(ATVI) Underperforming the rally...hmm



April 09, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: ATVI

Why is ATVI underperforming today's rally?  Who cares... I bought 30 shares of ATVI today when it was up only 4 pennies.  That tells me Investors are underestimating the extreme BULLISH-ness of

"PROTOTYPE"  =  You can play as a Supervillain!!! (I think) *OMG* That's kewl.

I remember several games where you were the villain... I mean Grand Theft Auto = Villain..Dungeon Keeper = Villain.... Godfather = Villain....Scarface = Villain... All of these titles sold lots of copies.

That's right... Investors probably have no clue how insanely excited I am as a Hard Core Video Gamer over this title.  I want to and I will BUY  PROTOTYPE as well as Wolverine and Ultimate Alliance and Starcraft II and Diablo III and...and...and... and...  Man I love Activision :-)

Don't crowd the stock with buys today.. If you want to increase your share total feel free but don't over due it... Plenty of patience to perhaps get the stock on a down day for less.

I'm still holding out to buy ATVI. Bliz will announce at least 10 delays each for the two games im going to buy : SC2 and D3. So i plan to short when all the news hits and then long the crash before the big run-up from amazing sales.

I did a little bit of balancing my portfolio today by selling one of my stocks that seemed a bit too high priced and buying my first shares of ATVI. The price earnings ratio of ATVI seems high but I'm hoping the company can triple its market cap over the next few years. This is one of my few investments that I don't feel ecstatic about. I'm really relying on the research of others with this one and hope they know what they are talking about. I suppose I'm buying it mainly out of greed. If the earnings explode and the stock price doubles in a year, I don't want to miss out.

Buy and hold on this one. It's a growth stock, displacing EA as the gaming leader. Compare the two companies and come up with a reasonable valuation, and you'll see how underpriced ATVI still really is.

Seriously?  ATVI's share price is going to crash over mere game release delays? That would awesome.  I certainly hope it does as I'd love to build my share count back at the single digit mark.

MY ATVI (Long) strategy has been to not even worry about looking for the absolute best share price.  I buy ATVI less than $11 a share..... After $11, that's my cut-off point to not bother buying more shares of ATVI.

But.. I suppose I'd increase my buy limit once Starcraft II's release date is set in stone.  Even then.. I don't see myself going above $12.50 for ATVI.
