    Halliburton, Chevron, Exxon, the almighty Petro Dollar, and the Military Industrial Complex.
    Of course, Israel--- Netanyahu and the fascist Likud Party. AIPAC JDL
    The Christian Right.
    Bush/ Rumsfeld--all liars
    #$%$ Cheney and the Neocons, especially Richard Perle--more liars
    Colin Powell sold his soul to the devil.
    Our political system dictated by big money.
    Voter indifference and the two party system. Actually it's a one party system. $$
    I hold all these entities responsible for this mess.

    Things are now unraveling at exponential speed. We won't walk. We are in too deep.
    Imagine if you lost your young son or daughter in this ill advised venture.
    I don't remember the exact number of dead. Over 4000.
    Many thousands more missing limbs.
    How do we explain to parents what they died for?
    And I haven't even talked about the civilian carnage.
    Women, children, old people. 1 million?
    Shame on us.
    Thomas Jefferson would roll over in his grave.

  • At a lethargic 12 million shares with 50 minutes to go before the close, this hints at Monday selling.
    The world stage is also a complete unknown over the weekend.
    There's no way we will tolerate an outright attack on Baghdad.
    The insurgents are not far away from the city center at this very moment.
    We recently built a $700 million Taj Majal US Embassy in Baghdad.
    Just hand it over to the extremists? I doubt it, though that was the case in Saigon.
    With the DOW up 43 points, I sense huge levels of complacency against this backdrop.
    A defensive posture is highly recommended.
    A conservative play is to simply short the SPY.
    SPY volume is horrid as well.
    Things do not remain as they are.
    That is a certainty.
    A very interesting week of trading ahead.
    Full of drama and excitement.

    Dear Mr. Fantasy (excellent Traffic tune),
    True, I am quite familiar with many of the boy toy flesh houses of San Francisco.
    The lesbian scene as well.
    I installed sound in many of the establishments some years back.
    Ran sound in a few.
    Music is one of my interests.
    However, it is not in my genetic code to pursue the same sex.
    But I will drink their free beers.
    If you happen to be of that persuasion, I can only say,
    "Whatever gets you through the night."
    Many of the homosexuals are excellent conversationalists and highly educated.
    Intellectually and artistically inclined.
    I'll give some credit there.
    I hold no prejudice on those counts.

  • That's a compensation of $1.1 million per week, or $220,000 per work day.
    Let's put this absurd compensation package in proper perspective. $27,500- per hour.
    Dr. Don's daily remuneration would pay the annual salaries for four public school teachers.
    That's right, his eight hour shift equals the annual compensation of four teachers.
    I know a few things about that profession from my plebeians days as an English Lit./Comp. teacher.
    I was in the ghetto academic war zone, and I have seen fire. Up close and personal.
    But that's where gifted teachers are needed, or we can continue to build more prisons.
    True, it was a calling, not about getting rich, and I did my time as a missionary.
    Still, there is something very wrong with this picture.
    Dr. Don is only outdone by the supreme narcissist, Larry Ellison. The sailboat racer. The accumulator.
    The ZNGA shareholders apparently don't want to ask the uncomfortable questions.
    Forget about the board of directors. They are at the heart of the ponzi scheme.
    Through alchemy, Dr. Don will certainly transform ZNGA to a $7- stock. Guaranteed.
    But meanwhile, ZNGA continues to bleed dark red, not a centavo in earnings.
    And active users are dropping like dead flies from ZNGA's menu of ennui.
    This is rape and pillage of the shareholders. Plain and simple, this is a travesty.
    We have been down this road before. Recall the scam secondary offering.
    The shareholders expressed indifference to that crime as well. Baffling.
    Mr. Pinus and his tribal brothers were selling at $13 to the tune of $600 million.
    Knowing forward guidance was in shambles.
    While the rank and file were locked out from selling.
    It was one more uncomfortable question not asked.
    OK ZNGA shareholders.
    Bend over. Lube up. Insert projectile.
    Does it hurt so good?
    Just like that old John Mellencamp song.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Today's chart looks more or less the same.
    We likely turn red at the lose.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We are also under a full moon. ZNGA longs, this doesn't look good for you caviar wet dreams..
    Please push the sell button immediately. Do not attempt a limit order. Dump all shares at any price.
    We also have the holy trinity of civil wars occurring simultaneously.
    1. Ukraine
    2. Syria
    3. Iraq
    Who is the prime beneficiary of all this unrest? It is Iran, whose sphere of influence grows.
    While ours wanes. A US foreign policy chart is quite similar to the ZNGA death spiral.
    Meanwhile, Netanyahu and his fascist Likud Party suffer from wet panty syndrome.
    They are known war mongers, itching to destroy Iran.
    Netanyahu is not a bit happy about recent developments.
    He just prefers that the United States do the dirty work.
    As we always have licked the boot straps of Israel.

    Summary: Are you sure you want to hold the stock of a purveyor of asinine games over this long weekend? Something big gives, and much sooner than later. Farmville is but a minor footnote to human folly.
    Iraq is a major footnote to human idiocy, greed, and unbridled thirst for power. Oil Fields.
    We now have a region wide conflict on our hands with no simple solution.
    Strange bed mates indeed. The US and Iran.
    It's quite similar to Israel and Saudi Arabia.
    Both pushing for us to invade Syria.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I can't argue with ZNGA's volume today.

    The proof being a close near the high of the day.

  • We ought to break through 40 million shares.
    When you get a fish head, what the hell, make fish head soup.
    However, I have a sneaking suspicion that you best eat this soup fast.
    The proof is not in the fish head.
    It is in the eating of the fish head.
    You can help yourself.
    But don't take too much.
    Papa Pinus may have.

    The UBS opinion is fine and dandy, but ZNGA will not post a profit in 2014. It has yet to post an annual profit since the IPO. Meanwhile, fervent competition ramps ever higher within the field of social gaming since the barriers of entry to this business are so minimal, and ZNGA active users are in sharp decline. My primary concern in terms of the big picture is that the major averages are achieving all time highs while the volume continues to shrink, and dramatically shrink. That spells big problems ahead. Historically, one would not expect a substantial decline in the summer months, but history does not necessarily repeat itself ad nauseum. It only rhymes.

    By the way, name one stock UBS has an outright strong sell rating on. The investment houses seldom issue those type of ratings, and the reasoning is clear. Don't cut the hand which feeds you.

  • FB, TWTR, and ZNGA are all up. ZNGA volume is particularly strong out the gate.
    Here's the caveat:
    Both the DOW and the Nasdaq averages are down.
    Be careful in these waters.
    It might be one more case where you want to sell too soon.
    If ZNGA closes near the high of the day, this road kill bounce has legs.

    OK, let's try this logic. High tide under the Golden Gate Bridge occurred this morning precisely at 10:10 AM and it measured 3.8 feet.
    Now add 3+8+0+1+0+1
    The sum is 13. This is an evil omen for ZNGA. Dump all ZNGA shares immediately.
    Never trade in scam stocks without first consulting a tide chart.
    Always try to do your selling during a neap tide, not the flood.
    Trust me. I have been using this technique for 30 years with great success.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Retailers (and the Kosher Nostra) have understood this idea for centuries and that's why they will price an item at $2.99, and not $3.00. For some unknown reason the human mind considers $3.00 vastly more expensive than $2.99. Conversely, a shareholder feels much poorer at $2.99 compared to $3.00, and that is of great psychological significance to a ZNGA position. Who said people make rational choices?

    Summary: We again have ZNGA volume in the dumps after last week's drama spiel. SPY as well. ZNGA must hold $3.00 or we will most definitely revisit last weeks lows. The bounce from the $2.70's can be almost entirely attributed to short covering so where does future buying demand for the shares come from?
    ZNGA longs are now a completely demoralized group. Gun shy at this point. Why toss good money after bad?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The longs of course fully expected the shorts would be severely squeezed by their pelotas, because after all, ZNGA is a $8- stock at the very minimum. Alas, this did not come to pass. Quite the opposite. The ZNGA death spiral resumed after Dr. Don's pontification, and even I did not anticipated ZNGA's low in the $2.70's. The bottom line is that the shorts tend to be the more sophisticated players in this comedy of errors, otherwise known as ZNGA. There are any number of reasons to explain this. Shorts are skeptics by their very nature, rejecting hype and the standard Wall Street public relations. They always ask this most pertinent question, "Where's the beef?" ZNGA has no beef other than 2000 highly compensated employees. The shorts must also have access to a margin account, and not everyone is approved for that ability to borrow. If you don't have a margin account,you can't short a stock. Most importantly, the shorts tend to have a very firm grasp of downside risk since any short position is exposed to theoretically unlimited losses.

    Summary: The prime ZNGA shorting opportunities were when the ZNGA days to cover ratio was 1. That ratio did approach 4, but it was not a source of concern to me. I don't like to short any stock with a days to cover ratio nearing 6 or 7. There is a significant time lag on reporting short interest, so I don't know the current ratio. I suspect it is in the area of 2.7 days, since some covering has occurred, which primarily explains the bounce off of last week's lows. Remember, shorts must purchase the shares in the open market in order to cover. There remains plenty of downside risk to the stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • In 500 words, please describe in detail ZNGA's marketable products, their intrinsic worth, and why they are indispensable to a modern society. You must use paragraph development, a topic sentence, and proper subject verb agreement. Extra points are available to those able to able to make full use of poetic language and the utilization of dramatic adjectives and adverbs.

    Upon completion of your essay, please tune into Comedy Central for a brief video presentation.
    The winner of this essay contest will receive unlimited virtual hours on Farmville, Version 2, A Southeast Asian Country Escape--Philippine Flesh Muffins Gone Wild.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • My favorite yardstick is the SPY. Study a three month volume chart. It is none too reassuring, and the chart leads me to believe that the current nosebleed levels in the market are built on a foundation of sand. Consider the mass capitulation which occurred in ZNGA common last week. ZNGA had established a long string of lethargic volume days, and all it took was Dr. Don and his Medicine Show to cause a sudden burst in trading with a corresponding dramatic price correction. Something quite similar will occur with the major averages and at that time, the faith of the ZNGA longs will be severely tested. It is in the favor of the ZNGA longs that market crashes rarely occur during the summer months, but this is not to say it cannot happen in a world so closely interconnected. You can ponder endlessly on the possible catalysts for a major downturn and there are any number of plausible scenarios starting with interest rates and the dollar. No one can say with any certainty what will cause the Big Bang. You should only grasp that we are ripe for such an event. ZNGA will be a $1.99 stock at some point, or even lower depending on the levels of cash erosion, a major concern. The shares of companies with zero fundamentals will be dumped when the mierda hits the fan.
    When does Don announce additional layoffs at the ZNGA Brain Trust? They are coming.

    Take a look at the names of the beneficiaries of the secondary offering.
    They are by and large Zionistas.
    A pox on their house of fraud.
    A pox on the Jesuits as well.
    And I was educated by the latter.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Why on earth was ZNGA carrying a $3 billion plus premium over its cash asset value?
    It has never--not even once--posted an annual profit since the IPO.
    ZNGA was conceived from the bowels of greed and fraud.
    Who profited from this scam?
    Mark Pinus and his tribal brothers. God's Chosen People.
    More than $600 million was raped in the secondary offering.
    They were selling at $13- while the rank and file were locked out.
    It will be just like Stevie Cohen.
    No criminal prosecution.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Would over 100 million shares in today's session qualify?
    Now, let's discuss Mr. Pinus' complete departure from the company.
    This is a lawyer's dream come true.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I wanted decent public relations, and all I received was more drivel.
    Did Mark Pinus write the speech?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
