Mizuho Securities reiterated a Buy rating on Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI), and raised the price target to $48.00 (from $46.00), after attending an event for the company's new Call of Duty game. After playing the game, Mizuho sees numerous signs of continued innovation that players will enjoy.

Analyst Neil A. Doshi commented, "We attended Activision Blizzards's sold-out Call of Duty XP event at the Forum in L.A., and walked away incrementally more positive on this year's CoD title and the franchise in general. We are reiterating our Buy Rating on ATVI, raising our estimates for 2016 and 2017, and bumping up our PT from $46 to $48, as we are modestly raising our estimates on CoD."
