  • Silver is not participating, but it will. Who's seeking a safety haven? Who are these people?
    By the way, safety is not to be found in US Treasuries, not over any extended period.
    Definitely not corporate bonds, even AAA.
    Clearly not junk bonds.
    Something gives, and gives in a very big way.
    The truth,
    According to Zngathustra.

  • We are only on the mere cusp of weakness in the financials. Just wait until their phony accounting (mark to market has been officially suspended), following in the illustrious footsteps of the Federal Reserve, must face the light of day. What's a widget worth on any given day if you must sell it? Whatever the market is willing to pay. Therein lies a great problem, and it is the exact dilemma ZNGA faces. Therefore, be very careful if you buy into the takeover argument. When the herd stampedes in fright, they sell, not buy. They shed risk, not adopt it.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is very unusual market activity, which I have never witnessed in 30 plus years in the markets, and definitely not in January. I open to your explanations. I have my own theories of course. Something is very rotten in Danemark. Don't get caught with your pants down with pinkboned dangling. This will be one exciting year for stock traders. Junk bonds swoon first. Then stocks. 20% hedge with physical silver, just as a prudent insurance policy. This is no January effect. January defect.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • ZNGA: One of the most manipulated stocks trading on the Nasdaq. A pox on the house of the Kosher Nostra and their most obvious machinations. Watch out when this garbage stock responds to classic supply and demand curves, meaning free price discovery. All it will take is a single entity trying to dump a 5 to 10 million share block. Ouch. Mierda in and mierda out.

    ZNGA and the Market Down Days

    Yours is quite an accurate observation. ZNGA exhibits excellent resilience on down market days (a technical plus), as we now sit almost 300 DOW points down, and I don't know how to accurately explain this phenomenon. ZNGA often declines on a rally in the indexes. Perhaps the traders are distracted by the bigger picture, and ZNGA just remains in the backwater of their problems. We have yet to witness a really nasty trading session on the order of 1000 DOW points, but it is coming soon, and ZNGA likely does not escaped unscathed. The main thing to focus on is the next earnings report, and I fully expect more losses. Then we see a huge burst in volume as the delusional longs throw in the towel, and this time, they will not take it back thread by thread. Volume is key should you believe in the takeover innuendo, and I still see no evidence.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That's just the way the deflation cudgel works. It swings in a very wide swath. One case in point is Tesla (TSLA). The stock has been ahead of itself for quite some time, and it faces several headwinds, not the least of which is the huge decline in the price of gasoline. I wish Elon Musk all the success in the world, as he is one of the few who thinks outside of the box. Nonetheless, his company's stock has very large downside risk, on the order of 30% or more. The economic arguments for expensive electric cars decrease as oil decreases, and it looks like we will break $40- per barrel. Deflation inflicts pain with utter impunity.
    Summary: If a quality company like Tesla experiences a rout, what happens to garbage like ZNGA whose only product is a long infantile line of zeros and ones, and 97% of all active users don't pay a dime for this rubbish. Invest in fads at your own peril. Here today. Gone tomorrow.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Take a close look at FAZ. Because of time erosion and resetting properties, it is one very dangerous stock, and leveraged to the hilt by a factor of three. It can be one very exciting ride, thus the attraction for those in the ZNGA casino, but your timing must be damn near impeccable. It is primarily designed as a short term trading vehicle, and if you hold it long enough, you most likely will lose money over the market reflex bounces. However, the profit potentials are astounding (1000%), particularly if you believe, as I do, that a market crash is close at hand, and we experience a sustained decline. Here's the key consideration. The accounting standards of the major money center banks are about as phony as ZNGA's New Math. Very little of their so-called assets are marked to market, and in a deflationary scenario, this is one pending tsunami, especially when derivitive risk is taken into account. This is for designated gambling capital only, and not to be considered as traditional investing. Roll the dice baby!

  • Jeff Grundlach, one of the few analysts I deeply respect, suggests this might be the case. Clearly, this is a flight to supposed quality, and I use the word quality rather loosely. The obverse side of this coin is what will happen to high yield (junk) bonds, where the quality is extremely dubious. You should be watching HYG, the largest junk bond ETF in this country, as a key indicator whether you have a position in it or not. Now consider what deflation will do to home prices, which experienced a nascent recovery over the last five years. I hope you observed the big decline in KBH yesterday. It is one more warning sign.

    Summary: Deflation will devastate the major averages and takes a sham stock like ZNGA right along for the ride, the only difference being that ZNGA will decline by a percentage factor of three.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Then add additional shares at $2.40, $2.30, and $2.20. This way you decrease your average cost per share. It makes perfect sense to chase a losing position. The key is to average down on the road to the basement and await a massive roadkill bounce which is inevitable. I wouldn't worry about the coming earnings report. The market has already priced in the fact that ZNGA will continue to lose money and will soon qualify for non-profit status in terms of IRS regulations. ZNGA isn't about the banality of mere profits. Its calling is much higher, a religious mission really. The company aims to improve the state of mankind with free entertainment.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • In the grand scheme, this is chump change when you consider ZNGA has an absurd 1 billion shares floating in La-La land. However, the price of the stock will be severely punished should anyone place such a modest sell order. This is telling you something. There is not much interest on the buy side. This stock is a mere speculative play rife with risk, and we increasingly see a market mentality which wants to shun risk. Coming soon: A single session where we trade down 600 to 1000 DOW points--maybe more if there is an actual catalyst, like an unpleasant event on the world stage.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • There comes a day, sooner than most think, when we have a nasty decline with no recovery. It increasingly appears that the pros are playing for quick profits with very limited commitment. This is a danger zone, but most will hear the alarm too late.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    All we have is a mild downward bias on absolutely miserable volume, and this is on a day the averages are very strong. It's pretty clear that the pros or anyone with an ounce of sense is not the least interested in this garbage. Those that already entered this comedy of errors are living on a prayer, that the next earning report won't be an unmitigated disaster. Yes honey, prosperity arrives any day, certainly within the next decade. Meanwhile, bloated management and 2000 highly compensated techies will bleed this outfit dry. Watch out when volume picks up later this month. It won't be pretty. Let's put this dog down as a simple act of kindness.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Should I have another beer on this notion?

    Do you think for a moment that God wants sheep, or someone who would kill 150 plus young people in a Pakistani school? Yes, He will allow the devil, and how better do we describe these travesties? All of this must be resolved, and the stock market is highly symbolic. It will not turn out well. Unbridled greed, with no concern for the little ones.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We are talking about asset deflation, and it will hit equities, junk bonds first, and junk stocks like ZNGA, with zero earnings. It explains much of the relent volatility. A hard rain gonna fall.

    Therein lies the truth, or great fiction.

    Then you shall the power of The Holy One.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It was all accomplished minutes before the close via computer programs. What's that tell you? The options boys were pushing on the stock as they well knew the ratio of puts to calls. It was in their best financial interests to push the stock up six cents. This has absolutely nothing to do with fundamentals, free price discovery, or actual investor demand, and you best consider it a rather small blip on your screen. Options Fridays generally unwind in the opposite direction when trading resumes, so you can expect a down day for ZNGA on Monday. These blatant options related price manipulations are best accomplished with a thinly traded penny stock like ZNGA. The antics are much more difficult to carry out successfully with a large cap stock trading on healthy volume. ZNGA volume remained extremely anemic at 10.6 million shares. Watch out below. We have a fascinating week of trading before us. I fully expect the dramatic volatility to continue.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • There's been plenty of it today.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I am going to urge the Zionist Central Bank to dump more printed money at this stock market before the selling gets out of hand. Our entire economy is now dependent on the price of stocks, not actual productivity. She usually heeds my sage advice. Raise interest rates? Hell no. In your dreams. Helicopters as far as the eye can see.
    Aside: This charade ends in disaster. The Federal Reserve has subsidized blind speculation, and this bubble pops. No, it explodes, and takes ZNGA along for the ride. We have massive misallocation of capital, very similar to the subprime crisis.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
