Same script? Lions Gate pops off Divergent buzz


Piper Jaffray's James Marsh says social media tracking indicates a strong response for upcoming Lions Gate (LGF +5.8%) film Divergent.

The analyst forecasts the film will deliver a $150M domestic box office take and another $120M from global audiences.

If trading action on LGF leading up to the film's March release follows the script from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, shares will pop off the early buzz then deflate just after the premiere.

    If the trailer was any guide, I would recommend buying stocks of barf bag manufacturers.

     

    On another note, guess which analyst got some invites to some glitzy Hollywood parties?
