    Owners of Take-Two Stock Likely to Focus on Its Top Line

    Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) is slated to report its earnings for its fourth quarter on Monday, May 13 after the market closes. After TTWO stock fell sharply in the wake of its Q3 earnings report in February, the shares have rebounded.Source: Photo from Take-Two TTWO stock may move again after the company reports its results next week for its quarter that ended in March. Given the uncertainty as to the company's direction, I think investors should wait until after its earnings before making any moves with Take-Two stock. * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips Investors Will Likely Focus on the Company's RevenueFor TTWO's Q4, analysts, on average, expect the company to report earnings per share of 75 cents. In the same quarter last year, TTWO's EPS came in at 70 cents.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAnalysts' consensus revenue estimate is $506 million, 23% above the year-ago figure of $411.37 million. Despite the expected significant increase in the company's top line, the consensus estimate is significantly below the $530 million to $580 million guidance that the company issued back in February.When I wrote a column about TTWO stock in December, I said it was underappreciated, given its fundamentals. I also urged investors to be cautious about TTWO stock. My warning turned out to be accurate, as TTWO stock has lost almost 16% of its value since the earnings report it issued in February. Most blamed the selloff of Take-Two stock on analysts' falling Q4 revenue estimates.TTWO stock did not find a bottom until briefly dipping below $85 per share on Feb. 27. For the most part, it has steadily moved higher since then, recovering most of the value it had lost in the wake of its earnings report. A Different Approach on In-Game PurchasesOne has to assume that investors will focus on the company's revenue. The gaming industry and mobile-gaming companies, such as Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) and Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU), in particular, depend heavily on in-game purchases. Even TTWO's long-time peers, such as Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) and Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA), have increasingly embraced this model.Activision now earns the majority of its revenue from these transactions. However, Take-Two has stood out by depending less on in-game purchase than many of its peers. In recent quarters, TTWO has only earned about one-third of its revenue from in-game purchases.TTWO stock may have been hurt by the company's position. However, this stand reminds me of Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) refusing to charge its passengers for every checked bag. In the long run, a company can earn some goodwill among its customers by declning to "nickel and dime" them. Evaluate TTWO Stock Based on Its Strengths and ValuationTake-Two has also remained true to its strengths. It has avoided mobile gaming completely and still derives around 85% of its revenue from console-based games. The rest of the company's revenue comes from PC-based games.But I still think investors need to look at the valuation of TTWO stock. Its 20.4 forward price-earnings ratio represents a multi-year low. Moreover, TTWO stock has surged in recent years. It traded below $10 per share as late as 2012, before peaking at almost $140 per share late last fall.Today, it trades at about $100 per share. I think that's a fair valuation for TTWO stock. Consequently, I would not buy Take-Two stock ahead of its earnings. But if TTWO stock drops sharply again following the report, traders should consider buying the shares. Final Thoughts on TTWO StockLast quarter's post-report selloff and investors' concerns about TTWO's revenue indicate that traders should not buy TTWO stock before it reports its results.Take-Two's profits probably rose last quarter. Despite analysts' falling revenue projections, TTWO's revenue probably rose at least 10% from its year-ago levels.However, investors have expressed concern about Take-Two's reluctance to depend heavily on in-game purchases. Its dependence on console games and older gaming franchises has also caused some unease among the owners of TTWO stock.Still, I think these practices embody sticking to strengths and building goodwill. Consequently, I would prefer TTWO stock over ATVI or EA despite those stocks' similar multiples. However, with TTWO's forward PE ratio of just over 2 and the Street's reticence about its revenues, I think investors should avoid buying TTWO ahead of its earnings.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

    Earnings Were Strike Three for Activision Stock

    It's not Atari. But a third strike for guidance from Activision (NASDAQ:ATVI) does point to a 'game over' situation for ATVI bulls and a playable short for Activision stock bears.I've said it before and I'll say it again, it would be hard to imagine Activision stock going bankrupt like 1980's gaming sensation Atari. With about 2.5 billion people gaming globally and growing steadily -- as well as new trends like mobile, eSports and emerging free-to-play titles -- the secular prospects for gaming and for one of the industry's giants simply look too strong over the long haul.Still, Activision's short-term hardships shouldn't be ignored either. This past week the company beat Street profit and sales views, but both its top and bottom-lines also shrank year-over-year. Possibly worse, the report also marked ATVI stock's third straight sales whiff or strike regarding guidance.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips It's obvious Activision stock is in need of a reset of sorts. But amid intense industry competition from rivals Take Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO), Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA) and Epic Games, with no immediate game-changing product launches to help break the slump for ATVI, a third strike on the price chart doesn't look favorable either, unless you're a bear. Activision Stock Daily Chart Click to EnlargeWithout a catalyst, InvestorPlace's Will Healy recently predicted ATVI stock will remain rangebound. I can appreciate the logic. But volatile stocks like Activision don't generally just bide their time for months and months on end. I'd surmise that by the time we see a frustrating congestion pattern as going nowhere, that's typically when it's closer to over than not. And for ATVI stock, that 'over' is unlikely to please bulls.Technically, and bearing in mind Activision's existing difficulties off the price chart, a closer inspection of ATVI stock's range bound activity looks increasingly like a strikeout situation for bulls. The latest warning from the company took shares from a position of potential strength within a possible uptrend which began in early February -- and into a position of weakness.ATVI's post-earnings reaction pressure has put shares back beneath two key trend-lines and once again finds the stock struggling with the 50% retracement level dating back to 2012. That's potentially bad news. And with stochastics rolling over, the price action looks even more questionable for bulls.Possibly worse, Activision stock's daily uptrend looks a lot like a weekly chart bear flag setting up for a bearish short. Activision Stock Weekly Chart Click to EnlargeThe larger time frame of ATVI stock reveals a weekly doji high has signaled to the downside this week. If traders are agreeable Activision's uptrend could also be a bearish flag pattern, coupled with an overbought stochastics on the weekly chart and ATVI's other discussed warning signs; it's our contention bears maintain the home field advantage. Activision Stock Short PositionMy advice for shorting ATVI is to wait for shares to drop back beneath this week's low of $46 which narrowly breached the prior week's doji low of $46.16.For containing risk, I'd initially use a blended stop price of $48.79. That amounts to exposure of 6% and marginally above the bodies of the past few weeks' worth of candles. And in our estimation it also smartly allows bears to play ball in a game that favors playing, but also not overstaying one's welcome.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.
