that Microsoft Activision Blizzard (WKN: A0Q4K4) buys for nearly 70 billion US dollars, hit a bomb last week. It shows that the large Tech Group would like to put more stronger on video games in the future. But also that this market for content, media usage and entertainment can generally be very crucial.

Whether there are other such acquisitions, which is natural with a large question mark. Who wants to put on content or the evaluation, but should put two strong companies in my eyes. Whether you become a takeover goal, that's another question. But they are at least interesting, which is concerned with their content and competitive position in the market of video games.

  Russell Westbrook actually had fun in Lakers' win over the Jazz; will it turn his season around? Good morning, Los Angeles. How are the vibes this morning? Are you feeling a little less tension in your shoulders and neck after the Lakers defeated the Jazz?

The Lakers had lost three games in a row coming into the match and the vibes were so bad that LeBron James had to apologize to fans.

Better Content as Activision Blizzard? The Nintendo share!

Content in the video game segment is naturally taste matter and we can argue about whether Nintendo (WKN: 864009) or Activision Blizzard own more popular content. What we do not need to discuss is that the Japanese have a very wide fundus of popular content. Although

Nintendo is also active in other areas, for example as licensors for amusement parks. But: with franchises like The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Pokémon and other popular franchises has a very popular game base. However, the Japanese Group is also active in the console segment. Whereby you even have released your own streaming service for gaming with the switch and switch online. Without a doubt an exciting starting position for investors.

Hochul unveils $216 billion spending plan for New York in first budget address

  Hochul unveils $216 billion spending plan for New York in first budget address Bolstered by federal COVID funds and unexpectedly high tax receipts, Hochul sought to strike a fiscal balance as she laid out a spending plan she described as “socially responsible and fiscally prudent.” The proposed budget includes $31.2 billion in education spending, a $2 billion increase, $10 billion to bolster the pandemic-ravaged health care industry, $1.4 billion for child care and $32.8 billion for infrastructure projects.Accelerated tax cuts for middle-class earners and $2.2 billion in property tax relief are also included as part of the proposal as well as a plan to bring casinos to New York City.

Whether this operational, but very wide focus from Nintendo as with Activision Blizzard makes a takeover goal, that's another question. With the strong content and a market capitalization of € 56.3 billion, the valuation dimension is quite similar. Maybe a share that Foolishe investors should keep in mind with a long breath. Especially if Content becomes an increasingly important currency in the entertainment segment.

Take-Two: Measured by the stock market value really small!

Take-Two (WKN: 914508) is more of a direct former competitor of Activision Blizzard. The company is also a pure game developer, which increases focus on content. However, the evaluation is comparatively small. With a market capitalization in the amount of US $ 19 billion, the company may already be a takeover destination.

Even if not: In the market of the Content, the company founded in 1993 also has strong classics. Above all, the Grand-Theft Auto Series (GTA) and Red Dead Redemption have beaten high waves in recent years. Classics are rather Duke Nukem, the Max Payne series or the Mafia series. For investors looking for content, this is definitely an exciting connection point.

for itself, Take-Two of course always relies on the release of first-class content. Although the GTA series alone should provide all jumper years for strong sales. Whether it comes to a takeover as with Activision Blizzard, that stands, as I said, in the stars. But a comparatively small company with popular content is possibly a suitable destination. In particular, if the market fragments more fragment.
