Shares of Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) hit a new 52-week high today, after CEO Don Mattrick spoke at a Morgan Stanley conference discussing mobile plans, as well as the idea of the company's entrance into real-money gambling. The company also stated yesterday that it would be rebooting three of its most important franchises, FarmVille, Zynga Poker and Words With Friends.
In this video from Tuesday's Tech Teardown, host Erin Kennedy and Motley Fool tech and telecom bureau chief Evan Niu discuss several of the strategic moves Zynga is making at the moment as it continues to focus on a turnaround. Evan points to Zynga's struggles to transition from its early success on the Facebook platform over to mobile, and how other gaming companies with the "freemium" business model may be eclipsing Zynga with better execution on mobile, and leaving the company behind.
