  • A four foot high totem pole, possibly phallic, carved from iron wood emblazoned with the naked images of sexy young maidens with substantial cleavage. It is an ancient and central fertility image for the Utes, an Indian tribe of the American Southwest. In the sacred ritual, young boys approach the sperm post and flagellate their weapon against the hard surface until their is a final release of seed spread all over the raised relief images of the damsels. Modern anthropologists have speculated that the rite might possibly be a release for extreme frustration.

  • All I can say is, "Ouch!" Daily volume has fallen off a cliff for both, with the SPY, not your Willy Wonka fantasy, being the key indicator in terms of predictive value for the market as a whole. Ask yourselves why share trading is so slow it reflects an August summer day in Paris, when the better shops and restaurants are all shuttered as the owners sun on the beach in Nice. There's something slightly amiss with this volume decline, and the churning action--exactly what we witness across the board-- is never healthy for stocks over a larger time frame. In other words, when volume again rises, I expect it to be due to selling. a 10% decline would be healthy at this juncture. A 30% to 40% decline, entirely feasible in my view at some point in 2016, will trigger all kinds of complex dervitive contracts. By the way, try talking to some regular working stiffs outside the world of finance. Most of them are struggling to pay bills, living paycheck to paycheck, and this so-called recovery, is no recovery at all. This all tells me that the economy is much weaker than the lies mass media and our government freely spread. That weakness will soon be reflected in the price of stocks.
    ZNGA will end up on the ash heap as the bloated squadron of highly compensated techies bleed this travesty dry

    Final Question: Does a 2016 stock crash benefit Hillary or The Donald?
    Hands down it would benefit The Donald.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • What can this churning action possibly mean?

    Answer: Volume precedes price with high frequency, and we should anticipate a post doldrum volume burst in the near term future with price action to the downside. Sorry boys, but this party, more of a group sex orgy really, is over. Money will now be made on the short side of the equation. Bad things happen when the crowd pushes the sell button simultaneously. Liquidity 101. Hype stocks with no earnings will be slammed the hardest. It's a long list.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The sideways price action on anemic volume is a given with the junk stock ZNGA. However, you ought to be more interested in the grand landscape, not some minor pink sheet bit player who will be no more a few years hence. Therefore, study the day to day volume of the SPY ever so carefully, as it is a key market indicator. It's currently in the doldrums, and yesterday's SPY volume was absolutely horrid. The broad indexes will churn on until they don't, and that comes soon enough. Repeat after me:
    "Volume precedes price with very high mathematical probability."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    make that "oversee"

  • Brothers and Sisters: Remove yourselves from the domain of Lucifer and liquidate all shares in the ZNGA Brain Trust at tomorrow's open. You will soon pay a very heavy price for your false idol worship as the pillars of this temple of infidels quake and tumble. Yes, Jesus loves you, but He has granted each and every one of us the element of free choice. Thus, he allows you to pursue such hallucinogenic dreams as $3- ZNGA and 169 vestal virgins. When ZNGA is finally on the shelves of the 99 Cent Store, Mark Pinky will have already have fled to Tel Aviv to oversea his Caterpillar dealership, and Israel has no extradition treaty with the United States. I warn you now that the hour draws near for the demise of this sham company. Fire and brimstone pend for most of you. Thus sprach Zngathustra.

    There are really two states in Michigan, and the line of demarcation is the Mackinac Bridge, which in many ways is every bit as impressive as the Golden Gate. There's the mierda hole which includes Detroit and Flint, and then there's the wild country of upper Michigan, which plays central to Hemingway's early Nick Adams short stories.
    On Hemingway. I personally consider his novels vastly overrated with the exception of that short masterpiece, "Old Man and the Sea." I should be more interested in Hemingway because I spent much time in Spain, and pedaled a bicycle the entire Iberian Peninsula. I also briefly attended Universidad de Salamanca. Hemingway is best in his short stories. In general, his novels fail to move me. The other drunk, F Scott Fitzgerald, is a much better writer than Hemingway.
    I would love to take a month at least and slowly cruise the back roads of upper Michigan, and of course have the bicycle along.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You folks remind of those squirming maggots as you attempt to profit from this pink sheet wet dream, and all you ended up with were sticky fingers and one large loss carry forward. Hope springs eternal, but so does delusion, and that brings us to my favorite stock subject, which is volume. I suspect we shall see bursts in ZNGA daily volume (as witnessed in today's session) with price to the downside as we approach the next lack of earnings report. Of course, ZNGA's P/E ratio will continue to be listed as "not available" or "missing in inaction," and you need not wonder why. Here's what's missing in the perception of the callow ZNGA longs:
    A) There is no fundamental analysis whatsoever, other than the hallucinogenic fancy that "Someone simply must buy this loser at a substantial price premium."
    B) Any concept of value investing is summarized by, "This dog has sunk so low, it just has to go up."
    By the way, both these characteristics are present in the market as a whole. Momentum plays have been all the rage since 2008, and I mildly suggest that fundamentals and value investing, now dead ideas, will once again be in vogue after the averages are shaved 40% this calendar year. ZNGA is only suitable for very adept short term traders playing the roadkill bounces. It is not an investment, but a madcap gamble.

    One more thought: Who is this rather pathetic soul, spam-post? Since I'm no longer one toke over the line, I should send him a zip lock baggie of some on hit wonder. It certainly appears he needs a bit of smokeable reality.

    I was at the Steinbeck Museum in Salinas about six months ago. It's more of a tourist attraction than anything curious for a bona fide bibliophile. However, Steinbeck's vintage green camper/pick-up truck from Travels with Charlie is there and quite enjoyable. More interesting yet is Steinbeck's original high school, a very imposing edifice in the classical style, and barely saved from the wrecking ball without an earthquake retro fit. Steinbeck's alcoholism (like Hemingway's and Fitzgerald's) is the stuff of legend, and the older locals in Salinas still talk about his runners. Like many drunks, he could be very mean and angry when he was on the bottle. On a more serious note, his boozing ways did have a detrimental effect on his son, so read up on his son's writings. That's important to me. I want my own son to know that there is a bit more to his father than the next drink or drug. I guess it's called growing up and striving to be a man of character and principle. With an active addict, the substance always come first, so there is selfishness run riot. How well I know. Too bad I can't become addicted to ZNGA's menu of tedium. It's certainly easier on the liver and kidneys, though a creative mind wastes away from this rubbish.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That recent spring road trip through Death Valley and the Mojave Desert did test my fortitude as it is generally a tempting vice to smoke a bowl of green bud or partake of some peyote if you have access. The beauty of remote places does stir your senses, and like many people, never fully satisfied, I wish to take it another step higher via some mind bending substance. Rest assured that I remain constant and consistent in this battle, even in my deepest moments of doubt. The bottom line is that sans booze and dope, my perceptions have never been more acute. I smell big trouble ahead for our equity markets while the money management professionals predict slow but steady growth. Something gives and in a major way. Recall how few grasped the underpinnings of 2008 until after the fact. We never really entirely escaped the structural flaws which caused that unpleasant experience. Everything was merely papered over while the rich elite became ever wealthier and the middle class was declared an endangered species. There is something very rotten in Danemark, and it is soon time to pay the piper. ZNGA likely doesn't survive the carnage, and certainly not in its present form. If an outsider is going to purchase this lost cause, it best happen quickly, because when fear has the upper hand, all transactions will be frozen. This is also why ZNGA should sell its building immediately. That property is the only profitable acquisition ever made by Boy Pinky. The SF Bay Area is in
    the midst of one more massive real estate bubble. It and the stock market will burst.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I simply had to find a convenient way to hide all those windfall profits from shorting the ZNGA Brain Trust, and by the way, I do speak excellent Spanish. Like most of the wealthy elite, I merely talk about social equity in sound bites, but in reality, taxes are for the common plebeians.
    Summary: The greatest threat to the American way of life is the enormous acceleration in the concentration of wealth. Take a look at the amount of capital controlled by less than 3% of our population, and that trend continues to grow. It may work in a two bit dictatorship, but it is in no way sustainable in a democracy. At some point when you pull the masses away from their Willky Wonka ZNGA fantasies, they will rise up. Things can and will get very ugly.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Current market conditions should be played strictly in terms of pure mathematical probability, and the odds heavily favor that we are facing a substantial decline (Crash anyone?) in the averages before this calendar year is out.. This remarkable and unprecedented stock run post 2008 crash lows is done, and merely runs on fumes. Any single unpleasant event, world or national, can tip the scales with lightening speed, and when you add political uncertainties to the mix--a brokered convention with smoke filled rooms--things then get very interesting. Lady Macbeth (Hillary) now appears a foregone conclusion but her bag of skeletons and unbridled ambitions should be nothing for Wall Street to celebrate. Now consider how a hype junk stock like ZNGA will perform in the coming environment. Remember, ZNGA doesn't have a dime in earnings, and it only products are asinine fads for people lacking in any sense of intellectual curiosity. The population at large is programmed by such idiocy, and it will be difficult to predict exactly how they will behave when times are difficult, a situation possibly more serious than 2008. You only know they will be very willing to trade freedom for some semblance of economic and emotional security. Downside risk in stocks looms enormous.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Merle Haggard dead at 79 today.
    Another legend bites the dust.
    A real song writer and a real guitar picker.
    Yet the mass illusion of ZNGA persists.
    I always found Haggard's roots--Bakersfield, CA.--a rather interesting town if you look behind the cover.
    It's a great place to hop a freight car and do the infamous run ("The Loop") up to Tehachapi.
    One of the most famous rail lines in the world.
    Now read the blog of Hobo Shoestring.
    A fascinating character.
    Not interested in ZNGA's asinine drugs of conformity.
    I think the boozing finally killed him.
    May he and Merle rest in peace.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    We can differ on our ZNGA analysis, and clearly, the major carnage has already occurred with this travesty, and a rational person would simply move on to new prey. I do however like something about the way you write, as there is some semblance of reasonable articulation, a rare quality on these message boards. I do anticipate very dark days ahead for the stock averages, but I just can't call it with any degree of precision. I see downside risk as greater than 2008 for a host of reasons, foremost is that in terms of massive consolidation in the financial industry, risk is concentrated to the extreme in a handful of major players, and Congressional legislation should have accomplished the exact opposite, that is, to spread risk. This shall be the market's undoing. All it takes is some ZNGA style black dog event. It occurs before this calendar year is out. I would also say the popular attraction of Donald Trump is disturbing to say the least. He is a litmus test of the nation's mood, which is tense and restless, just like the stock market.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We have the classic pump and dump here, and the syndicate is quite content to shave for a quick 48 hour 3% return. The ZNGA amateur frat boys on this message board are way out of their league, so you best consider the pros sitting at this poker table, absolutely corrupt though they be. The only thing you have in common with with the tribe is that money is your God. This junk pink sheet rubbish still faces much trouble ahead. The much touted cash reserves are burning day in and day out. Repeat after me: "The only way to profit from a ZNGA roadkill bounce is to sell too early."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yesterday's volume burst did pique my interest in this junk stock as there is one thing a stock trader never argues with, and that is volume. However, a one day jump in volume does not a trend make, and we have zero follow through in today's session, which of course is a critical component. In other words, this appears to be more rattle and hum, which is essentially the modus operandi of the ZNGA Brain Trust. Watch out when this hype trades on pure fundamentals because there are no earnings and paying active users are dropping like fruit flies from a rotten fig. Has ZNGA ever been able to list a P/E ratio in its rather sordid history other than "not available?" No, it has not. Hope springs eternal with ZNGA. So do the losses. Keep in mind that the broad averages are headed for a huge decline this calendar year. That will be ZNGA's ultimate day of reckoning. They will run like pigs from a gun.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Another epic 2,249 miles desert road trip just completed, and the ZNGA metaphor continues. From the heights of the East Portal of Mt. Whitney (highest spot in the contiguous United States) to the lowest point in Badwater, CA. at minus 266 feet, and all accomplished in a single day. Badwater, perhaps an appropriate name for ZNGA headquarters, was where I once again experienced a ZNGA epiphany, and I see much trouble ahead for this pink sheet rubbish. These disturbing visions were further reinforced by a visit to Slab City, a fascinating squatters camp of anarchists near the Salton Sea. I did notice that none of the miscreants in Slab City were interested in ZNGA's poisonous touch screen drugs, much preferring to smoke tufts of green herb. This trend will continue until ZNGA is no more. Why allow such idiocy to get in the way of real adventure? Next on the agenda: A wilderness rafting run of the Owyhee River. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, continue to short more blocks of this absolute hype because we once again will break below 200 pennies.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • There was a brief celebration that Mark Pinky had finally achieved Nirvana and will now turn his back on silly touchscreen games and don the orange Hare Krishna robe. As I am a certified cynic, I somehow think he has numerous reincarnations yet to come, and it is noteworthy in this spiritual twist of events that he still holds the majority of the voting shares. Suffice to say, the dead dog did launch off its all time February 11 low of 181 pennies. In so many ways, the ZNGA Brain Trust is much like an erectile dysfunction and it is but a matter of time before this limp biscuit falters once again below $2-. Keep in mind that ZNGA has no earnings and these bounces occur from time to time based on nothing more than hype. The bottom line is that costs exceed revenue at the ZNGA Brain Trust, and this has always been the case since this company went public.

    In terms of the grand landscape, the popularity of this buffoon--The Donald--is mildly disturbing to say the least. The citizenry of our nation are restless and the unthinkable now becomes quite plausible. It might be worth reading how Adolf Hitler arose to power and how quickly a population of sheep will trade freedom for some semblance of so-called order. It is all rooted in economics and the desire for financial security. None of these current trends spell good news for our stock mark or a junk pink sheet issue like ZNGA. I fully expect a nasty decline in the averages this calendar year. Then the political situation gets very interesting.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That geologic wonderland is metaphorically important to ZNGA shareholders. Like ZNGA, it is at a low point, some 282 feet below sea level. ZNGA however, will never see 282 cents again. Rather, the tectonic plate of quicksand upon which the ZNGA Brain Trust is situated continues to sink, and we will go below 200 pennies soon enough. Erosion in geologic time is measured in millions of years. ZNGA, on the other hand, can succumb to the Valley of Death in a matter of weeks and months. It is then just a distant token of human stupidity.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Just a few questions:
    1. Have you yet graduated to a C cup?
    2. When do you go under the knife and live sans pelotas?
    3. Describe the current state of your Adam's Apple.
    4. Is Kaitlyn Jenner your idol?
    5. Do you remain short ZNGA common stock?
    I probably won't recognize you on our next date.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
