Activision's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Activision is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $65.00 short put and a strike $60.00 long put offers a potential 33.69% return on risk over the next 22 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $65.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.26 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.74 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $60.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Activision is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Activision is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 64.76 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Why In-Game Revenue Is Key For Publishers Like Activision, Electronic Arts
Tue, 21 Apr 2020 19:35:36 +0000
Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) is akin to a buffet where consumers pay one price regardless of how much they consume.The comparison is only "partly true" for most video game publishers, Wedbush managing director and equity analyst Michael Pachter said Monday on Benzinga's PreMarket Prep show. Pachter's Take On Gaming Stocks Video game users increasing their screen time with a game like "Call of Duty" are more likely spending more money on in-game items, Pachter said.Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) offers a free-to-play version, but the user can buy various items like Redeploy Tokens, which bring a fallen teammate back to life, the analyst told the PreMarket Prep hosts.The mobile version of "Call of Duty" is on track to collect $300 to $400 million in revenue, a "gigantic" figure, he said. "So the right way to think about the publishers is to look at their revenue and look at the portion of their revenue that comes from in-game spending," Pachter said."For Activision that's about two-thirds; for Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc (NASDAQ: TTWO), that's about half."Sees Slow Uptake In Esports The video game publishers with the largest exposure to in-game revenue will "benefit the most" from the stay-at-home phenomenon, Pachter said. Other "massive beneficiaries" of this trend include Zynga Inc (NASDAQ: ZNGA) and Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU), he said. The esports category is a whole different one, and more like a "generational phenomenon" that requires many years to take off, the Wedbush analyst said. "Come back to me in 20 years when your kids are our age and their kids are watching esports and then I think it will be a phenomenon," he said.Related Link: Making Most Of Lockdowns, Facebook Gaming Launches Earlier Than PlannedWatch the full interview with Pachter in the clip below, or listen to the podcast here.PreMarket Prep is a daily trading show hosted by prop trader Dennis Dick and former floor trader Joel Elconin.
