    The #$%$ Diaries with Kaitlyn Jenner

    Please substitute #$%$ with the word clam. I did use the proper anatomical term by the way, just as they do in medical school.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I just forwarded this brilliant idea to Mark Pincus. Surely such an innovative game can break ZNGA out of the current death spiral. Just look what Kim K. did for GLUU. As things are at the moment, this stock can't seem to buy a green day.

    As stated before, the ideal scenario is for a 20 cent pump pre-earnings, which ought to make a ewe like yourself happy. The Kosher Nostra can easily accomplish this simple task, and it can be done with very minimal capital, a couple million here and a couple million there. You see, hope springs eternal from the flock, even without a rational basis, and you will buy into this push and shove. Mr. Pincus will also make some earth shattering announcement during the earnings call to temper the blow--this silly game or that silly new game, but Wall Street is no longer patient with pipe dreams full of green bud. More spankings to come.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Look, I have bills to pay just like everyone else. I did rid myself of China Girl (high maintenance and post menopause), but I still have expenses, and I was written out of the family trust. I like this job because it allows me a certain level of freedom, and I'm not confined to some cubicle. I can sit at the bar here and incessantly post while I down my next Pabst Blue Ribbon. When I get tired of this dive, I just move on to the next gin house with wifi. I just want to reassure everyone that I do abide by a certain code of ethics and integrity. I am a high seeker of truth.
    Truth is beauty
    And beauty truth
    That is all there is
    And all there is to know

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Go to Pastebin. It was posted on July 7, so it is recent.
    Title: "Top-heavy mess of a company"
    OK, we take these things with a grain of salt, and the author, of course, must remain anonymous or he gets canned. I do however believe this is a legitimate piece of writing. Boys and Girls, if you don't do your homework, don't trade stocks.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Do you seriously believe the floor traders (market makers) will attempt to support this junk stock when push comes to shove? Hell no! They won't put their own capital at risk, and why should they? The buyer of last resort will be the ZNGA Brain Trust itself as they still have a few coins rattling around. That might buy the company a bit of time with other people's money-- the fools who purchased ZNGA between $10-and $15- -- but we are still talking about a company which can only be described as "total fail."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • How can a penny stock decline 4 cents in the space of two seconds? I really don't give a damn what ZNGA does day to day, but this type of price action perfectly illustrates ZNGA's atrocious liquidity. Someone tries to unload a 200,000 share block, chump change for a $2.3 billion market cap, and the stock immediately drops in micro seconds. You should be very concerned when we encounter real selling on a session where more than 50 million share attempt to escape this travesty. It could get very ugly.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Here's another interesting point. I read Zero Hedge for the articles, not the comments. I read Business Insider for the comments, not the articles. I often wonder about my cynicism. Is it nature or nurture? Was I overly abused as a child? Is it unbridled alcoholism? Could it perhaps be a genetic malady, as the family tree is a bit disturbing? Unless I'm pedaling my bicycle down the coast of Big Sur or hitting on hot Marin County divorcees, my world is one of gloom and doom. That explains the attraction to the Armageddon folks at Zero Hedge, who have been tooting on the same horn for what seems forever, and the universe still muddles on, and in the midst of an unprecedented stock rally. I also ask what's the difference between a cynic and a skeptic? Finally, I ask, which comes first? Faith or hope? These are actually all very important questions for a stock trader. All I know is that I do not know. I am only certain on a single point. The ZNGA death spiral is not yet complete as Karma Yoga has yet to fully unfold. How do I Know? God told me so, and I never argue with the Holy Spirit unless I happen to be sitting on a bar stool.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I forgot to mention one point. The banana is key to the ploy, and you don't want one overly ripe. I think you follow my drift.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • With such windfall gains from the ZNGA death spiral, I won't give a damn about the Whole Food price rigging or that 8 ounces is actually 6 ounces. I will have become an official member of the trendy set, a New Age foodie. Here's the unknown secret of Whole Foods. If you cruise the produce aisle, you can set a trap for some very hot divorcees with big bank accounts from their ex-husbands. It's all about presentation, and you carefully handle the grapes, strawberries, and bananas with massage like tenderness.. There's just something very sexual about fruit, and if you do things properly, these gals immediately pick up on the vibrations. Next, you pretend to know much about French Impressionist painters. No, you never let the women know that you drive a 1968 VW bus, but instead hint that the 911 Porsche Carrarara is in the garage for routine maintenance. I've had much success with these tactics in the Marin County Whole Food outlets, especially the one in Mill Valley.
    But back to Whole Foods, symbol WFM. Ouch! ZNGA ain't the only company hurting. WFM off 11%, with more downside to come.

    What I like about you, and I don't have to agree with the position, is the ability to articulate clearly in the written language. In a touchscreen world, this has become the rarest of commodities. Without proper articulation and logic, 95% of the poster boys are just stabbing in the dark, and that's pretty much what you encounter on any given message board. From your use of language, I can tell you are a reader and an educated man. Quality reading and quality music are pretty much dead notions in current mass culture, which can only mean that ZNGA should sign some agreement with Kaitlyn Jenner. The stock would then immediately skyrocket.
    Shame on us. Shame on the public school system. Shame on ZNGA. Shame on FB.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • In the first 90 minutes of trading, FB will already surpass two times the daily average volume. Here's the critical difference between FB and ZNGA, and I do repeat myself ad nauseum. FB has excellent liquidity, and there's plenty of retail willing to pick up the shares after the modest 4% decline. They absolutely believe that FB is the future. The pros are selling FB, and the public is buying. The huge problem for ZNGA is that it has extremely poor liquidity. When more losses are posted, retail has already been severely burned by this junk stock, and rather than continue to bottom fish, they throw in the towel in mass capitulation. "I've had enough spanking." The most pertinent question then becomes this. Where does the bid side come from? Any reputable fund manager doesn't go near this garbage. Now you understand. The bid will be hard to find and drop like a rock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This entire market appears increasingly schizophrenic. With the baked in expectations of easy profits, it can and will turn on a dime. That climate presents somewhat of a dilemma for a ZNGA short, as expectations for this pathetic company are so low, and this explains why I would like to see a 10 to 20 cent push and shove on this junk stock pre-earnings. Delusional ZNGA longs: Get to work and start buying. You are part of my master plan. We are looking at a major crash in the averages in the next four months. A most dangerous consideration is that the Federal Reserve has already spent its seed. You should dread the day we return to free price discovery in stocks.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It remains to be seen how big money reacts at tomorrow's open, but there may be a strong tendency to lock in gains before further declines, and the broad averages are extremely susceptible at this critical juncture. Here's the primary reason I hope for a nice FB decline. Imagine for a moment if the highlight of our night's fun and games (Spankfest 2015) could be Boy Zuckie (the wild game hunter) and Mark Pincus (the master market timer) frolicking in a little bout of Greco Roman wrestling. Twitter feeds would skyrocket through the roof. Even though they are members of the same tribe, we already know of the bad blood between these social byte CEO's (one reincarnated from the dead), which resulted from that nasty divorce between FB and ZNGA a few years back.. This could potentially be more exciting than Tom Cruise and John Travolta twisting and turning on the mat together. Stay tuned for further developments, and short ZNGA common with wild abandon. ZNGA: The gift which keeps on taking.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    At least we have a voice of reason here. The borrowing of shares, otherwise known as shorting a stock, and subsequent short covering, which tends to stabilize a stock in decline, are all widely misunderstood concepts by retail at large. You can also short no stock without a margin account, nor can you short a stock if there are no shares available to be borrowed. You hit the nail on the head on this point. If there is limited short interest in any given stock, any short squeeze will either not occur or be extremely brief in duration. In other words, there will be practically no short squeeze to speak of in ZNGA common if the days to cover ratio is let's say less than two. I generally feel uncomfortable shorting any stock with a days to cover ratio of 6 or greater, as you might be jumping on a bandwagon, and thus subject to a genuine short squeeze should the price of the stock accelerate.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I have the cajunas to post under my real name, and you just have multiple pen identities, and the worst of it is that you have zero ability to articulate anything. Even the Twitter character limit imposes huge challenges to a feeble mind.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Bring your cowboy chaps, sans undies of course. SFJLegend ought to be on hand with his riding crop for all shareholders who enjoy pain. We should know shortly if any of the Facebook crowd will be joining us. This Friday in San Francisco at The Stud-- 399 9'th Street, which is walking distance from the ZNGA Brain Trust. Free rides on the bucking mechanical bronco. Free booze for all with losses in these junk stocks, which is most of you. Yahoo! Ride Em Cowboy!
    There's a possible surprise appearance by Mark Pincus himself.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We have zero diversification, and have bet the entire farm on Boy Zuckie. Will he have to forget about UC Berkeley tomorrow and focus instead on Heald Business College? I need some serious advice from the pros on this message board, preferably within the next 42 minutes. Thanks so much.

    Profits won't be long term

    Better yet, why not obsess on a most fascinating game like backgammon, or for the more adventuresome, go or chess? Backgammon should be of particular interest to stock traders because it hones your skills in numeric probability, indispensable knowledge for a stock trader. Don't forget poker as well. I consider the tainted hedge fund manager Stevie Cohen a highly questionable character, but he is said to be a master poker player. If you can't play poker, you ought not to speculate in ZNGA common stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
