    EA's 'Apex Legends' Could Expand To China With Tencent

    Tencent Holdings (OTC: TCEHY) is in talks to bring Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA)’s new U.S. hit "Apex Legends" to China, the South China Morning Post reported Friday. The move would give Tencent a video game distribution trifecta in China: the company already distributes "Fortnite" and PUBG Corp.’s "PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds." All three are “battle royale” games, which are the type of multiplayer online environments that are seen by observers as central to the future of the industry. The phenomenal early success of "Apex Legends" — it drew 25 million players its first week — has bolstered EA’s stock in recent days, bucking difficulties for the industry, which has seen stock volatility amid lackluster earnings reports.

    Under Armour Is Under Siege, but Constellation Brands, Activision Blizzard, and Walmart Are Humming

    After the stock pullback, our 7.3% five-year industry forecast is about 325 basis points or 1.75 times above the 4% five-year market-implied growth on our reverse analysis—as well as the developing story of Constellation’s significant investment in Canadian cannabis-products developer Canopy Growth. The maker and marketer of performance apparel and footwear delivered a low-quality fourth-quarter beat, with adjusted EPS of nine cents coming in ahead of our three-cent estimate and its consensus estimate at four cents. Gross margin expansion of some 160 basis points was also relatively in line with our estimate, reflecting mixed benefits (channel, region), lower product costs, lower promotions, and lower air freight.
