12:25 EDTGOGO, KMR, TSLA, INO, KMP, CQB, EPB, KING, KMIOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.

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.
