Michael Pachter is a games analyst for Wedbush Securities.
He makes his living covering gaming stocks.
He has over 50 contacts who are current Zynga employees.
He has stated that any talk of a buyout at these levels is ludicrous. Perhaps at $10 he says.
Mark Pincus is on the record as saying that the only way he'll leave Zynga is feet first.
Mark Pincus controls 62% of his company. He set it up this way purposely.
Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers own 63 million shares and John Doerr, their principle partner is on record as stating that this company needs to return to $10. He and Bing Gordon, another KPCB partner are both on Zynga's Board of Directors and wouldn't even consider a buyout offer of less than $10.
This board is rampant with wild buyout theories.
