Another angle On Activision Blizzard

The company has a beta of 0.3051. Let's try to break down what Activision's beta means in this case. As returns on the market increase, Activision Blizzard returns are expected to increase less than the market. However, during the bear market, the loss on holding Activision Blizzard will be expected to be smaller as well. The beta indicator helps investors understand whether Activision Blizzard moves in the same direction as the rest of the market, and how volatile (i.e., risky) it is compared to the market (i.e., selected benchmark). In other words, if Activision deviates very little from the market, it does not add much risk to the portfolio, but it also doesn't increase the expected returns. Activision Blizzard reported the previous year's revenue of 7.36 B. Net Income was 1.67 B with profit before overhead, payroll, taxes, and interest of 6.49 B.

Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market.

This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Our Final Perspective on Activision Blizzard

While some companies in the electronic gaming & multimedia industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Activision Blizzard may not be performing as strong as the other in terms of long-term growth potentials.

From a slightly different point of view, the entity appears to be undervalued. Our ongoing 90 days buy vs. sell advice on the company is Strong Buy.
