Zynga Slides For Second Straight Day

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Shares of online gaming specialist Zynga (ZNGA - Get Report) are sliding again today, down 8.6% in early Monday trading.

After the close of trading on Friday, Morgan Stanley announced a 16% stake in the company, owning just over 16 million shares of the social networking gaming company.

Zynga, which makes the popular FarmVille game, went public in December amidst much scrutiny. The company relies on just a small percentage of its users for the majority of its revenues.

That prompted research firm Macquarie Group to launch coverage on the company last week with a neutral rating. Zynga was the third major social networking company to go public last year, behind LinkedIn (LNKD - Get Report) and Groupon (GRPN - Get Report).

Analyst Ben Schachter wrote that he was worried about Zynga being overly dependent on a small percentage of its users for the majority of its revenues. According to Schacter, only about 2.2% of the company's 150 million users pay for its games.

Zynga shares were falling sharply Monday, down 8.7% to $8.03.
