11:57 EDTKINGKing Digital rallies after Cowen says new game looks like a hit
King Digital's (KING) new Candy Crush Soda Saga digital game launched on Apple's (AAPL) iOS operating system and Google's (GOOG) Android operating system earlier this week. In a note to investors today, research firm Cowen wrote that the game looks poised to be a "significant hit" for King. WHAT'S NEW: Candy Crush Soda Saga, the sequel to King's extremely popular Candy Crush Saga game, launched on iOS and Android on Tuesday after having previously been available only on Facebook (FB). The game features new environments, new candies and "kooky" new characters, King stated in its announcement of the game's expanded release. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Cowen analyst Doug Creutz wrote that Candy Crush Soda Saga is already in 13th place on the U.S. top-grossing games charts for both iPhone and iPad. The game will "almost certainly" provide a significant boost to King's Q4 revenue, and the company's Q4 gross bookings are likely to surpass its guidance by a meaningful amount, Creutz forecast. King's guidance factored in only a modest revenue contribution from Candy Crush Soda Saga, the analyst stated. The guidance was based on the assumptions that the revenue generated by Candy Crush Soda Saga would increase relatively slowly, and that the revenue generated by King's other games would decline as a result of the sequel's launch, the analyst stated. Neither of these assumptions appears to be occurring so far, he wrote. Adding that analysts' consensus Q4 estimates and the company's Q4 guidance "look very conservative," Creutz "aggressively reiterated" his Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, King rose 10% to $15.50.
