$1.2 billion offer irresistible for racing games developer

Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) has announced an agreement to acquire British racing game publisher Codemasters Group Holdings PLC (LSE:CDM) with an offer of approximately $1.2 billion that far surpasses an offer from Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. (TTWO).

In early November, Codemasters and Take-Two settled up on an agreement valued at close to $1 billion. EA upped the ante with a counteroffer that would give Codemasters shareholders 604 pence ($7.96) in cash for each ordinary share of Codemasters according to a press release from EA. The deal is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.

Electronic Arts (EA) reported an over +70% increase in bookings during the quarter as the Company's video game titles like FIFA, Madden, and Apex Legends benefitted from increased engagement during the pandemic. While the market expects results to decelerate from these levels, we continue to believe the Company possesses plenty of growth drivers, including several new franchise titles, a once-in-a-decade new console cycle, and the launch of its game development platform as a service, currently dubbed "Project Atlas."

The company is having a strong run with two successfully acquisitions of Turkish gaming studios in 2020

After a particularly rough patch following its 2011 IPO, Zynga Inc (ZNGA) has managed to stabilize as a company and become a leading player in mobile gaming with a management strategy based on a combination of solid in-house game development and pertinent strategic acquisitions.

The past few months have been mixed for the company. While the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in increased game time and significant growth in in-app purchases, it also resulted in advertisers slashing budgets, which affected ad revenues. Also, Apple's new policy to curb access to users' unique Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) could have

A rare low-risk model to capitalize on gaming content

To most people, Britain is probably not the first country one would think of in regards to the entrepreneurial spirit. However, while browsing through the country's listed companies, we found a sizable pool of high-quality companies that can balance growth and return so well as to create tremendous wealth for shareholders.

In some of our previous articles, we covered a couple of "young" public companies from the UK, including Bioventix (LSE:BVXP), Fever-tree Drinks (LSE:FEVR) and Craneware (LSE:CRW). In our opinion, they share the common traits of strong business fundamentals, being led by founding members and possessing an entrepreneurial culture. While

10 stocks that will propel the portfolio over the next year

When will my Bunny Portfolio show some energy?

This is a theoretical portfolio that I compile each December. To be eligible, a stock must have an average earnings growth rate of 25% or better the past five years, and yet sell for 12 times earnings or less.

That’s anomalous, of course. Stocks with fine growth don’t usually sell cheap. It means that investors think the stock has hit a wall, or soon will.

Past results don't guarantee future performance, but they may enhance the likelihood of investment success

The S&P 500 index has increased its annual earnings per share (not inflation-adjusted) by 9.4% on average every year since the year ended Dec. 31, 2015. As a result of this, the share price of the benchmark for the U.S. stock market has risen approximately 50.4% in the past five years to $3,066.91 at close on Friday.

The past doesn’t provide any guarantee for future performance, but companies that have grown their earnings at a similar or even higher pace than the index should bear a high potential to beat most of their peers and show solid returns, as earnings
