media consolidation is happening and LGF will be a major player in the consolidation. Streaming is going to be BIG - just look at NFLX at their stock price. With Malone and MHR working together and the LGF management team executing we may be looking at some big moves here. GLTA!
It has done well lately, but it has been held down so long with all this good news that eventually we can get to 40. LGF is a long term hold stock as you well know. So "patience" is the word for the day, like with many stocks. If you know how to play the ups and downs, great, but I don't have the stomach or interest to do so. I am expecting a reward that is more than a mutual fund can give me.
See the universe is setting me up for the perfect storm here. On the 20th my 100 june 31 calls expire plus i will be at the rolling stones concert in Pittsburgh pus its the exact day I was introduced to my future wife 3 years ago plus 30 years ago on that day I had my first mountain dew. Also fully loaded on the Sept 33s along with the stock. Sooooo sooner or later the tide changes. Good luck all.
Diversification is a good thing. Over the years I had several opportunities to sell LGF. My wife said I was crazy for not selling at 9, even crazier for holding at 16, so I guess now she would deem me totally our of it. The way I see it I will maintain a position unless the fundamentals are breaking down. The fact is I see the current fundamentals of LGF improving. best wishes.
I had to chase this stuck up to 12 dollars a share, and continued to build my position. Now, I did sell some shares recently because I need a new car. And, thankfully I can afford a nice one. Holding on to the rest of them, expecting it to continue to go up.

I have a hunch that the Witch Hunter is going to be the new franchise- just the actors alone will draw in millions. Now You See Me is gonna be huge. Elaborate on the major call points that you found exciting- doubt I will take the time. I thought China was going to bring in an extra 80 million or so with licensing for TV and movie content. Maybe the TV unit doing so well was helped by that.
Thank you for the response. I got into LGF Feb/Mar 2012. I am up well and keep hanging in because it appears to have a strong future. The past 12 - 18 mths have been a bit frustrating but I feel this has a good chance of climbing higher. I have never posted on Yahoo before now and always follow you and retiredarmyjoe. Enjoy the banter between you guys. Yes the fake secondary did annoy me too.

What's your view of the Learning Markets? I have Roth's and Coverdell's with Scottrade but have never used the Learning Markets. BTW, I'm not selling below $100. :)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Good to be hopeful, it would be nice. This is the kind of company you keep in your portfolio for the long haul, but be mindful of taking profits along the way, as you are well aware Retired. There are also good buying opportunities too if you following it closely and it did give up plenty of time to get it on sale. How many times in the last 2 years did it get into the 20's, 6-7 times?
We get EPS in excess of $4 per share. With and EPS of $4 we should be looking at a PPS of $80. Just think NFLX currently sports an EPS of less than $4 and is priced at 660 per share.
Vin Diesel’s upcoming sword-and-sorcery adventure, The Last Witch Hunter, is apparently conjuring so many good feelings with Lionsgate Entertainment, that they’re already green lighting a sequel.
The word comes from Diesel himself, who broke the news to his fans earlier today. In his announcement, Diesel also seemingly revealed that Liongate has hopes for a multi-picture franchise surrounding The Last Witch Hunter's world. Referred to as “The Axe and Cross franchise,” by Diesel, it sounds like Lionsgate has plenty of Witch Hunter films ready to go.
Directed by Brek Eisner, The Last Witch Hunter follows Kaulder (Diesel), an immortal witch hunter who must strike down ancient, evil, witches in modern times. The film also stars Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, and Michael Caine. It hits theaters on October 23.
