Stock Vs. Stat: Take-Two or Michael Thomas?

Who would you take -- the stats of the Saints Michael Thomas or the stock of Take-Two?

It's week 11 in the NFL.

So, of course, it's time for another edition of Stock versus Stat. 

This week, we're putting the stats of the New Orleans Saints wide receiver up against the stock of video-game developer Take-Two Interactive Software, which trades under the ticker TTWO.

Before Bull Market Fantasy co-host Bill Enright could even break down Thomas, Jim Cramer interrupted to say, "I'm going with Take-Two."

Enright then asked why Cramer would take Take-Two over Thomas who, he explained, is "the best wide receiver in the NFL."

Cramer said that he expects Take-Two to break out after meeting with CEO Strauss Zelnick. 

Take-Two, in case you missed it, is the company behind the NBA2K games as well as Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. 

The company--which reported earnings last week--crushed expectations, but the stock fell after the company issued weaker-than-expected guidance.

"Overall, we thought this was a solid update for the biz, with contributions across several core franchises and healthy gains for recurrent consumer spending," wrote Stifel analysts after the company reported earnings. 

However, this is a wait-and-see year for video game stocks, in large part because the newest Xbox and Playstation 5 will be released in 2020. 

Over the past three months, Take-Two is down nearly 5%. However, year-to-date, the stock is up around 16.5%.

The stock is currently trading around $119. 

So, the question is: Who would you take -- Michael Thomas as the Saints take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or the stock of Take-Two Interactive?
