Baird analyst Colin Sebastian reiterated an Outperform rating and raised his price target on Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) to $91.00 (from $83.00) following results, saying flagship title strength overshadows near-term Titanfall concerns.

Sebastian commented, "EA reported another solid quarter, with in-line revenue and an EPS beat, driven largely by annual EA Sports releases. Most importantly, management highlighted strength in FIFA and Battlefield 1, historically the two largest sources of EA sales/profitability. While recent checks indicated softer-than-anticipated launch units/pre-orders for Titanfall 2 (management did not comment on initial sales), strong reviews (~90 Metacritic) could translate into healthier demand. Overall, we believe Battlefield and FIFA momentum carry the day. Maintain Outperform, new $91 price target."
