Company Description

Why We Like It:
It looks like video game giant ATVI may have found a bottom. Last week when the market was hitting new relative lows shares of ATVI were consolidating sideways between resistance at $12.00 and support at the 200-dma near $11.60. Today's market-wide surge higher has fueled a bullish breakout in ATVI.

If the market continues to rally I suspect ATVI will outperform. Shares certainly outperformed today with a +3.4% gain. I am suggesting small bullish positions tomorrow morning but only if both ATVI and the S&P 500 open positive. If the S&P 500 opens flat then we'll base our entry on the move in ATVI alone. I am suggesting a stop loss at $11.59. We will set our target for $13.45.
