  • What Happened To Zynga? [View article]
    What rubbish you speak
    Zynga had sixty mill more than expected at results
    Farmille 2 Is hit with 64 million maus and 500.000 unique paying users
    The q3 were up three percent on same q3 last year
    Their up 17 percent on last year as a whole at this point
    They are doing a200 million dollar share buy back
    They are also cutting costs by staff reductions and subseting games that are no longer viable
    They will be on line gambling here in the uk from first half next year which will be very lucrative for them
    Wake up and smell the coffee my friend
    These shares are a steal at this price

  • Zynga's Forecast Suggests Further Weakness Ahead [View article]
    Such negativity been spread.
    Pity your article is a rehash of old facts and nothing new
    Zynga came from sixty million a year revs to be a billion dollar company in two years.
    That's some feat no matter the reasons behind it.
    Also it has one and a half billion cash in the bank and no loans to speak off so no issue with someone putting them into admin anytime soon.
    Also if you look at the metrics for farmville two you will see that it look like a hit and with the plans to do the same with city like ie 3d which mis now in beta being tested in the Philippines that is also looking positive.

    Then off course there is the fact pod things being set up for them to go in to online gambling which will bring huge revs.

    Also yesterday a story was reported that face re near completion of an android application which I'm sure will benefit zynga games and help their switch to mobile
    This company is cash rich so afford to make some errors and also their is the talk of takeover which would really give huge returns t o shareholders.
    Unfourtunately anyone can write anything on seeking alpha which can give the investor who is. To well researched wrong ideas.
    So I will bring a balance to your thoughts and would say zynga is a steal at this price

  • 4 Things To Watch Ahead Of Zynga's Earnings [View article]
    zynga has has support at 2.40for a couple of mths now.
    So unless the results are very poor I expect the same.
    Iii the results are decent the support level will rise.
    Facebook has already stated it has no intent to develop its own games .
    Also the agreenment between zynga and Facebook ends in march and zynga have their own platform.
    Zynga will start online gambling this quarter here in the uk and that's where there future money will come from.
    As to the decrease the share price for Facebook.
    This was not because of earnings but because they were downgraded.

  • Renren: An Excellent Long-Term Opportunity [View article]
    Mr bond ,Jason bond lol
    I agree with you fundamental analysis on renn
    I was in renn when the eu announced they were going with a begging bowl to china last November or so to shore up the Greece issue and the general finances of the eu.
    I made a grand in one session and felt like the cat with the cream.
    Although you are right on the technicals you miss the more issue of the climate for social networking in china.
    The fact you mention of fb being banned there is really the answer.
    The Chinese gov don't like desent of people expressing their true feelings on issues and defo don't like critique of the gov.
    They have already said they would take measures to curb the freedoms of renn if they don't,play ball and employ censorship.
    This is not a secure investment. Because of the political regime and you could lose all your investment in a swoop if the gov got peed of.

  • What Happened To Zynga? [View article]
    This person whoever they are ,are obviously shorting zynga.
    What I omitted from my earlier post is that also zynga have one and a half billion in the bank plus a building they paid two hundred million cash for.
    The guy who wrote this article obviously has an agenda and shouldn't be allowed to post here.
    I have made a complaint about this article to zynga

  • Zynga - The Largest Poker Game For Traders [View article]
    i think zynga have played a blinder here
    very clever move on their part
    i agree with al the points in the above article too
    look the news is out and the stock has fallen and heavily recovered.
    ths will be back where it iwas or near by the 24th
    then they will put some put better figures out and farmville 2 looks like its a hit and also their talking about cost cutting which the market will like.
    they have taken the sting out of the results early so when they give them the market will be reporting their new positive news,
    ie farmiville 2 being a hit,company cost cuts(r and d)hasbro deal etc and mobile
    the share price will be three dollars by the end of this mth
    im in here becasue i belive there will be a takeover at some stage
    im here at 2.76.for 10 grand and am very optimistic

  • After a slow start, Zynga's (ZNGA -3.2%) FarmVille 2 now claims 18M monthly active users (MAUs), according to AppData. Zynga's efforts to aggressively cross-promote the game, which features better graphics than its predecessor and a stronger emphasis on social interaction, seem to be paying off. But FarmVille 2 still has a ways to go before it can match the 83M MAUs claimed by the original FarmVille at its peak. [View news story]
    mau means monthly active users
    this stock is a steal at this price
    im putting 10000 pound in tommorow
    this company is cash rich with no debt

  • Glu Mobile: No Longer The Life Of The Party [View article]
    i think you will find gluu come out with a surprise ie buyout soon that will take all by surprise
    look at the huge amount of buying by their main venture capitital fund
    also online gambling is huge in uk and they mentioned another euro company possibly on the horizon
    dont jump ship just as this could take off would be my advice
    small float and no debt
    that speaks volumes to me

  • Is Glu Mobile A Takeover Target? Can Zynga Afford It? [View article]
    Your comments are unfair.
    You set your self up as an analysts and send out blogs to thousands of people purporting to be fact which then influences investors decisions whether to buy a trade or not.
    You must check your facts or I feel it will need to be brought the attention of seeking alpha.
    The 600.000share holdin by f9 entertainment was part of deal when griptonite was taken over by gluu.
    They bought the company out for over 6.000000 shares in glue.
    As part of the deal 600.000were held in an escrow account and would be released to the parties if they met certain performance targets.which obviously they did and they were released to them in nov last year and were reported on last week.
    Hope this clear

  • Is Glu Mobile A Takeover Target? Can Zynga Afford It? [View article]
    I first thought they were 600'ooo just bought .
    But on closer inspection of the sec form ,I notice that they mention an earlier holding of aug 9th 2011
    I was then left with the impression that they were updating the market as to what's left of their holding.
    So,I'm afraid i tend to agree with the other poster.
