Electronic Arts (EA) Hits New 52-Week High, Gains 85% YTD

Electronic Arts (EA, $26.96) shares today hit a new 52-week high at $27.92. So far
this year, the stock is up 85%.

In the September 2012 issue of Tech-Stock Prospector, we wrote about how the
videogame maker was getting back on track, building up its free to play business
while still benefiting from its core group of older titles. At the time, EA shares were
trading at just over $14.

Today, EA announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2, which was released last Thursday in
the Apple App Store on a free to play basis, has been downloaded more than 16
million times worldwide, making it the most successful mobile game launch in the
company’s history.

The title represents one of the biggest opening weekends in the App Store ever for a
mobile game.

In its first five days, Plants vs. Zombies 2 jumped to the #1 game position in the App
Store in 137 countries on either the iPad or iPhone charts.

I have revised upward my EA price target. Tech-Stock Prospector subscribers
