Electronic Arts stock fell nearly 10 percent in pre-market trading on Friday, Nov. 6. Electronic Arts stock trades on the Nasdaq exchange under the ticker symbol "EA."

The most bullish analyst sees more than a 30 percent upside in EA stock to $170. Even the most bearish target price at $140 implies nearly a 10 percent upside. Is EA stock right for your portfolio? Electronic Arts has a decent growth opportunity ahead as the videogame market continues to expand. Bringing EA Play to Game Pass and the planned release of new titles in 2021 should bolster Electronic Arts’ sales and lift the stock.
