    cover at $10 in Winter: This is short all mighty

    After June flops of "Turbo" this company has a long dead silence of no movie release until March of 2014. In conjunction w selloffs at the end of each year, DWA will suffer the worse wrathe. 9 months of silence will kill the stock.

    • if you wait to sell after June, thinking that Turbo will do well and may help the stock, you will be too late. Smart longs will exit before Turbo release; no one in his right mind would hold millions of shares through 9 months of silence.
      "Turbo" from the look of the trailer will most likely be a bit better than the Guardians, but not even close to the expectation of the Croods.

      • "9 months of silence"...??? Do you really believe the company shuts down for 9 months? Nothing else happens during that time, everyone goes on break for 9 months, no revenues come in, no sales, blah blah blah, for nine months. Crazy. There has never been any severe drop due to a gap in movie releases. Money still trickles in.

        Just FYI - this is not the first time DWA has had a large gap in movie releases.
