NEW YORK,  February 19, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting
Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA),
Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), MicroStrategy Inc. (NASDAQ:
MSTR) and TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX). Today's readers may access these

Activision Blizzard, Inc. Research Report

Video game publisher Activision Blizzard saw its shares grow by as much as 16
percent this month on the wake of its strong earnings report amid the strong
showing of its best selling franchises Call of Duty and Skylanders, with revenue
coming in at  $2.6 billion  and adjusted earnings per share of  78 cents. The
shares are expected to go further up with the release of its highly-anticipated
StarCraft II sequel, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. However, declining sales
of PCs and the rising popularity of tablets and smartphones could pose a threat
to the company moving forward, but the upcoming Xbox and PlayStation consoles
from Microsoft and Sony should still bring in more profits in the coming years.

Electronic Arts Inc. Research Report

Multi-platform video game developer Electronic Arts posted its Q3 2013 results
with revenue declining nearly 7 percent year over year due to increasing
competition, but still managed to post earnings per share of  57 cents  thanks
to its high margin digital revenue and strict cost management. Sales of FIFA 13
helped boost the revenue with over 12 million units for the quarter, or 23
percent more than FIFA 12. In addition, the sales help bring down EA's losses to
just  $45 million  compared to  $205 million  the year before. Moving forward,
the company will be focusing more on its stronger titles such as Battlefield and
improving its popular Star Wars: The Old Republic. Electronic Arts is set to
release more titles soon, rife with micro-transaction features that could earn
additional income for the company. The Full Research Report on Electronic Arts

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Research Report

Take-Two Interactive, global video game developer, marketer, and publisher, saw
its shares jump 2.49 percent after announcing good Q3 results, which also beat
expectations. GAAP net revenue came in at  $415.8 million  compared to  $236.3
million  year over year, while GAAP net income from operations is  $70.9 million
 or  66 cents  per share. The numbers were brought onto by the record-shattering
launch of NBA 2K13, Take-Two's newest installment of its popular basketball
franchise, which sold 4.5 million copies. Other games like Borderlands 2 and
XCOM: Enemy Unknown contributed to the strong results as well, including strong
holiday sales. In addition, news of  China  considering lifting its 13-year ban
on video games could post sales in the future, considering the market potential.

TIBCO Software Inc. Research Report

Tibco, provider of middleware and infrastructure software, helped put health
care and temporary staffing provider back above support at its 10-week moving
average with its stock performance as of late. The company predates cloud in the
industry, so its latest software is an evolution from older, enterprise
approaches. It makes the company a better fit with existing enterprise players
that want to give their customers a glide path into cloud. Its most recent
acquisition in 2010, was LoyaltyLabs, which works in the marketing space and is
applicable across industry groups due to its becoming a platform. Motley Fool
says the recently private Dell was a possible buyer before the talks. The Full
