Barstool App Breaks DraftKings Download Record, Analyst Says
(Bloomberg) -- Penn National Gaming Inc. shares rose as much as 4.5% in early trading Tuesday after Morgan Stanley said Penn's minority owned Barstool Sportsbook betting app achieved a record 21,000 downloads per day in its first weekend, breaking DraftKings Inc.'s and Flutter Entertainment Plc's FanDuel's daily records.Preliminary data from market intelligence firm Sensor Tower show Barstool sportsbook app, which soft launched in Pennsylvania on Sept. 15, had 63,000 downloads in its first weekend, analyst Thomas Allen wrote in a note.That compares to DraftKing's sportsbook downloads of just 4,000 during its opening weekend in New Jersey in Aug. 2018 and its single-day record download of 15,000 on Sept. 10, this year's NFL season opener. Barstool's weekend and single-day performance also topped FanDuel's inaugural weekend launch downloads of 9,000 over the 2018 NFL opening weekend and its single-day download record of 19,000 on Sunday, Sept. 13, Allen noted.Barstool's app downloads have started out "extremely strong," yet competitor downloads didn't seem to "slow meaningfully," the analyst said. Based on the weekend's download data, Allen believes Barstool is "expanding the market rather than cannibalizing" it, which is a bullish sign for the sector, he said.Allen downgraded both Penn National and DraftKings last month to equal-weight from overweight, citing valuation after both stocks had skyrocketed this year. In April, DraftKings began trading as a public company after a reverse merger with Diamond
