Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) stock sells at price-earnings ratio of 23x

Fundamentally, ATVI is not cheap: it sells at price-earnings ratio of 23x, but it’s not bloated either. The fall from grace shed a lot of the froth. The question to ask is if Activision stock has a chance to recapture its old glory.

The stock has two clear zones of trading, one above the $63 area and one below it. This rally brings the opportunity for a step change. But to be realistic, ledges this big leave a lot of resistance behind, so it won’t be easy. Luckily, these mini catalyst lines I shared today should at least be a start toward that end. On the downside, it’s important for ATVI to hold $44.75, so as to maintain the higher-low trend off the bottom.
