Zynga (ZNGA +10%) closed up strongly in the wake of Mark Zuckerberg's TechCrunch Disrupt talk (I, II). Zuck gave Zynga a favorable mention during his talk, but also didn't cover any new ground, and admitted Zynga has lost Facebook gaming share. With Zynga shorts staring at giant profits, a short-covering rally may have been overdue. Earlier today, Zynga announced it would release two mobile role-playing games developed by its Japanese unit, Montopia and Ayakashi, to global audiences.
