Zynga? Look, as someone who is addicted to Scramble With Friends, which I play with my daughter daily, I have learned to never pay for anything, and I so enjoy the "for free" aspect of this terrific game. Looks like I am not the only one who won't pay up. I see this company wilting away, as that earnings trajectory seems to be pointing toward losses, not gains. Plus, the fade nature of games -- remember Draw Something from OMGPOP? -- makes this hit-driven business totally unpredictable.
So many stocks have been left for dead when they get to $2, including, recently Nokia (NOK), Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) and RadioShack (RSH). It's a rare bird that can come out of that $2 death trap. The unheralded Sprint is one of them.
Zynga? All I can say is welcome to the graveyard that your Wall Street cheerleaders didn't see coming. Those analysts should be so ashamed for their sins of recommendation that remind me so much of the first Internet wave that crashed on the shore, drowning just about everyone, including the analysts, who told us to come on in because the water's fine.
