  • The incessant drive for yield has thus encouraged massive speculation in all kinds of junk--junk stocks (ZNGA, TWTR, AMZN) and junk bonds, now euphemistically referred to in the trade as "high yield bonds."
    The sub-prime crisis of 2008 has transferred directly to gambling on junk, and we have the Federal Reserve to thank for this coming train wreck.

    Summary: When this market cracks, you will not be able to sell this junk fast enough. Liquidity will fade and he price adjustments will be enormous, well beyond the decline in the major averages as a whole. The blood will flow thick in the streets. Meanwhile, await ZNGA profitability in 2015. Or is it 2016 or 2017? Fool's gold.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Now that's one fascinating game, and it teaches much about mathematical probability, an indispensable skill for stock traders, modern and gray haired alike. I do have this slight problem with my six year old Samsung flip phone. I can't play Farmville, Version 2 on it. I have also never sent or received a text message in my life. I still do important writing on a 1957 Smith Corona typewriter. Yes, I am a dinosaur, and quite happily so.

    True, but this is all about the unfolding of Karma Yoga, so there are philosophical aspects to this trade. It is the hand of God at work.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is not any great wonder that some players are now fighting tooth and nail to be excluded from that infamy. It's not the kind of advertising you want, and thus we get the temporary bounce off of $2.70. This is all highly reminiscent of a few weeks back when there was a fervent battle to prevent ZNGA from falling below critical technical and psychological support at the magic figure of $3-. We know how that turned out. $2.70 won't hold either.

    ZNGA NFL?! What a joke

    You are exactly correct. That's why ZNGA postponed earnings to August 7. The contracts with Tiger Woods and the NFL likely had not been signed, and without this hype public relations ploy, we would be looking at $2.40 ZNGA right now. This is one more futile effort to buy time for this bleeding pig. It is doomed to failure. Karma Yoga baby!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The very best you can hope for is that ZNGA remains stable for the next six months, which means in the most ideal scenario, it is dead money., and ZNGA pays no dividend. Here's the big difficulty with the notion of price stability. Tops are now in place for all the major averages. The path of least resistance is down and down well beyond a normal 10% market correction. I anticipate panic selling at some point over the next three months. The laggards, companies unable to post profits, will be dumped in droves. We will see $1.99 ZNGA. Depending on the speed with which ZNGA is expending its cash base, it could be even worse.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • By the way, give me the actual cash position of this outfit, because I see numbers all over the map. ZNGA has spent like drunken sailors on acquisitions and they are currently bleeding to cover the daily cost of operations. This stock remains in big trouble.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Lead analyst, Patrick O'Leary, sited the following structural problems:
    1. Revenue is in a free fall.
    2. Active users are in a sharp decline.
    3. ZNGA is a non-profit organization.
    4. All of the so-called products are fads.
    5. The Kim Khardashian factor is missing.
    6. Why pay premium for freemium?
    7. Dr. Don's obscene compensation alone will bleed the company dry.
    8. The Kosher Nostra is dumping their shares, including Stevie Cohen.
    9. ZNGA could eliminate 1000 employees and no one would notice a change in output.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Call me when this rubbish is trading at $2.50. Meanwhile, paint some more lipstick on this pig.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I'll Tweet this in a few moments. I'm just letting you sell first.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This explains why his stroke has been errant with his putter in recent tournaments. His spokesman announced, "Tiger has been placed in quarantine at an undisclosed Florida facility. Mr. Woods is on a restricted diet, and he is slowly being weened off of his Grand Slam addiction. This is a personal issue not thought to effect his strategic alliance with the ZNGA Brain Trust.

    Let us pray for the recovery of both Tiger and ZNGA shares.

    Did you yet receive the Spandex low trim shorts I mailed you last week? Yes, the ones with embroidered hearts and cupid arrows. You should now prove quite popular at the gym.

    Are you prepared for a bloodbath in the world markets? It's coming. Your above idea makes much sense, but there must be buyer demand for those calls in order to make good money. Who in their right mind purchases ZNGA calls at this stage of the game except as a hedging strategy?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Lobster red all over the world as of this moment. Tokyo down 2%. Hang Seng down also. FTSE and the DAX looking like they want to sell big time. Putin is rattling his saber, and I believe he will enter the Ukraine. That sends world markets down an immediate 10 to 20%. European banks are facing a crisis, similar to what we saw here in 2008. This entire scenario is starting to look biblical. You are nuts to be speculating in a penny stock like ZNGA at this time. The first trading day after the disastrous ZNGA lack of earnings report looks to be nasty, though we can definitely expect the Federal Reserve to be active overnight in our futures in a desperate attempt to prevent mass contagion. Systemic market risk, baby! For those not adverse to high risk and high reward, take a look at FAZ, but it is only for those with damn near impeccable market timing, which means very few. It is an excellent day trading vehicle for those with the necessary skills and a bit of luck. We are in for great excitement over the next 90 days. It will be very painful for most, but a few will become quite wealthy. We are looking at a 600 point down session on the DOW shortly. It could even occur tomorrow.

    Summary: ZNGA is high risk, no reward. This is a time to be short the market, and especially short garbage stocks.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I already addressed this topic some time ago.
    Let's get ready to rumble.

    Summary: Junk bonds and junk stocks like ZNGA are about to be vaporized. Is risk off or on?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I don't know the exact answer to that question but his pumping of the stock just before this disastrous lack of earnings report is highly suspicious. Read my text on the subject: Tribal Money Flow Patterns and Tsunami Wave Analysis

    Will ZNGA even exist in two years?

    Losses were up by a factor of how much from a year earlier, even with highly creative accounting?
    Current loss: $62.5 million
    Last year: $15.4 million
    That's a four fold increase, and revenue is in a free fall.
    Profit = revenue minus cost of operations.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Definitely not in its current form. Management and a bloated work force will bleed this company dry from the inside. Obscenity charges should be filed against the board and Don Mattrick. Why the hell are the shareholders paying Dr. Don $1.3 million per week in compensation. Outrageous!

    Other notes: The ZNGA message board cheerleading ratio, a key technical indicator, burst skyward in the after hours entering territory we have not seen since the Facebook IPO. A contrarian like myself loves to see that kind of delusional sentiment. Dump this rubbish.

    Dear ZNGA Frat Boys,
    Vulture Capital Management, a diversified hedge fund specializing in scam stocks, has a short term price target of $1.99 on this garbage. Let's see where this virtual stock trades when we shave 5000 DOW points from the average. Watch for market nervousness tomorrow. Right now the pro traders do not want to hold long positions over the weekend. I say tomorrow is a down day with high probability. This Comedy of Errors--ZNGA-- will be hammered worse tomorrow if we have a sell off. My prediction: Putin will eventually enter the Ukraine.

  • What precisely are we going to do about it? Will we bomb Moscow? I rather think not. Putin is wearing britches quite a bit bigger than Saddam Hussein or Momar Ghadaffi, both two bit dictators. Putin is not easily intimidated by our naval ships in his Black Sea. Sure, we'll crank further on the economic sanctions, seize a few bank accounts in London and New York, and arm the Ukrainian resistance. Remember, the Russian population at large has a huge historical capacity for pain and suffering, unheard of in the common ghettos of Philadelphia, Newark, or Oakland among the welfare recipients, where there would (will) be riots and looting when faced with a serious economic decline. In the event Russia experiences a bit of social unrest at home, Putin stamps it out immediately with bullets--shoot to kill. Then he just plays the waiting game until Germany is cold and on its knees. We are in no position to answer Putin militarily. To do so opens World War III with no winners. It's a zero sum game.

    Summary: Putin is in the driver's seat. He is a much better chess player than Obama. I predict he takes control of the Ukraine. It is best done before winter settles in.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    There are no even prime numbers with the sole exception of 2. I was only referring to 89. That's prime enough for me.
