EA – Is EA stock a buy after hack report?

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) said Thursday that hackers breached its network and stole game source code. The video games publisher said the hack did not compromise player data.

“No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy. Following the incident, we’ve already made security improvements and do not expect an impact on our games or our business. We are actively working with law enforcement officials and other experts as part of this ongoing criminal investigation,” EA spokesperson said after the incident.

EA share price dropped 1.6% to trade at $143.98 before recovering later to close at $145.72. According to video game developers, game source code can be reverse-engineered to change parts of the game. Therefore, the hack could come back to haunt EA even though the hacker did not access player data.

Is EA stock a buy?

EA shares currently trade at a P/E ratio of 50.86. This is significantly higher than close peer Activision Blizzard Inc.’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) equivalent of 34.64. However, when we consider expected earnings growth over the next 12 months, EA valuation becomes more compelling. 

EA stock trades at a forward P/E ratio of 20.52 compared to ATVI’s equivalent of 21.95. Therefore, from this perspective, EA stock looks like a buy. But investors should also watch out for the developments in the recent breach. It could change the immediate outlook for EA.

Technical overview

Technically, EA shares are trading at an ascending channel formation in the daily chart. This indicates a bullish bias in the market sentiment. The increase in the stock price has pushed EA shares closer to the overbought levels of the 14-day RSI. This could force investors to take profits, subjecting the share price to a pullback.

Investors still optimistic on EA shares can target profits at $151.30 or higher at $156.53. On the other hand, investors looking for pullbacks can target bearish profits at $141.31 and $135.86. Jefferies analysts recently upgraded the stock to a buy with a price target of $165.00 up from $140.00.

Bottom line: EA share price faces a potential pullback

Electronic Arts shares are closer to reaching overbought levels of the 14-day RSI. The company’s recent hacking that led to the loss of source code could have an adverse impact on the stock price. Therefore, although EA shares appeared unaffected by the hacking news on Thursday, the problem may not be over. 

EA shares also look expensively priced compared to close peer ATVI. You cannot place a lot of weight on the projected earnings growth until they are realised. Therefore, EA stock looks likely to pull back in the short term.

JAGX – Jaguar Health Announces Adjournment of Annual Meeting of Stockholders Until Friday, July 9, 2021 and Encourages All Shareholders to Vote

Based on a preliminary review of votes cast, over 76% have voted in favor of Proposals 2, 3, 4 & 6
Meeting scheduled to reconvene July 9, 2021 at 8:30 AM Pacific Standard Time to provide time to reach quorum

SAN FRANSICO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2021 / Jaguar Health, Inc. (Nasdaq:JAGX) (‘Jaguar’ or the ‘Company’) today announced that it has adjourned its Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 13, 2021 (the “Annual Meeting”) for a second time due to a lack of quorum. The adjourned meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time/11:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Friday, July 9, 2021, at the offices of the Company at 200 Pine Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94104. The record date for determining stockholders eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting will remain the close of business on April 12, 2021. Stockholders have thus far strongly supported the proposals.

No action is required by any stockholder who has previously delivered a proxy and who does not wish to revoke or change that proxy.

“We currently have less than 0.1% of our total authorized shares of Common Stock available for future issuance, taking into account shares issued and outstanding and shares reserved for issuance upon exercise of outstanding warrants, existing equity incentive awards, and under our stock incentive plan and inducement award plans. The Board believes that approval of Proposal 3 – the proposed increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock – will benefit us by providing flexibility in responding to future business opportunities as the Board may deem in the best interest of shareholders, from time to time; and also, if deemed in the best interest of shareholders by the Board, to raise additional capital from time to time to execute our business plans,” said Lisa Conte, Jaguar’s president and CEO.

“We encourage all eligible stockholders who have not yet voted their shares – or provided voting instructions to their broker or other record holder – to do so prior to the Annual Meeting, as your participation is important. See below under ‘How to Vote’ for instructions on how to vote if you have not already voted, or if you would like to change your votes,” said Conte. “Jaguar’s Board of Directors recommends a vote ‘FOR’ the presented proposals. Based on a preliminary review of the votes cast, over 76% have voted in favor of Proposal 3 (“Approving an amendment to the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “COI”), to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 150,000,000 shares to 290,000,000 shares.”). Approximately an additional 6% of the Company’s eligible common stock outstanding needs to be voted to reach quorum.”

How to Vote

Stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 12, 2021 may vote by internet at, or by telephone at 800-776-9437 (this voting phone number is operational 24×7), or by returning a properly executed proxy card. Stockholders who hold shares of Jaguar stock in street name may vote through their broker. Street name stockholders requiring assistance with voting their shares are encouraged to contact Jaguar’s proxy solicitation firm, Georgeson, at 866-821-0284, Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM – 11:00 PM US Eastern Standard Time, and Saturday from 12:00 PM-6:00 PM US Eastern Standard Time. Georgeson’s call center is not staffed on Sundays.

No changes have been made to the proposals to be voted on by stockholders at the Annual Meeting. The Company’s Proxy Statement and any other materials filed by the Company with the SEC can be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website at

SRNE – Sorrento Receives Authorization From the UK Regulatory Agency to Conduct a Phase 2 Clinical Trial for COVI-DROPS in an Outpatient Setting

  • Large Phase 2 efficacy trial cleared to start in the United Kingdom in newly diagnosed SARS-CoV-2 infected patients.
  • COVI-DROPS is administered by intranasal drops and the antibody is active against the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as the UK/Alpha and India/Delta variants, currently prevalent in the UK and US.

SAN DIEGO, June 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRNE, “Sorrento”) today announced that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the United Kingdom’s regulatory agency, has cleared Sorrento’s COVI-DROPS product candidate for a Phase 2 efficacy trial. The application was submitted as a rolling application and the MHRA cleared the study in less than a month from Sorrento’s first submission to the MHRA. The application was supported by the safety data from a healthy subject study completed in the US, which showed a safety profile comparable to placebo with doses up to 60 mg. In this study, there were no serious adverse effects or dose limiting toxicities and all adverse effects were mild in severity. The maximum tolerated dose was not reached.

The Phase 2 efficacy trial is a large double-blind clinical trial enrolling 350 outpatients with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms in a 2:2:1 randomization with patients receiving 10mg, 20mg or placebo (details can be found on using the identifier NCT04900428). This trial will complement the Phase 2 trial currently being started in the US and a separate trial to be started in Mexico.

COVI-DROPS is administered as an intranasal instillation in each nares to recently infected patients and utilizes the same neutralizing antibody drug substance as COVI-AMG, the intravenous formulation. The antibody is active against the original SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the most prevalent viral variants of concern (VoCs) currently infecting the UK and the US. These variants include the UK/Alpha and the India/Delta variants of concern.

The results of this Phase 2 trial in the UK will be combined with the results of the US and Mexico Phase 2 trials and should the results of these studies demonstrate that COVI-DROPS is both safe and effective against SARS-CoV-2, Sorrento will apply for Emergency Use Authorization in the US, India, UK, Mexico and European Union as well as other territories.
