    When it comes to the impact on stocks, Goldman said it was all about margins, adding that some companies were protecting margins by passing higher costs along to their consumers.

    The strategists, led by David Kostin, said companies with low pricing power have historically outperformed when S&P 500 profit margins are expanding. In contrast, companies with high pricing power have “sharply lagged” during the past year. However, rising inflation could mean that is about to change, and companies with high pricing power are set to benefit, the strategists said.

    Goldman screened for stocks with high pricing power — high and stable gross margins relative to sector peers. The screen produced 55 stocks, including videogames company Activision Blizzard ATVI, +0.38%, tobacco giant Philip Morris PM, +0.35%, consumer-goods companies Colgate-Palmolive CL, +0.48% and Procter & Gamble PG, +0.40%, and drug manufacturer Zoetis ZTS, +1.66%. Technology companies, such as Aspen Technology AZPN, +0.22%, Adobe ADBE, +0.39% and Oracle ORCL, +0.71%, and retailers Etsy ETSY, -0.20% and Dollar General DG, +1.15% also featured.

    I may now say I told you so. Even at this price it will be going up 10-20% this year and quite possibly more. They announce Diablo this fall and I pick $140.

    Crash Bandicoot Mobile is lots of fun. The reason for its success in my opinion is the game works exactly like the console versions but offers smooth easy controlls for mobile. There are a lot of mobile games I refuse to.play because of controls being so bad. This is lrobably why thre is a lot.of *hate* amongst many gamers regarding mobile. It is tough to pull.it off in action games especially. Controls will be a bigfactor.for Diablo Immortal, if the game controls well then it should succeed. Glad to.see King Digital behind this game. They understand that controls make or break a mobile game. As fast paced as a Crash game is, getting the controls right is a challenge and they did it. Game is fun. There are some bug fixing issues King will.have to take care of for older smart phones. The game seems fine on my top of the line new phone. Bought my new phone with expectations that games are getting more advanced.

    Crash Bandicoot and Hearthstone news this week. So many more, and larger, levers to pull in the coming weeks. Earnings call on 5/4 should be great.

    ATVI should already be a $100-$105 stock. Solid management, solid revenues & EPS( conservative guidance always) , and EPORTS & MOBILE will propel ATVI to $120-$130. LONG ATVI since 2206.

    Why is ATVI SO volatile? Dropped way more than peers today. They said yesterday they will beat their guided earnings. I believe they will crush earnings. Not worried as this is a VERY solid stock and has lots of positive news ahead. Just annoyed...

    See J? You come on here denigrating ATVI and next day the share price jumps. Had I decided oh yea J s totally clrrect here....everything will flop or something and we t and sold off my shares in after hours market, Inwould be missig out on this. That is why you can't assume your personal opinions on things are all that important. Investors invest on the big broader picture which is where and how is ATVI making money? Where are the trends? Business strategy? No one has.to be a video gamer cause investing decisions are not about whether we liked Shadowlands as a video gae exoansion or not. It is whether we.think ATVI's mobile strategy is a good one and how we feel about ATVI's share price valuation....growth potential, track record, return on capital, etc.

    No idea whay ANYONE would sell at this price. I am fully loaded now and waiting for the rebound. This stock will be over $100 this year and to be honest I expect $120-130 as the analysts will continue to increase forecast price as ATVI announces Diablo and management continues to beat earnings.

    I care less about Blizzard's games and more about ATVIs CEO getting a $200 million cash bonus. Sure he did a good job but Jesus that's a lot of dough. It's completely unnecessary and kinda tone deaf frankly.
