  • Dark Knight Index: Batman's Success Really Matters [View article]
    Thank you all for your interest in this article.

    Mr. Muller: Yes, CKEC is definitely another exhibitor that could be worth investigating. I did not list it along with these other companies because of CKEC's smaller market cap relative to RGC and CNK. Unless I am writing specifically about stocks with smaller market caps, I tend to limit my screen to larger companies.

    DocEagle, Mr. MacDonald, rpscott, djoln: Thank you for addressing the erroneous information in this article. I misinterpreted the chart and will make sure not to repeat that mistake in the future.

    Hank890: Thank you for sharing your take on this series of films. Indeed, Hollywood (and filmmakers around the world) definitely have a long history of infusing divisive ideologies into their story-telling. From Birth of a Nation to Sullivan's Travels to V for Vendetta and The Dark Knight. I think this is a reflection of the importance of an ethos, a worldview, or an ideology in the story-telling process. The filmmakers must have a clear understanding of this worldview in order to create a film that is narratively and stylistically consistent and legible. In my opinion, the beauty of cinema is in its ability to communicate complex ideas through visual story-telling. And, as with any other media, it is the responsibility of the individual to take into account as many view points as possible in order to make the best-informed decision. Moreover, with this film and with all other films, I believe that a film, especially well-made films, are worth much more than their political ideologies. Separating the art from the "propaganda" or political bent of a film is how I can watch films, like those of Sergei Eisentstein, from as objective a view point as possible, in order to understand and appreciate the incredible craft of all those involved in the filmmaking process. Battleship Potemkin is one of the most visually stunning and compelling films from the silent era that I have ever seen. I think it is a wonderful film. And I am definitely not a Stalinist.

    One last note on the "Marxist propaganda" in TDKR. I would like to point to the fact that Bane is the villain in this film. And, as with the previous entry in this film, it is made very clear that Batman's ultimate goal is to leave behind his life as a vigilante while freeing Gotham from corruption and saving the citizenry from the totalitarian grip of super villains. Therefore, I propose that Batman is a freedom fighter, fighting for the life, liberty, and freedom from oppression of the citizens of Gotham, which seems to be very closely linked to the archetypal American patriot story. Had this film actually featured a Euro-inspired Marxist hero, we would likely have had a mass hero (like in Eisenstein's "Strike" or "Potemkin") rather than an iconic superhero that loves to work alone.

  • 6 Highly Undervalued Stocks With Bullish Short Trends [View article]
    Dave, take a look at our blog You'll find it offers similar screens with more in depth explanations.

    The ratio of stock price divided by free cash flow per share (P/FCF) is often used to compare the value of companies. As a general rule, P/FCF under 15 (or price is less than 15 times free cash flow per share) is considered “undervalued”, which means the stock may be trading at too low of a price and may rise in the future to properly reflect the free cash flow generated by the firm.

    The institutional data reflects the most recently completed 13-f cycle, or the fourth quarter of 2011. The data is referred to as the 'current quarter' because the data comes in on a continuing basis and is constantly updated.

  • 5 BRIC Stocks Being Snapped Up By Insiders [View article]
    We often run screens on one data point (such as insider buying or institutional selling) because it allows for a sufficient number of satisfying stocks, from which investors can begin their own analysis. We write both positive and negative screens with the goal of presenting an interesting starting point for investors.

    Thanks for your feedback, we will keep these issues in mind going forward.

  • 15 Metal Commodity Stocks Undervalued by Enterprise Value [View article]
    Hi A.S. Montreal - the statement is based on the company's beta. Since it's around beta = 3, it implies that, statistically, the stock is 3 times more volatile than the general market.

    Hope that helps!
