The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion, with host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser, James Early, and Ron Gross.
In this segment, Activision Blizzard's (NASDAQ: ATVI ) fourth-quarter earnings came in higher than expected. The video game maker also raised guidance on first-quarter profits, which brought shares up by more than 7% on Friday morning. The guys discuss why the leader in the video game world has such a stagnant stock price that's always stuck in neutral.
Video game makers, like Activision Blizzard, that offer the classical video game business model are what really bring unusual business models like Zynga's into question. Zynga's post-IPO performance has been dreadful, and investors are beginning to wonder if it's "game over" for this newly-public company. Being so closely tied to the world's largest social network can be a blessing and a curse.
