Zynga Zooms on The Lorax: Tech Winners & Losers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Universal Studios Home Entertainment and Zynga (ZNGA - Get Report) are joining forces to celebrate the release of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax on BlueRay and DVD on Tuesday. The popular Dr. Seuss character will be included in Zynga's Draw Something and Words With Friends to benefit schools across the country.

The major animated motion picture generated over $200 million at the domestic box office this past spring, according to a statement released by Zynga on Monday.

Shares of Zynga rose 8.09% to $2.94 on Monday.

Groupon (GRPN - Get Report) soared 10.02% to $7.25 on Monday. The daily-deal site releases second-quarter earnings next week.
