If you're looking to get into the stock market, you might want to take an educated chance on Activision Blizzard.

According to Reuters citing Barron's, the game publishing kingpin could see a 50% rise in the price of its stock.

Activision shares are currently down about 10% this year and are trading at around the $11.25 mark, but that could rise significantly "due to new products and improved cost-cutting." One BMO Capital markets analyst now predicts the stock will hit $17. For the record, the publisher is debt-free and they repurchased shares in the first half of this year; the company also formed a partnership with Tencent Holdings, China's largest Internet provider, to bring a Call of Duty online iteration to market. It's expected to be quite popular.

The 10% fall in stock price this year has been attributed to a general slowdown in demand for packaged video games for use with traditional game consoles. The digital age is coming fast, after all.

Yes I can almost see the sneer on your face as you type the word "Sheep" and can only imagine the feeling of superiority you get delivering such a witty insult. Many of us "sheep" will be having a blast with the next COD while you are living in your mom's basement glued to the latest RPG blockbuster (heh heh).

Grow up.
