  • It depends on your perspective. Those short the market and junk stocks like ZNGA are about to have a field day while the delusional longs take the full facial shot. Zngathustra has consistently warned that Armageddon approaches and now watch as the mad speculators drown as they attempt to recross the Rubicon. The problem is a simple one. Everyone can't sell simultaneously. Yes Dorothy, then liquidity problems rear their ugly head. There is a minimum of 4000 points worth of downside risk in the DOW. When derivitives run amok, the risk is unknown. We are in for great excitement. Short at will, junk bond funds (HYG) in particular.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • True, Greece is a two bit corrupt nation best known for olives, feta cheese, and goats. Tax evasion is a highly evolved art form there. However, a Greek default, widely ignored, has huge implications. It has been universally assumed that some last minute deal will be hammered out. It might not be the case and you can look to the Germans for intransigence. This is all about the establishment of precedent. Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Italy are all watching closely. The natives in all those economically troubled nations are increasingly restless. If Greece walks away from the Euro, who's next? You can expect big volatility in the coming week. When fear rules the day, junk stocks like ZNGA (zero earnings) will be liquidated. This is not the time to speculate in hype. Short the broad averages at will and with leverage. Biotech also looks frothy to the extreme. Social byte? Down, and down big time.

    Adagio for Strings--played at FDR's funeral.
    A very eerie beauty to that piece.
    Haunting.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yes, it must be getting hotter in the kitchen. Stress levels are apparently off the charts at the ZNGA Brain Trust. Rumor has it that he accounting department is in a full tilt frenzy as they struggle to make mounting losses magically appear as profits. The current CFO, Ira Rotbuch, is now enrolled in a course of alchemy at UC Berkeley. Blood will flow heavy on Townsend Street. Meanwhile, Don Mattrick is thought to be Tyee fishing from his yacht on the Straits of Vancouver. Would that we all could be so fortunate.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Social recluse, stock savant, supreme narcissist, and music snob, SFJLegend, is the guest editor for the current edition. The Wolf of Wall Street makes a number of pertinent points about the future of this hype company.
    1. Dullsville USA, ZNGA's most recent addition to a menu of ennui, has been a complete flop.
    2. Active users are in sharp decline.
    3. The cost of operations exceeds revenue by a wide margin.
    4. 500 to 700 pampered and highly compensated techies must still be axed.
    5. The current CEO and his tribal brothers should be in handcuffs. $600 million of stock sold near $13-.
    6. Computer gaming is known to cause permanent brain damage among the youth.
    7. Armageddon now approaches in the major averages. Expect huge bouts of selling.
    8. God doesn't like ZNGA. Do you really wish to argue with the Holy Father?
    9. The in house gourmet restaurant now has a permanent menu of refried beans and rice.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Wasn't Big Sur a better alternative than to make a vain and futile attempt to enlighten the ZNGA frat boys on this board? Declining volume continues to signal that the end is near for this hype company. When it gives, prepare for a deluge of selling of biblical proportions. The broad averages look highly susceptible as well, the critical difference being that rubbish stocks like ZNGA decline by a percentage factor of 3 times or more. Yes Dear, $1.99 ZNGA is very much in the cards. Perhaps worse. You will regret the day you were ever born. Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Not good.
    Market rout pending.
    Why worry about precise timing.
    Only know it's coming this calendar year.
    Junk stocks like ZNGA will be vaporized.
    Tech Bubble, Version 2

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • "Cruisin"
    Are the lyrics perhaps subliminal?
    There just so much I don't understand about the modern world.
    Yes, truth is stranger than fiction.
    Back to the task at hand.
    Short more ZNGA shares.
    $1.99 price target remains.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Short cockroaches will run out of topics

    A healthy and robust imagination will never run out of topics.
    It is the opposite problem. The plate is too full, and not enough time.
    Where are you lacking, other than stock trading prowess?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I'm a certified paranoid schizophrenic, so I never met a conspiracy theory I didn't like. However, this strikes me as the proverbial pump and dump. We shall see, because one day does not a trend make. The Kosher Nostra are supreme masters of this strategy, especially with thinly traded pink sheet stocks, which is all ZNGA is in the final analysis. Always know who is sitting at your poker table. Are they wearing dark sunglasses? The eyes never lie. In terms of a beautiful woman, the ideal trifecta is beautiful eyes, hands, and the nape of the neck. Everything else will then be gravy. You need not focus on cleavage or a ripe bum. They will already be there.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • What kind of man addresses himself in the 3'rd person? Why, one who is full of himself with overweening pride and ego. Be that as it may, this junk stock has a weighty task at hand, namely to break through the magic $3- barrier. It will make one more vain last gasp attempt, and then succumb like a spent working girl from a low end cat house, and then move in the direction of $2-. I will empathize with the suffering of the ZNGA sheep as I'm pedaling through Big Sur. However, I will have no internet access. That's the whole point of this little adventure--to leave all the wonders of technology behind. After 50, you quickly realize the hour glass is late in the autumnal day. Carpe Diem baby! It's a very short run. Don't waste time with garbage.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    And by the way, the volume is atrocious.
    Prepare to take it like a real man.
    No, not a Girlie Man.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Don't get all worked up in a frenzied lather of smegma because this doesn't last too long. I just finished a conference call with that stock savant from his office in New York--yes, Legend himself-- and we both are shorting additional blocks of this garbage stock. Who knows, we've probably been borrowing the shares of the blind, syphilitic sheep on this board. Sell before your hair falls out.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Not to worry. This boredom shall be resolved shortly, and to the downside. Watch out when classical supply and demand curves exert their influence on this junk stock. You shall come to understand what happens when a stock has horrible liquidity.

    Full Disclosure: I am well compensated (40 cents per word) to post incessant biased and negative ZNGA comments by Vulture Capital Management, the nation's most profitable short fund, headquartered in Minnewaukan, North Dakota.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is important to understand why Greece cannot be granted a sweetheart deal by the EU. It establishes precedent just like a Supreme Court decision. If Greece gets a free get out of jail card, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland (and soon teetering Italy) will all demand the same treatment. That's not economically or mathematically feasible. Wall Street assumes that there will be some resolution to the Greek issue. I believe on the other hand that this can of olives has been kicked down the road far too long. Yes, we have much excitement ahead. Would Greece ever run into Putin's open arms? That's one huge political consideration.

  • Yes, it goes back to my theory of systemic market risk. We are now in that territory. You don't want to own junk speculative stocks like ZNGA at this critical juncture.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You see, I am here only to save souls and brokerage accounts. God gave me this calling in life, and from the looks of this board, I have been an utter failure. Yes, the illusion by and large persists. I must therefore embark on a spiritual journey of sorts this Saturday morning. It is much akin to Jesus entering the desert for forty days and forty nights, as I pedal my vintage 1978 Motobecane bicycle from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. No doubt, the devil will tempt me during the journey with such absurdities as, "Mike, go long ZNGA common at $2.86, and the entire world shall be yours without an ounce of work." I will simply reply, "Be gone fiend, for I have the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord is my shepherd, and I shall not want ZNGA." The devil will not relent easily. "Mike, see those rich people playing golf on Pebble Beach? That could be you, instead of watching afar from the 17 Mile Drive." I will reply, "Satan, I despise golf as much as I abhor Farmville, Version 2." Thus sprach Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Hal and his byte buddies are trading with each other, nothing more, and they shave for pennies. Legitimate retail demand is missing from today's session. That speaks loudly.

  • The Snapchat CEO, Evan Spiegel, had the audacity to suggest that there are not enough advertising dollars floating around to support all these social internet stocks. Here are the dire implications for ZNGA. Its failed freemium business model increasingly relies on advertising revenue since less than 3% of all active players ever give their credit card numbers for upgrades. There are just not enough ZNGA addicts. Competition also ramps ever higher, and ZNGA's competition includes any type of leisure activity, not just other asinine computer games (growing by leaps and bounds), and that includes even activities as basic as planting a tomato garden or a bicycle ride in the park.

    Summary: ZNGA will post more losses as far as the eye can see. ZNGA still has more than 1500 pampered techies, and remains extremely bloated. Quite simply, the cost of operations exceeds revenue. How's that for a zero sum game?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It has been a winning strategy for more than five years. However, we are now on the cusp of a seismic shift in the markets. Yes dear, mass capitulation. Dogs will howl at the ZNGA Brain Trust, which by the way, is a canine friendly institution

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
