Surely they would have some worthwhile perspectives on ZNGA and its future prospects, and their numbers are growing.
Now think for a moment how many signatures are required on all those legal papers to gain employment at the bull dog factory. There you have the answer. When it comes to throwing the weight of lawyers around, Pinus would be among the very best. "Non-disclosure agreements"
We are not talking here about giving away company secrets, but a mere opinion would draw an immediate lawsuit. However, you can find some valuable information in the hipster bars near the ZNGA brain trust on Townsend Street---off the record of course. How interesting that liquor can lubricate the lips.

1. I filed formal separation papers with John Barleycorn 94 days ago, though he does on occasion still whisper in my ear. A most insidious character.
2. There will be no earnings.
Somehow, I was contemplating derivitives exposure to the current stock market this morning. It is a virtual unknown run entirely off the books. Some of these instruments are so complex that the rocket scientists from MIT cannot even predict how they can possibly unwind. Credit default swaps and collateralized debt obligations remain very much in vogue. It makes ZNGA gambling look like child's play. The concentration of risk is just mind boggling.
