Jefferies analyst, Brian Fitzgerald, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) after shares have fallen 17% from the Oct. 52-week highs on fears that Call of Duty is under-performing this holiday. Unit sales declines may be worse than anticipated but this should be partially offset by the higher uptake of the $80 premium SKU.

The analyst believes the COD launch could result in an EPS shortfall of around $0.04 but he is leaving 4Q estimates intact due to optimism around Overwatch and WoW, which both had engagement spikes.

No change to the price target of $55.
