    GLUU vs. KING

    I'm hearing all the analysts saying that KING is a one-trick pony with Candy Crush. Yet when I look at Appannie data for the top earning games for iPhone in the U.S.A., it is readily apparent that KING has steadily owned 3 of the top 10 earning games for a while now. Why do those other two KING games not count for anything according to analysts? Every game company would kill to have just one steady top 10 earner. KING has three! GLUU has none (although "Deer Hunter" used to be in top 10). The point I'm trying to make, is that if KING is considered to be a one-trick pony even though they have three games in top 10 - my God, then what is GLUU? A zero-trick pony? I don't understand the rationale for all the KING bashing. It seems to me that having three games in the top 10 is quite an incredible accomplishment that speaks to their ability to monitize games. And not just one game. I understand that Candy Crush drives 70-80% of their earnings, but the analysts are forgetting the other 20-30% of steady winners now and in the future. If they think KING is a dog, I can't imagine how low of an opinion they must have of GLUU. Maybe this is why the stock has been under pressure lately.

    • That is exactly right. That's why institutions have been selling gluu and the stock is now back to $4.50. The institutions pushed it up to $5.60 and when they could see it wasn't going to go any higher they shorted it back down to here. They know the next earnings report is not going to live up to the expectations put forth by gluu at last report. Sorry but truth hurts and the retail people are once again holding the bag in the mid $5's.
