    Reality Will Eventually Hit World Wrestling Entertainment Stock

    World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE) stock highlights the very real importance of not letting your biases impact your judgment. I learned that the hard way. Last year, I wrote a disparaging article about WWE stock.Source: Shutterstock Later, I followed that up with a muted, but nevertheless bearish, assessment. Both columns turned out to be wrong. * 7 Small-Cap Stocks That Make the Grade In my defense, I think most (reasonable) people would cut me some slack. We're talking about scripted events during which grown men - and sometimes women - prance around like idiots, engaging in fake conflicts. Combatants exchange words, and fists start flying. Invariably, out of the blue someone comes running out with a chair.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis is either a scene from Facebook's (NASDAQ:FB) boardroom discussions or the catalyst for the inexplicable rise of WWE stock price. At least if someone had secretly recorded an executive-level meltdown at the social-media firm, I would understand why watching it would be a guilty pleasure.WWE? Forgive me, folks, but I just don't get it.But I made the same mistake when I initially analyzed WWE stock. Sure, I had hard facts to back me up, such as declining TV viewership. Also, sports-related stocks, such as Manchester United (NYSE:MANU), haven't historically performed well.Unfortunately, I didn't appreciate that the people who care about pro-wrestling tend to be extremely fanatical. Of course, executives at Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) had a much more open mind than I did. They inked a deal to broadcast SmackDown Live on the Fox network , launching the WWE stock price to the moon.WWE stock price dropped during the market meltdown at the end of last year, but the shares recovered in 2019 with the rest of the market, and WWE stock price is up nearly 24% in 2019. The WWE Stock Price Will Meet a Flying ChairAs I previously mentioned, World Wrestling Entertainment follows a script. Part of its allure is that audiences don't know what to expect.However, if you watch enough episodes of WWE Raw, you'll soon recognize a pattern. You don't know who's going to throw a cheap shot, but someone will. And you don't know what the weapon of choice will be, but more likely than not, it will be a folding chair.This is a perfect analogy for what's in store for WWE stock. I don't know exactly when the proverbial chair is coming, nor do I know who will launch it. But at some point, the high-flying anomaly that is WWE stock will undergo a correction.I say this with reasonable confidence because the company is racing against the demographic clock. For any entertainment operation to be relevant, it must attract young people. WWE did exactly that…30 years ago. Currently, it's reaping the consequences of not effectively courting new viewers.According to TheSportsDaily.com, the wrestling league is most popular among the 50-plus crowd. Another worrisome factor is that WWE doesn't genuinely appeal to minorities. As Forbes' contributor Alfred Konuwa reported, the league has a poor record with black wrestlers. According to one of his embarrassing facts, the last African-American to headline the flagship WrestleMania event was Lawrence Taylor.I love the original "LT," but that factoid is simply insane. What Konuwa is saying without saying it is that the WWE is getting whiter, while the nation is becoming browner. Again, this dynamic shows you how out of touch the league is with reality. Don't Think About Shorting WWE StockAfter reading about the demographic problems that may soon catch up with WWE stock, you may be tempted to short it. But please take my failures in trying to assess WWE stock to heart: this is a weird stock.Under any other circumstances, this sports-related stock shouldn't perform that well. Sports viewership overall has declined, so why should interest in "fake" sports increase? Also, it's the WWE! I wish I could add some expletives to further express my exasperation.But there's one factor you must realize: the league's core fans have stayed with the program through thick and thin. Yes, they may be grayer, but they're also far richer. They can afford to plunk down thousands to watch their childhood heroes in person.So while I'm not crazy about World Wrestling Entertainment, I've also learned my lesson. WWE is as terrible as you think it is, and probably worse. But for now, it's being kept alive by people who love it.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Game On for These 3 Gaming Stocks

    One of the biggest trends in global entertainment is online video games. Based on the latest projections from Goldman Sachs, leading video game stocks have a long runway of growth ahead. Goldman analyst Michael Ng estimates the worldwide gaming market is worth about $135 billion and is growing at a high-single-digit pace, including PC, console and mobile revenue.Gaming has been transitioning from offline to online for years now. However, Goldman estimates 30% of gaming still takes place offline, a lower-margin business than online. Mobile gaming, esports, streaming services, subscription models and penetration of the China market are all potential long-term bullish catalysts for gaming stocks. * 5 Airline Stocks In Serious Trouble Ng recently surveyed the gaming stock space, which has been red-hot in recent years. Here are the three gaming stocks where Goldman sees the most upside.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Gaming Stocks to Buy: Take-Two Interactive (TTWO)Source: Via RockstarTake-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) stock tanked following the company's third-quarter earnings report in early February despite putting up some impressive numbers. The CEO even said the company "crushed the quarter." What gives?Take-Two released Red Dead Redemption 2 in the third quarter. By almost any measure, the game was a huge success. Take-Two has sold 23 million copies of the game, making it one of the most successful launches in recent memory. The critical reviews of the game have been so good that it will likely have staying power as well. However, the market may have had expectations for the game that there's simply no way it could live up to.Ng recently said Red Dead Redemption 2 and its several anticipated expansions should continue to boost Take-Two's bottom line in the near-term. In the longer-term, Ng said Grand Theft Auto VI will likely be released in fiscal 2022 or 2023 and drive at least $7 in earnings power for TTWO stock.In the meantime, Ng said in-game monetization of NBA2K will offset declining unit sales. WWE2K revenue should also get a boost from new TV deals from World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE). Despite the sell-off, Goldman has a "buy" rating and $130 price target for TTWO stock. Activision-Blizzard (ATVI)Source: Shutterstock Like Take-Two, Activision-Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) stock has taken a pounding in 2019, down 43% in the past six months. Activision also reported relatively strong fourth-quarter numbers last month. However, investors keyed in on what they saw as weak 2019 guidance. Activision also announced it would be cutting its global workforce in an effort to manage costs.Like Red Dead Redemption, Activision's smash hit Call of Duty: Black Ops was a huge success upon launch in October. Call of Duty drove double-digit quarter-over-quarter growth in Activision's monthly active users in the fourth quarter, which grew to 53 million. PC sales of the game tripled those of the franchise's previous installment, thanks in part to its "Blackout" battle royale mode. Battle royale games were the top trend in gaming in 2018, led by Fortnite and its $3 billion in profits.While Activision likely has another major catalyst in 2021 with Diablo 4, it can also benefit in the meantime from monetization of Call of Duty. Ng said the game's progression-based awards system and DLC available exclusively via passes will help drive revenue per user. * 7 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy Without another major game release coming in 2019, Goldman has only a "neutral" rating for ATVI stock. However, after the recent sell-off, there is nearly 20% upside to Goldman's $50 target. Zynga (ZNGA)Source: Shutterstock Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) is the fastest-growing mobile gaming platform in the world. Zynga ended 2018 at an annual bookings run-rate of $1 billion. But unlike Activision or Take-Two, Zynga has nine new game launches on the calendar over the next two years. Zynga's so-called "bold beats" updates to its top franchises include "Legends" for CSR2, "Tile Styles" for Words With Friends and "World Poker Tour" for Zynga Poker.These bold beats updates increase both player retention and player engagement, according to Ng.In addition to the bold beats updates, Zynga has major new product launches piggy backing off of licensing deals with Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Star Wars. New game launches are historically difficult and unpredictable. However, Ng said these new games could be the exception to the rule."Although we recognize the inherent difficulty in launching a successful mobile game, the content licenses and data-driven approach to marketing spend should help increase the likelihood of success," Ng said.Unlike Activision and Take-Two, ZNGA stock has been on fire in 2019, gaining 31% on the year. While the big run limits upside to Goldman's $5.30 price target, Ng said Zynga has a potential buyout valuation of $6. At a market cap of just $4.4 billion and significant exposure to the fastest-growing segment of the gaming industry, it wouldn't be surprising to see Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) or another big company with cash to spend snatch up Zynga at some point in the near future.As of this writing, Wayne Duggan did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
