    There comes a point, and we are closer than most think, when the Federal Reserve loses control over the Frankenstein it has created with years of funny money. The Federal Reserve also has very limited influence over Chinese economic policy, which is obviously a massive currency devaluation. Remember, China is our creditor and they hold 10% of all US treasuries. Imagine the power China could wield if they decide to sell. It would rock the entire world.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yesterday's levitation in the SPY is at least questionable since Germany is still not prepared to toss more money down this rat hole. Greece has now spiraled down into a virtual state of economic depression, so any numbers used even six weeks ago before the bank runs are no longer valid. For those playing the recovery in the SPY, I can only say there is zero room for error at this juncture. A complete Greekexit remains quite feasible in my view despite a favorable response from the French. Again, it goes back to Germany, and it is Merkel who runs this Schauspiel. If there is any disappointment in the so-called Greek solution over this weekend, we are looking at heavy selling pressure next week. I would furthermore state that China's one party system may not be able to save its stock market bubble, trading halts and threat of arrest for short traders aside. China's greatest fear is social unrest resulting from a catastrophic market rout. Quite possibly, we have a perfect storm brewing at this moment.. Market risk is at unprecedented levels, margin debt off the charts, and market psychology has been trained to buy every dip for more than five years. That market strategy, remarkably successful in the past, now likely proves disastrous.

  • Doesn't this all start to smell a bit like a market top? Or does it smell like teenage spirit?
    Remember that time long ago when IBM, General Motors, and Polaroid were the bellwether stocks?
    Now it's FB and APPL.
    The Apple watch is so cool.
    Just like Google Glasses.
    As goes APPL, so go the major indexes.
    Tomorrow's AAPL price? Who cares?
    Precise market timing is for others.
    Only know the end is close at hand.
    Junk bonds remain the huge question, completely off the radar.
    And the masters of this grand ponzi scheme,
    The Federal Reserve,
    Fear to raise interest rates even a token 0.25%
    Because of the leverage in this house of cards.
    Watch out below.
    And the junk stock ZNGA?
    A Comedy of Errors
    And outright fraud.
    Another one bites the dust.

    You have proven my point perfectly.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We have zero diversification, and have bet the entire farm on Boy Zuckie. Will he have to forget about UC Berkeley tomorrow and focus instead on Heald Business College? I need some serious advice from the pros on this message board, preferably within the next 42 minutes. Thanks so much.

    ZNGA is a Zionist outfit, and if you don't think so, take a close look at the names of those who profited from the fraudulent secondary offering (insider trading) where the clan liquidated $600 million of stock near $13- while the rank and file were still under formal lock down. The love of money justifies the means to attain it. I would additionally state that I abhor the Christian right and the Neocons even more than the Zionists for selling out our country to Tel Aviv over some entirely absurd biblical interpretation that "prophecy must be fulfilled and the Temple of Solomon rebuilt." Israel makes the wars. We fight and pay for them. Our men,our blood, and our military hardware. I don't really care much for Obama, but he at least refused to kiss the ring of Netanyahu. He earns my respect on this point. And the ZNGA death spiral continues.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I thin Benny has a long list of demands having a few things to do with our nation's foreign policy and specifically, Iran. As usual, you simply follow the money trail, which leads to Tel Aviv, Wall Street, the money center banks, and the doors of AIPAC. Shame on our nation, but the population is too busy playing Farmville.
    Isn't war a good thing for a declining economy?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It matters not if you have any direct position in oil because oil is the canary in the coal mine and we have an absolute rout today--down over 4%. You reply, "Cheap oil is good. We get cheaper pump prices. That means more disposable income for silly touchscreen games." Be very careful what you pray for because you just might get it. Oil is now screaming deflation and a worldwide slowdown in economic activity. This of course explains why China devalued their currency today in an act of desperation. China, and I spent some time living there, is in a particularly rough spot. The population at large has tasted a bit of capitalism, but it remains a one party state where individual freedoms we take for granted do not exist. A sharp deflationary downward spiral in China has direct implications for potential social unrest and the party leadership, a group of old men, is all to aware of this threat. Despite the government prop of their stock market and currency devaluation, China can still implode. Theirs is a panic response to very strong deflationary forces in markets leveraged to the hilt. Deflation can get very ugly as incomes dry up and debt service becomes unmanageable (a la Puerto Rico). Oil can even break below $30-, and then we have major fireworks, and again, junk bonds are devastated. This is why ZNGA gamblers and riverboat speculators need to keep the big picture in mind. Junk stocks will be hammered before this year is out. Quality issues take on the chin as well, just not to such a degree.

    Gypsy Frank, the proprietor and bar tender, was the very best. They don't make bona fide dives like The 21 Club anymore. When Frank shuts the joint down, it's the end of a grand era. I'm sure the New Age techies will now disinfect and transform the entire neighborhood into some facsimile of Disneyland, and with clean rest rooms to boot. After all, Twitter headquarters is just a hop,skip, and jump away. You can't stop progress. My solution is a simple but difficult one-- just stop drinking entirely and give my liver and kidneys a break. Yes, I suffer from the Irish virus with a smattering of Norwegian influence. I want to be stone sober when the stock market completely unravels come this fall and ZNGA trades below $1.99. It's a slight miracle not to taste a drop of booze for five consecutive days, which is where I'm presently at. "It's easy to stop. I do it every day." Alcoholism is cunning, baffling, powerful, and extremely patient. It took so many good and gifted men down to the gutter. Somehow, we can't function in the real world and require a sense of ease and comfort not afforded by Farmville, Version 2. So many were good friends of mine, and now gone. Yes, I must remain on good behavior this weekend. It's the annual raft trip down the South Fork of the American River on Sunday. Big Rapids , Baby! Not for Girlie Men or anyone with a hangover. No booze. No green herb. No pills. A nearly natural high with a few morning cigarettes. Better than the stock market. Damn near better than good sex with China Girl. Meanwhile, the tide rolls in and out, and time marches on.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Mike, I was just hit with another margin call, so I'm in a bit of a rough spot. Though I despise the sham stock ZNGA, much like yourself, I've been long the S&P 500 and a biotech ETF with full tilt leverage. I should have listened to your doom and gloom view of the world, because I now find myself in the position of needing to find a real job. Hell, I may even apply as a masseuse at the ZNGA Brain Trust and soothe the frail nerves of the reincarnated CEO, Mr. Pincus. Listen Mike, can I borrow a quick $100,000 to fix that unpleasant margin call? You know I'm good for it. Yes, I will start attending Gamblers Anonymous meetings. By the way Mike, in light of the current financial stress, my marriage proposal is now on hold. I know you will understand. Love is a many splendid thing.
    Yours,
    The (former) Legend

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • China, not Greece, is likely the really big story. The Shanghai Composite was off another 6% last night. It is down more than 24% in just over two weeks. This is despite massive intervention and rate cuts by the Chinese Central Bank. We now witness panic selling and margin calls in Shanghai, and nearly $3 trillion in market cap has been erased. History does have an odd tendency of accelerating at critical junctures, and markets declines then take on lives of their own. How does ZNGA fare in a U.S. market rout, which we are on the very cusp of? The short answer is not good. The ZNGA Brain Trust vaporized billions of shareholder capital ($15- to $2.84) in the midst of one of the greatest stock market ralleys in history. The company still does not make a dime, and will post more losses this August. This bloated pig remains in big trouble. Further layoffs are not a question of if, but when. Don't get me wrong. Greece remains very important in terms of establishing precedent for other nations under the curse of austerity, and it's a long list.. We have a perfect storm brewing between China and Greece. Bottom fish junk stocks at your own peril. We have another fascinating week of trading ahead. Yes, it will be exciting. Hold on for the ride.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We ought to be off a minimum of 500 DOW points today. No matter. The pain still comes. The central banks are losing control of their ponzi scheme. The Chinese decline also continues. Patience rewards the shorts, just as it has with ZNGA. Long term, watch for big problems in the junk bond market. Then we witness a dynamic shift to fear.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Day to day price movements are actually of no concern to me--not with ZNGA and not with the Fed pumped up broad averages. The patient sort I am, I only focus on the primary trend, which is down. Under normal circumstances, one watches Hal and his byte buddies enter the field of play for the last 20 minutes of the trading session--push, shove, and front load. The SPY reflex bounce begins to fade right now, so my stab in the dark says ZNGA closes lower. The volume remains extremely suspicious as the stock treads water. The real excitement is ahead of us. It will be fascinating to watch this house of card crumble. Yes, another day of spanking for the delusional ZNGA longs.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I am not especially fond of chart reading and prefer to focus on a combination of tarot cards and human psychology. Robert Precther has more or less disappeared from the scene, but he was always one of my favorite pundits. I especially enjoyed how he used social trends (literature is dead, touchscreen obsession, and garbage music anyone?) to predict stock market moves. Of course, I always appreciated Alan Abelson's cynicism, wit, and the quality of his writing, but he's now dead. But back to head and shoulders. If you believe in such things, then a 90 day ZNGA chart says that we break the April low of $2.45. Sooner than later.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Are we perhaps looking at a full blown liquidity crisis globally?
    A world which simultaneously papers over rotten debt.
    By the way, what's the FB P/E ratio?
    No downside risk for this big league growth story?
    I'm such a cynic.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This all makes perfect logical sense to me. It's a great little piece of news (smokescreen really) for a day trader. That day trader will be gone in a few heartbeats, as they are an impatient sort. After all, ZNGA seldom moves based on such things as hard numbers and actual profit. However, it might do so sometime in early August.
    As a side note, selling in China has resumed. China, not Greece, is quite possibly the big story.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This entire casino is starting to smell a bit rotten. The proverbial question is what will be the straw which breaks the camel's back? I honestly have no idea, but I do anticipate a black dog event, and the waves of selling will be shock and awe. Yes, it occurs this calendar year. The current levels of complacency (and margin debt) are nothing short of astounding.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That's precisely when ZNGA responds not to blatant price manipulation, as we witness today, but rather to classic supply and demand curves. Free price discovery will get very ugly as fear supplants greed and the bid side of ZNGA common drops precipitously. There will be many more sellers than active buyers, and this shall be the definition of a legitimate liquidity crisis. Many will hit the bottle next to me at The 21 Club as a temporary refuge. Others will smoke copious amounts of green crack. Divorce rates skyrocket once the wives grasp your secret losses. Psychoanalysts will be overwhelmed with desperate patients. The walkway on the Golden Gate Bridge will be closed after an entire group of delusional ZNGA longs hurl themselves to the waters below. Mark Pincus will hold a press conference and finally admit, "The devil made me do it," but by then it will be too late. There will be much wreckage from the ZNGA death spiral. No one can defy Karma Yoga. Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It simply indicates that the push and shove is now in place from the first hour of trading. Now the Kosher Nostra must unwind their position in an orderly manner with the full cooperation of the message board sheep. Do the math--a 1.5% return on let's say $7 million in capital. It's all accomplished in a few hours. Free price discovery? Are you nuts?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Volume is always missing in the equation. Trade these manipulations if you must, but always push the sell button too early. By the way, how does Wall Street react to ZNGA's soon to be announced report of more losses? If United Technologies (UTX) is any indication, patience begins to wear a bit thin. Oh yes, actual earnings are just around the corner or when hell freezes over. Watch for some smokescreen announcement from the ZNGA Brain Trust just before another disastrous report.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
