Goldman Sachs analyst Michael Ng reinstates Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $170.00.

The analyst comments "A should benefit from (1) strong live services momentum (e.g., FIFA and Madden Ultimate) as stay-at-home measures continue to drive heightened video game engagement; (2) launches of Apex Legends mobile and in China, in addition to Battlefield in F2022 (GSe: 8 mn units during launch quarter); (3) the continuation of share buybacks after pausing buybacks throughout most of 2020 and tuck-in M&A; and (4) optionality from new product announcements including new Star Wars games and next-gen exclusive game modes for Battlefield."
