Take-Two Stocks

I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong area. Please go ahead and move it or, if you must, lock it if it isn't in the right place.

 

I've been looking at Take-Two stocks lately. Their stocks went up about 10 dollars on the 22nd due to the EA offer. Looking over their shares records for the past 2 years, they seem to keep in between 10 and 17 dollars most of the time. Take Two was the publisher of one of the largest Xbox 360 (and now PS3) RPG titles, Oblivion. Oblivion released on March 20th, 2006 and sold nearly 1.7 million copies for the Xbox 360 and PC in about a month. Take-Two's stocks didn't change much during that release. They stayed at around 15 or 16 dollars per share.

 

Now what I'm wondering (asking rather) is if anyone could give me some insight as to whether or not you think the GTA release would further improve Take-Two's stocks.

I'd sell pretty fast afterwards, no more real releases from them for a while.

I looked at their charts, and Take-two's stock went up the most when GTA was released on the XBOX 360 (not a fanboy, just the truth)....San Andreas and III/Vice City

 

The stock will soar, but then sell one week afterwards, because once it plateaus, then it'll go down quick

Uhh, Oblivion was made by Bethesda not Take 2.

Thank you.

 

Bethesda is a game developer, and so is Rockstar. Take-Two is a game publisher. They release the titles and promote them while game developers make the games.

 

@ sattizahn:

 

Yeah. I checked their stock history on Yahoo today and I'm thinking about investing in some shares, probably mid-March. Cool beans.

April 29th is on a Tuesday, not a Monday.

 

Seeing as how anticipated this game is (we all know the GTA franchise is one of the most popular gaming franchises around), I think stocks will go up as soon as TakeTwo release data on how many copies of GTA IV they've sold in the first month or something.

Yea dont do that. You wont even double your money. Let alone see a 50% increase. EA's Offer jumped their stock higher then GTA4 would have. If you werent on the bandwagon before this monday, dont even bother now.

Waiting would of made stock go up closer to release anyway. Cant have cold feet in the stock market. Two years ago I had bought 2 million shares of a start up TV Company, for pennies on the dollar. I let it sit for about 6-9 months, finally after countless f*ckups from the CEO I decided I would pull my money out at a tiny gain. Lo and behold 6 months later, HBO buys the company and shares rose to 1.50. Now of course it wasnt a 1:1 conversion, more like 100:1, I still lost out about $15000. Thats the stock market for you.

Bethesda was the dev, TT was the publisher, as is the case with R* and TT. I don't have shares in TT stock so...I'm not that impacted by this. I know, there's a lot of speculation as to how EA can screw up an excellent franchise...at this point, we can only hope, if this acquisition does take place, that they allow creative control to remain with those who have held it for this long.
