    I AM ALL IN $$$ FOR ZYNGA- I chance only

    Go big or go home i will keep buying even it it drops because i am 100000000000 percent that
    znga will go up more so then any stock i had ever seen on the face of this earth as hedge funds want your shares so bad they will try and i mean try to get this down (like they already did) and that is when i started buying... This is twice in a lifetime that i had this chance as when apple went from $200 down beklow $100 in 2008 was a gift from the heavens and when znga went below $9 because wynn, facebook etc... All want a piece of zynga and i am never selling until it gets bought out.....mark this post fellas....

    • Good luck.

      Listening to the FB IPO Roadshow video now: http://facebook.retailroadshow.com/show/retail.html?m&u=136533#

      Video is OK if one is new to this industry to see the potential Ad power of FB / social and the audience one can reach. I can see the potential for local small businesses paying ok advertising rates a year with much higher ROI than traditional radio and TV and flyers, if they target their FB ads wisely to those living in their community - Small business growth potentially can spur. FB knows your address, especially if you have the GPS on, they know where you are when your mobile phone is on.

      So, if you are fortunate to buy FB early on, may be worth $investing some bucks (don't bet the farm) if you have a very long term view of at least 5 years.

      Now how about games and the payment system? Mark promoted games as significant to their social pitch on the roadshow video, showed a few snippets of Zynga games.

      FB's CFO hinted the 30% commission on FB credits will be reduced for those companies with higher development costs. He didn't mention they would do that for Zynga but who has higher development costs than them? That is a positive if true and will increase margins for Zynga. A 1% drop on $1B revenue via facebook is $10m/year immediate margin/EBITDA improvement. A 5% drop will get Zynga that much closer and quickly to profitability on a GAAP basis.

      ---- oh yeah, did anyone notice this coincidence?

      CEO/CFO Names:
      Facebook CEO: Mark
      Facebook CFO: David
      Zynga CEO: Mark
      Zynga CFO: David

      (its the Mark and David show! Just a little chuckle before the weekend).

      ---------

      IN SUMMARY:
      This whole mission of theirs will take time, even maybe years. It is not going to happen overnite. It is a movement. It is already in our younger generations' DNA. They can multitask so much more now too. More of people's time per day is viewing their mobile devices vs. TV. One day, mobile tablets will be more multitaskable, and so fast that you can be watching a TV show or Movie or News in one corner (live or on demand on one side of your screen), FB in another corner, Ads in another section (those that are relevant to you as FB knows your Likes and where you travel), and if you want, be playing a social Game with your friends, parents/kids you don't live with :), and not miss your favorite show. Apple TV screens next year will make the living room experience wonderful too. Anyway, just a little glimpse of a possible future where after a long day of work between Monday - Thursday (we spend a lot of those hours at home), this may become the norm, then please turn it off on the weekends and spend real time face to face with real people as life is not just about being online.

      Looking forward to May 18

      Cheers and have a good weekend and 2 weeks. I am going on vacation.
