Looking ahead to 2014

Currently magicJack VocalTec Ltd (NASDAQ:CALL) has about 6.9 registered users of its app. Although it hasn’t fully explained how it plans to monetize it, the Canaccord Genuity team still believes that upside from that app continues. As a result, they raised their price target to $24 a share based on their increased estimates for 2014 and 2015, as well as a higher multiple as the company continues its turnaround process.

Along with its quarterly results, magicJack VocalTec Ltd (NASDAQ:CALL) also revealed that it is planning to deploy a redesigned device which will be more tightly integrated with the app. That new device is expected to come out in April, just a year after the launch of the previous device. When combining the new device with the new way magicJack approaches the market, including the rebranding, they think more and more people will sign up, pushing the app user base to a strong growth rate and improving the company’s effective average revenue per user.
