MKM Partners maintains a 'Buy' on Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO) price target lowered to $15.00.

Analyst, Eric Handler, said, "The shares have taken a beating, but the story is not broken. Despite a weaker than expected start to FY13 and EPS losses projected in 2Q, we remain positive towards Take-Two based on the strength of its upcoming release slate and its potential to still approach record results for the year. While EPS of ($1.16) was roughly $0.50 shy of our ($0.65) forecast, full year guidance for the year only declined by $0.25 to $1.75-$2.00 from $2.00-$2.25. We believe this outlook reflects a stronger forecast for key upcoming releases, increased expectations for mobile sales, and lower product development costs in the remaining quarters of the year."

Q2 EPS estimate lowered from $0.20 to (0.06) and FY13 EPS estimate cut from $2.75 to $2.00
