  • KING, EA, GlUU, ZNGA, FB, and so on.
    Take your pick. All down substantially.
    Do these companies really represent the New Age Economy?
    If so, our nation is in big trouble and it will be a very rude awakening.
    All are absolute wastes of time, best utilized by government workers in their cubicles.
    Or the extreme narcissists and the low IQ sheep.
    Funny how the ex-wife accused me of being full of myself.
    She may have had a valid point.
    I'll have another drink now and think about it.
    Alcohol lubricates my soul.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The sweet song of ZNGA broke down at $15-, and what a long strange trip it's been since the glory days. The odd thing is, quite contrary to the mad delusional bottom fishers on this message board who are angling for squaw fish and carp (garbage fish), the suffering is by no means over. It is best to stick to Rainbow Trout or German Browns, quality fish. You should anticipate $1.99 ZNGA in early 2015. It might even be worse.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It's no great surprise they are fighting to keep it above $2.50 this morning. Just wait patiently because $2.50 doesn't hold, and once breached, we quickly move to the early October low of $2.35. The bigger pain comes in January of 2015. Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You don't need no baggage (ZNGA common shares)
    You just get on board

    All you need is faith
    To hear the diesel humming
    You don't need no ticket
    You just thank the Lord

    Summary: This ain't no regular freight train coming our way. You can stand in front of it or get on board. You have a few very brief weeks to make some weighty decisions. Don't be fooled by the current relative calm in stocks because I can already hear that train whistle in the distance. Most will ignore it. However, deflationary forces are about to overtake our equity and bond markets. Shock and awe we will have.
    By the way, Curtis Mayfield is an idealist and musical genius in the very best sense. Give him a listen. He, unlike ZNGA, does not disappoint.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Apple trading is quite curious today, a sort of flash crash, but now well off the lows. I previously warned of the significant dangers of algos and computerized trading programs, which dominate NYSE and Nasdaq volume, and we will see a day when Hall wakes up with a major hangover after a heavy night of partying at the strip joint. He will simply sell with wild abandon, hence triggering sell programs of his fellow robots. Combine this with the nutty aunt locked in the attic--huge and unknown derivitive exposure in our markets--and things can and will unravel at a speed which will shock all but a cynic like myself. One might also argue that today's decline in Apple was triggered by a big commodity trader long oil who had to cover a margin call, which is plausible. This only illustrates that stocks with high degrees of liquidity, like Apple and Facebook, are highly susceptible when problems occur. When push comes to shove, you move what you can unload quickly, where you can get a half decent bid. Imagine if a major player attempted to unload a 75 million share block of ZNGA common where liquidity is quite limited. The blood would flow in a very substantial price correction. Such an event is coming, most likely in 2015. Unless a major player absorbs ZNGA, the company just fades away. The stock remains in big trouble.

    As long as the dollar maintains its status as the world's reserve currency via the pertro dollar, we sit pretty. However, the Chinese and the Russians have other ideas which they are enacting as we speak, and China will purchase energy from Russia outside of the US dollar. This gives some credence to conspiracy theories about the decline in oil, as Russia exports little more than cases of Vodka, and official US foreign policy is to drive Russia back to the Stone Ages. A true contrarian might dabble in oil futures at these prices, at least for a very healthy bounce. For anyone with a long term perspective, oil is buy, though we haven't yet seen the lows. I feel the same thing about gold and silver.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You should be considering why oil is in such a dramatic free fall, off 7.95% in today's session alone. True, it does improve consumer discretionary income, which ZNGA lives or dies by. That's obviously a plus. However, the huge decline in oil also points to big problems with manufacturing output, from China in particular. This means that despite trillions in money printing, euphemistically termed QE, deflation and economic stagnation remain persistent problems in major world economies. If deflationary forces gather steam in our stock market, the final holdout, the crash of 2008 will seem like a relative picnic. The Federal Reserve will risk all credibility in the next crash if they put the printing presses into overdrive once again, so they will more likely shoot blanks and issue lofty press releases to vainly attempt to calm nervous markets. This has huge implications for the high yield (junk) bond markets, because first and foremost, deflation is the great enemy of bonds not sufficiently backed by earnings to fund current debt service. Rotten debt will be obliterated. By the way, how are most of the fracking wells in North Dakota and Montana financed? It's with junk bonds of course, and $68- oil doesn't cover the costs of production, so watch for problems to occur in this sector first. For the political conspiracy theorists out there, you might believe the decline in oil is a consorted attempt, orchestrated by the United States and its oil producing allies, to drive Putin and the ruble out of business. There could be an element of truth to this but I still believe deflation remains the primary culprit. ZNGA is already completely irrelevant. With a heavy bout of deflation, it just fades away, a minor footnote to human idiocy.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Why the censorship?

  • The most recent ZNGA roadkill bounce, whose duration was measured in several days, began on November 6 and peaked on November 12. It was inspired purely on an opinion issued by Jefferies & Co. and had no fundamental basis. Like all the other numerous roadkill bounces, it proved to have no staying power, and from a peak of $2.81 on November 12, there has been a constant steady drift lower since then. You should be asking yourself who profited form the one week phony run from $2.35 to $2.81, a very healthy percentage return for the big boys. Study the one month volume and price chart carefully and take note of the curious timing of the volume spikes. Tax selling now clearly holds the upper hand on this garbage stock since 95% of all the players are under water, and many are down big time, meaning on the order of 40 to 50%. By and large, those who purchased at $8- and above exited long ago unless they fervently believe in the power of prayer. The big downward pressure on ZNGA common will occur in 2015 when we break below the all time low of $2.09. It will get ugly in one final mass capitulation especially when ZNGA posts more disastrous losses in late January. Even with lipstick, a pig is just a pig, even if you are in the kissing mood.

    Summary: You only profit from a ZNGA roadkill bounce if you sell too early. It is wise to ignore upgrades from two bit brokerage firms like Jefferies & Co. especially if upper level executives are swapping wives and partaking of Peruvian flake. They do not have the interests of small retail investors at heart. By the way, the quality of that powder was much better in the early 1980's. I know firsthand.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Barring some international event (not entirely remote), this market simply drifts aimlessly for the remainder of the year. It is suggested to dump your ZNGA common now, take the meager proceeds, and go stand in line at Best Buy with the other sheep for a Black Friday big screen television. It's a better use of time. While in line for several days, feel free to entertain yourself with Farmville, Version 2. It is your civic duty as a citizen of this great nation to consume.

    Summary: Excitement returns to the markets in January of 2015. It will not be the hoped for January effect, but rather a January defect. Keep a close eye on the high yield (junk) bond market. Trouble is brewing there and liquidity will dry up when everyone attempts to sell simultaneously. Patient ZNGA shorts will continue to be rewarded, as the primary tend of this garbage stock remains down. Ever consistent, ZNGA will post more losses at the end of January.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Why does God abhor ZNGA common stock?

    Again, I say unto you brothers and sisters, the hour is getting late. The demise of the ZNGA Brain Trust is already written in the stars. Do not be fooled by today's aimless price drift on horrid volume. Volume will indeed precede price on this garbage. This is merely the calm before the storm. Do not live to regret the day you were issued from your mother's loins, and scream in pain, "Woe is me and mine!"

    Thus spoke Zngathustra.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • It is because these machinations of the ZNGA Brain Trust, gluttonous idle pursuits, are the playground of Satan. The Holy Father wishes you to immediately flee this temple of infidels and Zionism, but he has granted man the option of free choice. The Lord does not want a flock of blind sheep, so prevalent on this message board, to follow Him. Hell no, you must make a conscious firm decision to pursue the path of righteousness and eternal salvation. All others will come to know fire and brimstone, as evinced by the ongoing ZNGA death spiral from$15- to $2- and pennies. Beware, the suffering is not yet over for those chasing delusion, and they will be turned into pillars of dog excrement.

    Summary: The Lord is my shepherd, and I shall not want ZNGA common stock. Come to Jesus now and enter the garden of Gethsemane. Run,and run fast.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Funny, I ain't feeling a Whole Lotta Love on this board, and I am only here in the service of my fellows, altruism in its finest form. ZNGA longs, drool on, because this rubbish breaks $1.99. It is but a question of time, and I am a very patient sort.
    Now cue up that classic Lead Zeppelin tune, Whole Lotta Love. Full volume please. Don't worry about the neighbors.

    In terms of the historical record, gold, and silver in particular, make for very interesting trades precisely at this moment. Both are universally despised in light of the severe flogging. Even the Zero Hedge paranoid schizophrenics, the Armageddon folks, are now running scared. A legitimate market contrarian would observe these sentiments, and might dabble in markets which are hated to such a degree. Here's the bottom line. Over many years, I have observed that if you purchased physical silver, which I prefer over gold, near the end of any calendar year and sold in mid February, it is a profitable trade with a very high degree of probability. I can't adequately explain why this occurs. I only know it does happen many more times than not. The critical question is how silver performs in a deflationary environment, because I believe deflation still holds the upper hand despite trillions in QE stimulus. Intuitively, you would think the precious metals must decline during a deflationary rout. However, the precious metals fared quite well in the Crash of 1929. Problems in the subprime bond market (high yield bonds) are coming, and this likely stimulates interest in silver. In any case, dump the dog ZNGA. It's skewered canine.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Bitter? I've been riding this garbage to the basement since $14.19, and even remained patient through the massive roadkill bounce from $2.09 back to $5.80. It is the longs who ought to be bitter as a result of the Great Train Robbery, and no doubt, many are. Billions were vaporized over this confidence game. My mission is also not entirely of a pecuniary nature. I must be reassured that Karma Yoga runs full circle. Yes, the hand of God is at work. We all reap that which we sow.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Of course, that 10% represents the chronic alcoholics, a subject near and dear to my heart. I developed over the decades an intimate acquaintance with John Barleycorn, and I fully grasp his most insidious nature. He promised the world to me, only to remove it thread by thread. Momentarily, I did bow down and worship him. The repeated episodes of crash and burn did become a bit difficult to bear. After many months of high voltage electro shock therapy, and the spiritual guidance of my psychiatrist and fellow stock speculator, Dr.JR Silverstein, I have been made whole again. Praise the Lord!
    You say, "What does any of this have to do with the scam stock ZNGA?" In short, everything.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • 1. The ZNGA Brain Trust spends many millions to create asinine rubbish like Farmville and the now defunct Mafia Wars.
    2. Target low IQ and dysfunctional members of the population who have a few jingling coins in their pockets, and offer these fixations free of charge.
    3. Get the users addicted to these modern drugs of conformity. Addiction is the critical component, just like cigarettes and booze. No addiction = no profits
    4. Flood the tiny screen with as many advertisements as possible.
    5. We are now at the key juncture, the bait and switch.
    6. Urge the users to enter their credit card numbers in order to upgrade to premium play and purchase virtual goods.

    Here's the pressing dilemma for ZNGA. The bait and switch is only successful with about 4% of all active users. The vast majority play for free and always will. That 4% does not represent sufficient revenue to cover the cost of operations. This is why ZNGA has never posted a profit since its sham IPO. The company will continue to bleed cash until there is no more. The overhead of 2000 button pushers is substantial. Freemium doesn't work over the long haul. ZNGA can't get enough full blown addicts.

    The Book of James says it is better to live by action.
    You will know them not by what they say, but what they do.
    Good actions foster more good actions.
    And bad begets bad.
    Mark Pincus and his tribal pals are case studies in this sense.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This last gasp of speculation and complacency ends badly at the onset of 2015. If today's action is any indication, ZNGA will be left behind in the virtual dust. We are up 150 DOW points and ZNGA remains flat. No legitimate investor is tossing good money at ZNGA common. There's simply a high degree of computer push and shove and the mad gamblers on this message board, all who operate on a prayer. By the way, I see nothing wrong with praying. Repeat after me, "Lord help the delusional ZNGA longs. Lead us from the valley of Canine."

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Hal will become quite active in about 10 minutes.
    Which way does he push the stock towards the close?
    I have no idea, and only focus on the primary trend, which is down.
    But here's another interesting question.
    Who's behind these computer programs?
    The likes of Stevie Cohen?
    A man with teflon credentials.
    One more question:
    Who went to prison over the 2008 fiasco?
    I can't name one.
    The next generation working stiffs get the bill.
    An absolute travesty.
    An unprecedented wealth transfer from common citizens
    Into the pockets of the 1%'ers.
    Shame on us.
    Thomas Jefferson rolls over in his grave.
    And Ben Franklin warned of the Zionist banking class.
    Read it.
