Kicking out the carjacker
Shares of Take-Two Interactive
Sure, not every company is a perfect match. But I still don't get the market's reaction to the news. Take-Two isn't Yahoo!
That didn't stop the market from giving Take-Two the Microhoo treatment. Down it went, and the heart-wrenchingly rocky market didn't help. However, with Wall Street projections recently inching higher for the company, on the strength of the Grand Theft Auto and BioShock franchises, is there a better value out there on the market?
With analysts expecting Take-Two to earn $2.10 a share this year -- and the stock in the mid-teens -- Take-Two is sporting a 2008 P/E multiple in the single digits. That's not just cheap. To borrow the premise of its flagship auto-theft game, it's a steal.
