Zynga Inc (ZNGA): More Cuts at This Gaming Company

While the company is creating casual games, like The Simpsons: Tapped Out, it has also used the mobile and casual arenas to broaden the reach of core titles. For example, Need for Speed and FIFA have both been ported to the space. That should help the company’s core titles reach new audiences.

As the new game systems come out, casual gamers will see these now familiar titles and, perhaps, buy the full games as they look to the Xbox and PlayStation to handle more living room duties.

Outside the box

EA’s shares have fallen from their highs in the $70s, but have started to turn up recently. If the company’s changing makeup works, sales could quickly rebound later this year. That would mean potential upside for investors who get aboard now.

Reuben Brewer has no position in any stocks mentioned. The Motley Fool recommends Nintendo.
