Wedbush maintains an 'Outperform' Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA) price target of $7.00 (from $17.00).

Analyst, Michael Pachter, said, "While management previously stated that bookings growth would be weighted towards the second half of the year, implied 2H bookings of $519 – 594 million are actually below 1H bookings of $631 million. Also, 1H adjusted EBITDA of $152 million is greater than the high-end of the 2H implied range, as is 1H EPS of $0.06." (FY12 EPS estimate cut from $0.32 to $0.10 and FY13 from $0.46 to $0.10)

"Notwithstanding the sharply lower guidance, Zynga has some upside, in our view. The company has $1.8 billion in cash and real estate, or $2 per fully diluted share, making its enterprise value close to $1 billion. It is profitable and has tremendous brand equity, suggesting that there is upside to the share price."
