  • Brothers and Sisters: I have consistently warned you of this type of dangerous technical action, when ZNGA meanders and goes nowhere on more than two times average daily volume, and this occurred on a session where we had the proverbial roadkill bounce in the broad averages, though this will be a very brief blip and measured in hours. Clearly, ZNGA was not able to participate in today's upward trajectory, and you ought to ask why. What we have here is a stock rotating from strong hands to weak hands, and much of the volume was computer generated. Smart money doesn't go near this junk stock except to short it or day trade the roadkill bounces, and I have no talent for the latter. The downward decline continues in ZNGA, and we have much more selling ahead in the indexes.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    What are TVIX and UVXY signaling today?

    I rather think you ought to use the ignore feature on this board liberally while you continue to lose more money on ZNGA common stock. There's nothing so uncomfortable as when one's panties are all bunched up in a knot. it becomes such a soggy mess. Marissa Meyer recently told me I have the highest ignore ratings of any of the Yahoo Finance message boards, and I take great pride in that fact.

    I trust you can eventually give me a more creative response. Irony is of particular interest to me. I also want you to read that American classic novel, The last Tycoon. The subject matter of that wonderful book does have some bearing on the current state of our stock market.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Here's my current dilemma: What on earth shall I do once ZNGA is delisted from the Nasdaq, and Mark Pinky dons a set of prison oranges? How will this vast void be filled? My ex-wife went so far as to make the outrageous suggestion that I get a real job, but the monthly stipend from Vulture Capital Management has been adequate for sustenance and my hefty bar tabs.

    But back to this travesty of a stock. What say you about today's ZNGA volume burst, almost twice the average daily? I am OCD about all things, but especially volume. Is mass capitulation pending, and we then see a single trading session where more than 50 million shares attempt to escape this comedy of errors? Repeat my favorite stock mantra after me: "Volume precedes price with very high mathematical probability."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You will simply love cheap gasoline at the pump, but first consider the greater implications of the absolute rout in commodities, and that rout must now transfer to the credit markets (junk bonds specifically) and equities. By the way, don't go near the purchase of a house in this environment, certainly not in the SF Bay Area where a shack goes for in excess of $1 million. There will once again be bargains galore. Cash will be king, but the slight problem is that so few will have access to cash, as their capital is tied down to illiquid assets like ZNGA. Short this market at will and keep substantial amounts of powder dry. Thus sprach Zngathusta. Verstehen Sie?

    Arbuorplace: Do you remember the men's restroom near the old Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park? Yes, where the girlie men loiter and scribble messages on the walls. Meet meet me there after today's market close. There can be happy endings to all things except ZNGA.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Take note of the huge volume surge in both as well. Yes Dorothy, we are in a period of great volatility, and price will be to the downside. 95% of all listed issues do not qualify as buy and hold candidates and the carnage will run to great extremes, even for quality companies with actual products and earnings. This leads me to ask a most pertinent question. What becomes of the ZNGA Brain Trust? There are no earnings, and active paying users are vanishing at a rapid clip. Moral of the story: Invest in fads and frauds at your own peril.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We need to be up 400 DOW points, and it clearly isn't there. One can only surmise that much more selling is ahead. Ah, wam, bam, thank ya maam!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Ziggy Stardust just departed from our planet, and now it is time for the ZNGA longs to fall back to earth.
    Just don't crash and burn upon reentry.
    "Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare."

    ZNGA: Infinite Jest

    It is only spam to those of you who are not avid readers. Most on this message board focus on touchscreen virtual realities-- the common mindless ZNGA porn-- so this comes as no great surprise, as serious reading is dead to a great extent. This is a very good time to consider systemic risk because this entire market, and especially rubbish stocks like ZNGA, are headed for a great fall. Although the futures are currently down, I do expect a very healthy reflex rally this week, and as soon as tomorrow's session. This roadkill bounce doesn't last long, selling resumes in short order, so you must trade this sucker's rally quickly and with an acute sense of timing. This is not the time to buy and hold for 95% of all listed issues. For those long, we now have a short term trading environment, and I mean very short term, and to be measured in days and hours.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    If you wish to fully grasp why I abhor ZNGA and the sickness it represents, try reading the novel by David Foster Wallace, which just so happens to be titled--you guessed it--Infinite Jest. I'll warn you in advance that this tome runs over 1000 pages with copious amounts of footnotes. Wallace was quite interested (obsessed really) with how the pixel screen mentality has changed everything about how modern man lives and has altered our perception of reality. There's also a fairly good movie based on his interview with a Rolling Stone journalist. David Foster Wallace struggled for many decades with dark thoughts, drug use, boozing, and misogynistic tendencies until he commit suicide at 46. I can of course personally relate to him on any number of counts. We are however talking about this junk stock ZNGA, not a course in American literature. I am of the opinion that that the recent decline continues.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yes, I know all about the free meals, the gym, and the beer pong tournaments, but in terms of productivity-- meaning actual work-- what do these folks do each day? I am at a complete loss.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Probability says this will occur, but you must enter and exit rather quickly. I would simply seek midrange points and leave coins on the table because this sucker's rally will be quite brief, and selling resumes in short order. In other words, don't be greedy and sell too early. The downside will not ultimately be measured in 1000 DOW points, but many thousands. ZNGA is particularly vulnerable in this environment because its only prayer is that someone is foolish enough to purchase its failed business model. However, we are undergoing a dramatic transition from greed to fear and the risk switch is being turned off. Thus, speculative deals with high risk will now be shunned, as the mantra becomes preservation of capital. Meanwhile, the ZNGA Brain Trust, with the dripping lard of 1600 pampered and spoiled techies, will continue to bleed the much touted cash assets. It is a not for profit organization.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • If you have never enjoyed the subtle mysteries and eroticism of the Orient, you must put it on your to-do list, that is, if you happen to have any capital remaining after this travesty of a company crashes and burns. Many of you now require permanent residence in an opium den to soothe the pain, and I can recommend a few spots. Do you notice how this hype junk stock bleeds drip by drip? Actually, the blood was more of a flow than a drip yesterday and today. I just wanted to thank the ZNGA Brain Trust for funding my early retirement. Mark Pinky should also thank you folks for buying $200 million of his ZNGA paper at prices near $13-. His tribal brothers dumped another $400 million during the lockout period.

    The pressing question is where does this acute flagellation end? Below $2-.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The reflex bounce just vanished. This is a very important technical negative.
    Stock crash pending.
    Short at will.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You already know the neighborhood. Corner of Castro and Market Streets. I want you to wear the same dress and high heels as the last time. Yes, the pink boa as well. Who said Judy Garland was dead? Bring your ZNGA charts. I'm on the wagon once again, but I'll buy your lady drinks. I have a feeling we will be discussing a negative close for today, which can only mean major fireworks are in store for the markets. Hell, I might even extend an invitation to Mark Pinky. He's been known to take a walk on the wild side.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The ZNGA chart is looking very sick indeed, and we have yet to witness the volume burst when liquidity becomes a very serious issue. Virtual realities clearly have more than a few shortcomings, and we have once again broken critical technical support at $2.50. I'm reading a Kosher Nostra sell signal on this garbage. Here's the solution to relieve all this stress of chasing a lost cause. Pull out the peace pipe now. Tamp a few morsels of that California green bud. Ignite. Inhale and hold, but please don't bogart. Now pass it over to me. Isn't this a much better virtual reality?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Get the hell out out of this market.. Short at will and with leverage. There's much more selling to come. Both AMZN and FB recouped 2% this morning. ZNGA? Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis blues again.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I actually think my services are better put to use with those perennial doom and gloomers at Zero Hedge.

  • This roadkill bounce, should it occur, won't last very long. If we close flat or down tomorrow, that would be a bit disturbing for the Monday open. In so many ways, we are in uncharted waters. I have never seen such levels of risk and complacency, and I am in my autumnal days. The bottom line is that over a broader measurement of time--the next six months--we are headed down, and down in a major way. ZNGA's timing for the next lack of earnings report might coincide with mass exodus from stocks. Junk stocks will be vaporized.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
