Summary: Activision (ATVI) is a speculative stock combining computer technology and interactive entertainment. The stock should do well if it continues to refresh and update their current game offerings but will do great if it will invest some of that positive cash flow to develop new and even more spectacular games in the future. If the analysts sales and earnings projections materialize I look for investors entering at this price level to see an 18% - 23% annual total return over the next 5 year period. I know those projections seem wide but we are talking products that must attract the fad crazed youth market. To succeed there you must stay ahead of the curve.
