  • This has been one of the greatest slippery slopes to the basement, Enron notwithstanding, and it ain't over yet.
    This is the hand of Providence at work.
    You shall reap that which you so.
    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost
    And the Lord tossed the money changers from His holy temple.

    We have one of two things happening here.

    I am well compensated for this job as a common hack, and I have at all times been open and honest about my employment with Vulture Capital Management. In light of last week's nuclear bomb, my ZNGA predictions proved quite prescient, and Vulture went to the bank on this leg of the ZNGA death spiral. I have thus been granted a raise to 40 cents per word, and I can't wait to wine and dine China Girl and take her to that motel on the South Peninsula. Yes, the one with the rotating water bed and mirrors on the ceiling. We'll probably start with some erotic porn, perhaps of the d p variety. Things usually get a bit of of hand after that introduction. What is life but a set of interesting experiences, generally having very little to do with money or asinine pastimes like Farmville.

    No, I suspect Mr. Pincus rests comfortably numb. His was the largest take of the $600- million raped via the secondary offering. It would be curious to know who pays all the lawyer fees, and they will be mounting. Are shareholders on the line in any way, shape,or form to defend Pincus and the tribal insiders? Mattrick can walk way with absolute impunity, though with a damaged reputation. His only crime is ineptitude and greed, but not fraud. I'm old school in this sense. A man's reputation is worth more than money. Bank accounts are easily rebuilt. Reputations are not.

  • A complete Greek exit from the Euro, increasingly likely, is by no means priced into the European and American markets. While Greece is but a bit player in the economic backwaters of the world, the ouster has much wider implications, and Putin is smiling on the sidelines (for the moment). It will be fascinating, but potentially dangerous, to see how this mess unravels. It's pretty clear the Germans will refuse further funding. Let's get ready to rumble.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Billions have been vaporized over this garbage, a fraud really, and the warning signs were everywhere. It only demonstrates that the so-called pros are subject to fits of hallucination and prolonged erections. By the way, Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities has been pumping this hype for what seems an eternity, while the stock dug an ever deeper hole, and he's a supposed expert in social gaming stocks. Is there perhaps a tribal connection? This stock is a complete and utter embarrassment to anyone who claims exclusive membership to the Wall Street clan. Zngathustra, known more for his bouts of boozing more than stock picking prowess, has a better record. The ZNGA death spiral is not done yet, as there is more pain to come.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We have ZNGA listed as our Thursday Blue Plate Special.
    This could be the stock which makes you a superstar,
    Or conversely, sends you to the poorhouse (nuthouse?).
    The balls in your court Baby!
    Check out our level 10 Kosher Nostra sell signal on ZNGA.
    Word on the street is that a major hedge fund will be dumping ZNGA by tomorrow's close.
    It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.
    My kingdom for a rabid bulldog.
    The slings and arrows
    Of outrageous misfortune.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is becoming a gooey mess. It is suggested to run for the exit doors.
    Karma Yoga remains in force.
    It never hurt so good.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Pennsylvania authorities are attempting to monitor his current whereabouts via the GPS unit on his ankle bracelet, but the signal, last traced to somewhere in Wyoming, remains weak. He is thought to be on board a Greyhound bus headed to San Francisco. The rumor mills are grinding on Wall Street and many believe that as a major player in ZNGA common, he will demand a personal audience with Der Fuhrer, Mark Pincus. Will Legend push for Dr. Don's ouster, massive layoffs, Mark's exile to Tel Aviv, and the complete liquidation of the ZNGA Brain Trust? Carl Icahn is quoted as saying, "SFJLegend has more than a few odd personal habits, but when it comes to ZNGA common stock, he is a force to be contended with. I suspect he has nefarious plans for this company."
    Stay tuned to this developing story. It might be wise to dump all ZNGA shares immediately.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Will we break $2.09? Zngathustra says it is a rather likely event.
    ZNGA: The penny stock which keeps on taking.
    Unless you are a tribal insider or Dr. Don.
    Or one of the 2000 bodies enrolled in the Job Corps Program at the ZNGA Brain Trust.
    Recall those lofty days when ZNGA had a market cap greater than Alcoa.
    If that wasn't a danger sign, I don't know what is.
    It was laughable unless you owned the stock at those insane levels.
    Summary: There remains significant downside risk to this garbage stock, even at today's "bargain" price.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Any sweetheart deal for Athens is fraught with peril, and certainly not for the power of the Greek economy, which is pretty much summarized by goats, feta cheese, olives, and the rusty hulks of outdated ships. It is frequently overlooked that Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and next Italy are all under rather severe austerity measures. If Greece receives debt forgiveness, pretty much the only way out, then these other countries will insist on similar releases, and Germany, the stickler in this entire scenario, knows this all too well. A Greek default, in light of what I believe will be Germany's refusal to toss more money down a rat hole, looks increasingly plausible. Then things become very interesting. When Greece is declared fundamentally bankrupt, who runs to the rescue? The Russians and the Chinese? This isn't exactly acceptable to Washington. Toss in the Ukraine, and things become a bit complex and possibly dangerous. What does any of this have to do with our own markets and a junk stock like ZNGA? More than you might think.

    I appreciate your analysis and fine use of language, but if I follow your thread far enough, I liquidate the entire company and distribute the proceeds to shareholders of current record. Sell the company building while San Francisco real estate is red hot (SF properties are headed for a huge correction). See what you can get for Natural Motion, which will be less than the $400 million plus already blown. My point is that the current mode is not sustainable. The company stays open merely on the original IPO money, which has very distinct limits. Overhead is bleeding ZNGA dry. In terms of a takeover, I see very minimal premium because of the failed business model and the critical consideration that the barriers of entry to social gaming are slight at best.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is an intriguing question because something has to give, and sooner than later. Oh to be a fly on the wall at the ZNGA Brain Trust because there has been no doubt some very heated discourse, and Pincus is not a man known for politeness or tact. He can be ruthless in his approach. A contrarian says that if the above actions were to occur, the stock would rally. It ain't my kind of trade. It could just as easily further unnerve the desperate and delusional longs, and they run to the exit doors.

    You're getting better by the day. Practice and persistence never killed the cat.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • No, we are referring to the liturgical calendar. You can bet there are some major hangovers in New Orleans this morning after Fat Tuesday. Ouch! Though I abandoned the Catholic church and organized religion ages ago, my romantic side finds ritual yet appealing. So what am I to do with this rite of Lent between now and Easter Sunday, as I do have a practical streak in me? I must quit the boozing which has dogged me for decades. You cannot be a man of character with a bottle in one hand and a cigarette in the other. What, talk lofty ideas while your addiction is active? Hell no. Then you are a complete phony. When the fog lifts, I am a better trader, and more importantly, a better human being. I have some good friends who own a pony gambling den/ dive bar. They are of--imagine this--Irish lineage, and are quite knowledgeable of the Irish virus, which is rooted in plain genetics. They stop each year for Lent, and they are the real deal. I'll start with their first step, but obviously the key is to stay stopped, no small feat. My bar pals always go back to the old ways after Easter Sunday. I want the obsession removed permanently. Sorry to be off topic, but today's ZNGA action is a complete bore. The excitement will pick up again, and to the downside. By the way, if any of you suffer from the bottle or other assorted substances, you are my brother. There can be power derived from numbers in unity. In stocks and bigger things.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Why yes, it is, though only relatively few do so. First of all, you never obsess over any particular outcome, remaining calm and relaxed. You remain at a comfortable midpoint between the opposed emotions of fear and greed. The Hindus talk endlessly about this approach to living. Read a bit of Vivekenanda, a very fascinating man. Try the Chicago Address. He talks about the notion of non-attachment, and it is a very useful idea for stock trading. Wealth accumulation then is no longer your sole motivation. Money, greasing only freedom of movement, becomes a windfall in spite of yourself. The question then is what you do with your capital. Do you become immersed in materialism, a shopping mall mentality, or attempt to benefit the society at large? Thus spoke Zngathustra. Take this idealistic drivel and may it serve you well.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I predicted it was good for about 10 to 20 cents as the more impatient shorts, the short term traders, covered their positions, and that is about what we have seen. The more intelligent cynics (like myself) are not done watching this pig bleed drop by drop because we know the ZNGA death spiral will resume once again. This roadkill bounce has been strictly technical in nature, and intrinsic demand for ZNGA common shares is extremely weak. The best case scenario, and you can pray for that, is that this is dead money and the stock trades in a narrow price range. However, the more likely case is that selling pressure picks up steam once again and takes this garbage down to $1.99. Many are still shell shocked from last week's nuclear bomb, but there is more fallout to come. Karma Yoga Baby!

    It is often an interesting exercise to visit the archives of business journalism, and in light of the often cruel sword of historical context, see how things actually panned out. I thus refer you to the above Vanity Fair article published in June of 2011, well before ZNGA succumbed to the ongoing death spiral. It is easily found on your computer. The entire piece reeks of nauseating hubris. You may find it necessary to gag on a spoon.

    Summary: Pride (and greed) cometh before the fall.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Dear Shareholders: I have come under recent criticism for not increasing shareholder value here at the ZNGA Brain Trust. The rabid bulldog does continue to languish under my stewardship, but allow me to pose a few simple questions. Are you that naive to believe this company was designed to make investors wealthy? Quite the contrary. The IPO was constructed in a manner so that capital could be transferred from the sheep to the insiders. How else does one justify the sham secondary offering where more than $600 million was extracted into the hands of the tribe at prices near $13-? By the way, you will see $13- again only in a protracted wet dream. Let me also point out that I am a common Goye, a Gentile as the bible would say, and I was not privy to that Great Train Robbery. If you have questions about insider trading, please direct them to Der Fuhrer, Mark Pincus. My mission is to rape the company via an obscene compensation package which is best summarized as "Don wins, shareholders lose." My wife and I do have a lifestyle we have become accustomed to, and it requires substantial piles of liquid capital. Do you have any idea what hanger space runs at SFO? In closing, I ask that you folks just remain patient. ZNGA might post a profit by the year 2525. Consider for a moment the money you are saving on capital gains taxes.
    Yours,
    Dr. Don and His Traveling Medicine Show

  • It has always been about Karma Yoga, and it will continue to be so. You shall reap that which you sow. Believe it or not, you can trade stocks based on spiritual principals. Principle comes as a free gift.
