Zynga (ZNGA +4.9%) and Groupon (GRPN +1.6%) continue their recent rallies, possibly aided by favorable Jim Cramer mentions (video) during last night's episode of Mad Money. Cramer likes the accolades new Zynga CEO Don Mattrick is receiving from tech/media titans. "[Reid] Hoffman and [Jeffrey] Katzenberg? Both praising this guy? If this were really the Titanic of gaming, believe me these guys wouldn't be making these terrific comments." Regarding Groupon, Cramer suggests (like Wunderlich and Deutsche) the company is transforming itself in the post-Andrew Mason era (much of the groundwork was arguably laid when Mason was around). Zynga is up 23% over the last 3 trading days. (yesterday)
