Highlights of Stocks discussed on CNBC’s Fast Money Half Time Report TV Program, Wednesday July 13.

Electronic Arts (ERTS) - Guy Adami, of Drakon Capital LLC., is bullish and states,

“With a market cap of $8 billion dollars ERTS could be an acquisition target for Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). There is enough of a short interest where you can see a short squeeze as well." (ERTS buying Popcap read about it here.)

Electronic Arts Inc. develops, markets, publishes, and distributes game software and content for video game consoles, personal computers, mobile phones, tablets and electronic readers, hand held game players, and the Internet. The company is trading below analysts' estimates. ERTS has a median price target of $25 by 19 brokers and a high target of $28. The last up/downgrade activity was on Jun 3, 2011, when Brean Murray initiated coverage on the company with a Hold rating.

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) - Tony Wible, of Janney Montgomery Scott, is bearish with a sell rating and a $170 price target says,

“At the end of the day in order to justify the current price, they have to get $160 million subs at 15% margin to generate earnings-per-share to justify the stock. I don’t think they are going to get it.”

Netflix, Inc. provides online movie rental subscription services in the United States. The company is trading on par with analysts' estimates. NFLX has a median price target of $270 by 22 brokers and a high target of $317. The last up/downgrade activity was on April 26, 2011, when Maxim Group upgraded the company from Sell to Hold.

"I'm so with BKs (Brian) I'm staying with the silver related names."
