06:12 EDTGMCRStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.

12:29 EDTEAKing Digital sinks after posting weaker than expected network metrics
Shares of King Digital (KING), an interactive entertainment company for the mobile world, are sinking after the company reported weaker than expected network metrics in the second quarter. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, King Digital reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of 49c and revenue of $500M, ahead of analysts' consensus estimates of 43c and $490.03M, respectively. King reported Q2 total gross bookings of $529M, above the high end of its previously provided guidance range, but down 12% sequentially and 13% year over year. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, King said gross bookings would have decreased by approximately 11% sequentially, and by approximately 6% y/y. King noted that 81%, or $430M, of gross bookings were derived from the mobile audience. The company said "Candy Crush Saga," "Candy Crush Soda Saga" and "Farm Heroes Saga" ranked within the top 10 grossing games in App Store and Play Store in the U.S. during Q2. King said its monthly unique users fell 1% to 340M in Q2, down from 345M last year, while monthly active users were 501M vs. 485M last year; daily active users were 142M in Q2 vs. 138M last year. The company said year-over-year increases in monthly active users and daily active users were primarily due to the introduction of new games, particularly "Candy Crush Soda Saga," partially offset by decline in "Candy Crush Saga" and other more mature games. It said increases also reflect growth in activity from mobile players, partially offset by continued decrease in activity from Facebook (FB) players. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, King Digital said it expects gross bookings in the third quarter of $460M-$485M based on the timing of game releases and recent trends. The company sees fourth quarter bookings "fairly consistent sequentially." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth downgraded King Digital Entertainment to Neutral from Overweight citing an elevated risk profile following the company's Q2 results. King's network metrics were weaker than expected while a key component of the company's pipeline, the upcoming mid-core game, is pushed to 2016, Anmuth said. He cut the price target for shares to $17 from $20. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, King Digital fell $1.81, or 11.84%, to $13.40 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 3% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the mobile gaming space include Glu Mobile (GLUU), Zynga (ZNGA), Shanda Games (GAME), Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO).
