  • Match the two charts month to month exactly over this six year period. Do you detect any interesting and frightening correlations?

    Summary: History does not repeat itself exactly, but it does rhyme. This historic (histrionic) move in the markets, unprecedented since the Roaring Twenties, is headed for one magnificent coup de grace. It will shake this country to its very knees. Watch for big action in September and October, though August might not be any picnic. ZNGA is already irrelevant while the market flies to new all time highs. This pathetic company won't survive what is coming, definitely not in its current form. Forewarned is forearmed. The rest of this summer should be used to dump stocks, especially those with zero earnings like ZNGA, TWTR, and AMZN. Dollar hedging is the order of the day. Short high yield bond funds as well. I am old enough to recall when they were called junk bonds. I also suggest a 20% core position in physical silver, preferably what is referred to in the business as pre 1965 junk silver. Take these words my son, and may they serve you well.

    I just sent you a copy of the 20 questions from Alcoholics Anonymous. I am a qualified authority on this subject matter. By the way, I am currently dry for what I consider a lengthy period, though I have done this countless times before, only later to return to my intimate acquaintance with John Barleycorn. Be careful when he whispers in your ear, usually during moments of weakness. John will promise the world only to bring you down a few more pegs. For your homework assignment, I want you to focus on questions 7 and 19, both prime numbers.
    7. Do you turn to lower companions and an inferior environment (ZNGA message board) when drinking?
    19.Do you drink to build up your self-confidence?

    Report back to me tomorrow.

  • Here's a conversation I have taped from this morning between Dr. Don and Mr. Pinus.

    Dr. Don: Mark, this is your fifth call this morning. You're driving me nuts. I'm in the middle of a round of Candy Crush to decipher the competition. I've also just achieved level 7 with Kim Khardashian and she's now in bed with some black stallion. Imagine Kim K in Farmville wallowing in a pig sty. Can't you see I'm busy?
    Mr. Pinus: I'm just checking to see how the books are doing in the crock pot. Will they be ready by August 7?
    Dr.Don: We just poked the ledger sheet with a fork and it's not done.
    Mr. Pinus: Have you tried some dog meat tenderizer?
    Dr. Don: Yes, and to no avail. By the way, the CFO just resigned.
    Mr. Pinus: Not a problem. There's plenty more where he came from. Get a creative type.
    Dr. Don: Do you want him to use New Math?
    Mr.Pinus: Yes, by all means, so long as 2+2 does not equal four.
    Dr. Don: I just received a call from my pals at Microsoft. Their latest offer for ZNGA common is 99 cents.
    Mr.Pinus: Tell them we settle for nothing less than $1.49, and I keep the Tunnel of Love.
    Dr.Don: What about Boy Zuckie? Should I call him?
    Mr.Pinus: Absolutely not. I can't trust members of the tribe. There's no honor among thieves.
    Dr. Don: Sorry to cut you short Mark, but the massage therapist is now here. I'll get back to you after cocktail hour.
    Mr. Pinus: OK, at least you have your priorities straight. Call me later at the mansion.

    The short answer is yes, especially in the midst of a broad based decline in the averages.

  • Or come join me. There will be a tear in your beer and you can wash it away with barley suds. Anemic volume says this is a lead zeppelin just waiting for any good excuse to crash earthward. We shall soon have that excuse.

  • Short ZNGA, AMZN, and TWTR.
    Twitter to announce zero earnings tomorrow. Watch out below.
    Amazon has a minimum of $100- of downside risk.
    ZNGA still has $1 billion of downside market cap risk.

    Conversely, just short SPY and go on vacation for three months.

    Patience my son. It's like that old Carpenters song--"We've Only Just Begun" You have just broken the Golden Rule of stock trading. Cut your losses quickly and let the profits run. There's a bare minimum of $100 of downside risk in Amazon. Yes, you might have to ride out a few dead cat bounces and wait to cover in late October, but patience will be rewarded with major gains.

    Odonnellm66 is on a rampage this morning

    Don will shortly announce that he is tired of the ZNGA virtual world and the incessant meddling of Mark Pinus. His marriage is also on the rocks from all the stress of attempting to resurrect a dead dog. I believe he is about to embark on a spiritual journey under the guidance of the Dolly Llama. Don has seen the light. When will you?

    Where's this bar located? It sounds like my kind of place. I could just lounge there, imbibing Pabst Blue Ribbon, stare at the ticker tape on MSNBC with the sound off, and play songs on the jute box while this stock market, and especially ZNGA, go straight to hell. It's a plus if the cute bartender will give me a lap dance.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I like to eat there. The quality of the food is excellent, great value, and it's a nice place to brush up on the Spanish lingo. In other words, it's authentic and Chiplote is not. I'm a believer in this IPO, one of the few.

  • That is of course, the key technical and psychological price of $3-. Their problem is the atrocious volume, because as always, volume precedes price with very high probability. They can fight tooth and nail, but we have a decisive break below $3- pending. Then this stock becomes interesting again.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This board has been dead for quite some time, and it is beginning to effect Yahoo's bottom line. Clearly, this pathetic stock has become a complete bore, shunned by all but delusional bottom feeders, and in fact, I am the only source of entertainment in this desert. Yes, I am here to amuse you, but I will also warn that this ghost ship, without rudder or compass, is about to keel over. That is when we finally have renewed excitement, a 70 million share session. Yes, the lack of earnings report.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Not eve a quote.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I usually don't like to name drop, though I do run in higher circles, but yes, it was Tom Cruise and John Travolta. I first met both of these movie stars at a symposium on nude Greco Roman wrestling. That's when John first asked me to become his personal flight attendant, and he mentioned something about joining the Seven Mile Club. Suffice to say, John did not then realize that I suffered from the dreaded SP disorder, essentially a tendency to paint the world as entirely gloom and doom and drag anyone within a two mile radius with me. Ultimately, I was officially diagnosed with Scientology's e-meter, those holy hand held canisters which measured my negative inner vibrations. My condition was apparently chronic in nature, and I was forced to part ways with John. Mr. Travolta gave me these parting words of advice. "Mike, you need to spend more time playing Farmville, Version2 and Kim Khardashian's Hollywood. These games might
    improve your negative outlook on the world, and hone your intellectual prowess. While you wallow in your sorrow, the virtual realities are leaving you behinds in the dust. Off the record, I will also let you know that the Church of Scientology is a major investor in that penny stock, ZNGA."

    Is it time for me to go long ZNGA common stock on full margin? Perhaps I have been mistaken about ZNGA since $14.19. I request the advice of the pro traders on the board here.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • No you can't, because most of these these private party transactions are run off the public books and they remain virtual unknowns. Full disclosure only becomes available when things go awry and taxpayer money is needed to bail out the too big to succeed. That is the great irony of the period following the 2008 crash. Because of the huge consolidation within the financial industry (Anyone recall Washington Mutual?) risk is now more concentrated than ever among a few major players. We should have done the exact opposite and spread risk over many different parties via a strong regional bank system, but true reform legislation was dead in the water before any vote was taken in Congress. This will be the undoing of this massive stock rally. These highly complex instruments will act in ways not anticipated and exacerbate the decline. Remember what Hal said in Space Odyssey. "I'm sorry Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I can only quote Marissa directly.

    Dear Mike,
    Once upon a time the SPY message board was one of Yahoo's few popular venues and contributed much to our fading bottom line, but of late, it has fallen into disarray and chaos. The SPY board now abounds with half baked wing nuts of every variety, and very few are able to stay on the pertinent topic, which is the demise of the American economy and a crash in the U.S.dollar. By the way, who is "Der Fuhrer," Steven Hutchinson? We have received several complaints on his constant antics. He's definitely a trouble maker, and send me his full bio when you research him. You probably won't find much on his employment background because he has none. Anyway Mike, I want you to clean this mess up, and quickly. I'm granting you full authority to delete any posts which don't fit your vision of things.

    Yours, Marissa Hotfin Mayer

    ps: Pay me a personal visit after midnight. As always, park you one speed bike in the alley behind my Nob Hill penthouse suite. I have already alerted the doorman of your arrival. I want it rough just like the last time.

  • Do you by chance believe a just God exists who will hand out due punishment? God appears to allow rampant evil, but at some point He must intervene. Israel wins the battle, but loses the war. Consider the women and children who perished in Palestine over the last two weeks. Any child's death diminishes me.

    But whoso shall offend one of these little ones who believe in Me, it were better for him that a milestone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
    Matthew: 18:6

    Her's a very curious observation about the censorship policies of the Yahoo message board. While you are free to quote directly from both the Old and the New Testaments, two books I find quite interesting, you may not quote directly from the dark and hateful passages of the Talmud, and there are many of them. I know this from experience. Try quoting this rather revealing section of the Talmud--Zohar,Vayshlah 177b. Yahoo won't accept it from me if I attempt a direct quote. This is by no means the only quotation from the Talmud which Yahoo will reject, and again, I know this from experience.

    Summary: The Talmud is a central doctrine to the Zionist economic philosophy of confiscation. The book spends an enormous amount of time addressing property, ownership, and money. It is even stated that the Goyim are not allowed to read this text upon threat of penalty. Read the book yourself and make up your own mind. Meanwhile, continue to suffer confiscation of your capital in ZNGA shares.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Seven headless horsemen shall approach the doorsteps of the ZNGA Brain trust tomorrow and blare their seven trumpets, precisely as prophesied in scripture. The auspicious date-- 07,28,14-- is much worse than Caesar's Ides of March, as any student of occult numerology would grasp. John Lennon may have obsessed on #9, but #7, a prime number divisible by only God and itself, is much more foreboding. Observe that both 28 and 14 are divisible by 7, and we are in the seventh month of the year. Prepare now for ZNGA Armageddon.
    1'st trumpet: Hail and fire, mixed with blood, assault the temple of money changers, the ZNGA Brain Trust.
    2'nd trumpet: A rotten stench of roasted dog meat permeates the air.
    3'rd trumpet: A great star called Wormwood crashes into Mark Pinus' Pacific Heights mansion.
    4'th trumpet: The ZNGA Brain Trust descends into complete darkness.
    5'th trumpet: An angel warns, "Woe to all those who worship the false idol of Farmville, Version2."
    6'th trumpet: The Ark of the Covenant--ZNGA's ledger sheet--is removed from the crock pot.
    7'th trumpet: Mattrick resigns. The antichrist, Mark Pinus, returns.

    Summary: Prime numbers never lie.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That of course includes ZNGA and Twitter. Sanity is returning to the markets and investors will increasingly demand hard numbers, not hype and momentum. ZNGA was the flavor of the day long ago at $15-. It is now in big trouble. Even with highly creative accounting, ZNGA is about to post more of the same, huge losses. Amazon is about to enter a major tailspin, and this spreads throughout the world of social byte. I wouldn't be a buyer of Amazon at even $200-. Watch out below.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
