  Electronic Arts (ERTS)/Bulls/New Management, New Ideas, New Games

A new management team has completely reinvigorated the company. New ideas are being explored, new games are being developed and new franchises are being established. Some of these inroads will fail to materialize, but others could potentially lead to massive windfall profits.

This can be seen in the recent awards given at the various game shows, including E3 where EA garnered the most awards for the upcoming lineup of new games. EA has increased development time for various titles to increase overall quality. With a larger install base, and games that have garnered critical acclaim from the past months we should see a sizable increase in EA's coffers in the coming months.

  CFO Eric Brown is Gone

Look at what he did when he joined in 2008. He is now gone. I am bullish on this buy because EA is definitely going take a remodeling approach of it's company as the internet and gaming industry evolves. Facebook's IPO is also another important factor in this because Ea's new Sims game will be a hit again on the mobile devices.

  Another company which will raise from Facebook's IPO

As investors go out and raise the price of Zynga because of Facebook's IPO. I believe ultimately the true stable investment should go into Electronic Arts which has been around longer in the gaming industry which competes against Zynga directly in mobile/Facebook platform. Opinions?

  Electronic Arts (ERTS)/Bulls/Speculation of Microsoft acquiring ERTS

Rumors of MSFT acquiring ERTS has been around for some time now and it looks likely to take steam although some analyst still disagree.

ERTS shares recently rose 8.9% to $20.17 on more than twice its average daily volume over the past 30 days. The stock hit a high Wednesday of $20.33, the first time it was above $20 in more than a month. MSFT shares added 1.6% to $26.17.

The gains by ERTS seem driven by the takeover speculation. Volume in Electronic Arts calls options contracts also skyrocketed. Activity in calls often rises when a company is in an industry expected to consolidate. Marcus.tan.yi.wei 16:04, September 24, 2009 (PDT)
