Zynga: What Investors Should Be Watching

When Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA  ) first went public, the excitement around the company's innovative business model and huge number of active users led to what many felt to be a very overvalued public offering, and share prices subsequently crashed hard afterwards. Now that the company is so cheap, though, is this the real time to buy Zynga and profit from a rebound, or is its business model just too unproven and unreliable? In this video, Motley Fool tech analyst Andrew Tonner gives you several of the metrics you need to be watching to see which way this company is really headed.

Zynga's post-IPO performance has been dreadful, and investors are beginning to wonder if it's "game over" for this newly public company. Being so closely related to the world's largest social network can be a blessing and a curse. You can learn everything you need to know about Zynga and whether it's a buy or a sell in our new premium research report.

    I don't understand the fool site at all because, I've been investing and trading since 1980 and although, I could be wrong since not keeping track on all articles and stocks but those, I do watch, the fool is usually wrong with is worrisome when they say someone good about a company that I own yet great when something negative of one I own.

    This stock in question has 1.3 BILLION in cash and only 100 million debt so almost zero debt. A good business model going for it and worst case in a few years if it didn't work out and they were down to only 800 million in cash, they could buy up other things or change business model.

    Unlike FB, this company is not STUCK in one area. I'd never buy FB because it will end like Myspace did imo thus; a horrific investment long term yet this company was sold off into the dirt for no good reason and will trade at $10.00 this very year which is a 500% gain! IMO and should be at $20 within 36 months imo as they branch out into other social media sites that are popping up all the time leaving FB in the dust and they can stay on FB too, Myspace or do their own site or anything.

    This is a great company. They earn money, P/E and PEG look good to me, huge cash on hand to last years in a slowdown but economy is improving finally as in public but recession ended three years ago going by math, I see of Accounting. This stock like most is OVERBOUGHT and of course, a pullback is normal and that's when negative subjective news like this comes out so certain people can hope to push it down more to go short but government is cracking down on that and should.

    Shorts will get burned on this one; AKS and AMD. They already got burned on ANR as I predicted. JMO

    I'm not a Broker but was Real Estate Broker different story, do not say; buy, sell or hold, give advice etc. My opinions only and all I have going for me is experience of 33 years which is three decades and more than many are old giving advice and I do just fine in the markets as my main job and am also a writer and was business owner of corp myself; CEO and President.
