    ZNGA longs should have been sniffing GLUU.

    I am actually a cynical optimist. I suggest we allow the ZNGA numbers--real, not cooked numbers--speak for themselves. That's within two weeks. I would be seriously surprised if Mattrick, a console guy, is around next year. I pity his tenuous position, but not his pay.

    I'm going to slip on my Birkenstocks and my finest tie dyed hemp shirt, strap the surfboard to the roof of my 1968 VW bus, pack a little smokeable reality and a case of cheap beer for the journey, and pay a little visit to that self-enlightened hamlet of Bolinas. I must first seek audience with John Osterweis up on Horseshoe Hill Road (the Hamptons of the West Coast) and ask his opinion on the neighbor. More than likely, he will reply, "No comment." Then I will knock on the door of the emperor himself. "Mark, do we have a bona fide Kosher Nostra sell signal in progress on ZNGA common stock, and what is the exact nature of you relationship with the new CEO., Dr.Don Mattrick, the $58 million dollar fall guy?"
    Don't worry, all the greasy tidbits will be posted here.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Not the posterior orifice of a rabid bulldog.
    Here's the essential problem with last week's rise in ZNGA common.
    Unlike GLUU, ZNGA had no volume confirmation
    Which is the critical component missing.
    Subdued volume on a 10% move hints at price manipulation.
    Relatively small amounts of capital can push and shove a penny stock.
    And ZNGA is ultimately a penny stock worth its cash and physical assets.
    I don't know about its so-called intellectual property.
    Which has yet to earn the company a dime of actual profits.
    And what is the precise cash position as of this date?
    We had yet another drunken spending spree while ZNGA was bleeding.
    If you can't create anything worthy in house with two thousand employees,
    Just go shopping at the mall.
    I suspect ZNGA's cost of operations are way out of line.
    It's that old fashioned concept of overhead.
    Meanwhile, we have a blow off top in the averages.
    And ZNGA can't participate.

    Summary: A Kosher Nostra sell signal on ZNGA is pending.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I have seldom seen so many loose wing nuts confined to a single asylum.
    It's like One Flew Over the SPY Nest.
    I don't understand all the pent up sexual frustration here, but maybe one of you could shed some light.
    Meanwhile boys, keep up the good work at Comedy Central.
    You could just short the SPY, turn the computer off, and come back in November a much richer man.
    Here's the problem. There's no entertainment value in that strategy.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Even with free cocktails, a comped room, and a hot prostitute.
    I'm just wondering if there is a legitimate investor among you.
    Or just all riverboat gamblers living on a prayer,
    And the next roll of the dice.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Let us talk about simple math.
    I said math, not creative accounting.
    GAAP, not non-GAAP.
    Companies have been known to book future revenue as current.
    And ZNGA hasn't exactly established a record of ethics and integrity.
    Not when the insiders dumped $600 million of stock at $13-.
    Revenue - cost of operations = profit
    How many employees (idlers) at the ZNGA Brain Trust?
    Average cost per idler with all perks included?
    Active ZNGA users are in a virtual free fall.
    The folks foolish enough to fork out their credit cards.
    Farmville is now a dated symbol of human idiocy.
    The crowd is bored with it, and seeks a new drug.

    Summary: We have a negative integer on our hands, but how negative?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This spells bad news for Uncle ZNGA, whose financial dynamics are quite similar.
    Tell me ZNGA longs. How bad will the posted losses be in just a few days?
    And that's with highly creative accounting.
    There ain't no beef in this bull dog.
    Not since the scam IPO.
    Not an ounce of profit.
    Some Filipinos like to eat bull dogs.
    Generally barbecued.
    The nation, like this board, is a protein scarce area.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • If you wish to examine a healthy chart, take a look at GLUU, and take careful note of the huge burst in volume. The only hope for ZNGA's pathetic state of affairs is a buyout, but at just short of 17 million shares last Friday, and well below the average daily, it would be difficult to argue that ZNGA is under accumulation. More than likely, it is one more case of pump and dump, the machinations of the Kosher Nostra. ZNGA has also moved in sympathy to the big move in GLUU. Keep and mind that ZNGA has one more in a long string of disastrous lack of earnings reports pending, so something gives one way or another. Who in their right mind pays a premium for a failed revenue model, a bloated bureaucracy, and a rather stale menu of games? ZNGA could dump 1000 employees, which must be done anyway, and no one would know the difference, at least not the users. Don't lose all hope ZNGA longs. Perhaps the company will eventually be delisted, and you can pick up the common for pennies per share. Imagine, it could be CRMB revisited. Thursday morning you could have picked up CRMB for a couple pennies per share. It closed at 64 cents on Friday, a modest return approaching 2000%. Hope in cupcakes does spring eternal. Now cue up that classic Rolling Stones album, Sticky Fingers.

    We should immediately ban dual citizenship for anyone who wants to remain in our great nation, which is currently burning. If you like Tel Aviv so much, go move there, but you can't stay here and demand welfare payments for the apartheid state of Israel. That last phrase was used by Jimmy Carter, and while he was a naive and ineffective president, he is the best ex-president who is currently alive, and he tells it like it is. I know where my allegiance is. Where's yours? "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
    By the way, what does a high school have to do with any of this?
    Make that 40 - Love in our tennis match, my advantage of course.

    More food for thought from Benjamin Netanyahu:

    "We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and the American struggle in Iraq. These events swung American opinion in our favor."

    Summary: Is it any great wonder that conspiracy theories abound, whether they have credence or not?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • "I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction."

    America is moved very easily because Netanyahu's people are at the very centers of power in our nation.
    The Federal Reserve, the Supreme Court, the money center banks, mass media, Hollywood, Wall Street,
    the teachers unions, Congress, the commodity exchanges, ....and on and on and on.
    Why do we allow 2% of the population to dictate our economy and our foreign policy?
    Why did we allow the Jewish neocons (Wolfowitz/Perle) and AIPAC to get us involved in Iraq?
    It has been an unmitigated disaster pushed by Israel.
    Why are we sending Israel, a wealthy nation, more than $3 billion each year?
    Divide and conquer is the policy of the Zionists.
    With an Iranian war the ultimate goal.
    Shame on us. What would Thomas Jefferson think?
    You can now return to your Farmville country escape.
    Fools.

    "Now I have become death, the destroyer of worlds." Bhagavad Gita

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Who is the current head of the Federal Reserve? Name her two predecessors.
    Can you establish a pattern?
    Tribal membership has its privileges.
    Meanwhile, our citizenry is entertained by drugs like Farmville, Version 2.
    Watch out. Something gives this year.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The Zionists seem to have the upper hand.

  • I also have the current tide chart for the Golden Gate Bridge. I'm just letting all the frat boys on the ZNGA board know that I'm not taking any more of your abuse. Are these the best of times or the worst of times?
    Don't push me too far in this Farmville wonderland. You will miss me when I am gone, precisely when ZNGA is trading at $1.99.

    Why censor me?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It's not my fault that humans often exhibit irrational tendencies, toss good money after bad at scam stocks, and lay waste to the best of my grand schemes. In summary, the news from Vulture Capital wasn't good. While I wasn't fired from my menial position as a hack financial writer, they did reduce my per word fee from 29 cents to 7 cents, and that is sure to put a damper on the lifestyle I have become accustomed to. Vulture Capital also refuses to pay off any further bar tabs. I do have a pending job offer from some boiler room in Shanghai. The thing is, if I took this other position, I know I would be sorely missed on the ZNGA message board. On the other hand, I just finished reading the Kama Sutra, and China seems the ideal location to work on the various positions. I'm open to suggestions from the esteemed members of this board. Fortunately, I've been long Crumb Cupcakes, so I will be able to pay this month's rent, which is already well past due.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I don't see it. We might mange 17 million shares by the close, but way below average daily.
    I'm sorry to depart early today.
    I'm off to the Chelsea drugstore,
    To get my prescription filled.

    Was it naive of me to arrive at this board seeking acceptance and life affirmation?
    Selling resumes tomorrow.

    I takes a village to make a buffoon. I was raised in Zamboanga.
    Give me some heavy ZNGA volume, and I'll reevaluate my position.

    Music lover, frustrated guitar player, world traveler, vagabond, drifter, and ex-convict. Sometimes teacher. A product of Wall Street 1%'ers (they still clip coupons), whose lifestyle I detest. Of course, they wrote me out of the family trust, so I might have a slight resentment. I suppose they didn't approve of my personal habits. They know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Still, it would be nice to be an elderly trust fund baby. I like the way money lubricates one's freedom of movement; otherwise it is worthless.

  • Sorry, I'm not buying it. If there's no volume confirmation, it ain't real.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
