Citigroup initiated coverage on Changyou.com (NASDAQ: CYOU) with a Buy rating and and a price target of $32.90.

We view positively its diversified approach toward building product strongholds in MMOGs, web games, game vertical (17173.com), and game platforms. Our DCF-based TP of US$32.90 implies 5.4x 2013E nonGAAP EPADS and 38% upside potential from current levels. We believe that with successful diversification of its game product lines, Changyou could be re-rated."
