Video game stock Activision Blizzard Inc (NASDAQ:ATVI) climbed on the charts this month, following a bounce off its Dec. 3 annual low of $56.40. ATVI is up 1.6% to trade at $66.50 at last check, on track for its 10th day of gains in the last 11 sessions. Plus, the equity is contending with its 50-day moving average, which it hasn't closed above since early November.
