Zynga Struggles as Rival King.com Scores Big Hit

Tickers Mentioned:

Online social gaming company, Zynga Inc. (ZNGA), may be on their last life. Without a hit game in recent years the company is falling far behind its competitors like King.com, makers of the latest gaming craze Candy Crush. With the rising popularity of King.com, Zynga is feeling the pressure to produce another hit game.

In mid-August Zynga company experienced a shake up after the resignation of chief operating officer David Ko. New CEO Don Mattrick also wrote in a memo to employees that Chief Technology Officer Cadir Lee and Chief People Officer Colleen McCreary are also leaving the company. Mattrick had found success running Microsoft’s division responsible for the Xbox video game console before being named CEO of Zynga on July 1.

Although the company has potential in the future with the growth of mobile application games, analysts still fear that Zynga faces a massive concentration risk. Janney Capital Market analysts have set the price target for the company’s share at $2.50. 

Zynga is the world’s largest developer of social games and made a name for itself with hit games such as Zynga Poker, Farmville, and Words with Friends. Despite the success of these games, the former gaming powerhouse failed to make an appearance on the current 10 top grossing games list on iTunes.

The Current 10 Top Grossing iPhone Games:

10. Megapolis by Social Quantum

In Megapolis players have the ability to create their own cities and build airports, hotels, railway stations, and more.

5. The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth by Kabam
