King Digital Entertainment (KING), the maker of the addictive online game Candy Crush Saga, dropped 15.5% from its offering price Wednesday. The disappointing performance of King in the early going may reflect concerns that profits may be too closely tied to what could be a one-hit wonder, according to Peter Garnry at Saxo Bank. King reported annual revenue of $1.9 billion and a profit of about $568 million, despite offering games to players for free. Despite its rapid gains, King's dependence on Candy Crush has some worried about its long-term viability. There are concerns that this could be a repeat of Zynga, which has been unable to the match the success of FarmVille.
While the overall market has been volatile due to geopolitical concerns and the Fed's scaling back of stimulus, the average IPO has returned nearly 30% from its offering price, according to Renaissance.
