Just last week, Insaineeyesay tapped Take-Two as a particularly timely pick:
[W]ith grand theft auto 5 and max payne 3 coming out [in 2012], I plan to see good things. This team has been coming out with great stuff for at least 5-8 years. I love their games. I back them up. [S]imple as that.
Over the next five years, in fact, Take Two is expected to grow its bottom line at a rapid rate of 23% annually. That's faster than rivals Activision Blizzard (14%), Electronic Arts (19%), and Microsoft (10%).
CAPS member F111Driver expands on the opportunity:
Looking for a significant bounce when they launch the next version of Grand Theft Auto in the fall of 2012. This is mainly a cyclical play, betting on the huge success of the GTA franchise. Like [Activision] and Call Of Duty except that [Take-Two] derives significantly more earnings [relatively from GTA]. ... I'm in with real money and plan on holding until shortly after launch results of GTA affect the price move.
