Take-Two Falls Despite Monster Holiday GTA V Sales

Despite reporting a phenomenal quarter in sales of its hit game Grand Theft Auto V, shares of Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) fell nearly 10% after it announced earnings Monday. The problem here is the future. While GTA V is delivering strong sales for the company now, it could be another five years before Take-Two's next Grand Theft Auto game, and investors are worried about what will fill the gap. In addition, GTA V is still not available on the two new next generation consoles that were just released late last year, the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4.

In this video from Thursday's Consumer Countdown, Motley Fool consumer goods analysts Mark Reeth and Mike Finarelli dig into Take-Two, where it stands today, and what the future looks like for the company. Mark discusses why the market might be viewing this company incorrectly, and points to how frequently the company releases games, and some of the strong offerings it may have waiting in the wings at the moment. While he's not a buyer today, he says he'll be watching this company closely, to see how well it can prove itself on the new consoles.

So how else can investors profit from the coming war for your TV screen?
You know cable's going away. But do you know how to profit? There's $2.2 trillion out there to be had. Currently, cable grabs a big piece of it. That won't last. And when cable falters, three companies are poised to benefit. Click here for their names. Hint: They're not Netflix, Google, and Apple.
