The company is having a strong run with two successfully acquisitions of Turkish gaming studios in 2020

After a particularly rough patch following its 2011 IPO, Zynga Inc (ZNGA) has managed to stabilize as a company and become a leading player in mobile gaming with a management strategy based on a combination of solid in-house game development and pertinent strategic acquisitions.

The past few months have been mixed for the company. While the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in increased game time and significant growth in in-app purchases, it also resulted in advertisers slashing budgets, which affected ad revenues. Also, Apple's new policy to curb access to users' unique Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) could have

IPO excitement has overvalued the stock

Technology initial public offerings have proven to be among the best investment opportunities to capitalize on in recent years. Advances in technology and the continuous shift toward data-driven economies have played their part, causing the number of tech startups going public to increase.


As recent history has shown, however, not all emerge strongly from their IPOs. Companies like Twitter Inc. (TWTR), Zynga Inc. (ZNGA) and Groupon Inc. (GRPN) have struggled to live up to their potential. As such, there is always a level of risk involved. In addition, even after an impressive performance during

Company has significant upside potential

Electronic Arts (EA) reported its fourth quarter earnings on May 10 and the company has been steadily gaining since its earnings report, adding 17.5% to trade at $75.80.

Absence of entry barriers will prevent any company from dominating mobile gaming industry

I have been bearish on mobile gaming companies for quite some time. I have already urged investors to stay away from Glu Mobile (GLUU) and to short King Digital Entertainment (KING). Investors should sell Zynga (ZNGA).

Transition is difficult

The company is in transition phase as it is moving away from Facebook (FB) to independent games. While the mobile gaming industry is growing significantly, Zynga’s transition has been rough. The waning popularity of Zynga’s hit games, along with terrible execution on the company’s behalf, has made the transition process difficult.

Zynga’s Monthly Active Users and Daily Active Users have fallen

Declining popularity of Candy Crush will slowly cause King's share price to decline

King Digital Entertainment (KING) may appear one of the most undervalued stocks on the market, but the company’s future prospects do not look bright. Activison Blizzard (ATVI) recently announced that it will be acquiring King Digital in a deal worth $5.9 billion. As a result, King’s shares surged 30% since the time the acquisition was announced.

Despite the massive uptick, King is still trading at 10x trailing earnings, and the stock appears cheap on paper, but it is a value trap that investors should ignore. Activison has overpaid for the acquisition, and it will be nearly impossible for the company

21Vianet Group Inc. (VNET), one of the world’s leading Bitcoin (BTCS) startups, has announced ambitious plans to promote the Bitcoin digital currency in an expansive scale by introducing a series of embeddable chips that will enable consumer gadgets like smartphones and other internet-connected devices to earn the currency online by mining. On March 15, another bitcoin venture, the news service provider Coin desk, revealed that 21 Inc. had accumulated a record-breaking and staggering $116 million in funds with a series of investments from Silicon valley majors like founders of Expedia Inc. (EXPE), Dropbox Inc., PayPal Inc., Zynga Inc.

Zynga (ZNGA) develops social games that work stand-alone on mobile phone platforms and on the Internet through social networking websites such as Facebook (FB). Although the company has been performing terribly ever since it went public, it is tipped to turn around thanks to its new mobile initiative. Zynga’s increased focus on mobile gaming and reducing dependence on old hits like Farmville point to the fact that the company’s stock may have finally bottomed, which is why I believe this is the right entry point for opportunistic investors.

While some investors may be worried about the departure of the CEO

Shares of Zynga (ZNGA) fell 0.8% to be valued at $2.44 on Thursday, reacting to a press release announcing that previous CEO Mark Pincus is talking to former executives in order to come back to the company. Pincus would take back the CEO position from former executive Don Mattrick.

Mobile gaming giant King Digital Entertainment Plc. (KING) has been in the news recently and not for the best of reasons. Allegations of failure to disclose the true number of paying players of its wildly successful game, Candy Crush Saga, by an investor are a matter of legal scrutiny and the verdict will take a while to come. But even as per the complaint, the allegations of wrongly reported figures of paid users has already been factored into the stock price by the market. Even for an industry that is generally doing badly at the bourses; this fact may be

"Candy Crush" maker King Digital Entertainment (KING) got a major certificate of upgrade from JP Morgan (JPM), as it was given the "Overweight" rating and the target stock price was readjusted to $20. These developments come after the financial services firm mentioned that there would be significant growth opportunities, which would present a strong outlook based on the "Candy" franchise of games King’s Digital makes and the upcoming series expected to be released during the course of 2015. The effect of this information immediately pushed up the stock price by 3.89% and was seen rallying at around $15.48 a share.

The casinos and resorts industry has been under tremendous pressure over the last few quarters as the various companies involved continue to soak in debt. The biggest challenge is not actually revenue generation but rather declining profit margins.

However, with the emergence of online gambling in the U.S and the continued legalization, more slot companies have moved to augment their businesses with online gambling.

Some have launched their own online gambling platforms while others have opted for partnership opportunities with already established online gambling companies mainly from Europe.

At some point a couple of years ago, real money online gambling

Zynga (ZNGA) stock has dropped about 40% since the start of 2014 because of a steep fall in users, growing losses and an absence of new hit games, and it doesn't appear the fall will end at any point in the near future. Zynga posted a more extensive final-quarter loss than the prior year and expected revenue for its present first quarter beneath analysts' estimates.

The organization reported that the quantity of Zynga game players declined in the final quarter. Daily active users tumbled to 25 million from 27 million from a year prior, monthly active users fell 4 million

Zynga (ZNGA) stock has plunged almost 30% since the start of 2014, because of a mass migration of users, broadening losses, and an absence of new hit diversions.

Toward the end of the second from last quarter, Zynga had 112 million monthly active users (MAUS) and 26 million daily active users (DAUS). That is down from 133 million MAUS and 30 million DAUS in the earlier year quarter. Revenue fell 13% year-over-year to $177 million as it posted a net loss of $57 million, keeping it on track to lose over $200 million before the end of financial 2014. This

Glu Mobile (GLUU) has a very volatile year. The stock reached an all-time high of $7.6 and then fell steeply to under $4. Investors bid up the stock in anticipation of sustained revenue and its upcoming games; however, the waning popularity of several games and the underperformance of the Kim Kardashian game contributed widely to Glu’s downfall. The stock is now trading at just off $4 and given the trends in the mobile gaming industry, I think Glu Mobile is a stock worth considering.

Glu Mobile is a small company (when compared to other mobile gaming companies) but has a

Zynga (ZNGA) has been a consistently bad stock for investors since its IPO back in 2011. The arrival of new CEO Don Mattrick hasn’t changed much as the company has lost almost half of its value since his arrival. Moreover, the multimillion dollar acquisition of NaturalMotion hasn’t shown any rewards and as a result investors have started to lose confidence in the company.

Toward the end of Q3, Zynga had 26 million daily active users (DAUs) and 112 million monthly active users (MAUs). The figure dropped from 30 million DAUs and 133 million MAUs as compared to Q3 of last
