  • Where To Be Invested In The Current Choppy Market [View article]
    I have a EPS TTM vs. Prior TTM of 188%. Look forward not to the past - We note RGC's best first-quarter results in its history fueled by a 16% surge in box office attendance, thanks in part to a broad and diverse film slate led by The Hunger Games. With a record domestic opening of Marvel's The Avengers kicking off a summer movie season that features what we consider a strong mix of
    franchise films with built-in audiences, current trends could presage a record 2012 domestic box office featuring 35 3D releases, in our view. After completing its targeted 3D buildout, RGC seems to us on track for a full digital conversion in 2012 or early 2013.

    Our 12-month target price of $16 reflects an EV/EBITDA multiple of 7.3X our 2012 EBITDA estimate, consistent with recent private market transactions. We see ample financial flexibility for sustainable dividend payout -- recently yielding 5.9% and averaging nearly 70% of free cash flow over the past three years.

    You decide?

  • How To Buy Cheap Natural Gas Assets With A High Dividend Yield [View article]
    The article clearly explains: "The best trade on natural gas today is to buy cheap assets and wait until their value increases. The natural gas companies have dropped in price along with the market price of natural gas. However, you will be confronted with an uncertain amount of time for natural gas market prices to increase to normal price levels." The idea is to buy assets that are cheap and with for them to turn up. This is classic value investing based on low natural gas prices.

    The article also states, "Dividends will vary based on production, price and costs." This is not meant to be misleading to readers.
