  • 'The Wizard Of Oz' Coming To IMAX Theatres: Follow The Yellow Brick Road In Your Portfolio [View article]
    IMAX is still growing internationally and has a huge backlog of committed theaters. I become more bullish every month it seems on this stock I have owned for over five years. Huge 2015 coming up and the re-release of several movies gives the company a huge release schedule. First regional movies coming in India and other regions too. New Chinese movie regulations to allow more imports benefits IMAX more than other companies.

    Trading at $10 would only represent 10x this year's earnings, which seems incredibly low for a growth stock. While shares may be a little high, I think they blow past earnings and see a nice rally. I also think with several investor presentations coming up, we will see some analyst coverage or upgrades.

    Thanks for reading and the kind words,

  • Service Corporation International: Funeral Operator Could Bring Your Portfolio To Life [View article]
    To both the comments, I think the company is at the beginning of a return to high prices. The backlog sets the company up for guaranteed earnings in the future. The beginning of the baby boomer population is a catalyst that will drive this company higher as more people pre-plan funerals. Expect the backlog to continue to grow.

    Thanks for reading,

  • Lions Gate Entertainment Success At Cannes Film Festival Will Reward Shareholders [View article]
    Ender's Game and Divergent are being underestimated by analysts. Two potential multiple movie franchises to replace Twilight and eventually The Hunger games. In November, Ender's Game and Catching Fire. Lions Gate could get #1 for four or five weeks straight

  • Could 'The Hobbit' Help Redbox Instant And Coinstar Shares? [View article]

    Thanks for you input. I have not signed up for the Instant yet. I do now I spend over $5 a month on four rentals from kiosks, so hoping that maybe there is $3 worth of streaming I would enjoy.

    I think the streaming library will get stronger soon.

  • Pfizer Will Reward Shareholders With Zoetis Spin-Off [View article]
    Wow come home from work to lots of comments. I understand that a lot of you are long time Pfizer fans and also some of you own stock in both companies. In my opinion, Zoetis offers the growth and Pfizer has the dividend yield.

    I also think that everyone will end up happy in the long run. Pfizer will exchange shares of Zoetis through this initial offering and lower its share count. Pfizer will then use a special dividend to exit its remaining position.

    Pfizer is trying to lower its share count and will update 2014 guidance after the exit of its 80.2% stake.

    If you don't want shares of Zoetis, don't exchange your Pfizer shares. If you are waiting to get rewarded, collect your 3% yield, and be ready to enjoy boosted earnings per share and additional share buybacks in 2014.

    Thanks for reading and the comments,

  • Manchester United Still A Buy Despite Sir Alex Ferguson's Retirement [View article]
    They finished in 21st in 1973-1974. My error. Thanks for the correction and thanks for reading.

    Absolutely correct with expectations for top four to go to Champions League. The broadcast revenue is now expected for that prestigious league.

    You write like you're someone who works with Carnival, so I'll stop wasting my time.
