    ZNGA-- the bottom line

    brevin_marl... apparently you didnt go to school in finance and accounting like i did. the $600 million "Stock based compensation" is a balance sheet item and has nothing to do with the income statement of a company. If you look on the balance sheet, this item affects the net worth aka stockholder equity of a company not the net income of an entity. once again you are stand corrected yourself. also, all you need to do is look at the R&D costs in year end 12/31/11 --- this particular cost shot up from $149.5 million in 12/31/10 to $727.0 million in 12/31/11, thats a whopping 386.0% increase in costs. now do you call that good management or a good company?? furthermore, look at the 3/31/12 data, same thing happened with the R&D costs, they keep more than doubling. this company wont take this kind of hit any longer.
