    I was talking to a good friend who knows a lot about video games. He told me that recently ZNGA had put out a game that is basically a complete rip off of another game. He told me that:

    1. If ZNGA is ripping off games like this this early, then they don't have a lot of creativity and that will pose serious problems later down the road and..

    2. They are going to lose a lot of respect in the gaming community if they keep ripping off games this way.

    I'd like to know the name of that game sometime :)

    I'm really hyped about GLUU. No sure thing, but I think earnings will blow out. Stardom is the first game put out by the Blammo! team they acquired, and it's tearing up the charts.

    The name of the game was Dream Heights. Many feel it was a complete rip off of a game called Tiny Tower.

    Yikes, Lanza sold about 1M worth of ACTC on Wed.

    Still holding something like 90% of his shares, but still. Make of that what you will.

    yeah, I'm not taking too much of him selling to heart. With all this red you just have to ask yourself, has anything changed? The science has been proven safe...if not effective and they're injecting more people. This guy from the UK, he's got a 4 year old daughter, I have a feeling in a few months there will be a story about him where he's reading to his kid for the first time.

    Just made a ton on selling GERON today. Bought at near book value 1.40, sold at 2.00 bucks today. Starting to jump after hours, hopefully it wasn't a mistake to sell at 2 :(

    Wanted to get this thread's thoughts...

    I purchased some shares of CHD a while back @ $27.48, it's up at $45 now.

    Trying to figure out how much growth and play this company has in it. I initially bought it because I felt household brands would do real well during the recent recession and liked many of the brands in the portfolio (Arm & Hammer, OxiClean, Trojan, Orajel etc...).

    I could hold onto it a bit longer I think, but would like to increase my position in JNJ (I think their strategy to increase market share in China and South East Asia will really pan out over the next few years)

    Thank you guys in advance.

    In this situation, I would probably play with the houses money and sell most of the position and let the profit ride. The PE is 22 which is rather high and tells me there is not a ton of run left in the price.

    Not thrilled with JNJ, Bristol Meyers may do better in the next year.

    Gaming stocks.....

    I say, EA is a dog, but great upside potential for ATVI.

    Thoughts?

    So, you know there's a problem when you have Resident Evil 6 coming out. There seems to be a brain drain at many of these companies. EA Activision, Activision being the worst. Remember Guitar Hero, remember how big that was back in 07-08. Activision killed it, and they're going to kill the Call of Duty Series too, and with it many other first person shooters.


    Halo 4, give it a rest.
