5 ETFs to Buy If You Love EA's Fourth-Quarter Earnings

EA's (EA) fourth-quarter results are likely to show continued strength in its digital business, as well as the disc business, thanks to strong growth in upcoming games and strength from Mass Efect: Andromeda.

"Based upon industry sell-through data, we believe that EA sold-in at least 2.5 million units of Mass Effect: Andromeda, a March 21 release, for incremental revenue of $110 million, offsetting the new releases a year ago," Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter wrote in an investor note.

Analysts surveyed by Yahoo! Finance expect the company to earn an adjusted 75 cents a share on $1.09 billion in revenue for the period.

Over the past 12 months, shares of EA have gained nearly 48%, compared to the near 11% gain in the S&P 500.

Here are five ETFs that may benefit if investors like EA's fourth-quarter results.
