  • Goldman re-crunches numbers, raises estimates for 'Star Wars'  [View news story]
    Predictions for opening weekend (which always sets a key trajectory for a film) are all over the map.

    The biggest opening weekend this year belongs to "Jurassic World" with $208.8M; what do you think, can "Star Wars" beat it this weekend?

    Still working here; maybe you have a temperamental browser that has trouble with a plus sign?
    At any rate it's just a more focused search on news about CBB and CONE together that can be found in their individual pages as well:

  • Could Comcast make a Sprint/T-Mobile marriage happen?  [View news story]
    Picking up on your No. 2, you don't see the prospect of a hybrid service that could be like Google Fi in the Comcast footprint, and just plain MVNO on the Verizon network outside?

    Or maybe that is answered by your No. 3, an MVNO won't matter for competitive reasons in any case.

  • AT&T spreading fast Internet to 38 more areas  [View news story]
    For our news items, yes -- but our items are outnumbered by what the companies submit as press releases under their tickers.

    BTW, your portfolio views default to "latest," which can be a firehose -- but if you click the boxes at top for "articles" or "news" the PRs are filtered out.

  • Disney +0.5% with FBR Capital bullish on 'Star Wars'  [View news story]
    Re sequel, a bit of brain freeze as I was writing, since I meant to refer to it as a follow-up (in real time, not story time); I changed the wording to clear that up.

    As for the big figure, it was about them casting a wide net around related profits and not grosses. Of course film accounting is notoriously tricky but in the note I saw, FBR is looking (bullishly now) at some kind of whole enterprise profitability specifically, not equating film grosses with profits. "The Force Awakens" might not make it to $2.7B worldwide gross.

    He believes all the "Star Wars" goodness is baked in, though that seems to leave little room for upside surprise and of course actually being short leaves no margin for error ...
