All of my key indicators are pointing at this one as a buy. Plus, how could a leading video game company be very risky given the ubiquity of computers for generations to come?

Video games are big business and few do it like Activision.

The EA sports of battles. This company's games could be considered the wire tapping unit of the devil with an eye for profitability. With a leaked version of Warcraft someplace in existence, I might see 30 a share on the beast of an entertainment company. ATVI, God bless you in a real war.

While slightly overvalued, it otherwise looks like a top performer. Coupled with a decent dividend, it's hard to beat.

It's a very successful publisher of such popular video game franchises as "Call of Duty" & "Angry Birds", among others. This company has plenty of room to grow, and will be publishing and releasing amazing game titles for years to come.

I'm new to the stock world, but more than familiar with the gaming world.

As proven time and time again, Activision Blizzard is a top dog in the gaming realm. ATVI has been about as consistent as is possible in an industry that's as fresh as gaming. With continued upcoming content in platform games, WoW expansions, Hearthstone likely becoming a large player in mobile gaming, and not to mention new games entirely, I don't see Activision Blizzard leaving us anytime soon.

Many great sequels to come. Three strong franchise games and kids and young adults are now gamers!

Weaknesses: Skylanders has intense competition from Disney's Infinity products. Considering Disney has its brand of Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney characters, this cash cow may stop producing rich milk. Furthermore, World of Warcraft has a declining subscription base. The margins are still rich, but less cash to go around.

Strengths: ATVI seems to have cash in the bank and innovation on its side. Let me start with innovation. I remember Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, and Skylanders in recent memory. I do remember them trying to blur the lines with Apocolypse (a Bruce Willis game). They are trying new things constantly and succeeds with them. I would venture to say their culture wants them to innovate to increase earnings.

In addition to innovation, Destiny is a huge draw. They've already sold out of their special edition games and they have three ways to make money in the following year: Game launch, Christmas, and PC launch in 2015.

As for World of Warcraft, they have the expansion pack coming in the winter. While this will not gain new subscribers back to its peak of 10MM, but it will halt the decline, which will keep the margin rich game producing money for its next innovative project.

Lastly, their foray into the casual gaming market. They leveraged their World of Warcraft brand into Hearthstone. Though it doesn't do superior sales like everything else, they do have an opportunity to capitalize on that brand, which can support other merchandising efforts. With each game out, you have an opportunity to sell its brand more: shirts, books, movies (upcoming WoW movie), toys, etc. They just brand with games that can make money.

In the next two to four years, I can see another Destiny game, I can see World of Warcraft taking a more innovative gaming approach other than MMO and casual gaming, and I can see more partnerships with Hollywood.

Consistent and low-risk company in high-risk industry. Has stable sources of revenue in series and new products like Hearthstone offer attractive future growth.
