  • I have contemplated this deep philosophical question hours on end, and I still find no sufficient explanation. How can human beings willing walk over the edge of a cliff into the deep abyss known as the ZNGA Brain Trust? Perhaps your accountant told you that huge loss carry forwards are beneficial, because you will never have to worry about capital gain taxes for the next decade or so. If you had adhered to the wisdom of Zngathustra, you would have exited this travesty long ago, but alas, hope springs eternal for those under the spell of delusion. Here's one thing I am certain of. We have now broken key technical and psychological support at $2.50, and Mr. Pincus hasn't even released the next nuclear bomb, which is of course the coming lack of earnings report. Yes, we have more trouble ahead. I will cover on this garbage stock, a criminal enterprise in reality, at $1.99. Thus spoke Zngathustrza.

    Correct you are mein lieber Freund. Here's theocrats # 16 through 18.
    16. Is Mr. Pincus owns 10% of the share float, why does he have 60% of the voting shares?
    17. Is there any such thing as a benevolent dictator?
    18. Why didn't the Pacific Heights mansion sell?
    Don't worry Arbuor. There's plenty of dirt to easily achieve the magic number of 95. In so many ways, ZNGA is actually run just like the Vatican. Is the pope indeed infallible?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The miscreant, known only under the pseudonym "Zngathustra," demanded personal audience with Der Neue Fuhrer, Mark Pincus. Prior to his arrest, Znathustra nailed these 15 theocrats to the front door of the nation's largest producer of mind altering drugs, but not before he ignited a rather hefty stink bomb.
    1. Explain Mr. Pinus's market timing secrets in ZNGA common.
    2. How much money did Mark and his insider tribe rape from the fraudulent secondary offering?
    3. How could the $180 million purchase of Drop Something be written off to zero?
    4. If Dr. Don was already fired from Microsoft, why did you waste millions on him?
    5. Will you also write down the $527 million purchase of Unnatural Motion?
    6. What exactly do those 2000 bodies do each day at the ZNGA Brain Trust?
    7. How many will you ax and when?
    8. How many massage therapists are currently on staff?
    9. ZNGA is described as a "dog friendly environment." What the hell does that mean?
    10. How do you plan to make money from fads, and especially in freemium mode?
    11. Will attorney fees at the ZNGA Brain Trust skyrocket?
    12. Specify the loss per share in the next earnings report.
    13. Why is ZNGA's P/E ratio listed as "not available?"
    14. What's on next week's menu at the company gourmet restaurant?
    15. Will ZNGA possibly post a profit within the next decade?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • How pathetic. You can give an athlete many millions of dollars, but many times you cannot erase the ghetto mentality. It's all about ignorance, which by the way, is quite central to ZNGA's menu of drugs. Wasted life. Wasted time.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Isn't it odd and irrational that a man can be attracted to a woman who he already knows deep in his heart will be long term bad, and quite possibly destroy him? Yes, I can be a glutton for punishment, just like a ZNGA shareholder. That's my essential predicament. Of course, I'm entirely aware of China Girl's promiscuous ways, her frequent dalliances with black stallions, and her complete lack of loyalty. Fortunately, I've never been the jealous type, quite opened minded in all things except ZNGA, and I've never been one wanting to own a person like a piece of property. I did ask China Girl to grow old with me as we move into our autumnal years, but she refuses until ZNGA trades below $1.99. Isn't this a sign of trouble to come? Thankfully, I do also have a practical side, so there is a Plan B. Yes, the Third World always beckons and there is that chemical engineer on the other side of the world, quite an intelligent gal. A Nipa hut and a tomato garden look increasingly attractive because that song fell on China Girl's deaf ears. "Try a Little Tenderness"

    In terms of full disclosure: I do utilize the ZNGA message board as my personal diary. My psychiatrist, Dr. JR Silverstein, recommends that I use this message board both to earn a living and an outlet for inner turmoil.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • By the way, bar buzz talk in San Francisco says this was not an amicable boot kick, and tension between Der Fuhrer (the one in the orange jump suit) and Mattrick had been building for months. Here's the simple logic on the timing of Mattrick's exile. It would have been too much for the stock to bear simultaneously to post more losses and issue Mattrick walking papers on the same day. The stock would have entered a rather severe tailspin, which it will do anyway if you remain patient. Actually, we are really talking about a triple whammy because I assume more layoffs are not a question of if, but when. Management has wisely decided that it makes more strategic sense to issue more pain to shareholders one spoon at a time. Have you ever noticed in life a baffling pattern of three events? In other words, if something unpleasant occurs, tighten your bootstraps, because two more spankings are pending. It must have something to do with the Holy Trinity. Oh yes, I also have a minor obsession with the apparently random occurrence of prime numbers.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That 11 cent move was most likely attributed to nothing more than short covering by short term traders, not intrinsic demand for the stock, so probability says we will continue to drift lower and shortly take out $2.38 once again. In a fundamental sense, I see nothing to propel the stock higher as we have broken key technical support at $2.50, and those in the ZNGA lifeboat certainly should notice the sharks circling in heavy seas. The big shark is clearly the next earnings report when ZNGA, ever consistent, will prove to be a non-profit organization. ZNGA's freemium business model is a complete and utter failure and its menu of tedium is not enticing the masses, who have what seems to be endless choices in terms of wasting time. In any case, all these asinine games are nothing but fads with zero utility, and the madding crowd will always rotate from one to the next, as there is no particular loyalty. It is somewhat astounding (and frightening) that the ZNGA Brain Trust, with its bloated dripping lard of two thousand of the best and brightest, apparently can't come up with something that is hot and catchy. I suspect it is much like writing creative lyrics for a hit song. There is no simple formula. Here are the next two shoes to drop at the ZNGA Brain Trust.
    1. The losses about to be posted, and with pending litigation, they would be insane to fudge the numbers.
    2. More layoff announcements of pampered techies. 500 seems a convenient figure at a minimum.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It's that L.E.D. lit contraption you pass through before gaining access to the inner sanctum where the 2000 employees sit idle in their cubicles when they're not playing Candy Crush. I always found something slightly Freudian about the design, and I have no doubt Woody Allen would completely agree with me. The bottom line is that the Tunnel of Love represents the most creative thing ever accomplished at the ZNGA Brain Trust. Once ZNGA enters bankruptcy and is no more, I plan to bid on this Art Deco wonder. I'll simply load it on a flat bed truck and ship it off to Elko, Nevada. The last cat house shut down in that desert town several years back, and I sense a great business opportunity. Yes, sex sells, just as it has back to the days of Caligula. You may now return to Farmville, Version 2.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I don't believe in strict technical analysis because many of the stronger advocates are akin to members of a cult like Iglesia Ni Christo or even Alcoholics Anonymous, and they take their religion to great irrational extremes. In other words, nothing about the stock market is written in stone, and the very best stock traders are quite intuitive, and that cannot be learned from any text. Still, charts do have their place in the tool kit. We saw very strong resistance in ZNGA common at $2.80 and we broke above that figure for a few micro seconds, achieving an ephemeral $2.90 last week. Key technical support was at $2.50, and we are now below that figure with more bad news pending, specifically layoffs and zero earnings. We also have a character (fraudster) in an orange jump suit once again at the helm on this ship of fools, disturbing to say the least. ZNGA is on its last gasp. Among knowledgeable tech people in the Bay Area, this company is a complete joke.

    Summary: The primary trend remains down. Sell into any and all ZNGA roadkill bounces.

    Wasn't this garbage a $2.90 stock last Wednesday?

    Even after a few bouts behind bars, booze and drug related, my teacher's license still remains valid, but not without a prolonged fight, because my sorry record of debauchery can never be expunged. English and other languages are within my vein of interests (and all things mechanical), but it appears a tall order to instruct you in the basics of writing mechanics. Furthermore, language, mundane words, intelligent conversation, and decent music are now all dead concepts in this modern age of enlightenment. Who the hell reads books anymore? What bands play real instruments? That's why we see all the zombies glued to their touchscreens wasting valuable time with such drugs of conformity as proffered by the ZNGA Brain Trust. Still, you and I must meet one day, because I must see the new arbuorplace, Version 2. Meanwhile, short more ZNGA common.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You reply, "The final low is obviously in place for ZNGA, and since it's a screaming bargain, and a major growth stock, I think I'll go on a little bottom fishing expedition. I actually enjoy dining on squaw fish and carp and I always double down on losing positions." Hmmmmm...... Let us examine that proposition in terms of risk/ reward and mathematical probability, and what is the stock market, but a vast set of numerical probabilities? I suggest to you that it is much more likely that ZNGA will break the all time low of $2.09, and swoon even further. This company only keeps it doors open by expending the cash from the initial IPO, and that tidy sum is being eroded on an ongoing basis. No, the ZNGA death spiral from $15- to Dante's Inferno is not yet complete. Karma Yoga still holds the upper hand. The madcap gamblers on this board are almost universally under water on this hype, and there is more pain to come. God told me so, and do you really wish to argue with Him? Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    If you simply short more ZNGA shares, even at the basement price of $2.43, you will shortly have plenty of money for additional hormone therapy and the little operation to remove that slight impediment (protrusion?) which currently prevents you from blossoming into a full flung facsimile of Cher or Judy Garland. In other words, you will shortly become the woman you were always meant to be. I also see plenty of work for you in the future as a headliner in some cabaret. Yes, San Francisco is probably calling. Your strategy is very basic. Use maximum margin buying power to short more ZNGA common. Just sit a a couple of weeks until Mark Pincus must announce accounting irregularities at the ZNGA Brain Trust. Mr. P. will also axe 500 to 1000 pampered techies at his floundering company. Cover at $1.99 or lower, and voila, you are ready for one hell of a shopping spree at Nordstrums, and a new pair of high heels should be high on your list. Life has never been so easy.

  • It is simply because the leverage in Treasury securities is astronomical, and a 0.25% increase inflicts real damage. We are talking about 25 or 50 to 1 bets on Treasuries, and when one takes derivitives into account, it is even higher, in the range of 100 to 1. Wall Street now lives and breathes on funny money, and if the spigot handle is only slightly turned clockwise, we have a real disaster on our hands. It's coming anyway, because this ponzi scheme is in no way long term sustainable. The Russians and the Chinese are completely aware of our predicament, though they have their own troubles. Yes, junk stocks like ZNGA will then disappear. Beware of the time when the market trades on fundamentals. This year.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is found in the US Treasury market, and when this bubble implodes, 2008 will look like a relative picnic. The amount of leverage in government paper is astounding, and Wall Street can borrow against these dubious bonds at 95% collateral. That money in turn is funneled into equities. This grand ponzi scheme will unravel, and the day of reckoning is closer than most think. The carnage will be compounded by complex derivitive contracts. This is precisely when junk stocks like ZNGA are pulverized. It occurs this calendar year.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • "I can bring a deeper DNA strand and intensity of focus."
    Summary: This mutant mitochondria is back and continues to replicate.
    Curiously, Mr. P. owns 10% of the float and 60% of the voting shares.
    Shareholder money has always been used as ZNGA's personal piggy bank.
    This outfit cannot survive on any old fashioned notion of profit.
    Cash assets are being expended at warp speed, so 500 to 1000 techies must be axed.
    Do you possibly think the stock will react positively to this next inevitable event?
    Toss good money at hype and fads at your own peril.
    There is more pain to come.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We have a disastrous earnings report pending. That's a given, and much explains the departure of Mattrick. You should also anticipate rank and file layoffs on the order of 500 bodies, possibly more. Paint this pig any way you wish, but it is still a pig.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Let us look at today's volume and a study of ZNGA volume over recent weeks. Yes, volume predicts price with very high mathematical probability.

  • But here's the real question I want to ask. How does one explain the 10 cent push and shove on ZNGA in yesterday's session, and on zero fundamental news? You already know I never met a conspiracy theory I didn't like, as paranoia runs very deep in my veins. Just ask my psychiatrist, Dr. J R Silverstein. Yes, encourage the sheep, and then lead them to the slaughter house. Do you really think there is an honest and free flow on information on Wall Street? Are you nuts? Truth is only revealed over the long haul, and ZNGA's truths are plain ugly. More shall be revealed. Everything else is rattle and hum. Watch this garbage stock break below $2- post the coming disastrous lack of earnings report.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It won't sell at $18 million, a cool $two million more than he paid for it two years ago. It was withdrawn from the market. Do you ever attempt to discover patterns in supposedly unrelated events? Yes, a poetic mind is required.

    31 Pennies Away From The All Time Low

    How the hell could I possibly ever have worked at ZNGA? Would they let me drink on the job like my current position with Vulture Capital Management does? I'm also hopeless with tech gadgetry, much preferring a welding rod or a wrench in my hand. SFJlegend sent me an iphone a few months back, and I'm still trying to figure the damn thing out. I'm an old school dinosaur.
