  • Brothers and Sisters, prepare now for a severe spanking in this rigged casino. Scripture must be fulfilled, and on the third day ZNGA, will not rise from the dead. Many sheep will be slaughtered and their dark red blood will flow thick in the streets. Read the entrails as we speak. Some label me as the Prophet of Doom, but in fact, I am here to save souls and brokerage accounts. Why do you foolishly toss good money at virtual realities, castles of sand? The pillars of this heathen temple, the ZNGA Brain Trust, must be brought down. Only when Mark Pincus is on 6'th Street with his belongings in a Hefty garbage bag will we know for certain that Zngageddon has arrived. You know of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Now you know of Zngathustra.

    God have mercy on the infidels. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • ZNGA holds up relatively well for the moment, but it too will succumb to a decline which will be measured in the thousands of DOW points. Absent a takeover, it is a junk stock. Watch for a day coming soon when oil decisively collapses below $50- and deflation rears its ugly head. Deflation destroys the junk bond market first, so watch for problems there. There are huge amounts of rotten debt floating about.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • odonnellm66 odonnellm66 Jan 3, 2015 11:27 AM Flag

    My point is that ZNGA traded 12.5 million shares on a hangover day where you might have expected maybe 6 million shares to cross the tape. Again, this is a big plus for the longs, but without follow through this Monday, it is just more rattle and hum in the hive. Volume is the key component,and strong volume is absolutely necessary. Let us also see how ZNGA fares when the broad indexes come under heavy selling pressure. If the stock holds up well, it gives a bit of credence to Pinkbone's theory, that someone just might be foolish enough to absorb the ZNGA Brain Trust. Absent a takeover, this stock heads down substantially, especially after more bad numbers are issued at the end of this month.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • They tend to be of a strongly conservative frame of mind willing to increase principal slowly over long periods of time, so you won't find them anywhere near a speculative junk penny stock like ZNGA. Preservation of capital is their number one priority, unlike this casino where the poster boys drool over 30% returns in a few weeks.

    So let me ask this rather critical question. Why are government bond yields dropping like a lead zeppelin? A five year German Bund in fact has a negative yield at today's price. Our own ten year has a paltry 2% return. The answer is many traditional investors are very nervous. What are they worried about?
    Answer: An uncontained downward deflationary spiral

    What's the current downside risk to ZNGA common when deflation strangles equities?
    Answer: A minimum of 30% below $2.70, and perhaps worse.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is of course a net positive. However, the major averages gave back all their substantial gains in short order this morning, and this is a pattern we will see more of. A worldwide manufacturing slowdown, especially reflected in the utter collapse in oil, is becoming quite apparent, and this adds impetus to the deflationary argument. Deflation represents the big picture, and ZNGA does not escape this scenario unscathed, especially since it has never earned a dime in earnings and will post more losses at the end of this month. The only prayer for this outfit is that someone, a major player, absorbs the ZNGA Brain Trust. Pinkbone believes there will be some sort of tender offer shortly forthcoming, but I don't buy it. Give me a string of days of above average volume, at let us say over 20 million shares, and I will reevaluate my opinion. The averages close red today.

    Summary: No Accumulation = No ZNGA Takeover

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yes, that's about how it will look. In other words, the forces of deflation are about to exert themselves on the price of equities, and this entire ponzi scheme is leveraged to the max via unprecedented margin borrowing, and those very great unknowns, highly complex swaps and derivitive contracts. This is all about to unwind in manners not anticipated, exactly what occurred in 2008. Garbage hype stocks with zero earnings--yes, the likes of ZNGA--become burnt toast in the coming environment. It is somewhat curious that the few pro traders who showed up at work today decided to push the sell button. This is just a very small baby step on the road down. I expect a great firework show in January which the Federal Reserve will fight tooth and nail to no avail. There will be many roadkill bounces which don't hold. Yellen will lose control of the Frankenstein she and her former Zionist cohorts created.
    Summary:
    1. Short the SPY at will. Short all the major indexes.
    2. Short junk bond funds at will.
    3. Short social byte stocks at will, ZNGA in particular.
    4. Hold a 20% portfolio allocation in physical silver as an insurance policy.
    5. Short homebuilders, junk like KBH, at will.
    6. Rent don't buy because there will be rock bottom opportunities coming in real estate.

    Let's get ready to rumble in 2015. Deflation is the prevailing theme. Cash is no longer trash. This feeding orgy is over--done--finished. Retail will be the ultimate bagholders as is generally the case. Goldman sells first.

    I am the only one on this board who knows of his finer qualities.
    True, most of us are an odd combination of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
    He happens to be mostly good.
    First and foremost, extreme generosity.
    Because you will know much about a man's inner character by his relationship with money and materials.
    Mr. SFLegend: Thanks for the iphone.
    And the Bitcoin.
    Happy trails and trading to you.

  • It makes a lot of sense to stay away from those whose livers are not properly seasoned.
    Many years of practice are required.
    In other words, be safe.
    Happy New Year to all.
    We have a very exciting year of stock trading ahead of us.
    No, it won't be pretty.
    But the ride of a lifetime.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • 1. Carefully study the gloom and doomers at Zero Hedge.
    2. Reread the Book of Revelations and Bhagavad Gita.
    3. Construct a 12 month chart of oil prices.
    4. Study the Crash of 1929.
    5. Calculate current levels of margin interest.
    6. Google Search: Black Dog Event
    7. Google Search: Armageddon
    8. Google Search: Warburg Pincus clan
    9. Pray morning, noon, and night.
    10.Sell all ZNGA common stock immediately.
    11.Stock up on Jameson whiskey, Pabst Blue Ribbon, cans of Spam, guns, and ammo.
    12.Google Search: Zionist Conspiracies

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • And it shall be resolved to the downside. The evil star of Wormwood now soars above the ZNGA Brain Trust. I have consistently warned that prophecy must be fulfilled on this hype stock and scripture unfolds as we speak. The infidels and money changers must be tossed out of the temple of the Lord on their fat bottoms, and they will squeal in terror like the well greased pigs they are. Those who dwell in virtual realities of fraud and deception will suffer virtual pain. The hour is now getting late. You have but a few hours to dump your entire ZNGA position. Beware of the Antichrist, Pinkbone. He is a mole, a nefarious imp, planted on this message board by the ZNGA Brain Trust. He will take the blind sheep into the Valley of Death. Again I warn you. A black dog event will occur within the inner sanctum of the ZNGA Brain Trust in January. There will be a huge burst in volume as the blind sheep all run for the exit door simultaneously in a massive stampede. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
    Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • In this dirty old part of the city
    Where the sun refuse to shine
    People tell me there ain't no use in preaching
    ZNGA dog, you're so young and pretty
    And one thing I know is true
    You're going to be dead before your time is due
    Gotta get away
    Gotta get away

    Summary: Prepare for a black dog event in January at the ZNGA Brain Trust.
    Yes, Zngageddom it will be, and the delusional longs will be turned to mincemeat.
    If only life were as simple as a virtual reality with zero earnings.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Dear Shareholders: In my New Years message, I failed to thank the owners of this sham outfit, meaning the sheep on this message board, for the compensation package you so kindly granted me, which is obscene by any standards. You have no idea what hanger space goes for at SFO where I have my Gulfstream jet on permanent standby just in case. My employment contract was the impetus behind one of those light bulb moments, and hence I came up with this brilliant game. To refresh your memory, let me briefly outline exactly how I am being paid.
    1. Base salary: $1 million
    2. 2014 bonus: $3 million,maybe higher
    3. My original signing bonus: $5 million
    4. Here's the real meat: You are giving me damn near nine million shares of ZNGA stock, which I must sell before you, following in the enlightened footsteps of Mark Pincus.
    5. I am also granted almost 2 million restricted shares.
    6. I also receive inducement grants to purchase 7.5 million more shares at bottom of the barrel prices.
    7. This all has a potential worth of a cool $50 mil, not quite what Mr. Pincus managed in his back door exit.

    Again, let me say happy New Year to all the sheep and common plebeians on this message board, and may God grant mercy to your brokerage accounts. It all reminds me of that old Sly Stone song--
    Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
    Let's get ready to rumble in this pig sty.
    Membership has its privileges Baby!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Oil is next going to break below $50-, and the ultimate bottom is anyone's guess. It is worth noting that 20% of the high yield (junk) bond market is made up of energy related issues, primarily the frackers, and all it takes is a default here, and a default there, and we then have a full fledged liquidity crisis enveloping in these bonds of dubious character. At $50- per barrel, there's not a single fracking well in this country that is profitable, and probably very few offshore wells. When the junk bonds sink, equities go right along to the basement. Garbage stocks with zero earnings, the likes of ZNGA, are especially susceptible.
    Take note. Commodities are essentially down across the board in today's session, with the exception of gold and silver (up almost 4%). Silver is at least an excellent short term play. Hold through January when equities run into major headwinds. ZNGA will be skewered dog meat burnt crisp.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Dear Shareholders: It is unfortunate that the death spiral has maintained a stranglehold on the ZNGA Brain Trust since I became the new CEO. You probably realize the stock has gone nowhere since I took over the helm of this phantom ghost ship, but keep in mind that Rome wasn't built in a day. True, the Huns didn't destroy it in a day either. I'm just asking for a bit of empathy because I inherited an absolute mess from Der Fuhrer, Mark Pincus, and he's not the easiest person to deal with. I've been desperately trying to offload this bag of lard into the hands of Microsoft or Electronic Arts, but they are not biting, even with my special chumming scent. If I were to take the most rational course of action, I would immediately ax 1000 of the 2000 employees (we call them idlers here at the office), but Wall Street might react negatively to such a drastic course of action. I'm asking for additional time because we are about to post more losses come this January. If you give me another two to three years, I'll most certainly get one of these asinine games to stick. It's simply the law of averages. If we create 20 games, one might remain popular for six to eight weeks. We just keep repeating the process. This is my grand strategy. Thanks for your patience. It might not hurt to say a few prayers. The black dog is down, but he ain't dead, at least not yet.
    Yours,
    Dr. Don

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We moved from a low of $2.32 on December 16 and peaked on December 22 at $2.81, a very healthy percentage move, but with no staying power or follow through. Volume has resumed its lethargic pace, a key concern if you believe anyone is foolish enough to absorb this bloated pig. If a takeover is in the works, the stock should be under accumulation, and there is zero evidence to support this theory. The major averages will succumb to waves of selling in January, as deflation is the primary theme going forward, and well demonstrated by the complete collapse in oil prices. Watch for problems to first emerge in the junk bond market. ZNGA will be taken along for the ride, the only critical difference being that it will decline percentage wise by a factor of three. Ever consistent, ZNGA will post more losses at the end of January. ZNGA will also adopt a new company logo next month: "Free Games for the Masses" Beware of investing in fads, and in the final analysis, that is all ZNGA is.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • If you continue to hold this pink sheet stock, you could very well regret the day you were issued forth from your mother's loins. Woe will become your favorite three letter word. Scripture unfolds on this virtual reality as we speak, and the demise of the ZNGA Brain Trust has already been written in the stars. The bottom line is that God doesn't like ZNGA common stock, and He's not done spanking it. The Oracle of the Tenderloin, meaning me, has carefully read the tea leaves, and January is a most auspicious month. We soon move into the Year of the Goat on the Chinese calendar, and so many of you will be transformed into feta cheese of a most pungent variety. I am here only to save souls and brokerage accounts. You might call it community service. Repent for your misguided delusions, and come to Jesus now. The frightening alternative is that you will soon be picking up a job application for Wall Mart. Repeat after me:

    The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want ZNGA common stock.

    If art is essentially imitation, at least initially, you have done a good job here. However, a serious writer must eventually develop his own personal style, and you have not manged this, so keep practicing.

    We should all pray for SFlegend's full recovery from this pernicious spiritual malady. This holiday period can be such a lonely time of year, and many hit the bottle with a take no prisoner mentality. SFlegend is actually a diamond in the rough. I will have you know that he mailed me an iphone last week for Christmas, no strings attached so far as I can tell, though I may bring him to the Korean health spa on Larkin Street (as part of his recovery program) when he presents the keynote address at the next Apple Conference in San Francisco this spring. He also sent me 0.25 Bitcoin many months ago, which promptly crashed, through no fault of his own. In other words, his generosity knows no bounds. True, he has his odd quirks, as we all do, but he is of the Holy Spirit. What have you done for your fellow man lately? You will know them by the way they love one another.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It has always smelled funny to me, or as Mark Twain more or less said, "Lies, damned lies, and accounting." Let me encourage you to read this rather interesting article from the doom and gloomers over at Zero Hedge, the same folks who have been predicting the end of the world for eons. Even if there is a grain of truth to this piece, we are in big trouble.
    "Blackrock Stunner: S&P 500 Profits Are 86% Higher Than They Would Be Without Accounting Fudges"

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yes, the infamous tramp stamp--The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I do like to maintain an open mind in all things except ZNGA, but I'm having a bit of a problem with these adornments. I think it has something to do with my strict Catholic upbringing and four years of the Jesuits. I thought women were symbols of virginal purity which could tone down our baser male instincts and impel us on a spiritual path of righteousness. Clearly, there is something missing in this picture. I know I digress from the subject at hand, but I have no doubt there is vast experience on this message board in areas beyond the banality of the stock market. My psychiatrist suggests that I just close my eyes and recite four Hail Mary's. I'm open to your suggestions, between now and when the ZNGA death spiral resumes. Thanks for any help.

    It is quite unfortunate that we lost one more great musician. I especially liked the brief period when Joe Cocker player with Leon Russell on keyboards. I guess Joe left through the bathroom window. How will you exit this hype stock, and at what price?
