I am not a gamer.
I have never owned Electronic Arts. No good reason. Big Woops (mistake) on my part.
Our show today at Wallstrip focuses on the gamers and “Madden” football. An amazing brand within a brand for sure.
I have avoided gaming stocks mainly because they seem like Hollywood entertainment companies and am always worried about seasonal sales and a big bad gaming miss. I think things are a little different now that the industry is as stable as ever, you have global gamers and you have a GIANT resale and exchange market at the game retailers like Gamestop.
I may just buy a few shares if Electronic Arts pushes past $60 to an all-time high. NOTE – Activision is trading very close to all-time highs as well. Hmmmm.
Speaking of Madden, I was watching Letterman the other night and was crying at Frank Caliendo doing impersonations. Thanks YouTube for making the search simple. The perfect Madden impersonation:
PS – The first kid in the McDonald’s commercial after today’s Electronic Arts show looks exactly like a Young Tiger Woods. Freaky!
