Insights: Bullish Stocks

Video Game Stocks Breaking Out; Buy SE-US, EA-US, ATVI-US, ZNGA-US, CDR-PL, UBI-FR, and 9697-JP

Video game stocks have been a major focus of ours for several months with the space outperforming the broad market amid the coronavirus pandemic. The stay at home theme remains in full force and with most of the space breaking out simultaneously, it gives us added confidence that price and RS appreciation is likely just getting started.

· We believe the strength in video game stocks is not a flash in the pan. These companies are getting a boost from consumers staying at home, but we believe gaming habits are likely to persist even when stay-at-home orders are lifted. Additionally, a second spike in infections remains a risk and a distinct possibility.

· Importantly, price is confirming our bullish thesis. This is depicted by the price breakout and RS uptrend in the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming & eSports ETF (ESPO)... see chart below. When the Group and several individual names are breaking out simultaneously, it dramatically increases our confidence that the Group is poised for continued outperformance.

· In today's report we highlight our favorite technical setups, all offering compelling and timely opportunities to add exposure at current levels. Buy: SE-US (our favorite setup), EA-US, ATVI-US, ZNGA-US, CDR-PL, UBI-FR, and 9697-JP... see pages 2-5.
