  • I think not, and don't forget the Russian people have an enormous propensity through their long history of accepting and living with pain, something our self-entitled society will never do. Putin doesn't want to play ball by the normal rules established by the West, rules made the movers and shakers in New York, London, and Tel Aviv. He and the Chinese are a long term threat to the sustainability of the petro dollar, which our economy lives or dies by. The idea is to nip this threat in the bud, and there is a consorted attempt to crash the ruble and have Putin ousted. Also recall that Putin had the corrupt Zionist oligarchs who were stealing the nation's substantial oil and mineral resources, exiled from Russia. This also plays into the equation, but you will read none of this in our media. It is the height of stupidity to wake up the Russian bear. It destabilizes the world stage and keep in mind that Putin is a better chess player than our own leaders. If Putin is pushed into a corner, he will react. You best hope this remains a currency war.

    If it keeps on rainin', levees goin' to break,
    When the levee breaks I'll have no place to stay.
    Goin' down....Goin' down....Goin' down
    Oh well.

    Lead Zeppelin is universally shunned by serious music critics for their rather liberal borrowing (stealing) of the music of others without due credit given. Much of Lead Zeppelin is also unlistenable, but their are many gems. Cue up "When the Levee Breaks" because it will become the ZNGA theme song. Remember, we will see $2.35 this month, but the major leg down in the ongoing ZNGA death spiral comes this January. The all time low of $2.09 will be erased, and we then break the magic $2- mark.
    Now try "Going to California." The best Lead Zeppelin music has a heavy acoustic bias. Jimmy Page is Lead Zeppelin. Bonham, for all his accolades, is too heavy on the sticks.

    I've gone mobile for the moment in the old hippy bus. I'll check the mail later this week. Despite the poor weather, I'm a free man in Paris. With this rain, the rafting season next spring is beginning to look quite promising. I'd like to get the hell out of this country for a stint (the island girls in Palawan beckon), but I was recently diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on my right arm, which can be fairly serious, but not nearly as bad as melanoma. It is more dangerous than basel cell carcinoma. I have more cutting scheduled for January with the surgeon. It is likely from too much sun when I played Huckleberry Finn as a youth. Or was it all because I refuse to talk pretty to this rabid bulldog, ZNGA? Whatever the outcome, I have few regrets. Carpe Diem Baby!
    Remember what the Lord said, "First love one another." Cut the ad hominem attacks on pinkboned,or anyone else except Mark Pincus. I enjoy the presence of pinkboned, a little extra dimension beyond all my gloom and doom, which no doubt becomes wearisome. This market is in big trouble.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I will love ZNGA even more at $1.99-.
    We have a close at the low of the day on a burst through the desultory volume of late.
    Technically speaking, this is a very bleak picture.
    Like Randy Bachman sang so very long ago....
    You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We will likely sell off into the close.
    No matter, the primary trend remains down.
    Down big time over the next six to eight weeks.
    Junk bonds start the fire.
    Don't ignore them.
    Even with no position.
    ZNGA is high susceptible to the coming decline.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Mike: The temple of Zion must fall, and I shall shortly shake the pillars of the ZNGA Brain Trust with a massive tremor. Initially, I will bring this hype stock to the level of $2.35 before December has run its course, but I have saved the major blood letting for January of 2015. Remember, 8 is a very auspicious number for the Chinese, and 5+1+2=8. This virtual pestilence must be completely purged from the kingdom and my flock shall return to the reading of quality literature and music with harmony, melody, creative lyrics, and real instruments. I'm glad to see you are following in the footsteps of Lloyd Blankfein. Yes Mike, you are doing God's work, though you are a simple goye hack. Not to worry, the first shall be last, and the last shall be first, which means $1.99 ZNGA is coming soon. I have saved a special place in Dante's Inferno for Mark Pincus. His resting place shall be two tiers lower than the one reserved for all lawyers, especially the one who handled your wife's interests in that messy divorce. I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will never die. I'll keep in touch. Short more ZNGA now.
    Yours, Yahweh

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • While ZNGA volume is imploding, volume in these two ETF's is rising dramatically with more selling than buying, and the FED pump (all of 60 minutes in duration) has completely reversed, falling flat on its face. There will come a time when the Federal Reserve is powerless to prop equities. It comes much sooner than you think. We are in crash territory. The ZNGA longs will regret the day they were issued forth from their mothers' womb. Would they ever shut the markets down for a cooling off period. Yes they would, but that only makes a bad situation worse. Short at will the major indexes.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Anyone interested in my 1968 VW bus? The number three cylinder is dead with zero compression, but it is otherwise a quality vehicle. You can live in it so long as you don't drive much. A true classic for those who wish to reminisce on the Summer of Love and those drug induced sexual escapades from days of yore. Comes with clean sheets for the fold out bed. Best Offer. No trade for ZNGA shares. Cash only.

    In other news of the day, you should be carefully watching HYG as a key market indicator. It will tell you pretty much what you need to know. We now live in a time of information overload, so it is wisest to narrow your focus, and thus not be confused by all the rattle and hum.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It had legs for all of 60 minutes, and this is a big warning sign. I'll tell you who is selling-- Goldman Sachs for one. Retail has been trained to buy every dip, and while it worked for remarkably well for the last five years, it is a huge mistake at this time. These individual investors will be Zngboozled, the last ones to attempt the exit door in a stampede. We are in territory where market risk is off the charts, and we might get through December without big problems. You are living on a prayer, not a bad idea in of itself, but maybe you are praying for the wrong thing. Garbage stocks like ZNGA will be vaporized. Quality companies will be scarred as well. Short this market at will and with leverage. The big fireworks most likely come in January. ZNGA is but a minor footnote to greed, fraud, and human stupidity. It is highly symbolic of what ails the markets as a whole, a touchstone of sorts. That primarily explains why it holds interest to me.

    Your timing must be damn near impeccable for the VIX or FAZ. FAZ in particular has resetting properties and time erosion similar to options. You can guess the proper long term direction and still lose everything if there is much to and fro action (backfilling), which is the most common behavior of charts. Neither are investing, but perhaps intelligent gambling, so you must play with money you are willing to lose, hence, only designated high risk capital. A more conservative approach is to just short the SPY with a bit of margin leverage. This market is headed down big time come January, and we may not even escape the month of December.

  • My favorite: KBH
    Junk look alike tract housing.
    Housing for Zngafiles, meaning sheep.
    Tons of debt on their books.
    Deflation is the theme again.
    They won't be able to service that debt.
    Deflation will ravage this stock.
    The housing top, again engineered by the Federal Reserve,is already in place.
    A house is a place to live. It is a very poor investment. Very poor liquidity.
    There might be a case for rental stock once the market corrects down 30%.
    But interest rates might be up substantially by then.

    1. Short the broad indexes (SPY).
    2. Short junk bond funds via ETF's, the best being HYG.
    3. Dabble in physical silver, 20% of portfolio max.
    4. Remain short ZNGA common and ride any roadkill bounces untroubled.
    If you have designated high risk gambling capital:
    A) Long FAZ
    B) Long VIX
    C) Purchase January/February puts on SPY.
    D) Short term speculation in SLV via long positions with leverage.
    Strategies A, B, C, and D are probably best executed near the end of the current December.

  • However, it will prove to have no legs. Unless you are a day trader, this is not the time to be buying the dips, and for long term holders of stocks, this will prove a disastrous strategy. By the way, I have yet to meet a day trader who met with consistent success measured over any considerable period. Most are excellent candidates for Gamblers Anonymous, the most applicable language of that program (just like the alcoholic) being, "Their lives had become unmanageable." The essential problem is that almost no one can be an accurate market timer over the long haul. The next ZNGA roadkill bounce will also have no legs.
    The Three Pertinent Ideas:
    A) That we were mad delusional speculators and could not manage our own lives.
    B) That no human power could relieve us of our tendency to toss good money at scam social byte stocks.
    C) That God could and would if He were sought.

    Summary: Praise the Lord and run from this temple of Zionist infidels and money changers.
    Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We can expect the Federal Reserve to furiously pump the indexes. The huge question is if it works for more than a few hours. Oil is definitely poised for a healthy roadkill bounce, but if it fails to materialize, that is a net negative. Deflation is the central theme, and longer term, it will devastate junk bonds and stocks. I find it surprising that the market is moving south in December, typically a boring month for stock trading with a slight upward bias. I expected this action to begin in January. This only demonstrates that we live in unprecedented times in terms of systemic market risk. As the ponzi scheme engineered by our central bank unravels, I can only guarantee there will be terrific excitement. ZNGA is more susceptible than the average stock to the coming carnage because it floats on hype and zero earnings. There remains a cool $1 billion in downside market cap risk in this junk stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Now cue up Stevie Ray Vaughan--"The Sky Is Crying," a most appropriate song.
    Next cue up his version of "Little Wing."
    Actually better than the Jimi Hendrix original.
    Stevie uses bit of Wes Montgomery jazz infusion.
    Finally, don't board any helicopter unless you will be dumping loads of money on the stock market next week.
    As the Federal Reserve will attempt to do.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Summary: You cannot discern accurately any clear trend from today's price action in ZNGA common. The options pits simply want this to end the day very close, or better yet at precisely at $2.50, and collect premiums from both the puts and calls. A pox on this house of fraud!

    There is a clear price trend in the broad averages, and it is down.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Mike: I have instructed Yahoo Finance to place you immediately on a level 10 troll alert, and we may remove all of your former posts. We have received of late a litany of complaints from the ZNGA Brain Trust over your constant ranting and raving, and they miraculously believe your Shakespearean prose is keeping this dog in the basement. Don't you have anything better to do with your empty life than incessantly deride this inconsequential and pathetic company? I know you earn a few pennies from the hack work, but why don't you consider becoming my personal assistant? You might then be able to afford top shelf instead of that gut rot you imbibe at that disgusting dive joint in the Tenderloin. There might be additional perks, if you get my drift. I warning you Mike. You are on a very short leash.
    Love and Kisses,
    Marissa Hot Finn Meyer

    PS: Who the hell is this cat, Vulture Capital Management? At least you are somewhat entertaining. That guy is a complete bore.

    Don't be so naive as to believe what the financial media, and certainly not our government, feed you in terms of supposed news. Did these same outlets issue stern warnings of the sub prime fiasco? No, they did not. There will certainly be winners and losers as the price of oil declines. I am only interested in the net overall effect, which is strongly deflationary. Deflation will spread to the price of high yield bonds first, and then equities. Short the averages at will and rid yourself of hype stocks with zero earnings, which most certainly includes the dog ZNGA. You must differentiate between what is actual news and what is propaganda.

    I am still awaiting shipment of the 24k gold plated iphone which you previously promised me. I'm sure I could figure out how to use it in several months. I need it now after recently dropping my vintage Samsung flip phone in the men's urinal at the 21 Club. Yes, I became overly excited over shorting additional ZNGA shares.
