Doomed to failure.

Although this particular game is (or perhaps WAS) a hit, there is no track record of them building games (or for that matter, a corporation) for the long term. They have one product. The company’s future is iffy, at best.

I wouldn’t put a cent on their IPO unless I was content to lose it all.

I bet you it flies to the moon the first day with lots of buying then settles down. It’ll be a rocky road , imo, and something fun to watch.

I doubt anyone with actual money in stocks are paying much attention to Candy Crush in any way.

Egh, fuck King. Watching their stocks makes me smile, it’s like karma working itself out.

@Aster It was actually the worst IPO opening day of the year, it dropped 15% on the first day :)
