Zynga, Inc. Message Board

    Truth about Zynga

    It is really amusing how people waste their times posting nonsense on this board. Do you really believe that you are going to persuade anyone with big money to act on your stupidity?

    For those who are seriously interested in this company, I would like to post something with merit on this board:

    1. Zynga has new partnerships with Hasbro and Majesco. If you haven't heard about the Hasbro partnership it's because the media is trying to keep it low key. When gaming company Rovio produced toys relating to their games, it accounted for about 30% of their revenue. This is a big market for Zynga to get involved in and it will increase revenues for sure. This is not speculation, these are facts.

    2. CBS announced a few months ago that they are picking up the pilot of a Draw Something reality show. This show will allow celebrities to battle each other on television and for the audience to directly interact with the game show. This show will not only increase the popularity of Draw Something but it will also increase royalty and ad revenues for Zynga. So, for all of those people who keep bashing the Draw Something acquisition, open you eyes and see the big picture being drawn. And Ryan Seacrest is on board (not an idol fan but it doesn't take a genius to know that Seacrest is a hit in pop culture).

    3. Real money gaming! This opportunity is huge and it is real. Although not officially legal throughout the US, it is pretty evident that it is not a matter of "if it will happen" but more of "when it will happen". The gov't needs money for all these wars people and where can they get a whole new stream of revenue from - online gambling! Zynga Bingo, Slingo, Slot, and most of all Texas Hold'em are all games that will be hits once all is legalized in the US. But nonetheless, Pincus already stated that Zynga will release real-money games abroad in early 2013, which means we already have a partner on this project. Companies are currently bidding for Zynga and this will be a big hit once the deals are finalized.

    Article #2: http://techcrunch.com/2012/07/25/zynga-gambling-2013/

    4. Don't believe that Zynga games will always be free to play. Once the popularity is sustained and more partners jump on the Zynga platform, you can bet the house that a subscription will be necessary to access all of Zynga's games. On Appdata.com, right now Zynga has over 260,000,000 MAUs so the revenue potential here is also massive.

    With over $1.5 billion in cash and marketable securities, Zynga has plenty of money to make moves in the industry they are already dominating. In my opinion, these lawsuits are all bs and will not have any impact on the company in the long term, just a bunch of greedy lawyers trying to make a paycheck and propaganda to lower the stock price. Are you surprised by these shady actions? Don't be, welcome to real world!

    I am long on Zynga and all of this is in my own opinion. Do your own research and make your own judgement but this is a long term winner.

    Thanks for the cheap shares boys and girls!

      • From my past experiences on this board, he should be here pretty soon.

        I am not trying to pump this stock in any way, shape or form. I just wanted to put some truth out there to see if anyone can counter with a reasonable argument not something like "Cramer just put Pincus on the wall of shame" or "Pincus is going to jail". Wake up sheeple, guys like Pincus don't go to jail. Google his name and see the people he associates with, these are the big timers in this country not Joe Shmo or WarmTardboy.

        Open to all reasonable rebuttals.

    • One good post among the 1000s of garbage posts.

      Nice post!

    • great post, appreciate your effort, but which price do u think Zynga will reach at the end of 2012?

      • I'm thinking it will be somewhere near $5.50 IF the US regulation regarding real money gaming has not approved yet.
        In the beginning of 2013, we will hear a lot about the International real money gaming that Zynga plans to enter, that will help rally the stock up to $8 if the earnings of the other game sectors also beat the expectation.

        Most interestingly is the earnings after the international real money gaming starts. That can be HUGE :-).

        Patience needed for the long.
        As for the shorts, they can stay around this August until more news develop. Still have time for them to escape. No one will be hurt unless you use margin.

      • this depends really. the current PPS means that no future growth is priced into the stock. investors believe that zynga CAN make money in the future, but have no confidence in the stock itself and believe their money is not safe here. i think far too many people are waiting for online gambling and have lost focus that they are the # web/mobile game maker in the world aside from real money gambling.

        don't know if it will happen this year, but assuming zynga can survive these lawsuits, then you will hear stories of shorts who have gone bankrupt from the turn around. this is one of those stocks i believe, that if it goes up, will jump so quickly, that most shorts will not have time to get out.. and before they know it, will have lost their life savings and accumulated so much debt that they will lose their house/families.. sad but unfortunate

      • Thanks guys, it is good to see that some people are actually interested in investing and not just posting nonsense.

        In response to Mike:

        If I knew the answer to that question then I would definitely not be sitting at work right now.

    • Thank you for summarizing the investment points on Zynga.
      I have never read that Zynga might charge for their games. This would
      be a solid revenue stream but not sure if it would work.
      Also gambling is huge but the US market will probably be poker only. A
      deal has been struck in Senate striking down the wire act with the
      promise that only online gambling allowed. Zynga has 10x the players of
      Pokerstars so this should really drive the stock once it happens.
      Keep posting we need clear thinkers like you.

    • good info on here.

    • This is EXACTLY the the data that will be used as a coordinated effort to take the stock up in the future. Right now, there is VERY OBVIOUSLY a coordinated effort to bring down social media stocks after the FB stumble/IPO. Don't for a second think that the authors/analysts of some of these articles being posted do not get calls from their very rich hedge fund buddies (who at the same time invite them to a an exclusive party on their yaht)...supplying fodder for them to write about. It has been a very large and successful orchestrated effort by the Hedge funds.

      I am not saying that it wasn't deserved - typically, the Hedge funds will get wind of some weakness (FB over valuation and ZNGA's ding from FB changes to games). What I am saying is that they create the perception of a MUCH bigger issue... ZNGA, for example, if left alone to announce the quarter without all the negativity (and FB negativity) prior would have been trading at around $10 when the quarter was announced. The PPS would have lost a few bucks on the lower bookings number and lowered annual forecast due to FB changes. Worst case, it would have lost 40% of its value (like it did) and traded at $6 which is where it probably should be based on what we know today and the cash they have.

      So, even though they were correct...the Hedge effort over does it in order to make more money. They know this and will reverse it and make money on the way up - they will ping their author/analyst buddies who will write stories about the positive developments (per the posting here).

    • theshark's pumping history is extensive and well documented. Hilarious that you desperate bagholding clowns on this board still don't take the 5 seconds it takes to check into that.

      2. Won&&39;t Be Low for Long
      Lately I have noticed larger and larger buys for this stock so it triggered my interest more and more. The temporary hike yesterday seemed to be from a large purchase order...

      5. Re: Is this really this easy?
      I'm not sure your facts are right buddy. Maybe you need to go get educated yourself. This article sure seems pretty convincing that BWEN is holding their own...

      Is this really this easy?
      The financials alone prove that the market cap is way below the value of this company. Add another $23 million deal with a new "big" customer and this stock is easily over $1 if not $2. Not sure if I will...

      • Such a clown, appljacks. Instead of trying to rebuttal facts, he attempts to damage the post by pulling up prior posts on other stocks. Have I been right in the past? Yes. Have I been wrong? Yes. Like I stated before, if I knew which direction the market was going at all times, I would not be sitting at work right now.

        If you had some facts to argue against my posts then go ahead and post them (no one is stopping you).

        If not, then go get a real job buddy.

    • sounds good

    • Thanks for bumping my post back to the top of the board!

    • Sorry, cat. I just don't want some retard to defile my post.
