Will it hold though or are they planning to sell it at the end of the day to cash out and take the rest of the week off? I know some will work Friday but the larger MM's may go on vacation the rest of the week and take some risk off the table. Just trying to anticipate the moves.
Then you must be hoping for LTD to bomb before end of year. Hit games have a way of spilling over to other games provided by the same maker as user satisfaction awakens curiosity about other offerings.
Have hit four for four. Z might be my fifth with a good size position in shares and options. Already made a truck load here when this ran up in march to near its 52 week high. I put those gains to work recently and doubled down on it with other gains from other positions. Last time I felt this confident with a symbol as you call it, it more than doubled on me on a take out. I had 55K shares on it with 200 Calls deep in the money when the takeout was announced. Similar price levels like Z. I could have doubled my position then but held back because of the exposure I was taking. I left a lot of money on the table. This time I am being more aggressive and lowered my exposure with lower entry. GL to all if this happens if not I will be content with a 50 cent move up.
Over weight on the position more than I really wanted but if it takes off, it will be worth the wait. Other positions I have are volatile but when they move I pick up a few K in and out during the week. ZNGA could be the runaway train and I doubled down during low 2's.
You have not assessed the acceptance of this game in the states properly: 1. This is the USA where capital income exceeds those where this game was beta tested and consequently there is more money to spend per household on discretionary items like entertainment. 2. LTD resonates very well with baby boomers who grew up with Tunes. These characters were the baby sitters for many while parents were working or busy with everyday life. The boomers will in turn show/invite and tell their next generation about this new game and will act as possible agents to introduce it to them via social media as they communicate with their grand children. 3. Baby boomers drive the economy, they spend where their interests lie and they have the money to fulfill whatever desire they have, at least the majority do. This game has the potential to go viral with baby boomers driving it and exposing it to others like no other game. Call it luck of the draw or maybe it was well planned that way. Will see very soon.
Have been locked and loaded waiting for this move. This has plenty to climb and if it does get taken, it will be great for those who loaded up when it was low.
Always. This is twice in one week they insert an article with all their bearish guidance at the end. It is so obvious that many do not even pay attention to them. They are a joke. Watch for more noise from them as this heads towards $3. It will be every other day.
IMO, this has the potential to supply enough fuel for take off. It would be a slam and dunk if another hit game became available that can go viral and Z would go vertical.
Some people I know have commented this has layout and presentation materials that are not available on many games today. Once you get addicted it will be hard to put down since you want to see more characters and other thrills at the next level. It looks like they found a way to tease you to get you to spend. How much they can draw will depend on the addict type and money available to spend.
Just tried it. Great graphics. It can get addictive, the same with Jenga. NFL showdown already has addicts who are spending big. I can tell by some of the bidding going on for players also many are just buying their way up. They don't want to deal with the practices and the bidding process so they are spending hundreds of dollars to move up. That's fine. We only need a few heavy spending addicts to move the needle. The masses will spend on the others like the slot machine games and poker tables and now LT and Jenga. At least they are moving away from FarmVille brand games that only appeal to a certain segment.
Just saw the announcement.

With almost a billion shares out there and counting, it will be a difficult clawback. Risks and global competition persists. I don't see them doing this by themselves.
Sorry dude, hate to hear about bag holders holding from high levels. Best case scenario for you is it gets taken out. I doubt you will see those levels again. You can try to sell calls on those shares in the meantime so you can recover some of it back but you have a long wait to any substantial recovery specially if taken out.
Ok sure. More incentive to sell than BK. At BK it goes to zero without becoming fully vested. They can sell after they hold it for the timeframe where they become vested. Otherwise they would leave a month later, doesn't work that way and they have certain price targets where they can become vested earlier. You are spreading
stuff that makes no sense.
you make no sense. These guys will sell themselves before wiping out their shares in BK. Their whole incentive of coming to work for ZNGA was holding a good portion of stock with a good salary but with emphasis on shares. That it is why we are getting dilution of shares every month because they bait new hires with shares. You think they are just going to wipe it out without first selling it? The majority of the CEO compensation is based on shares.
Glad to report there are many other "losers" who keep buying into this on every weakness and that is why it comes back up to support at the end of the day. Glad to be on the losing side with all that buying on weakness.
