    Take-Two stock drops following announcement of second Red Dead Redemption 2 delay

    Shares of Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. are down 2.9% in Thursday trading after the company said that it has delayed the release of of its Red Dead Redemption 2 title until October. The game has already been delayed once before, as it was originally slated to launch last October before the company pushed that back as well. "Getting the long tail of the game correct is more important than recognizing the units two quarters earlier," wrote KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst Evan Wingren, who rates the stock at overweight with a $144 target. "We'd take advantage of the weakness on that belief." The game will now be released in the same quarter as a new Call of Duty from Activision Blizzard Inc. and a new Battlefield from Electronic Arts Inc. , he added. Wingren had predicted, before the delay announcement, that Take-Two would sell 20 million units in the year following its launch. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been considered a key catalyst for shares of Take-Two, which also publishes the Grand Theft Auto Franchise. Take-Two's stock is up 127% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 Index is up 24%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    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.
