Eva Dimenson - Well thats why their not in the top 20!

buy = sell

outperform = sell

hold = sell it ASAP

overweight = dump this turd like a fatso on a toilet

market perform = sell this and the market index ETF


sell = BUY on dips just like the prop traders


only trust analysts who have their retirement savings on the line.

Careful, Aldous -- sharing such privileged Street arcana with the hoi polloi [ Muppets ], may precipitate a carefully-placed banana peel on a subway platform, complimented by a brisk push to the back.

Dermasolarapaterraphatrima's picture

what they MEANT to say is it's a buy at 50 cents.

EVA Dimension, are they even sell side?

notbot's picture

It's a quant-driven rating, I think...not even a human.

Muppet Pimp's picture

I think you got it....the machine had a better rating than the analysts, lol!

They are an intergalactic planetary firm.


Where is the zero target price?

It priced in virtual dollars.

To the moon!

Attractive? WTF?

Yep. It reminds of the sign I saw on the door of an office for the National Association of Telemarketers: Absolutely NO soliciting permitted

I give up, is it Michael Pachter from Wedbush with a $17 price target on July 19th?

He was only off by 90% in a four day market window.

Or is it Daniel Ernst from Hudson Square with a "buy" recommendation and a price target of $14?

He's only 85% off, and after all it isn't his money.

I'd bet CALPERS went all-in last Friday.

Might have to go w Atul Bagga at Lazard and his call YESTERDAY for $10. No, you're right. It's Pachter.

Squid Vicious's picture

LOL perfect, anyone who listened to him is now a BAGGA-holda

I am thrilled that Michael Pachter is getting his due credit. This guy is an arrogant douche, who understands exactly nothing about game development and/or the related industry.

GeoffreyT's picture

Y'all might recall that Pachter is the stupid cunt who dissed Mark Zuckerberg for refusing to wear a suit to the Facebook dog & pony show (the IPO promotional tour).

I have no view on Zuckerberg (or Facebook), but it's good that he doesn't think he should be taken seriously despite refusing to don $3k of bespoke suitings.


As I said at the time (see http://bit.ly/OFYeLd ):

So Michael Pachter showed the world he likes playing Dress-Ups like a fucking 5 year old girl. 

How come we're not past the idiotic idea that someone gains credibility by putting on a fucking $3000 suit?

Answer: by putting on a suit, retard Epsilon ticket-clippers like Pachter obtain credibility that they do not deserve. Simpletons are impressed by the idea that he appears to be able to afford a 'decent' suit - even if he's up to his balls in debt.

Obsession with what you wear is a hallmark of a shallow Valley-Girl/Kardashian mentality, that should be left where it belongs on the women's style pages along with tooth whiteners, hair dye, botox, face-paint and stripper heels.

I'm not particularly a fan of Zuckerbrg - I dunno enough about the guy. But on this issue, he's 100% right: the Street is FULL of people with nice suits who are full of shit. I'm certain that Stanford and Madoff looked a million bucks.

As my PhD supervisor ("Dicko") once said when he got an impromptu visit from the head of risk management at a major bank as he ("Dicko") was preparing for cricket practice... "Don't worry, Bob. I might be in sports kit, but I'm still as smart as I am when I wear one of those stupid monkey suits you guys insist on wearing."

("Dicko" did his PhD at Harvard, and was Leontief's grad student the year the big L won the Nobel Prize [1973]... he [Dicko] subsequently taught at Harvard, and is now the guy behind the US ITC's "USAGE" model. Doubtless he wore a suit when he testified in front of Congress on the economic consequences of immigration policy)

Fuck Pachter - it does not surprise me in the least that such a shallow fucktard makes such a lamentable call.

Don't beat around the bush Geoff - tell us what you really think of him

fonzannoon's picture

I am going to go with the guy with the most douchebaggy name so that must be Heath.

q99x2's picture

I can't even tell if there are two analysts listed or a first and last name or a last and first name. They must all be crimminals.

Is it IPO Financial who apparently have the entire 'Team' involved in coming to a 'Buy' recommendation?

Jendrzejczyk's picture

Needham & Co. has got to be the answer. Everybody should already have canned hams buried in the back yard.

The winner is...... Goldman Sux

That is the answer to the question above.

I'm going with ATUL BAGGA from Lazard...with a name like that he at least has a fall back career at Home Depot.

Muppet Pimp's picture

Noticed that Lazard and Stifel Nicholas slapped buy rec's on it yesterday (to unload after they got a whisper number)?

how is virtual farms and myspace a 'sector'


sector perform is the odd one out

Darkness's picture

What was his name and why is it not listed? 

bob_dabolina's picture

There is no name b.c it is a computer.

The computer is the only one who got it right. All the other analysts were wrong. Per EVA Dimensions (last on the list)
