Forecast: Activision Blizzard Is Still A Dependable Bet On Video Games

Summary:

  • Activision Blizzard’s 1-year price return is –41.78%. This is an opportunity to own the stock at a notably lower price.
  • Going forward, the growing $150 billion/year video games industry will ultimately help ATVI recover.
  • Management ignored my previous recommendation that it should create a heroes-based Battle Royale game based on Overwatch.
  • The only thing that’s keeping me long on ATVI is its King Digital subsidiary. King’s Candy Crush is still among the world’s top-grossing video games.
