  • Zinga - ZNGA - Barchart Chart Of The DAy 0 comments
    Feb 11, 2013 6:22 PM | about stocks: ZNGA

    The "Chart of the Day" is Zinga (NASDAQ:ZNGA). The stock appears on Barchart'sNew High list and has gained 30% since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 1/28. ZNGA is the world's largest social game developer with users playing their games which include CityVille, FarmVille, FrontierVille, Words With Friends, Mafia Wars, Zynga Poker, Cafe World, and Treasure Isle. Zynga Inc. games are available on a number of global platforms including Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo, the iPad, the iPhone and Android devices.

    Although the company has yet to show a profit, analysts think that a revised business plan of terminating some under performing games and a revenue stream less dependent on Facebook may bear fruit in a few years. They predict investors could see a total annual rate of return in the 25% range over the next 5 years if conditions are right.
