Zynga Just Folded a Terrible Hand. Should You Buy Now?

Shares of Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA  ) closed down 14% on Friday after the social-game maker issued weak third-quarter guidance that disappointed investors, and also shocked speculators by announcing it's abandoning efforts to pursue a license for real-money gaming in the United States.

Curiously enough, in the video below, Fool contributor Steve Symington says he actually agrees with the Zynga's decision to focus on its biggest opportunity with freemium social games. But that doesn't necessarily mean you should go out and buy shares of Zynga on this pullback. To hear why, please watch the video below for Steve's full take, then let us know what you think in the comment box below.
