Take-Two Heads Higher

GTA 5 Chick

Take-Two shares are on the comeback trail.

Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) shares have quietly rallied 22% in the past 3 months.  TTWO is no longer a nine dollar stock and we told you to buy back when it was at $9.10.

Take-Two was one of the few stocks that finished strong today, it closed up 4% at $11.85.  Ascendiant Capital Markets are the only analysts that have the cojones to up their target price from $12 to $14.  Take-Two is still victim to the short traders with a short interest of 19%.

This coming year the latest installment of Grand Theft Auto will be released, welcome GTA V.  Its expected to bring in $1 billion in revenue and of course is the latest and greatest GTA ever created.  Take-Two would love it if you would pre-order GTA V so they could book the revenue ASAP (If you would like to do that, here is the link). GTA V will be ready for the world sometime in 'Spring 2013'.

Besides the GTA V bet, Take-Two shares are also experiencing some love from Ichan.  That would be the famous activist investor Carl Icahn.  He now owns 10.7% of Take-Two shares from his previous 8.7% stake held just last week.

Traders are going to play TTWO up and down its channel for the foreseeable future.  For those of you that made a position when it was at $9 and change, its worth the gamble.
