  • If you want to really understand what this man is about, read his blog. His writing skills are way above average, and certainly not what you would expect from a supposed vagrant.
    You may now return to Farmville, Version 2.

    Leos are leaders, not followers of the sheep. We have fire in our blood, though also having a tendency to be extremely egocentric. In females, we require the calming influence of the water sign to counter our extremely impulsive natures.

  • One sentence and she can cause this market to swoon 1500 points immediately. That's how tenuous conditions are. Meanwhile, Wall Street, the money center banks, and the Jewish infrastructure of our nation all drool over her next pronouncement. I find it all a bit disgusting. This ponzi scheme is running late in the game. Anyone who has bet against the Federal Reserve over the last five years has been pulverized as printed money has ramped this market ever higher. However, a bet against the Fed is increasingly attractive. Soon the market will dictate terms to the Federal Reserve, and not the other way around. That's when ZNGA receives a very severe spanking.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Hobo "Shoestring" on youtube. His page on Facebook is the only one I visit.
    I suppose most would label him as a vagrant bum, alcoholic, and dope fiend.
    Likely enough, he's extremely intelligent. Couldn't fit into the trappings of the modern world.
    I'm going to respect that he turned his back on the conventions of life.
    I'm also biased because I am a train nut myself and rode the rails in the mid-seventies.
    Even hid in the locomotive cab of an Amtrak from Eugene to Portland once.
    You can bet old Shoestring is not playing Farmville 2.
    Carpe Diem brothers and sisters.
    It's a pretty quick ride.

    I am of the opinion that the 5000 post mark will be a significant milestone, so I ought to remain busy with my obnoxious verbosity. With the exception of Leo Tolstoy in War and Peace, very few have managed such a vast output. I believe my very first post was labeled, "ZNGA, a Comedy of Errors." This scam stock was trading at $14.19 at that time, so you must admit, my view has been essentially the correct one. The shorts have had a virtual heyday (or is it hayday?) with this hype and the suffering is still not over. My psychiatrist, Dr. JR Silverstein, suggests that I require formal treatment for full blown ZNGA message board addiction, and I have agreed to enter Duffy's Rehab House in the Napa Valley, or possibly Hazelden Clinic in Minnesota, after ZNGA crashes through $2-. It won't be easy to ween myself off of this obsession, but if I focus on the Third Step, I might enter a period of recovery where I can again focus on the really important things in life. Speaking of important things, I might first attempt sexual healing with China Girl, even though she is now post menopausal. I'm glad to hear you enjoy my banter. I assure you there are more good missives to come. Stay tuned for further developments.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is is my best financial interests to post incessantly, stray off topic, and be as long winded as possible. Someone has to pay the bills and since my father wrote me out of the family trust due to my incorrigible nature, uncontrolled drinking, and numerous stays in jail, I must now accept this humble station in life. I currently receive 25 cents per word, and I will receive a raise to 30 cents when ZNGA trades below $3-, which is very soon. After ZNGA crashes through $2-, my contract stipulates a raise to $1- per word and a bonus in the form of a one way ticket to Bangkok, Thailand. I am asking all the ZNGA frat boys to bear with me until the final ZNGA crash and burn is complete. I am not consciously trying to provoke your wrath. It seems I can't earn any respect around this joint. I had similar problems with the ex-wife.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The anemic volume says this stock bounces right back tomorrow. Long term , it remains in big trouble. Here's the major caveat on tomorrow's session. One minor slip by Janet Yellin can send the averages into an immediate decline. That is extremely unlikely to occur, but the market also has a tendency to sell on the news, even the supposed good news that the Federal Reserve will continue to accommodate the stock market, meaning easy money as far as the eye can see. I can't recall a time in the history of the stock market where there was so much utter fixation on the words of the Federal Reserve with the sole exception of the Nixon era. We should be talking about stagnant wages and long term structural employment. Meanwhile the casino needs to be pumped. This ends badly.

    Some people are made of plastic
    Some people are made of wood
    Some people have hearts of stone
    Some people are up to no good

    But baby, I'm for real
    I'm as real as real can get
    Said if what you're looking for is real loving
    Then what you see is what you get

    --The Dramatics, circa 1971
    If you enjoy soul funk, this tune is the deal.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We are a force to be reckoned with, the Caped Crusaders of Batman and Robin. Of course you already know that I am Batman, and legend rides shotgun. Our aim is to protect Gotham City from the machinations of the ZNGA Brain Trust. Legend has finally come into his own after three months on a gluten free diet, and the lad is sharp. Personally, I'm not so hot on his fetish for pink Spanex shorts, but I am willing to overlook some of the minor indiscretions if we can work together to save some of the sheep on this board. We willing be holding a ZNGA chart reading session tonight at the 21 Club, corner of Turk and Taylor in San Francisco. The drinks will be on us. It's the least we can do after the massive gains from this ongoing ZNGA death spiral. Women and a variety of substances are readily available just outside the front door of the 21 Club. Credit cards are not accepted.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It was also no mere coincidence that ZNGA bounced exactly off the 52 week low of $2.70- some days back. This is just short term price manipulation and if you have a time horizon of 90 days, a rarity on this board, you will witness that these efforts are all in vain. Boys and girls, batten down the main sails, trim the jib, and set the sea anchor because we have some heavy weather ahead. It promises to be very exciting.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    The cascade of selling will occur precisely as psychological support is broken at $3-. You can then expect a 40 million share trading session. The most significant volume burst will occur when the major averages succumb, which could possibly be the case tomorrow in the unlikely event Yellin has a slip of the tongue, but most definitely during the next lack of earnings report in October, only nine weeks away. Then we will witness a burst of volume above 100 million shares when ZNGA once again states that prosperity is just around the corner at some rather vague point in the future. Volume does precede price, and I'm a firm believer in this concept. My read on today's volume is neutral, which indicates many are still sitting on the fence. When those same folks finally capitulate, ZNGA will receive a rather severe spanking.

    Summary: Patient shorts just be justly rewarded on this rubbish. It is already written in the stars and the charts.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The reasoning is actually quite simple. This blow off top in the major averages is running on fumes. SPY volume alone says so. This market could be knocked down 1000 points or more tomorrow from a single word from Janet Yellen. "Tightening" Of course, she won't say that, but there comes a point where the market dictates to the Federal Reserve and not the other way around. We are very close to that key inflection point, within the next 90 days. ZNGA has always been irrelevant, but against this backdrop, it is particularly irrelevant.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    It'snot that shabby. San Francisco just raised the minimum wage. This is still much better than flipping hamburgers at McDonalds, and I do receive certain fringe benefits, such as my errant bar tabs being taken care of. You come into this world alone and you shall leave it alone, with not a single share in the ZNGA Brain Trust.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is highly recommended that all the delusional ZNGA longs utilize this option as perception is 99% of reality. Each time you view a negative comment on ZNGA, immediately put the scoundrel on ignore. Thus, the ZNGA frat boys and cheerleaders can achieve an undiluted purity of thought, a grand consensus so to speak. I've been swimming upstream my entire life, and we will have none of that it. People like myself are corrosion to conformity. Yes indeed, I represent the road not taken. "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry that I couldn't travel both, and be one traveler."

    Summary: The long term ZNGA chart speaks for itself. The tea leaves say we shall meet again at $1.99.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That's why I am most curious as to how Old Yeller will word her language as she addresses the throngs up at Jackson Hole tomorrow while she noshes on caviar and Dom Perignon beneath the spectacular heights of the Grand Tetons. We already know the basic drift of her chat as she appeases the movers and shakers of Wall Street and the money center banks, the Jewish infrastructure and the heart and soul of our nation. "Don't worry. I won't step on your blue suede shoes. I am following in the footsteps of my predecessors, Greenspan and Bernanke. They were made men, and I am the first made woman in this exclusive club. Don't fret, it's free printed money ad nauseum for the 1%'ers." The crowd then roars in applause.

    Summary: There are limits to quantitative easing, and we are at that point right now. This printed money has directly encouraged massive speculation in equities, and it is the height of irresponsibility on the part of the Federal Reserve. This will be the sub-prime fiasco revisited, except the bubble is now in equities. The feeding orgy ends not in a whimper, but a bang. At some point, the currency markets will call Yellen's bluff, and the ponzi scheme collapses. That's when things get very exciting. It's coming sooner than you think.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Perhaps I have been a little harsh on the rabid bulldog these last years, and perhaps this stock is indeed "the bomb," and does merit substantial allocation in my retirement account and my son's college fund. To be truthful, I have never played a single ZNGA game in my life, so my prejudice likely derives from ignorance. I do have that minor problem with my 10 year old Samsung flip phone, as I haven't yet figured out how to access the joys of Farmville, Version 2, in freemium mode of course, because I am on a fixed income, like everyone here is the group home. Hell, I don't even know how to text message, and that primarily explains why my son no longer communicates with me. Yes, I am a dinosaur in the age of technological wonder.
    Nonetheless, I am still puzzled by Mark Pinus' strange love for the issue of his loins--the ZNGA Brains Trust. Why was he, along with his fellow insiders in the tribe, dumping ZNGA shares at $13- to the tune of $600 million? Either Mr. P is a very skilled market timer, or he should be charged with child abuse. Now he has abandoned his love child all together, and I have heard he now mopes in his 16 room Pacific Heights mansion, completely bored with counting stacks of $100 dollar bills. It's like that classic Electric Light Orchestra song, Strange Magic. Jeff Lynn is the bomb.

    I'm all for that. Where do I sign the petition? He definitely has an ax to grind as a full time employee of Vulture Capital Management, the largest hedge fund in North Dakota. Even if he is correct in his long term analysis, meaning $1.99 ZNGA, he is currently taking the wind out of this massive road kill bounce from the $2.80 area. Homeland Security and the Mosad should definitely be on this guy's tail. He's bad news, drinks too much, and then posts incessant gloom and doom in an alcohol induced trance. His other personal habits are questionable as well, especially his antics in the Asian massage parlors. Let's exile the bum to Zamboanga where there is no internet access and his daily diet will consist of dried fish and three day old lumpia. If it weren't for O'Donnell, ZNGA would already be a $6- stock. The guy is just full of it and full of himself. I've had him on ignore for years. His days are numbered on this board. The leprechaun has to go. What kind of company is Yahoo if they allow excessive freedom of speech?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Funny how it didn't say "missing," but rather "wanted."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Open your eyes and take a look. The jobs which weren't shipped off to Asia and Mexico are now being done by robots. It strikes me as nothing less than incredible that Elon Musk can build electric cars with just a 3000 employee work force. That's just 1000 more bodies than the ZNGA Brain Trust. I'll preach this point once again. ZNGA's so-called product has absolutely zero utility, and the company is 100% dependent on discretionary income. A bicycle has utility, and saves you money. Farmville does not. When people are under economic stress, they will not waste money on this rubbish, even if it is only $15- per month. $15- here, $20- there, the $4- Starbucks latte--It all starts adding up and these idle luxuries will go by the wayside. Freemium use will certainly continue, but the sheep pulling out their credit cards to purchase virtual goods will dwindle. This is a long term structural problem for ZNGA. You can't run on freemium or hopium.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
