Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson reiterated an Overweight rating and bumped his price target on Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO) to $45.00 (from $40.00) following mixed June quarter.
Olson commented, "Take-Two reported mixed June quarter results, with EPS below at ($0.34) vs. the Street at ($0.29), but revenue above at $273M vs. the Street at $259M. The quarter was driven by digital rev from GTA Online and NBA 2K16. Digital rev declined 25% y/y due to a difficult comparison to the PC launch of GTA V, but GTA Online had its best ever qtr of "bookings" and recurrent consumer spending overall increased 22% y/y. For FY17, the company maintained EPS outlook for $1.00-$1.25 while modestly increasing revenue by $50M to $1.55-$1.65B vs. consensus of $1.29 on $1.6B. While FY17 EPS guidance is below consensus, most investors will likely give Take-Two a "pass," given the strong performance of GTA Online and expectations for a Red Dead in FY18. Maintain OW, raising PT to $45 from $40 on an increased multiple to 17x from 14x and increased FY18E EPS."
Shares of Take-Two Interactive closed at $40.57 yesterday.
