Zynga (ZNGA +4%) and Synacor (SYNC +1.9%) open higher after the companies strike a deal that gives Synacor's pay-TV industry customers the option to offer Zynga's games on their portal homepages, and to include Zynga virtual currency in their subscription bundles. Synacor's customer base includes Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and CenturyLink. Recent Facebook-related developments (I, II) make it easier for Zynga to expand its horizons, and arguably give it some motivation to do so.

    Just goes to show. All the people who ran when Zynga and Facebook changed their relationship were either not familiar with the relationship or blind to the possibilities it opened to Zynga and Facebook. There will be more news like this. Eventually this will be one of those stocks where people look back and see the opportunity missed NOT the dollars lost.
    BTW, another plus for Zynga is that the economy is getting worse. As that happens many will elect to play cheap Zynga games rather than go out for other entertainment or $50+ games from the likes of EA. Zynga, in effect will be the Dollar Store in the entertainment arena.
