On CAPS, 97% of the 7,133 members who have rated Activision believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Googlespooch, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Despite labor problems in the past and the issues of beating out smartphone/tablet games, I believe that Activision Blizzard is well positioned to continue to exert dominance in the gaming sphere. They have consistently been able to get high quality games released every year like clockwork without sacrificing the integrity of the titles.

In addition, they occupy a position as one of the largest game developers, which gives them access to more resources to produce even better games. In addition, their competition has been weak lately with companies like EA hitting stumbling blocks.

Finally, I think that it is overly zealous to claim that smartphones and tablets are going to kill console gaming. ... In the end, I seriously think that Activision Blizzard will be able to overcome the current forces and prosper. Besides, they have a decent dividend to reduce short pressure.
