    Here's the great benefit of painful market corrections, though what we will witness will be something much more substantial than a mere 10% market decline.. When the speculative fervor is lopped off at its neck, capital then seeks out more effective and efficient uses, like plants, equipment, and practical research. This will not include asinine pursuits like Farmville, Version 2 or Daffy Duck, absurdly employing 2000 of the nation's best and brightest. ZNGA currently has a $2.23 billion market cap. Once upon a time, in the $15- days long ago, ZNGA had a value greater than Alcoa's market cap. Is this insanity or what? ZNGA is a poor and inefficient use of capital. In the coming environment, it will be eroded away by the coming waves and washed out to sea as the flotsam it has always been. ZNGA has never earned a profit since its sham IPO. It will post more losses at the end of January, even with New Age accounting.
    Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Be very careful what you hope for--$30- oil-- because you just might get it. I suspect there are more than a few derivitive contracts, likely measured in the trillions of dollars, which are on the wrong side of the price trend in oil. They will of necessity unwind, and possibly with consequential contagion. I would state further that it is unwise for world central banks and governments, foremostly our own, to push Vladimir Putin into a corner by driving both the ruble and oil into oblivion, as it makes for a very unstable international stage. There could actually be an inverse relationship between oil and the price of physical silver, counter intuitive though it be. If oil remains at these levels, and certainly if it moves toward $30-, the junk bonds (the primary means of capital) which finance the fracking wells in North Dakota and eastern Montana will go into default in short order. This is when silver will move up. It effects the entire high yield bond market. Physical silver is a prudent insurance policy. A 10 to 20% portfolio allocation makes sense to me. The main thing is to be short equities going into the end of this calendar year. A hard rain is going to fall. ZNGA will be turned into molten shards of glass. You can only expect the occasional roadkill bounces orchestrated by the Kosher Nostra, and they will be measured in the half life of a fruit fly.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This private bank, a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, and not answerable in much of any way to the citizenry of this once great nation, was quite active in the overnight futures markets. If the supposed domain of the Federal Reserve is interest rates and the money supply, why would they push and shove on stock futures? Their charter does not specifically allow them to do so. It is because their greatest fear, and Bernanke already stated this many times, is an unbridled deflationary downward spiral. The economy is now completely reliant on a trickle down wealth effect of stock ownership. Should stocks heavily decline, especially just before the Christmas season, the repercussions for the economy at large would be dire. Consumer demand drives 80% of our economy, and if the plebeians quit spending, especially on credit, the cogs of consumption simply quit turning and deflation rears its ugly head with devastating consequences. This can occur faster than many believe possible.

    Summary: The Federal Reserve is pushing on a string. Though they were successful yesterday, they won't be today. Europe now bleeds deep dark red. Markets have a tendency to take on a life of their own, outside of the influence of Janet Yellen and her cohorts. Expect further impotency from the Federal Reserve in January. They will be shooting blanks. Deflation will ravage junk and hype stocks like ZNGA. The ZNGA Brain Trust will be turned into burnt toast, and the shareholders become piles of dog excrement.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I just want to verify that this stock has absolutely horrible liquidity. What? I can only find a buyer after ZNGA immediately declines 20 cents. Remember, for every seller, there must be a willing buyer, and with ZNGA volume approaching all time lows, it is apparent there are very few willing to take a ride on this lead zeppelin.

    Full Disclosure: I am paid to write negative and slanted reviews of the ZNGA Brain Trust by an Irish/Norwegian criminal syndicate of white supremacists. I have been doing so since the days of yore when ZNGA was at the lofty heights of $14.19. It might be time for you to fully utilize the ignore feature. Hear no evil, see no evil--This might be the best policy.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • However, a downward deflationary spiral remains very much alive because of the subdued velocity of that money, and we have only forestalled the inevitable pain. The Federal Reserve merely purchased five years of time, a period in which the S&P 500 more than tripled. The trillions of funny money went straight to the stock market, not real economic productivity, and this feeding orgy is damn near over, running on fumes. The printing presses actually benefited primarily the criminal element who caused the Crash of 2008 in the first place and the 1%'ers. This has been the greatest wealth transfer, confiscation really, in the history of our nation. The class hierarchy, a small privileged class of wealthy elite and many more have nots, grows stronger by the day. Your average working stiff, key ZNGA demographics since wealthy people don't waste time on this rubbish, saw his standard of living decline during this period. Deflation is about to exert its power in the equity and high yield bond markets. Junk penny stock like ZNGA will be vaporized. How many legs does this dog have? He has five if you count the tail.

    Not to worry my son. I am here with you. I did have one too many puffs on the water pipe last night (one is too many, a thousand not enough), so I'm getting a late start this morning. The green herbal fog is only now beginning to lift, but it quickly becomes apparent that this garbage stock is going nowhere quickly, and the absolute drudgery, reflected in horrid volume, wears thin on me. An active mind must be stimulated, and I can't no satisfaction among this glum and pathetic lot. This might just be the day to go on another cougar hunting expedition at the local American Legion post, though the wind is gusting at 50 mph. However, I do love a good storm, and that's exactly what the delusional ZNGA longs should anticipate as we eventually move toward $1.99.

    By the way, today's rally was completely anticipated. You should ask yourself why the Federal Reserve was quite active in the futures market last night. Where in the Federal Reserve Act does it say they are allowed to pump stock futures? It is an act of desperation as they attempt to keep this ponzi scheme rolling, and it will fail miserably. I still believe the big decline comes next January. This dog of a stock can't even participate in a 200 point DOW rally, a rather ominous sign. Tomorrow's session should be rather interesting.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Just a minor observation: HYG is down today on more than double average daily volume. I thought bond funds were dull, boring,and extremely safe, perfect investments for widows and orphans. They won't be. They will face the same liquidity problems as ZNGA.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • iSharesiBoxx$ High Yield Corporate Bond Fund
    When we experience problems--outright defaults-- in the supposed safety of this sector, the broad indexes are headed for big trouble. It's coming. HYG is already significantly off its 52 week high (a huge move for a boring bond fund) , so there has already been stealth bleeding in the markets never reflected in the DOW or the S&P 500. I believe this is a key theme going forward. The public at large is clueless, just as Wall Street likes to keep them. ZNGA longs are clueless as well.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • That's 200 points on the S&P 500. Herein rests the problem. This will be no normal market correction, but something much bigger, a la 1987. It could even make the Crash of 2008 look like mere child's play. Take a look at the astronomical levels of margin debt, and if that doesn't give you pause for thought, I don't know what will. Now consider the $280 trillion of derivitive contracts floating between the five major money center banks. This is a disaster in the making.

    Summary: Deflation will now exert itself in the equity markets. Short the major averages at will. Even quality companies will be hammered. Junk stocks like ZNGA are toast. Short junk bond ETF's.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I am the very best paid basher on this board, and I have always been entirely open and honest about my position with Vulture Capital Management. I have also never written a post I didn't sincerely believe in. I am an idealist of the highest order, so truth is a thing of beauty to me. My very healthy Christmas bonus check is forthcoming, and I shall take China Girl to a love hotel with a mirror on the ceiling and a rotating water bed, very retro. It's like the words to that song. "You've got to get it while you can." You should spend less time obsessing on my hack work on this board and follow similar amorous pursuits. You will feel much better, even when ZNGA trades at $1.99.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Watch how we transition from greed to fear. It's coming. Guaranteed. Watch the dog ZNGA bleed drop by drop. Remember, the ZNGA insiders already sold more than $500 million of stock at $12- and above. Scandalous! Why rob a bank and risk prison? These scams are just much easier.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Never trust a firm whose executives snort Peruvian flake and attend swinger clubs, where the wives are shared. Better yet, scrutinize carefully buy recommendations from any firm. Remember how Goldman Sachs was pushing subprime garbage to its clients while they were short those very same instruments? Not a soul went to prison, an absolute travesty among the ranks of the vampire squid. How can it be that the major Wall Street firms issue buy recommendations so often, but rarely issue and outright sells? You do get the occasional "hold." This is easily explained, because these firms earn many millions from their underwriting activities. You best not bite the hands which feeds you. Word gets around quickly on Wall Street if an analyst comes down hard on any given stock. There is clearly a conflict of interest, but this is just the way things work. By the way, what is the most ideal promotion within the SEC? Why you get a job which pays three times more in the compliance division of Goldman Sachs. Does something smell funny here? Yes, it stinks.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • No, it will not. In fact, it will decline in percentage terms by a factor of three. The reasoning is simple. The company loses money day in and day out, which is clearly not sustainable. The company will post more losses in late January. Garbage stocks will be severely punished in the coming environment, social byte in particular. Don't fret over a 150 point DOW decline, because we have much bigger excitement ahead, a decline to be measured in the thousands of points. What will be the catalyst for such a sell off? It doesn't much matter, but I would be watching the high yield (junk) bond market very carefully. It reeks with complacency, as investors chase yield with little regard for the substantial risk to principal. Deflation remains a very powerful force, and it will destroy these bonds. By the way, oil is down another 4% today. When you close the doors at the ZNGA Brain Trust, please turn out the lights. Thanks.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is a pertinent question, and I do believe our nation should disallow all dual citizens.
    Make a choice. You cannot serve two masters, and Netanyahu is the fascist.
    Look at all the dual citizens who are at the centers of power in our economy.
    Shouldn't this all be a bit disturbing? Where rests their true allegiance?
    Now look at a list of the names of those who reaped millions from the fraudulent secondary offering.
    More than $500 million of ZNGA common was unloaded at $12 and above.
    Can you discover a common theme among the names?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Meanwhile, the ZNGA frat boys drool over this garbage stock.
    You should be watching the currency markets instead. That's where the real action is.
    Deflationary trends will send ZNGA to the dumpster.
    And all stocks with zero earnings and failed revenue models. Amazon anyone?
    Take a look at Tesla, a company I like and respect. Ouch!
    The Kosher Nostra can push and shove short term on ZNGA all they want, just as they are doing today.
    All the shorts require is patience, admittedly a rare quality in the casino.
    Just wait until some real human being tries to unload a 10 million share block of this rubbish.
    No, not Hal and his buddies, tools of the Zionists.
    Poof! Down in smoke.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Why can't you follow your own advice? You seem to be fixated on my incessant missives. Just put me on ignore.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Can the precious metals possibly diverge from the deflationary forces exerted on oil and industrial metals?
    Are gold and silver legitimate safe havens?
    They have been for thousands of years.
    The Federal Reserve can't print them.
    A house has limited liquidity in times of deflation.
    Silver maintains excellent liquidity.
    It can be sold in minutes,even in physical form.
    Gold up 2.5%.
    Silver up 3.6%.

    Summary: The precious metals might be a hedge against deflationary forces. Remember, deflation causes the liquidation of rotten debt and ravages junk stocks like ZNGA. In any case, the precious metals, silver in particular, make for a very interesting six week trade with possible 15% to 20% returns.

  • Yes Dorothy, it does smell like teen spirit from the House of Zion.
    Yes, we have a K Mart blue light special on aisle four.
    Load up while you can.
    Or is that offload?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • ZNGA's current dilemma is found in its extremely limited liquidity. The absolutely horrid volume of the last month suggests that there is very limited demand for these shares by hedge funds and retail investors. Mutual funds and diversified ETF's don't even go near this garbage, and often enough, SEC rules prevent them from speculating in pink sheet stocks. That's all ZNGA is in the final analysis--a mad and risky speculation whose only chance of bearing fruit is realized if someone is foolish enough to make a tender offer. Ain't going to happen, and again, anemic volume dictates this truth. Here's the uncomfortable question. What if a real human being, not Hal and his fellow robots who are responsible for 70% of ZNGA's volume, attempted to offload a 10 million share block of ZNGA common. In light of ZNGA's huge share float, 10 million shares is not that much, a mere $25 million in proceeds at current prices. However, ZNGA has extreme liquidity problems, and a 10 million share sell order would immediately cause a large downward price correction. Facebook has excellent liquidity for the moment. ZNGA does not, so watch out below.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I really didn't expect any serious selling until the onset of January, and the historical record indicates that December trading is pretty much a bore with a narrow upward bias. However, we live in strange and unprecedented times. Europe has already reentered recession and Russia, via world central banks and Zionist machinations, is being pushed off a cliff. Fortunately, the Russian people are accustomed to high degrees of suffering. We, a nation of entitlements from the filthy rich to the lazy poor, are not. Deflationary forces gather steam once again and world industrial production (and obviously oil) is in a tailspin. China and its phantom banking system remain the ultimate trump card. How do ZNGA's virtual realities, asinine pastimes for ignorant sheep, play out in this new paradigm? Quite simply, they don't. Garbage in, and garbage out. Are these the best or the worst of times?

    Summary: ZNGA longs, this shall be the winter of your discontent.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
