Zynga stock falls following game launches
Two game launches in two days sends Zynga stock tumbling
The share price of social giant Zynga suffered another drop following the second game launch since it went public last month.
When the NASDAQ closed yesterday Zynga shares were trading at $8.91 each - slightly up from the day's low of $8.85, but significantly lower than its opening price of $9.19.
After the launch of two games in two days - Hidden Chronicles on Facebook, and Scramble With Friends on mobile - a drop in share price is unexpected, and casts further doubt on Zynga's IPO valuation.
When Zynga went public in December its shares were priced at $10 each, but dropped as low as $8.75 in the first week of trading. Since then, the company's share price has remained consistent, reaching a high of $9.75 on December 27.
