Not sure why I closed this underpreform to begin with. I was almost going to give it a green thumb seeing as how it's actually turning a small profit and we're headed into videogame money time of the year.

But screw it, videogame sales are on the decline. MS and Sony haven't revealed new consoles. Are we headed toward a 1984 videogame market crash? I'm inclined to think so. At least a continued pullback.

This company is also up to it's eyeballs in debt. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

With their numbers, THQI is either going for bankruptcy, acquisition, or up. Therefore, the real question is; should you bet against bankruptcy?

They have good products that are selling (3rd Street Saints, Red Faction, Darksiders, South Park Franchise). They are facing a class action lawsuit but these tend to be much louder than damaging. I don't believe THQ is at death's door just yet; Outperform.

$.63? I'll take it. They put out a quality title at least once a year.

Pure spec play, possible merger or takeover, also might pick-up as new products are released

Company is currently redirecting the ship. By cutting the fat internally and focusing on core AAA games and eliminating licensed kids games; looking at their current releases successes and the pipeline into 2013, expect this undervalued stock to gain 150% to 200% late 2012

THQ, Inc is in a tough spot. They have 3 best selling games, but too much chaff doesn't bode too well. The company has a tradition of playing it too easy, imho, to make a resurgence. I expect sales of their product to drop off >15% for year ending 2012.

From their latest Quarterly report:

"We expect to record these charges of up to $45.0 million, in the aggregate, during the second quarter of fiscal 2012 as actions are completed and facilities vacated."

It appears that the stock has been falling lately because next quarter the company is going to recording an expense that is 50% the size of all expenses for the previous quarter. My guess is that this is why the stock has been pushed down so far over the last quarter.

The problem with my hypothesis is that the majority of the fall came two weeks before 10-Q was released.

Giving the low price of 1.80$/share + the new Montreal studio and big titles upcoming... it's a bargain

Unbelievable just how badly THQ has been killed. It's as if everyone was shocked when the company reported a quarterly loss this past quarter. If you look historically, they almost always report losses in two of their four quarters. THQ is still stuck selling CD video games as opposed to digital media, so that does hamper their sales, but on the all they should be profitable to the tune of $0.10-$0.20 for the year by my estimates. Tons and tons of cash in the coffers and a forward P/E under 9. Keep in mind this is a company that raised its forecast for the second half of the year. Absolute bargain basement pricing here.

I have to feel this guy is a little over sold in the short term on the Homefront FAIL. Long term I am not so confident on its prospects.

THQ is in an increasingly-overcrowded video game market and relies primarily on TV and movie license-driven content, which historically has produced poor products and low revenues. Its chief liability is its comparative lack of exposure to online gaming. Its one saving grace may be the Warhammer 40K license, which may improve once more details of the forthcoming movie Ultramarines are announced, but all indications point to a limited-release or straight-to-DVD release, which would be a serious waste of a potentially lucrative license. This suggests to me a management mentality favoring short-term profits and an inability to fuly develop the potential of their intellectual capital.

Right now people are economically hurting so video game sales are down. Nevertheless, video games are a solid staple that, once the economy begins to return, will be in high demand again. This makes for a temporary 'sale' on many of the video game stocks like THQI that will pay off nicely when things come back around. Furthermore, THQI is consistently working out deals with big names like Dreamworks.

Turnaround. The company has cut costs by closing studios and has strong growing brands in UFC and WWE games. Once the company estabilishes its profitability again - which should be quicker than most analysts think - this company's shares should double.
